Relocating to Singapore: A Guide for Foreigners

Singapore is a popular destination for expatriates who wish to live abroad but work for a company back home. It is home to thousands of foreigners from all over the world, and has the largest number of millionaires per square mile. Unlike many countries that host expats, Singapore is a land of luxury, with endless forms of entertainment and more people to have fun with than you could ever meet.

For someone moving to Singapore, there are a few things they should know. First of all, the cost of living is quite inexpensive compared to many western countries, but is high when compared to other Asian countries. A 1-bedroom apartment averages around $1600 per month. At an inexpensive restaurant, a meal for one will run about $8. Take note: all prices listed are in USD. If you need help finding a Singapore condo for sale, it helps to contact a local connection before arrival; locals can sometimes have more luck than expats and get better deals.

Singapore boasts one of the highest qualities of life of any country in the world, as well as world-class medical facilities. Unlike many expat destinations, Singapore offers western standards on nearly everything at a fraction of the cost it would be in one’s home country. There is a very low crime rate; residents enjoy the freedom to travel by foot anywhere, even in the dead of night.

Education is world-class. Because of this, many expatriates enjoy bringing their families here and raising their children in the area. There are numerous English-based schools in the area, although the official language of the country is Mandarin. Even so, almost everyone in the area speaks fluent English.

The weather in Singapore is tropical; because of its latitude, the sun shines brightly all year. Between November and December, it’s common to see days of endless rain as the monsoon passes. However, for the rest of the year, Singapore is a veritable tropical paradise.

Because of the number of expats already living in the country, relocation is a simple matter. Several services exist to make the process quick and easy. There are endless sources of entertainment, from exploring tropical rainforests to enjoying a throbbing nightlife. No matter what kind of lifestyle you live or where your interests lie, Singapore has something to offer everyone. If you are thinking of relocating here, take some time, do your research, and then enjoy yourself.
