Permanent Resident through EP, can I apply for my parents?

Postby ms_lee » Tue, 03 Mar 2009 7:30 am

I've heard from a friend that those who becomes SPR through Employment Pass cannot apply for their parents (to become PR). Does anyone know if this is true? I know there's different kind of Employment Passes and I believe I will be getting P1 since my salary will be over $3500 each month. I checked ICA and MOM a few times and can't seem to find any information on it. Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks

I've just put in my pr application yesterday using the 4A form for professional application. You may apply for your spouse and children, but there wasn't a column for parents.

Do check out more though on their website:

You should be able to apply for your parents' PR after you become a Singapore Citizen (i.e. possible a few years after you got your own Singapore PR).
