Is there any kind of benefit to using a Singapore PR application or immigration agency such as Dream or IASG or TIP? Is there a real value add by them to your PR application process or are they overhyped? Let us find out in this article.
If you already had your PR application rejected numerous time, consulting with an immigration agency is your best option. There is a good chance that if you are constantly getting rejected, and yet you have provided all the documentary proof that ICA requires from you, then it is just likely that your profile is not as well qualified as the other Singapore permanent resident applicants. If you keep appealing or applying without trying to drastically improve your profile in the meantime, you will not see any changes in results. Either work on improving your profile drastically, or seek advice from a professional immigration agent and proceed after that.
If you have a good income, great academic records, held grassroot leadership positions and more, then your chances of approval is really high. In such a case, your choice whether you should use external help depends on one main factor only – how much free time do you have? If you have lots of free time, then you should really just apply for permanent residence by yourself, as it should be relatively easy for you to get approved. However, if you are like most high flyers, you are probably busy. In this case, you can use an immigration agency to save you time. In such a situation, using them is not so much about improving your application, but about helping you save time.
Most people who benefit the most from using such external help are actually people who belong to one of the above groups – extremely busy people, and applicants who have been constantly rejected by the ICA already. If you belong to one of the above groups, you stand the most to benefit. For the rest, the choice is up to you.
