When should we apply for citizenship

Post by SGP » Sun, 08 Apr 2012 1:27 am

Hi all,

We have been living in singapore for 2 years now; last 6 months as PR. We are seriously considering taking up citizenship here, plan to be here for long; probably forever. An advise on when should we apply for Citizenship would be helpful.

Some details about us. We are an Indian family of 3, including our 3 yrs old daughter. Monthly income of around 30k, both myself and my wife are bankers. We are also in the advance stages of buying a property here.


Cheers

Eligibility

The following categories of people are eligible to be considered for Singapore Citizenship:

A person who is at least 21 years of age and has been a Singapore Permanent Resident (SPR) for at least 2 to 6 years prior to the date of application. The SPR who wishes to apply on his/her own merits may approach ICA for a preliminary assessment interview to check his/her eligibility for Singapore Citizenship.
Spouse of Singapore Citizen with a minimum of 2-year residence as a PR and married for at least 2 years preceding the date of application.
Child born outside Singapore where at least one parent is a Singapore Citizen.
