GLOBAL INVESTOR PROGRAM

The Global Investor Programme (GIP) grants Singapore Permanent Resident status (PR) to eligible global investors who wish to start and nurture their businesses or invest from Singapore. It also opens door for inventors to be Singapore Citizens after holding PR for 2 years.

If you wish to migrate to Singapore through GIP scheme, you need to have at least 2.5 million SGD of funds. Singapore is an attractive country for investments due to its pro-business policies, top-notch infrastructure, low taxes, safe and secure environment.
