Your SPR does not expire , your REP does and it is valid for 5 years. The last three years of this validity must be able to proof income tax return among others. Look up at ICA website for renewal of REP and it will tell you everything you need to know.Chocs0410 wrote:Hello All,
I am working as a senior IT consultant in USA since last few years.Prior to that I worked in Singapore under PR as same for many years and still having good ties with Singapore with good family friends.Also I invested in own Non IT business with ok profit which is ran by employees in Sinagpore while I am in US. And now recently I have got US green card as well.
Yes I am holding Singapore PR and US green card at same time.Eventually I have to give one.If I continue stay in US will soon loose Singapore PR but I can stiill run my business. I am family person with 2 small kids and unable to decide whether to continue in US with good pay/opportunities with green card or go back and settle down in Singapore finding a job there and look after business as well and also near family and friends.
So friends,please share some thoughts on this.
Also I invested in own Non IT business with ok profit which is ran by employees in Sinagpore while I am in US.

Thank you for your inputs. Yes I am the director of Non IT company in S’pore. I am having S’pore REP until June 30th.If I do not go back S’pore before that date, I will have to surrender my SPR (That will not affect Directorship and my business).But they said that if I come back before June 30th and continuously stay in Singapore for a year or more without REP but as a SPR,I can get back my REP.
That is correct on what ICA said. Have you been paying yourself wages in SG or proof of income for the past three years prior REP due date ?
So the decision here I am not able to make is that; shall I migrate back to S’pore ,involved more into business, find a good IT job and settle down there.Or leave the S’pore PR and continue to stay in US where I can earn more having more good opportunities with holding Green Card which I just got it. If now, I leave US and settle down in S’pore, I don’t think so, will migrate back to US with Family for work; may be just visit as I will be having easy entry.
Toss a coin and see which side it flips ? I cannot tell you which way is best as only you can see where the opportunities are. As one business man said to another , I quote " No businessman will teach another business man to make business "
Which is more important to you ? If you have family then it will be harder to decide. You maybe the boss of your own company but your wife is your boss.
If you are single then lay your priorities and opprtunities then decide.
Something has to give and only you can decide.
What would you have done in my situation ??Both countries are equally good to settle down with family.
