Hope this slide will help you to understand the new rates and you can refer to the existing article for more details on the mechanism of the ABSD for Foreigners.

As a whole, I would say that the changes came at a time when interest rates are going to raise soon and that prudence in the market is more important than anything else. Also as more and more foreigners flock to Singapore in post Covid world for stability and long term interests, perhaps the increase in the ABSD rates for foreigners are a necessary move by the Singapore Government.

Nevertheless Singapore remains a great place for raising your family and establishing your career so that would still be a positive thing in the bigger scheme of work.

What do you think of the changes ? 🙂
