I am completely in line with that. I actually wanted to stay in Singapore and had no intention of leaving but the company I worked for moved me and either I moved with them or had to find another job to stay. I couldn't find a job at that point in time so I had to relocate. Now I found one and hopefully I can go back and stay.Mi Amigo wrote:The other thing to keep in mind is that PR stands for Permanent Residence, so it (and citizenship too, obviously) is intended for people who genuinely want to settle permanently in Singapore. Unless / until you are certain that you want to do that (and not continue to 'move around to other countries'), you would do better to stick to an Employment Pass, or if you meet the new application criteria, apply for a PEP.
The government, citizenry and genuine long-term resident population are all very unhappy about PR 'abusers' who pretend they want to settle here in order to get PR, but then disappear off to another country as soon as a better offer comes along. I'm not necessarily saying that you fall into that category, but this is how a PR application might appear if you were to submit one soon after returning here.
It is not that complicated; different systems work in different ways, I'd expect a PR to know how the system works before signing in.Wd40 wrote:Sometimes I wonder, whether the true meaning of PR holds valid for a tiny city state like Singapore. The OP is a perfect example of how hard it is to find a job here, when you lose one, compared to say a larger country with several cities.
Add to that, the fact that once you lose your job, there is no jobless benefits or any kind of social security so I wonder, when a PR loses his job and hence quits the country is it abuse or not.
