Singapore welcomes and successfully attracts aspiring and seasoned foreign entrepreneurs who can spur local growth.
Thanks to its first-class state-of-the-art infrastructures including key Asian transportation hub, business, education, healthcare, safety, and research and innovation facilities, the city-state has all qualities required to act as a primary gateway to Asia for foreigners wishing to establish themselves (whether alone or with their family) in Singapore.
Foreigners considering starting up their business in Singapore should be wary of the immigration status under which they enter. Although a simple employment pass may appear as a tempting option, it may not be the wisest option for those who intend to seek permanent residency.
The flexibility of the Singapore permanent residency framework allows professional advisers to work with applicants from the onset to ensure that they are in a position to obtain permanent residency after a couple of years. It is with this goal in mind that immigration lawyers can assist and establish a one-stop solution combining immigration services and commercial support, covering Singapore and the wider Asian market.
Harvey Law Group’s new Start-Up Visa) program (View Program) operates to grant the foreigner a renewable start-up visa for two years and then apply for permanent residency. During all this time, the applicant continues to receive the support not only of Harvey Law Group but also of a designated local business recognised by the Singapore authorities to help develop their connections and business in Singapore and neighbouring countries.
