IASG’s Case Analysis & Strategy


Application Needs

The applicant came to IASG seeking help with his application, mainly because he discovered that the time and effort required to do it himself will be cumbersome and time consuming given his position as a working professional. A highly driven and goal-oriented individual, the applicant wanted to make sure that the very first time he applied for Singapore Citizenship, would also be the time he got his approval. He wanted to get an immigration expert who is experienced, knowledgeable, and able to handhold him throughout the entire process. Thus, his decision to engage with IASG.

Suggested Improvements

Based on the applicant’s profile, our consultant found that his submission can be strengthened by improving his social integration efforts. Being a high income earner working in the finance industry and having no familial ties in Singapore, the applicant does not look like he has a wide network of local contacts. His interactions with locals are limited to the colleagues at his workplace. The applicant was aware of this and had plans to donate to an orphanage long-term. However, he never got the time to do it.

Our consultant was glad to help him with this and started listing out charity organisations in Singapore for the client to pick from. From there, the consultant liaised with the organisation of choice on the applicant’s behalf to arrange the monthly donations and any other efforts needed for him to actively engage the local society. He enjoyed his time thoroughly and found the engagement meaningful..

Concerns Raised By the Applicant

The applicant had concerns regarding his single status as he understood Singapore’s pro-family stance and wondered if this would affect his application. Our consultant assured him that even though the Singapore government is pro-family, it does not mean that only families are given Citizenship approvals. Because the applicant is still young, he intends to one day settle down in Singapore and start his own family here.

Application Strategy

Our consultant proceeded to strategise the application, emphasising the strength in his career and financial standing. The document specialist team took the time to understand the finance industry, the specifics of his job role, and how it contributes to Singapore’s economy. They also collated documents to signify the applicant’s financial and social contributions to the country as evidence.


Singapore Citizenship Application Result: Approved within 15 Months!


Within 15 months after submission, the applicant received the approval for Singapore Citizenship. He was understandably ecstatic and couldn’t wait to complete the next steps. IASG guided him with the formalities until he went through Citizenship Ceremony.
