Ever since Singapore achieved independence as a sovereign nation on the 9th day of August, 1965, the states of Singapore citizenship has become a matter of great importance to many of the residents of the tiny island. The government of Singapore faced with the struggle for survival and the accelerated withdrawal of British armed forces based in Singapore has adopted a stringent policy of not conferring citizenship on any person unless he can contribute to the economic well-being of Singapore and will not be a burden on the country's heavily taxed social services.
Singapore citizenship to a resident of this tiny island means a right to hold a job, cheaper education for his children, the right to enjoy the social services provided by the Government and the right to benefit from the cheap housing programme launched by the Government.
