What is the difference between a permanent residency (PR) and citizenship?
Well, a permanent residency is essentially an individual’s legal residency status in a particular country while citizenship on the other hand means that you are a participating member of a political community. Also as a citizen, there are certain privileges and rights that you enjoy which do not apply to those individuals who are only permanent residents. For instance, foreigners and permanent residency (PR) pay a considerably higher percentage in school fees and medical fees compared to citizens.
Why should you become a full Citizen?
Again, becoming a full citizen in Singapore means that you get to enjoy so many privileges that otherwise would not be possible. Here are some of the benefits that you get to enjoy as a citizen in Singapore.
● Freedom of travel
Ranked 2nd by the Hanley Visa Restriction index, Singapore is one of the countries in the world that gives you access to different territories with or without a visa. With a Singaporean passport, you get visa-free or visa access to 189 territories to enjoy and visit.
● Employment benefits
Before relocating to Singapore, it is important to understand that here, companies prefer hiring citizens or individuals with a permanent residency (PR). This is not discriminatory in any way but only an effort to avoid the gruelling paperwork that comes with hiring anyone who is not a permanent resident or a Citizen.
Singapore is one of the countries that have the best housing plans for its citizens in the world. Anyone above 21 years in Singapore is eligible to rent or buy a house from the (HDB) which is the Housing Development Board.
What makes this great for the citizens is the numerous subsidies that you get as a citizen. As a citizen, you can apply for loans at a discounted interest rate from the board. Besides, any first-time house buyer has a chance to get up to 40,000 SGD grants.
As a Singaporean Citizen, you are entitled to an Edusave account where you will receive an annual contribution from the government which will help fund your education. In the event that you excel in your academia, then you will also receive awards from the government through the same account.
● Parenthood Subsidies and Incentives
As a citizen, once your child is born, he or she has access to the Baby Bonus Scheme from the government. You are eligible for an incentive of up to SGD 8000 for the first and second child and another additional stipend of up to SGD 10,000 for your third and fourth child. Also, the government goes further and provides another subsidy of SGD 300 to 400 all in a bid to make infant care affordable.
Similarities between PRs and SCs
Not everything is different when it comes to access when Singaporean citizens and those on PR are concerned. Individuals who are on permanent residency are eligible to rent or purchase a house through the HDB program. The only difference comes in when the government is looking to upgrade, PRs must pay for any extra feature they opt for. In Singapore, whether you are a PR or citizen, you are eligible to Central Provident Fund which a requirement by the government. Remember, second-generation male PRs are required to join the National Service once they reach 18 years of age.
