Singapore's government has made immigration policies more stringent since 2009. Prior to 2009, PR applications were approved in higher numbers. At that point of time, the population of foreigners eligible to file PR application was also limited.
In light of the long-term plans now, the number of PR application being approved per year is reduced to 30,000. At the same time the number of people eligible to file PR application has gone up by as much as 50%. As a result the approvals are becoming difficult now.. However, you should not worry about strict criteria if you have shown outstanding commitment, efforts, and social contributions to the city-state.
