Might be worth mentioning, in most cases where it is allowed, dual-citizenship is difficult to acquire.

True. Some countries may recognize dual citizenship arising from jus sanguinis (by blood), but rarely in conjunction with jus loci. And if you naturalize, no Asian country will allow you to retain your old citizenship. I have dual citizenship since birth, and still do ( I simply refused to take any pledge of allegiance, ha ha). I'm not going to become a Singaporean citizen because it will require me to give up 2 passports, but getting a PR seems okay.

Dual-Citizenship? In your case it would need to be changed to Multi-Citizenship wouldn't it? :lol:

But Yeah. That's always been my reality check. Quarter of a century here but I'm not giving up the Blue Passport for a single red one.

I believe your case is very much the norm rather than the exception.

I am a Malaysian and despite the proximity and cultural similarities, most Malaysians that I know of who have taken up Singapore PRs do not opt for Singapore citizenships despite lengthy stays in the country.

I don't see the point of acquiring the citizenship for Malaysians. Malaysian passport is fairly flexible and having a SPR, u have the best of both countries.
