The Global Investment Program is an investor visa that enables high-net personalities to get the Singaporean Permanent Residence for themselves and their families under the condition of making a minimum investment of 2.5M SGD. Singapore city’s investment potential praised as the “world’s best” in the BERI’s report in 2014, country’s political stability, low crime rates, tax benefits, and government’s co-investing initiatives make the Global Investor Program one of the most in-demand visas in the investment world.
Poorly represented investment portfolio or entrepreneurship background, unpersuasive business indices and chosen sector’s illegibility are the most popular reasons for the Investment Visa rejection. You can be a very successful entrepreneur/investor in your own country, but as Singaporean authorities know nothing about you, you must build your reputation from scratch by providing comprehensive documentation about your business. Criteria set by the govt are very high, and fulfilling them is almost impossible without a professional visa backup. Visa experts know the standards of how the investor’s business must be represented and what indices the papers must reflect, so rejections are hardly probable if the GIP application is elaborately strategized by a professional.
If the rejection is already a reality, you can bring your case to us for a deep analysis and re-considering of your application. We usually do not appeal the GIP application: re-application is much more effective. The best time to submit a new application is in 9-18 months after the rejection, so there is plenty of time for re-strategizing your case. After we investigate into your business/profile insecurity, we will be able to develop a new strategy, fortify your profile and come up with a new stronger application. Even in case your illegibility is really low and you cannot participate in the GIP, we can suggest you a couple of other ways how you can perform your investment in Singapore! Please bring your situation to us for assessment. Early assessment protects you from wasting your time, making pointless efforts and guides you to the right track.
Participating in the GIP requires a lot of paperwork and accuracy. The procedure isn’t about just one application but rather about a series of applications and actions that must be made to achieve the final approval and investor’s ultimate goal – permanent residency. Please make sure that the required papers and the investment plan are prepared according to the latest standards and polished. Involve a professional backup if you feel uncertain.
The potential investor must submit a package containing such documents:
GIP processing is very time-consuming: your documents will take the ICA up to 8 months to process. Of course, the velocity of the process totally depends on the quality of the documents you provide. If time is crucial for you, you can shorten the waiting period by enlisting a professional visa backup.
After the ICA announces a positive result, the investors must implement the required investment in no longer than 6 months. Please ensure you know how exactly the funds must be transferred; your visa agents can guide you in this matter. When the infusion of 2.5M SGD is performed successfully, the investor must provide the authorities with the documents that verify this investment and based on them, get the final PR approval. The visa consultants will instruct you in how to collect your PR card.
The problem of any business or investment application is that the government knows nothing about the foreign entrepreneurs/investors, and its officers assess foreign businesses based on the documents these businessmen provide. Singaporean government seeks for reliable and talented investors who managed to build their successful businesses up and can positively impact Singaporean entrepreneurial surroundings with their expertise and money. That is why the authorities are very exacting to new entrepreneurs and the claims they set up are stringent. The govt will analyse your business during 8 months to detect any possible insecurity; that is why to bear such scrutiny, one’s business documentation must be executed professionally.
If the investors decide to contribute their money to the development of new or already operating SG-based firms, they must come up with a detailed 5-year investment plan. It is not a formal document, but your real commitment. What is more, you will get renewals of your REP based on your faithfulness to this commitment. That is why the investment plan must be compiled reasonably and inspired by innovative approach.
If you feel that you need a professional backup in promoting your business and your innovative ideas, using expert visa service is recommended.
The benefit of using local agents is in their awareness in SG business surrounding and their demands. Different countries have their unique business philosophies, but Singaporean government is interested only in those ideas that would be advantageous in the local business model. To come up with an outstanding and innovative investment plan that would win the govt’s acclaim, you should synchronize your business ideas with local demands by taking advice of the SG-based visa experts.
Another advantage of using local visa experts’ help is leveraging their paperwork grip. Working shoulder to shoulder with the authorities for years, they know every comma in the required papers and are able to bring your business documentation to conformity with the newest govt’s standards. They are also able to assess your business situation more objectively based on local demands.
Starting from the first assessment, we will back you up on every stage of the GIP application: lodging your documents and instructing you on how to conduct a correct investment and how to represent your business at the appointment with the ICA.
Having your business activity assessed as early as possible is crucial for the GIP because, in case of ineligibility, we can offer you a couple of alternative visa options that would help you to save lots of time and hit your investment targets more effectively.
At One Visa, you can get your GIP eligibility assessed absolutely for FREE. If your business qualifies, you get a full Investor Visa support from us guaranteeing a protection of your business individuality, ideas and money. Whatever your business situation is, we are able to come up with tailor-made visa options that match your business and family needs the best.
