Ok fair enough, you are of more benefit to Singapore than it offer you, but just wondering how many times you have rejected their invitation for citizenship as one of my friend who got his PR in 2006 has already need to do it once! For someone who is a PR for 30 years, they must have been exhausted sending out that kind of letter

I've never received one. Nor wanted one. Most who get PR based on family ties aren't sent one. It's the ones on PTS schemes that get the invitation. As I said, I worked offshore so I didn't exist, and as a family tied PR, I am expendable. If I'm in my late 40's and don't have huge investments here, why would they want to offer me citizenship? Doesn't make any sense does it.

Thanks SMS.

My reason for disliking the US is because the government is very very intrusive. It is getting really bad in the last 10 years, basically since 9/11.

I selected Singapore for a potential relocation:
1) Language. I am fluent with both English and Chinese
2) Economic freedom. A lot less regulations than the US
