What is a Singapore Permanent Resident (SPR)?

Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR) are individuals who have been awarded the Permanent Residency status. Permanent residence allows foreigners to live and enter or exit Singapore as long as they have a valid Re-Entry Permit (REP). Furthermore, SPRs are not required to apply for a new work visa each time they are hired by a new employer. Singapore Permanent Residency can be applied for the applicant’s spouse, children (below 21 years old) and parents.
