More and more expats in Singapore are feeling the tightening immigration policy.
The following is an article posted in http://www.todayonline.com/Singapore/EDC120423-0000001/The-uneasy-expats
from Mr. Richard Hartung, a consultant who has lived in Singapore since 1992.
A contact for a story said: "We need to talk this week." The reason, as it turned out, was that he had to leave town because his employment pass had not been renewed. And he is not the only one. Other employment pass holders have also been forced to leave and even some permanent residents' (PR) re-entry permits have not been renewed.
While there is plenty of discussion in Singapore about having too many foreigners here, the buzz in the expat community is about how uncertain it is whether they can continue to live here.
