Some people wonder if it is easier to get PR in Singapore for Indian nationals. We have heard people ask questions like-
- Is there a preference for PR in Singapore for Indian nationals?
The demand for Indian tech professionals has doubled in the past few years in Singapore. The rise in the number is due to the demand for tech talents, but no “favourable treatment” is rendered to them when it comes to PR applications. There are no exceptions made as all PR applicants are assessed based on the prevailing criteria set forth by the Singapore government at that point in time.

The number of Indian employment pass (EP) holders has doubled in Singapore over the past few years due to the rapid growth of Singapore’s digital economy; it is not just Singapore, the global demand for tech talent has gone up, and it so happens that Indian tech professionals are a good fit for this demand. Singapore faces a shortage of tech professionals as many businesses are digitalising, adding to the demand.
However, the number of PR in Singapore for Indians is based on the quota decided by the government. The falling birth rate in Singapore also must be compensated for by constantly adding to the number of Singapore PRs.
Why is Singapore the most popular destination for foreign Indian nationals looking to relocate?
Singapore is an excellent place for relocation. Many factors attract foreigners to Singapore – the quality of life, religious freedom, safety, job opportunities, political stability & more. Singapore also has certain cultural similarities to India.
India has earned a well-deserved place in the global information technology market, and many Indian nationals have made a mark in technology and other fields.
In recent years, Singapore has rapidly adopted technology, and the demand for technology developers and experts has increased exponentially due to the lack of tech talents locally. This presents a vast pool of tech jobs and excellent career opportunities for foreigners, especially the Indians.
