Business Immigration

We are immensely proud of the support we are able to provide our corporate clients as they deploy talent to Singapore.

International Business Visitors

At Magrath Sheldrick, we understand that as businesses continue to grow, there will be a need to mobilize talents regionally and it can often times be an administrative burden to comply with complex immigration requirements.

As such, we aim to facilitate swift movement of employees to Singapore by providing white-glove immigration service to our clients. Our team of seasoned immigration professionals work closely with recruiters, HRBPs and mobility partners and are dedicated to simplifying the immigration process entirely. We manage the entire lifecycle of the immigration processes in Singapore and undertake the communication process with the impacted assignees from start to finish.

More importantly, we take full ownership of our clients’ circumstances. Relocating can be a daunting process for employees, some of whom may have specific situations that require additional care and advice. We endeavour to handle such cases with compassion and tact as we work to resolve any additional complexity in the employee’s cases.

Our team has a consistent track record of being available for high-touch calls, and keep closely in contact with all stakeholders to ensure the employee experience is positive throughout the process.

Our team is able to assist with the following requirements:

  • Work visas and residence applications
  • Permanent residence and citizenship applications
  • Business travel permits
  • Curating an immigration program that complies with Singapore regulations
  • Manpower planning (to ensure dependency ratio ceiling or foreign worker quotas are not exceeded)
  • Proactively prepare for any questions raised by Ministry of Manpower regarding the company’s hiring practices
