You have to fit among one of these categories to be able to apply for a PR in Singapore:
- Spouse of a Singapore citizen or a Permanent Resident.
- Unmarried child below 21 years legally adopted by a Singapore citizen or a Permanent Resident.
- Parent of a Singapore Citizen
- Employment Pass or S Pass Holder
- Student Studying in Singapore
- Foreign Investor in Singapore
In summary, the PR can be applied by anyone that has been residing in Singapore for around a year. However, the acceptance is objective rather than subjective- meaning that the PR issuance is on a case by case basis.
The bottom line is that you should make the authorities believe that making you a Permanent Resident will help uplift Singapore in your sector. ‘Significance’ and ‘Achievements’ are the keywords.
You should also be able to craft a great application, mentioning almost everything authorities need to know. Thus, taking help from experienced professionals is going to increase your chances of getting Singapore PR by a huge margin.
