The 5 Biggest Reasons People are Moving to Singapore

Singapore is a booming nation in the early weeks of 2017. In a confused era of international trade and politics, where companies are reaching for greater international profits than ever while popular votes seem to be pulling away from globalisation, Singapore is still well positioned to sustain its growth over the next decade. While foreign immigration has slowed slightly from its peak a decade ago, an enthusiastic government and favourable conditions have seen the figure remain high, and since 2012, begin to climb again.

Here, in plain speak, are the 5 most convincing reasons to move yourself or your family to Singapore:

Career Opportunities

Throughout the history of Singapore, its high demand for and willingness to hire skilled foreign nationals has remained the highest draw for immigration. The island nation maintains a thriving and modern economy, providing many international interests with a comfortable location for their Asian regional bases. Whether your company asks you to move there, or you see an opportunity and make the leap of your own accord, it’s most likely you move to Singapore for a better job.

Standard of Living

For many looking to make a move internationally, Singapore’s high quality of life is the factor which causes them to narrow their focus and settle on that nation as home. For those in neighbouring Asian countries with a less developed economies, Singapore represents a big step up in lifestyle; for western professionals, it is an opportunity to move to Asia without sacrificing any of the comforts they are accustomed to.


For foreigners with children or who even are in a position to seek tertiary education themselves this is a huge plus for Singapore as a prospective new home. The education system in the country is not only world-class and highly competitive, but specifically designed to provide a western style education so that graduates can slot fluently into those nations’ systems should they travel to study.


Perfectly situated as the “hub of Asia” and lying in a belt of comfortable, tropical climate near the line of the equator, there’s no question that the geographical position of Singapore and the various qualities derived from it are a major attraction to foreigners. Cheap, safe air travel connecting the island to expanding Asian nations, and a gentle, almost year-round 20 to 30 degree Celsius average temperature are hard to beat.

Expatriate Culture

Singapore is internationally reputed as a multicultural and cosmopolitan nation, and that reputation is well deserved. Foremost in the mind of those moving from a foreign nation is the idea that many others have made that trip before and thrived; if they follow they will neither be alone nor ignored. Singapore has become “the welcoming nation”, and that is what immigrants seek above all else.
