Magrath Sheldrick Singapore provides high-touch immigration and employment solutions to businesses and private individuals from across the globe.

Singapore Immigration

With our deep understanding of the local immigration framework, combined with a vast network of contacts, we offer our clients a comprehensive and customised advice to suit their internal practices and cultures whilst always remaining focussed on compliance with a strict regulatory and enforcement regime.

With its vibrant economy, strong infrastructure and political stability, Singapore has established itself as a global business powerhouse, with companies keen to establish subsidiaries of their businesses here. It is the dynamic business hub of the Asia Pacific region.

Singapore’s immigration landscape is constantly evolving to suit the prevailing social and political climate of the nation. The criteria to obtain work passes are also regularly revised by the Ministry of Manpower (MoM) to suit the employment and market needs of the day. Singapore is welcoming to international businesses, expatriates and entrepreneurs, whilst at the same time maintaining a strong regulatory and compliance regime.

Working with Industry Associations

Through our close ties with the British Chamber of Commerce in Singapore we have coordinated and facilitated the Chamber’s flagship annual “Dialogue with the MOM” Seminar several times since opening our office in 2012. In 2018 we were invited by the British Chamber to host a seminar to provide a legislative update on Singapore immigration changes and insights into the related challenges being faced by employers and foreign employees wishing to work in Singapore. We are regularly asked to contribute thought leadership articles relating to the evolving Singapore immigration policies in their magazine publications. We have also been invited to address an Enterprise Singapore conference on immigration issues.
