Executive Summary:

Tharmalingam Murugan worked his way up from a blue-collared laborer position in 2003 when he first came to Singapore. After attaining PR for himself and wife in 2007, he worked hard and is now a Director of a humble food trading shop. He has since find it difficult to secure PR for his 2 Singapore-born daughters.


Since 2010, his application for both his daughter’s PR got rejected time after time. He is at his wits’ end as he has no intention of going back to his home country, having raised his children in Singapore entirely. Unsure if he is approaching his PR applications for his children in the right manner, he decided to seek professional help.

How IASG helped : As with how IASG approach all cases, we invited Murugan down for a free consultation to understand his profile in depth. During the session, we assured him of several unique and key strengths that we could use to make it relevant for a strong PR application. We did a point by point analysis to benchmark Murugan’s merits and advise what the immediate items we can help with. We also assured him that we will take over all the paperwork and documenting so that he can focus on his business operations. With this hand-holding approach, Murugan felt less pressured and was able to approach his application in an easy, structured, and stress-free manner.
