    Hello, I'm currently a Singapore PR studying overseas but I plan to apply for citizenship after I've finished my tertiary studies. Am I eligible for SgIS if I plan to take up citizenship but have not yet done so at the time of application? I've been living in Singapore since I was very young. Thank you!
