About this Event

Brief Introduction

The annual statistics released from the Government in September 2019 confirmed an increase in total Permanent Residency and Citizenship applications in the last year.

Who are these profiles that are getting Approved?

In this seminar, we present to hopeful applicants insights to how they can position their profile better for the authority's consideration. For the first time, we are also inviting Prudential (NexTrend) to present curated financial planning strategies for Foreigners already employed in Singapore and are looking to establish a decent portfolio for the purpose of Singapore PR & Citizenship applications.

Strategizing a Strong Singapore PR / Citizenship Application

  • Common Applicant Motivations
  • Singapore's Population Changes
  • The Selective Immigration policy
  • Official Industry Statistics
  • What is the Singapore Government Looking for?
  • 2019 Case Studies
  • Financial portfolios for Foreigners in Singapore

The demographics of Singapore are shifting over time. Our Citizen population is ageing due to low fertility rates and rising life expectancy. Both ageing and low fertility has profound implications on our economy and society.

To ensure that Singapore remains economically attractive, the Government is looking to various Selective Immigration (Permanent Residence and Citizenship) solutions to support the needs of the country. As documented in the Population White Paper in 2013, the recently released Population in Brief 2019, and various other Population Trend Papers, as one of the most crucial business and economic hub in Asia, it is imperative that Singapore grows to be diverse, with people of different backgrounds and cultures living and working together.
