There was one on here sometime last year. Went back to India due to health reasons. Came back several years later and managed to get an Ep which shock the hell out of me. So, who knows? If your reasons are valid in their eyes then it's obviously possible. I think you might have to talk to an ICA/MOM officer (probably both)

I've got a mate here who was previously a PR for a fair few years, lost he's job so went back to the UK with his CPF which the ICA advised him to take out. A couple of years later his job took him back to Singapore but he managed to get an EP. He totally regrets taking his CPF out now.

Hi Saint,

May I ask why did your friend regret taking his CPF money out? Is there a problem dealing with CPF board the second time round?

Thanks.

I for one, cannot find a better place to park part of my long-term portfolio into liquid reserves that, risk on risk can draw a better rate of return (although that is changing now - to more align with market fluctuations) But for quite a few years now you couldn't beat it. Additionally, was easy to use to buy a flat here as well.
