The reassurance of the country’s Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew states, “We (Singapore) need to continue bringing in more foreign workers and talent so that it can take on the worldwide competition for growth and progress.” WorkSingapore, a central recruitment system, managed by JobsCentral and JobsFactory, added that Singapore companies are eager to hire foreign talents with Singapore Work Permit, provided they possess the necessary and relevant skill sets to handle the job requirements. The foreign workers and immigrants have created considerable opportunities and benefits for the Singaporean employment.
Prime Minister Mr Lee Hsien Loong had articulated, during one of his speeches, on the beneficial outcome with respect to the influx of foreign workers and talents that, “Without foreign workers, we would not have attracted US$3 billion investment, with Intel and Micron. By allowing in a controlled number of foreign workers, far from disadvantaging Singaporean workers, we have created more good jobs for Singaporeans, that is, for every one foreign worker, we have created 1.5 local jobs.”
Rikvin acknowledges the trend, during the period of 2010 to 2011 that most foreign talents working in Singapore with a minimum period of 6 months will apply for Singapore Permanent Resident status. The 4 Singapore PR Schemes leading to permanent residency are Professional, Technical Personnel and Skilled Worker Scheme (PTS Scheme), Global Investor Program Scheme (GIP Scheme), Financial Investor Scheme (FIS Scheme) and Foreign Artistic Talent Scheme (FA Scheme)
The Professional, Technical Personnel and Skilled Worker Scheme (PTS Scheme) is responsible for 95% of Singapore Permanenet Residents. Being the most popular scheme, it provides any foreign individual with P, Q or S work pass the opportunity to become a Singapore PR.
The Global Investor Program Scheme (GIP Scheme) and Financial Investor Scheme (FIS Scheme) are suitable for foreigners planning to start a business or invest in the country. The GIP Scheme requires the applicant to invest at least $2.5 million in new or existing business developments or invest at least $2.5 million in approved fund while the FIS Scheme requires investors to place at least $10 million with a regulated financial institution of Singapore, held in Singapore for a minimum of 5 years.
Acquiring an artistic educational background and qualification, the Foreign Artistic Talent Scheme (FA Scheme) will deem most appropriate. Launched by the National Arts Council and Immigration Checkpoints Authority of Singapore, this scheme attracts artists globally, in view of their extraordinary talent.
