How to live in Singapore?

Little talked about among the desired places to live, Singapore is a place little known by Brazilians when asked about countries to live. Singapore has many advantages that, after knowing it, you will surely see this country with different eyes.

Today we are going to talk about this country that seems to be little talked about and little researched when we talk about housing, but it is one of the best places to live, check it out below.

What is necessary

One of the advantages of living in Singapore is not needing a visa for Brazilians who go on tourism for a maximum period of 30 days, but even so it is necessary to perform some tasks, they are:

  • The passport must have a minimum validity of 6 months.
  • Proof of income is required to support yourself during your stay.
  • Have a round-trip ticket.
  • Disembarkation and boarding pass completed.
  • Have vaccines up to date.
  • When a month has passed, an extension of the visit or a study or residence permit will have to be requested.

And how is work in Singapore?

Working without Singapore when you are over 21 years old, you need to apply for a permanent residency visa. Workers who have this permit are divided into three different classes, they are divided by the value of their wages.

  • 2500.00 reais or less;
  • Less than 2000.00 reais;
  • Less than 3000.00 reais;
  • Those who earn less than these salaries receive the Work Premit;
  • The S Pass is given according to graduation levels and the Employment Pass is intended for highly qualified professionals.

Necessary documents

The following documents are required:

  • Valid passport;
  • Identity card;
  • Employment Pass or S Pass;
  • University certificates and diplomas;
  • Marriage certificate (if you have a spouse);
  • Birth certificate;
  • References from former employers with duration of last job and last salary;


For those who travel only to hold lectures or events, they have a specific pass with a duration of 60 days, which is the Miscsellaneous Work Pass. One of the items that most attract Brazilians is the education system. Singapore has one of the best education systems in the world.

Foreign students must apply for the Student Pass if the course is to exceed 30 days, which is the period allowed for visitors. However, something that unfortunately makes life difficult for foreigners is the cost of living, as it is very high.

According to research, it is 112.72% more expensive than the Brazilian cost. However, due to the ease of welcoming immigrants and also for being a very organized country, it is worth living in Singapore.
