Global Investor Programme
The Global Investor Programme (GIP) is an initiative by Economic Development Board (EDB) of Singapore. This is a popular programme which has attracted many investors to Singapore since its launch.
This Programme is to assist foreign investors and entrepreneurs to set up and develop their business in Singapore. It provides links to local business networks and more opportunities for business collaborations. It also provides a range of immigration facilitations.
Under the GIP scheme, you can choose either one of the following investment options:
(a) You must possess at least 3 years of entrepreneurial and business track record and must produce audited financial statements of your company for the last 3 years.
(b) Your company must only be engaged in one or more of the industries listed in Annex A in the GIP factsheet.
(c) Your company’s turnover must be at least S$50 million in the year immediately preceding your application, and at least S$50 million per annum on average for the three years immediately preceding your application. You should submit the financial statements of your company with the highest turnover. You may also consolidate your businesses, all of which must only be engaged in one or more of the industries listed in Annex A in the GIP factsheet, to meet the minimum turnover criteria.
(d) If your company is privately-held, you should have at least 30% shareholding in the company. Your role in the company, as well as the growth and profitability of your company would be taken into consideration.
