Anyone tried "Landed Permanent Residence (LPR) Scheme" ?

http://www.smcmc.com/faqs/faqs3.htm


Applicant and Spouse

a. Identity Card (Front & Back)
b. Passport (Pages 1 & 2 and other pages which contain personal particulars)
c. Birth Certificate
d. Educational & Professional Qualifications (To include transcripts)
e. Current & Previous Employment Letters or Testimonials
f. Salary Slips for the last six months
g. Income Tax returns for the last three years
h. Marriage Certificate




I have everything but "f" coz I left my previous firm and planning to go to grad school.

Did anyone try this LPR and successfully got it ? anyone ? Please share your experience. Thanks a lot.

Bluebel,

Were you in Hong Kong when you applied for it ? What kind of degree did you have and how long did it take to process it ?

I called SMC in Hong Kongl. They told me that if I got 2 degrees from a state university in the US. It should be ok. HK $6,800.

Could you please share your experience as to how you got it ?
many thanks...

Hi Ptcm, got my degree from UK. I also applied through SMC but not from HK office. I think SMC is the appointed official agent to get Singapore LPR. They will assess your qualification before accepting your application. If they say it's ok, most probably you would get it :)

It took me about 2-3 months to get it. If i remember correctly, those without working experience (below 1 year) can apply with half price cheaper compared to those with working experience.

Hope that helps.. :)

LPR scheme

Postby Landed » Thu, 16 Dec 2004 1:11 pm

Hi,

I went through the Landed PR-Approval-in-Principle scheme, the deal is, you apply for the scheme, they approve IN PRINCIPLE, they give you a FIN (Foreign Identity Number), you can stay in Singapore to find a job (within 5 years for HK residents, within 2 years for everyone else), once you find the job (i think must be more than $2500 in monthly salary) then you get your PR pronto. I got my APPROVAL in like 8 weeks, then my PR (Blue Card) within 5 weeks after I found my first job here.

The process is pretty straight forward, I went to SMC also, I remember paying like $550 cuz i applied within one year of graduation, otherwise it's double.

So after u got a job, u go to ICA to report and wait for their letter sent to your Singapore address? Then u bring the letter to ICA again to collect ur Blue Card, rite?

what i heard is the fee is pretty high to get an LPR?
Is there any chance for an Indonesian like me, graduated from indonesian uni to get a full-time job in singapore without getting the LPR first?

Hi Bluebell,

I am narayanan from India, i have got a Masters degree from UK. Do SMC charge just the application fee 1500 for experienced people. Do they assess the document before filing those for LPR.

Thanking you

firefox (from that wonderful Clint Eastwood movie about the Russian plane, right? :) ), please see

http://app.ica.gov.sg/serv_pr/per_res/app_for_pr.asp

In particular, see the "Investors/Entrepreneurs" section.

Also see:
http://www.edb.gov.sg/edb/sg/en_uk/index/our_services/for_individuals.html

In summary, if you have around $700K USD, what you can do, considering your specialist skills, is to propose setting up shop as a Technical Consultant/Consultancy Firm in SG.

i.e., you'd apply under the category of, "Invest at least S$1 million in a new business startup or expansion of an existing business operation"

I'd guess that you would need to work a week drafting a solid business plan to prove that your startup would work/generate income.

I'm new to this, too...So I'm just thinking aloud of what I'd do if I were in your situation, that's all. Hope that helps.

hi guys i see the last posts in this thread were in 2004 and 2007...its 2009 now, i wonder how update and valid some of the information is in this thread? I saw HKD 6400 in there? I got another answer from another thread a while ago saying it costed him S$1600 for the pass. Are the prices still the same?

Anyway I'm 23 and my qualifications are a General Arts degree in Geography from Canada, I have dual citizenship in HK and Canada, so I was just wondering about the price whether its update or not, I have been working for 1.5 years now, taught at a kindergarten for 6 months and now working as a Front Desk Officer at a hotel for a year now. Thanks :)
