Marc,

The first 11 years I was in Singapore I was married 10 of them to a Singaporean. Therefore I had a bit of an easier time than you will have as your wife also needs a long term visa that is not tied to you. This may cause some problems or creative accounting as it were. In my case I worked 2 & 1 month rotations so was only in Singapore for 4 weeks as a time out of every 3 months. Back then we only had 30 day visas but it was enough.

Some how I managed to have one local wife, 2 kids and 3 cars here while on a tourist visa. When I finally got my PR the ICA interviewer's jaw almost dropped on his chest when I told him that. He also realized how silly it looked keeping me out of Singapore as I'd been here for 11 years already, Had a local driver's license, kids with dual Citizenship and all my wife & kids subsidies were being paid by others as the govenment was too stupid not to realize that they could get up to 4x the tax dollars by allowing us to have PR and then taxing us on our offshore incomes. I had my PR 2 weeks later.

Things are a bit different now days. So I'm now sure if you could set up a business for here or just how (if you have a local/PR partner this would help immensely but also a PEP may be something to look at as well as it would give you five years but I not sure how the offshore salary would translate into the PEP requirements. I'm afraid I'm just not up on it there anymore. Strong Eagle or UKdesigner may be able to give you some hints there.
