Moderator, please do not censor this. I am from a country that is run by a dictator. Last month he renew his term.
Things are getting from bad to worst. My parents tell me to migrate here and never come back. I’m doing my last year in NUS, I am very afraid of not getting a job, I have a GPA of 3.50+. A country going back to 50 years ago, if I go back there is no job, I will be sent to farm or worst. If war happens in my country, I will be sent and I will die.
I am also worried for my parents, they are rich in our city (~3k sgd per month), but that not enough for them to migrate. They got no saving because covid. They do not understand English at all.
I cannot talk to my friends, we all same country. I don’t know who can trust, I get trouble if they report.
Can any one teach me how to get Singaporean citizenship for my family? My parents cannot go through what will come again, they might die. We need help.
Here are what netizens think:
- Your parents are only in danger if they have been making ill gotten gains in the wrong factions.
- SG does not owe any foreigners any reasons to stay in SG, so sob stories won’t help. Just try to get a job in the industries that SG is valuing now. Once you qualify as one of those foreigners with the valued skills set, getting a PR or even citizenship would be a breeze. Don’t get too worried as it won’t help. Take one step at a time.
- Find a job here , get your PR, serve NS if you’re a guy, or volunteer for service if you’re a girl. See if you can marry a SC, and then apply for a flat, contribute to TFR, and maintain sustainability. Then cross your fingers.
- Find a job here first then let them come on dependant pass? Yes you should be afraid of not getting a job so you better study hard if you don’t want to be sent back. In the meantime can ask parents start learning English first when they are free. Can find resources online
