3 Benefits of Hiring a PR Agent Singapore

A country that checks off many boxes, Singapore is often seen as a popular location to settle down in. The bustling city state has something for everyone, whether you are a new family, a couple, or looking for new adventures.

The decision to become a permanent resident in the Lion City is not an easy one. The approval rate has been largely the same for the past three years (approximately 30,000 yearly) since the government tightened the assessment process. While it appears to be a daunting journey, there are several actions you can take to increase your chances of becoming a permanent resident. One option would be to engage an agency to assist you in your application. Read on to find out how an expert can benefit your submission.

 

 

1. In-Depth Analysis

While the criteria for Singapore PR eligibility is listed on the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website, a PR agent will be able to provide you with an in-depth analysis of your eligibility to become a permanent resident.

Upon evaluation, the agent will be able to determine whether you should apply or build your profile for your future application. An in-depth analysis with a PR agent can also derive which application scheme you should apply under.

Meeting the requirements set out by ICA is one of the keys to a successful PR application.

 

2. Personalised Cover Letter

Albeit not compulsory, a personalised cover letter acts as an extra push to getting your application to stand out. There are several beneficial reasons to include a cover letter in your submission. From a cover letter, the application officer can:

  • Understand your reasons for applying
  • View your skills and qualifications
  • Grasp a better understanding of your personality and how you would fit in local society
  • Comprehend your contributions to the local society via volunteer work

While you may attempt to write a cover letter on your own, our specialists at Paul Immigrations have honed their professional writing skills over the years. They will be able to assist you in writing a high quality cover letter that showcases you in your best light, allowing your skills and your personality to shine through.

With a strict criteria and a significant number of documents required for your submission, it is no wonder that the process can be fairly tedious. An agent will help you streamline that process by:

  • Reviewing and organising the necessary documentation

Do note that if you choose to engage a private translator, the translated documents will require certification by either the High Commission/Embassy of the country of the document’s origin or a public notary based in either Singapore or country of the document’s origin.

If you are applying as a dependant, you may request for your sponsor in Singapore to apply for your permanent residency. You are eligible to apply as a dependant if you are:

  • Spouse of a Singaporean or PR
  • Aged parent of a Singaporean
  • An unmarried child, under the age of 21, of a Singaporean or PR
