Getting Singapore PR for my son education

Postby chhiew » Wed, 15 Apr 2009 12:09 pm

Hi,

I am from Johor, Malaysia and one of my wish is to send my son to further study in Singapore's university when he has grown up.

My son is 8 years old now and currently attending local government primary school.

I plan to send him to government primary school in Singapore and follow the education system there and final aim is to see him finish his studies in singapore's university.

Can someone enligthen me on the following:

1. Should i apply for a PR for myself, my son and my wife?
2. What is the advantage or disadvantage? ie. cost of education and immigration restriction?
3. How long does it take to apply a PR and what is the key criteria ?
4. If my son get a PR, does he need to go for the national service?
5. Any important i need to take note?

Really appreciate your help.

Thanks & rgds.

I take it you wish to get PR in Singapore solely to leech the benefits it brings. Fair enough, I guess.

1. Should i apply for a PR for myself, my son and my wife?

That would be a start

2. What is the advantage or disadvantage? ie. cost of education and immigration restriction?

Cost of education depends on the school you wish to send your son. Immigration restriction how?

3. How long does it take to apply a PR and what is the key criteria ?

There are many different avenues for applying for PR, check the Immigration website to find one that would most closely resemble what is best for you

4. If my son get a PR, does he need to go for the national service?

Yes. You want the positives, you need to accept the negatives

5. Any important i need to take note?

Think about the move itself, can you work in Singapore? What can you bring to the table in your application to make immigration think of you as worthwhile.

you, your wife or your son dont have to a PR for your son to study in singapore. all your son need is a student visa. then you or your wife can apply for a long term visa to look after your son.
