Dependent Pass to PR

Post by MahaJ » Mon, 19 Jul 2010 8:38 pm

Hey,
I'm studying in Singapore under a dependant pass as I moved to Singapore a year ago with my family. I had a query regarding my DP.

As I turn 21 in a months time, I believe that my DP will expire and I will have to apply for a Long term visa to stay in Singapore, I wanted to know what are the requirements to apply for a PR. Thanks

Get a job here and see if you are a stayer or abuser or quitter. Wait for two years b4 PR. It is a waste of time and money now give the political climate

If you haven't be given an invitation to apply for PR, you might want to apply and indicate that you want to sign up and do National Service (An obligation that would come with PR anyway unless hired under the Professional & Technical Scheme). That might be the impetus that they need to give it to you. Afterwards, while, citizenship is not assured, it's a good likelihood, with a local degree under your belt as well that it might be granted. The worst they can say is 'no'.

Or, as you mentioned, apply for an LTVP and try to find a job.....
