Singapore Permanent Resident (PR)

The Global Investor Programme (“GIP”) is administered by Contact Singapore, a division of the Singapore Economic Development Board (“EDB”) which advises entrepreneurs and business owners who are interested in relocating to and investing in Singapore.

Global Investor Programme (GIP)

You can apply for Singapore PR (permanent residence) if you are willing to invest in the country and support your funds with proven entrepreneurial skills. This particular scheme, officially known as Global Investor Programme (GIP Scheme), is often referred to as the Investor Scheme.

If you are planning to relocate to Singapore and you have sufficient funds to invest, you could consider using the GIP Scheme to acquire your PR status. Your investment into Singapore’s economy is valuable as it will generate economic spin-offs and create employment. Singapore’s business-friendly policies, relatively low taxes, modern infrastructure, safety and clean environment have always appealed to foreign investors who are looking to relocate here.

Using your investment funds, you could consider either launching a new enterprise or enriching an existing one in Singapore. You must, however, prove to the authorities that you have what it takes to make a business succeed, both in terms of your experience and how you plan to go about it. The Singapore government often acts as the link in finding suitable partnerships between foreign investors and local business networks.
