  1. 1. By Miryam Hernandez<br />Not Just the Highly Skilled — Only the Best and Brightest, Please <br />
  2. 2. Countries have allowed foreign scientists, doctors, and other specialists to receive permanent residency in the exchange for talent.<br />Singapore’s growing economy has forced this country to give permanent residency to only the best and brightest specialist.<br />Permanent residency in Singapore was only 1.5 percent in 2010.<br />Professionals may qualify for permanent residency and citizenship.<br />
  3. 3. Singapore’s government over the past years has increased minimum income and residential requirements.<br />Because of this the competition amongst professionals is at its highest.<br />Other countries like Australia have made it even more difficult for foreigners to receive permanent residency. Poor English skills make it difficult for foreigners to receive permanent residency. <br />
