No SGC application now?
Let’s see how the Georgia runoff goes, that’ll determine how deep the doo doo will be :wink:

Hey OP. I got a 1 Year REP renewal as well, last week.

Residing in Singapore and haven't left place in 5 years. PR for more than 20 years and in my 30s (single, never married, not male, biiiig South Asian country, no kids). Not employed at the moment though.

It's a bit strange that you've been employed gainfully and only got 1 year and not maybe 3 years :(. However, I have seen many posts here where they got the 5-year renewal and next year, hopefully with the COVID possibly better, here's hoping you get the 5-year one :love:.

My email from them was very worrying and it sounded like they wanted me to wrap up an existing bond and settle any outstanding matters and leave immediately. When I called and inquired, they said my renewal next year depends on if I have a job. When I asked if my PR itself will get cancelled, they said if I don't leave the country, it won't be but I can't come back inside.

When a place lets me know I'm not welcome, I don't know how to move forward. It's been home longer than the place I was born. Many years ago, I went to ask Lavender if I was eligible for SC but they said my salary was too low to even apply, so I never did.

I’m guessing the ideal PR candidate for SC is more likely to be upwardly mobile, the world is their oyster... they probably have many attractive options, of which Singapore is just one. They need Singapore less than Singapore needs them. The opposite is probably true for those who got a lucky approval at the time, especially if they haven’t lived up to the desired potential.
True that :-k.

Edit: On hindsight, I might have only gotten a year because they want me out of here whereas they want OP to apply for SC. The cookie crumbles the way it crumbles and when life gives you 🍋 and so on.
Sorry to hear this. Since they granted you PR under PTS, they expect you to be employed to renew the REP. They are not saying, not welcome, etc.
