IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Singapore will launch an online permanent residency applications process that will replace the manual process Dec. 18.
What does the change mean? The new electronic permanent residency system, known as e-PR, will allow applicants to submit the application and supporting documents electronically without needing to make an appointment with Immigration and Checkpoints Authority. The current system is no longer accepting appointments beyond Dec. 18.
Background: Applicants will be able to access the e-PR system on Dec. 18 using their SingPass/2FA verification. A new government filing fee of 100 Singapore dollars (about US$74) will be applicable plus 20 Singapore dollars for the Re-Entry Permit if the e-PR application is approved.
BAL Analysis: The e-PR system will improve the application process and eliminate the need to wait for an appointment and make a trip to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority counter to submit paper documents.
