GIP application forms are sent by the applicant to Contact Singapore. The applicant will be invited to an interview with officers at Contact Singapore if all provided documents are in order.
If the applicant meets all evaluation requirements, the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) will grant him or her an Approval in-Principle (AIP) status. Within six months of receiving the AIP letter, the applicant must make the required investments under the chosen investment option. All investment papers such as share certificates must be submitted to Contact Singapore after the investment is made.
ICA will issue the final approval letter after Contact Singapore has received the investment documents. Within a year of receiving the final approved letter, the applicant must formalize his or her PR status in Singapore.
