You need to lighten up and realize that getting a degree at NUS is a feather in anybody's cap and the foreigners who make it into NUS are the cream of the crop from the countries they came from. Those that finish are worth even more. It's no wonder that the government offers them PR. Sure a lot take it and run or use it as a stepping stone to the US or UK but why not? If you had the ability you would do the same. It's called supply and demand economics.


Sounds a lot smarter then the euroversion, where they let foreigners to come to study, but do not give them work permits after that. So after they got a degree (in some countries for free), they have to go back home or US, who appreciates them more.

Isn't that the purpose of the PR? That's why they made EP (and the likes) dependent on employment with the same firm?

Singapore give P.R. like water! Look at NUS or NTU or the 5 polytechnics in Singapore! Whole hell are flooded with Mainlander Chinese and Indians! They studied and then apply.

After they get Singapore P.R. then they run! Just like you. Indian Citizen got HK P.R. then run to Singapore. Now the same situation applies to Singapore. Once they got P.R. then run.

The ex-Singapore Maritime Academy's director is an Indian. Wah....the academy flooded with Indians! Worst, ex-Singapore Maritime Academy's director got his U.S. P.R and run!

Sick man! SIA rather train Indians and Malaysians then own local breed Singaporeans to be SIA stewardess/steward and pilots! Sillypore!


I did my undergrad in NTU and was invited to apply for PR as soon as I started working on an EP here. I've been working here 6 years now with a PR and I haven't run...yet :lol:

That's because there are almost no pretty SG girls left in Singapore. And the few that are left can't string an english sentence together.

R&L,

I hope you were just being facetious.

It was not the intended purpose of the Gov't when granting PR. They grant PR with the hopes that you will grow to adopt the country and want to eventually sink your roots here. This is the same in all countries. Why should they give PR just for that purpose? They could just give 6 or 12 month ltsvp's couldn't they? Then they wouldn't have to let them partake in some of the subsidies that are available to citizens & PR's.
