    4.give up citizenship here?

    i guess by committing serious crime, you will be forced to give up ur citizenship? am i correct?

    anyway it seems to be very complicated for migration.

    hope ya questions will be answered.

    Why dont you visit down to SIR Building at Lavendar and check with them...
    and also upon the Thai side, you will need to go visit the Thai Embassy at Orchard...

    I dont think its that easy for us to answer.

    1) You will need a lot of money! You have to call the thai immigration department @ 287 3101 / 2 / 3/ 4/ 5 / 6/ 7 / 8 /9 /10 for more information.

    2) You will have to either have a Thai PR frist before you can apply. If you decide to work there, you can ask your company to apply for you. If you decide to be self employed, you will have to establish a certain number of years, then you might be able to apply.

    3) See 1

    4) U must be above 21 years old, must get citizenship from the other country, and of sound mind, cause you have to do a declaration upon submit of renouncation. You have to collect the application from SIR or Singapore embassies if you are overseas. You have submit birth cert, NRIC, passport and produce the original and photocopied of your overseas passport and citizenship cert from other country. The person have to submit application personally at SIR or Singapore embassies if you are overseas. It would takes about 8 weeks time to process, if your documents are in order. If the person is a male citizen, it would take longer, as SIR would need to liasion with Mindef. Call SIR @ 63916316 / 9 for more information.

    5) Upon given a renouncation letter from SIR, bring the letter along with your Thailand passoport, if you want to credit the amount to a bank account, bring along your bank book, if your bank is an overseas bank, make sure it can accept Singapore dollars, you must provide Bank name and address in English. It would takes about 3 to 4 weeks time to process, if your documents are in order. You can go to any CPF office or Call them @
    1800-227-1188 (local) for more enquires.

    6) errr Singapore RED passport worth more than Thai's passport?

    Don't bother with the Thai side, they are pretty rude.

    its not like u wanna go any country to be a PR there u can lor, esp when u wanna be a citizen...

    normal steps is have work permit, permanent residence, citizen... u dun even have that i think very hard...

    and the simplest way in anything is to have properties or business in that country, above 1 million in USD, can get permanent residence... if you have PR there, you cancel your citizenship, i think u ho say liao... no passport liao...
