Are they the best professionals for dealing with the complicated Singapore PR application?
As the title is written, I’m sure you know what this article is all about and I could say that “Yes, This has been my plan from 7 years ago,”. I have been living in the red dot for almost 10 years and from my 2.5 years’ experience of looking for a job, I know how difficult it is to get a job.
One can ask me “Why not look in other countries?”. The reason why it has to be in Singapore is because the country has lots of opportunity for a job, however, it also has lots of talent that come to this country to look for better living. Being a Permanent Resident will guarantee you to be able to stay and live here for 5 years, which means getting a good job without worrying if the company has enough quota to hire foreigner, buying a resale HDB or private housing and most importantly for myself is to be able to call this country, home.
It is not a secret that Singapore has been the most prosperous country in Asia, everyone around the world wanting to create an opportunity for living. These days living expenses are getting more expensive while most of the countries have been suffering from global economic, with the additional current situation of COVID-19.
One of the very few countries in Asia that has advanced medical and one that gives affordable medical treatment for people who work in the country, such as citizens, permanent residents, and holders of work visas is Singapore.
How did I find out about their company?
I was in the lookout of professional service that handles PR application since it will be time-consuming and also there are lots of preparation that I need to do by myself. I’m also worried about getting rejected and I firmly believe that as a professional service that knows how the PR application process, the chances of getting approved is higher and it will definitely reduce the complications of all the documents.
They will try their best to share with me all of my problems. To be honest, who likes the complicated stuff and who wants to deal with rejections? It will be another 6 months of wasted of effort. I am not that person. Besides, with all my busy and hectic working life and travel for conferences, it is very difficult for me to even get a little me-time for myself and even more difficult to spare some time to apply for PR.

How good are they in handling fussy customers like myself?
I do admit that I’m a fussy person and I want the best service at low prices. But, who doesn’t want that? The only thing that I’m concerned about in engaging with such professional services would be the fee and how many times do they have to get back in touch with me during the application process. However, since they’ve been handling 15000+ clients I’m definitely not the first nor the last fussy client they’ve ever encountered. They’ve been very patient to answer my questions and alleviate me of my worries.
My eligibility to be Singapore PR
The last discussion is checking my eligibility. This has been my worry, I have been living in Singapore for almost 10 years from pursuing my diploma to my 2nd bachelor’s degree until working here. Yet, I heard lots of people living in Singapore for more than 9 years and yet they still get their application rejected.
It is no surprise if we’re unable to know what’s the reason behind the rejection. However, from what I gather to get your PR approved is when the applicant has a deep and strong connection with Singapore and has shown their intention to be part of Singapore such as showing their love and loyalty to Singapore. This can be shown if one has studied or currently studying, worked, build a family, volunteering and many other factors of contribution.
Below are the steps that Paul Immigrations will conduct to measure my eligibility:
Step 1. Phone call interview
The consultant will call you to perform a short interview and they will collect all the necessary data given by ICA (Immigration Check Point of Authority). The chances to get your PR approved will also be measured by whether the applicant has family who is a Singapore citizens or Permanent Residents.
They will also check if the applicant has a pending application with the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore.
And then the consultant will do an assessment of background checking that include:
- Length of stay in Singapore
- Salary and other relevant information
Step 2: One-to-one meeting
When the applicant meets all of the criteria, the consultant will arrange for a meeting to proceed further with the application to conduct verification of their documents such as: work pass (or one of 5 visas mentioned above), payslips, passport, and other relevant documents.
After everything is fulfilled, the consultant will then proceed to explain the chances of getting their PR application approved and how they will be able to help if they have lower chances of getting approved. This is to let the applicant choose whether they want to continue proceeding with their application or not.
Step 3: Collection of document
After the applicant agrees to proceed further, they will need to submit their document to the specialist that handles the application. The submission of the document can be made by scheduled meetings with the client’s convenience or scanning the document and send by email.
Step 4: Handling of applicant’s paperwork
The specialist will do the completion of the application form based on the information that the client provided. Paul Immigrations have an in-house writer who will help in creating the cover letter based on interview questions (refer to step 2). The cover letter is filled with the commitment of the applicant to the Singapore society and community as a whole, such as participation of local events, contribution (skill set), and a good background.
Step 5: The submission
After everything is completed, they will proceed to submit the document via an online portal of ICA. The applicant can also request to do the submission together with the consultant.
Step 6: The result
It will take about 6 months to 1.5 years. From my own experience, the longer the better because it’s more than likely that ICA will reject candidates within a short time. If you receive a rejection letter, the consultant will advise which next step to take.
My impression of Paul Immigrations
The office is located around the central area, which is definitely easier to access however since my office is far from central, I don’t even have time to give all the documents to them. So, it’s pointless. But they found a way for me to give all the documents over to them and even prepare some of the documents for me. They have the best technology and communications for their client.
Their office is clean with welcoming vibes. I don’t want to engage in professional service when I look at their office and it feels like ‘premium’ class. Since I am tight in budget, I will be scared to go to that kind of office. But Paul Immigrations is classy yet welcoming.
The consultant and specialist were able to understand my concerns regarding the application. They thoroughly explained to me everything about what to expect, what will be the worst case, and what I needed to know without me asking about it. That definitely helped me a lot because I’m not so well informed regarding these issues. I thought I was, but it seems like there is misleading info out there and even some info is not available on the internet.
That’s my experience in engaging in their service. However, as the interest of being a Singapore Permanent Resident is increasing. Therefore, Paul Immigration has stated that:
