Singapore Emigration

The rules to emigration in Singapore are rather intricate. Most will not need a visa in advance, but you are required to have return ticket, supporting documents, and sufficient money to cover expenses.

Nationals from the UK do not need a visa to enter Singapore if it is a business or social visit. However, if planning to stay there in employment then applicants must first secure a job offer then apply for an Employment Pass (EPEC) or Residence Permit.

Permanent residence is a rather meritocratic affair. The government requires you demonstrate that you are qualified or educated, therefore beneficial to the overall well-being and perpetuation of the economy. Annoyingly, the criteria can fluctuate and change in accordance with the needs of the economy.

The residency permit process requires the following documentation:

  • Two application forms
  • Passport
  • Original Birth Certificate
  • Two photographs

And, if applicable:

  • Spouse's passport
  • Marriage Certificate
