A Hardwarezone forum user with the moniker “xplayer” has shared that his China-born colleague had supposedly told him how they are (PRC) gaming the Singapore immigration system to milk the most benefits.
According to his colleague, only one of the couple needs to convert to a Singapore citizen while the other can just apply to be a Singapore Permanent Resident. This way, they get to enjoy the full benefits of the Singapore system yet allowing their children to avoid National Service.
Should the situation turns sour in Singapore, the couple can still pack up and return to China since one of them is still a PRC citizen with the new Singapore citizen allowed to remain in China with a Q-class Visa.
PRC collick couple say 1 become citizen , the other only PR , lidat can game the singapore system!

Apparently, this gaming of the system is not new and Malaysian workers have been doing this for many years.
Interesting questions is: Why are the respective agencies not doing anything about it or are they choosing to ‘close one eye’ since it would go against the ruling party’s ‘open
leg door’ policy?
How then can foreigners be blamed for gaming the system if the respective agencies are not taking any action to plug this loophole?
After all, if you are a foreign talent in a foreign land, wouldn’t you game the system and milk it?
