I have come across some of these ex-singaporeans and they are talented and have string of masters etc. I think for a singaporean to excel abroad in their studies, it takes a lot of work and talent. So it is a pity that singapore doesn't want to make use of their talent, and instead hire some foreigners who may not be loyal to the country but for the monetary aspect. Don't bash me, this is just my opinion....
You are entitled to your opinion and I respect that. I am neither for nor against dual citizenship or whatever law that has been designated by SG Gahmen.
I, myself have children that relinquish SG citizenship for foreign ones. They are now studying in Cambridge and MIT respectively.
Singapore law can be perceive draconian and dictatorial in some form or manner by many but that is their right as the ruling Gahmen and there is nothing you and I can do. Either you go with the flow or jump ship.
They have their reasons and you have yours too. This immigration ruling was never going to be a marriage made in heaven.
Parents has to decide which is best for their family in term of future and education etc.
Once decided and take that choice, thick or thin , they have to stick to it as there is no way of turning the back clock.
I made that decision and I ride the wave. Sink or float that is the choice I have made.
We can lament on the loss of talent to SG or whatever but that will not change one bit on SG Gahmen standpoint.
There is no point lamenting on things that cannot be change. I suggest look for other greener pastures.
FYI Many countries recognised only Single Citizenship even USA. Not allowing those talented Ex-Sg to come back and work is to show others and would be ex-Sgers that the Gahmen do not need you but you need SG.
I am not bashing you , just stating what is there for you to see. I and many here cannot teach you on how to run foul with the law, we can only guide and advise you what the law states to the last T and how to manuevre those minefield laid.
Your parent or yourself has to make that call on which road you want to take.If you need other advise, drop a line and we see how best to help you
