Why People are looking for an agency or consultancy for their Singapore PR application

Once Upon a Time, Getting Your Singapore Permanent Residency (PR) Approval was Easy

Ten or so years ago, getting your Singapore Permanent Residency (PR) approval was relatively easy. You could go to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) building on some afternoon, take your papers along, wait for your ticket number to be called, present all copies and show all certificates. Then, after filing, you would get your results in 3 months. And rejection of PR was unheard of, especially if you had stayed for more than 2 years in Singapore.

Times have changed. Today, only 1 in 6 applicants obtains their PR approval.

Singapore Permanent Residency (PR) and Citizenship Approval: Competition is Stiff!

In 2008, Singapore approved 80,000 PRs. Today, only 30,000 PRs are approved per year. And the pool of people eligible for PR includes the 672,000 individuals who already hold Employment Passes, S Passes, and Dependent Passes. So competition is stiff.

Moreover, you may be part of a particular industry, age group, or even ethnicity that faces even stiffer competition.

It is just as difficult to attain Citizenship status. Out of the 500,000 PRs eligible to apply, only 20,000 are granted Citizenship per year.

What is the impact of this and its relevance to using a Consultancy Firm to advise on your PR application?

The above situation simply means that most people’s applications (Whether for PR or Citizenship) are rejected every year. This has resulted in frustration for many. Many people have stayed in Singapore for sufficiently long. However, without PR they don’t have a reasonable confidence that they can settle in Singapore. Any problem with the job and they may have to go back.

What to Look for in a Singapore PR Consultancy / Agency to assist on your application

Suppose you’ve decided to use a professional agency to advise you on your PR application. What qualities should that agency possess?

Immigration Knowledge

The firm you engage should be experts in the field of immigration. This expertise should be evident in your initial conversations with employees, be they salespeople or the actual consultants.

Anyone can put up a website and call themselves an immigration service. We know of one such company that offered PR application services for a few months, but when that didn’t work became a barbershop instead. While we have nothing against the barber business, those applying for PR status deserve professional and committed advocates.

Study the Website

Carefully study the website of any company purporting to offer PR application assistance. Does the website contain relevant information and guides. Is there a video channel? Is there an attempt by the company to share genuine immigration knowledge with you? Does the company have a proper place of business? Is the company phone number a proper landline number or just a mobile number? Such details can help you determine the professionalism of the agency you are considering.

Pricing

Pricing, of course, is a major part of your decision. Try to find an agency that offers a balance between value and services. It’s probably not wise to go with the lowest pricing, which may indicate a company with no real knowledge or expertise. On the other hand, don’t assume the most expensive company is the most effective; they might be a rip-off.

Select your immigration consultant wisely! Avoid fly-by-night consultants who have little to no background in the immigration field. Epica Immigration Services offers professional and EXPERIENCED guidance to improve your chances of PR approval.
