While some white collar professionals including a former SMU economics professor were unsuccessful in their application for Singapore permanent residency, it appears that foreigners from a particular country are given PR relatively liberally regardless of their professions.
A PRC lady Liu Guiling had a Singapore PR revoked recently after she was jailed for torching her Singapore lover’s fish farm:
Besides her, there are many other PRC masseurs, beauticians, bus captains, nursery teachers, cleaners, construction workers and even prostitutes being given Singapore PR and citizenship.
It is not known what additional values these PRC ‘talents’ will bring to Singapore.
In an interview with National Geographic magazine, Singapore Supreme Leader Lee Kuan Yew proclaimed that it is a ‘good thing’ that Singapore is welcoming so many Chinese immigrants as they are ‘harder-driving’ and ‘harder-striving’ than locals.
