Are you considering migrating to other parts of the world to start a new chapter in your life?
Are you moving to search for a job? Or do you long for experiencing another culture?
If you were looking for a decent job and a place where you could live comfortably, I would recommend you to Singapore.
In a recent survey, Singapore was picked out as the best city in the world for Asian expatriates to live in. Beating Japan, Shanghai and even Hong Kong.
There are many reasons to choose to work and live in Singapore, but basically there are 7. They are:
Strong layer reinforcements
You'll never see protests, strikes and riots in Singapore's streets. This is the result of the police's strict law enforcement. Anyone involved in any of the above events will be imprisoned and fined.
Currently, the death penalty is still in Singapore. Any drug trafficking, or commit murder or kidnapping should be sentenced to death.
Another advantage of living in Singapore is that it is quite safe to walk alone on the streets. Even if crimes arise, interest rates are relatively lower than in other countries.
Locals are joking that anyone who committed a crime has nowhere to run but jump into the ocean (it is because Singapore is surrounded by the sea). Another joke is that before the robber can fly, the police have arrived (Singapore is so small).
What makes Singapore so attractive to live in is its peaceful environment. There are no natural disasters such as earthquakes, typhoones, tornados and winter colds. All you need is either rain or shine. But the air conditioning is extremely powerful. You can say that it is winter indoors.
Using Singapore's geographical location, many large and small organizations are based here to access other parts of Asia and the Middle East.
It is used as a gateway.
Even companies from China establish offices here to gain access to markets in the US and Europe. They do it in part to gain from the Free Trade Agreements signed between these countries and Singapore.
Even foreign workers use this small country as a walkway to gain work experience and improve their English so that they can move on to other developed countries such as the United States, Europe and Australia.
Since almost everyone comes here, it has become the site of networks for both companies and jobseekers.
Lenient Immigration Rules
Do you know that Singapore is one of the countries with the least stringent immigration rules?
Anyone can come to Singapore as long as he / she receives the necessary passports or documents.
You can travel from one end of Singapore to the other end within an hour!
The transportation system covers the whole country and you do not have to own a car to travel.
Public transport includes the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Railways, buses and cabins / taxis.
Even if you own a car, the roads are well connected.
The education is aimed at all students.
There are many schools, colleges and universities for those who do well academically.
For those who are good at sports, there is even a sports school to nurture and train them.
In addition to these schools, there are also several technicians and institutions to equip students with special skills.
The private schools and institutions in Singapore are also of high quality. That is why many foreign students register and study here. When these foreign students have expired, many chose to continue to stay and work here.
Singapore is unique in terms of its political environment. There are very few opposition parties. The dominant political group is the People's Action Party (PAP) that governs Singapore since independence day.
As such, there are no coupons, opposites or even clashes.
This is important for companies that invest here and for foreigners living here. They can assure safety and security. You do not have to worry about loss of investment and jobs due to unstable political environment.
Another reason why the political environment here attracts foreigners is its policy. Singapore Government welcomes talents.
You would be surprised to know that in 2005 about 44% of the available jobs were foreigners! (These 44% do not include permanent residents).
Singapore is actually so hungry for talented and skilled people. As long as you have skills, knowledge, experience or talent, you are definitely welcome here.
Obviously, there are many other reasons why thousands of foreigners flow to Singapore to search for jobs or to live here. But the above are the main reasons behind such a move.
If you are tempted to migrate to Singapore for these 7 reasons, make sure you are not alone.
Who knows, you can even settle and get a citizenship.
