Giving Up PR status

While we were in Singapore last December, we made the decision to renounce our PR status. Moving back to Singapore just isn’t going to happen, and while it felt like a security blanket to know we could, especially given the current US administration, it no longer made sense to hold PR status.

Renouncing PR is shockingly easy. We filled out some forms, made an appointment with the same office that gives you PR, and in less than 30 minutes we were just Americans visiting Singapore.

I honestly had expected something different. It had been so challenging to get the PR that it seemed too easy to give it up.

I don’t really have any advice, except to say that if you have PR and you choose to give it up, be certain it’s the right choice.

    What about your CPF money? Did they give that back easily as well? Cheque or bank transfer?
