A single Filipina decided to start building her life in Singapore. She took a leap of faith and applied for the Singapore PR even though her career has not taken off yet.
Abigail currently functions as a highly educated Business Advisor with one of the leading petroleum companies in the world. Having had experience both in her native Philippines and the U.K., Abigail was thrilled to be presented the opportunity to embark on her professional journey in Singapore, which is also closer to her homeland – the Philippines.
Abigail came to us after strong recommendations from her colleagues who came for consultations. Concerned initially due to her relatively short work experience in Singapore, she decided that it was no harm to attend the consultation anyway to find out more since it was free of charge. She also knew that the application process was competitive, so she wanted to make sure that she had the best possible chance of success.
PR Application Challenge: Short Career Profile, Single Status
The main challenge Abigail felt was weighing her chances down was her relatively short professional experience in Singapore, and that she is single. Noting that low birth-rates and silver population issues in Singapore would probably cause preferences in family applications, Abigail was wary on applying for Singapore PR. Further, she barely completed 1 year working in Singapore.
Within her social circle, she also shared how many of her Filipino friends got rejected several times and that rumours were rife that one stands the best chance on their first Singapore PR application attempt. With an open mind, she approached IASG for a free consultation.
Consultation & Immigration Advisory For Abigail
We had an in-depth discussion with Abigail, tabling down both her strengths and weaknesses. We also shared with her several policy insights and industry statistics that supported her cause to apply for Singapore PR without delay.
Abigail’s young age is a good factor to emphasise in her PR application. Having just joined the workforce, she can be presented as someone who is building her career in Singapore to increase her own and her family’s standard of living. As compared to what she could earn back home in the Philippines, Singapore is a goldmine. Moreover, building a career takes years and being young, she could afford to stay long-term stay in Singapore.
At the end of the session, Abigail felt more confident, especially after knowing that IASG will hand-hold her the entire process including taking care of all document requirements. Abigail was truly glad she took that leap of faith.
PR Application Approved After 6 Months
Abigail was ecstatic to learn that her Singapore PR application had been approved after an agonizing 6-month wait! Even though it took quite a short while for the result, it was still nerve-wrecking!
Knowing that her chances were quite slim, Abigail credited her application success to IASG for being able to strategise the application and present her profile in the best way possible.
“My decision to consult Immigration@SG has paid dividends for me because of their professionalism, eye for detail and commitment”.
Abigail can now build her career in Singapore, and who knows, a family next!
