In a 132-page report, representatives from the Monetary Authority Singapore (MAS) has indicated that “The Singapore economy will enter into a recession this year.”  This comes as we are in the 3rd week of the mandated Circuit Breaker, where most of us are adjusting, or still adjusting to new work from home and daily routines.

As we set ourselves up to embrace prolonged economic uncertainties, we will need to grapple fast with the fact that adapting to a new normal now looks inevitable. As Immigration Consultants, during this work from home period, we remain committed to advising both existing and new clients on their inbound Singapore immigration matters. In fact, we have observed increased inquiries from business owners, individuals, and families looking to truly secure their future in Singapore.

Though we are all on ‘lock down’, we should not use this as an excuse to cease planning ahead. For those that have already been dabbling with the idea of securing their future in Singapore, use that little bit of ‘extra’ time you have at home now to be decisive on what is best for yours and family’s future.

Just as how opportunistic investors gobble up undervalued stocks in period of uncertainty, many foreigners are now seriously looking into securing their Singapore Permanent Residency and/or Citizenship.

Some of the common questions faced on a daily basis include:

  1. Will the Singapore Government still be processing Singapore PR and Citizenship applications?
  2. How does Covid-19 impact the annual application quotas?
  3. What will happen to my ongoing application submission?
  4. What if I lose my job due to Covid-19? Can I still stay in Singapore?

In fact, since the breakout of Covid-19, Immigration@SG LLP have received increased inquiries from foreigners seeking to commit long-term to Singapore. Citing reasons such as a strong economy, political stability, safety & security, and immaculate business framework, Singapore still remains the place to be for many and with or without Covid-19, there is no way these individuals are giving up their Singapore dream.
