If you need quick cash but want a low-interest rate loan, this is the perfect type of loan for expatriates like you.
Applying for a foreigner loan in the past has been difficult due to lack of credit score. Since a foreigner is new to Singapore, building a credit score won’t be easy. However, recent amendments in the Ministry of Law have made it possible for any foreigner to borrow quick cash from licensed moneylenders is now swift and efficient. Foreigner loans application at Credit 21 is now a breeze, we don’t scrutinize the credit score of foreigners because we understand how hard it is to get a loan during emergencies.
First thing to check when applying for foreigner loans is to know if the moneylender is a licensed moneylender and not an “Ah long” or Illegal. These illegal money lenders also offer different Personal Loans and Foreigner Loans but they may trick you and trap you to the debt cycle.
To avoid loan scams, the first thing that you must check is to verify if the moneylender that you are looking for is a licensed moneylender registered with Singapore’s Ministry of Law.
Next, compare the best loans according to your budget and repayment capability. Don’t forget to check the customer satisfaction reviews on Loan Advisor and Google Reviews to check the customer satisfaction reviews.
With a minimum monthly salary of $2,000, Credit 21 allows foreigners to borrow a loan amount up to 6 times their monthly income.
To further explain, you can loan any amount with secured loans. For unsecured loans, please refer to the table below:
Borrowers’ Annual Income

All licensed moneylenders are only permitted to impose the following interest rates, charges and expenses:
- A fee not exceeding $60 for each month of late repayment;
- A fee not exceeding 10% of the principal of the loan when a loan is granted; and
- Legal costs ordered by the court for a successful claim by the moneylender for the recovery of the loan.
The total interest rate and charges imposed by a moneylender on any foreigner loan or any loan in Singapore, consisting of interest, late interest, upfront administrative, and late fee also cannot exceed an amount equivalent to the principal of the loan.
Meanwhile, the maximum interest rate that a moneylender can charge on a foreigner loan in Singapore is 4% per month, regardless of the borrower’s income and whether the loan is an unsecured or secured one.
If a borrower fails to repay the loan on time, the maximum rate of late interest that a moneylender can charge is 4% per month for each month the loan is repaid late.
The computation of interest rate charged on the loans for foreigners must be based on the amount of principal remaining after deducting from the original principal the total payments made by or on behalf of the borrower which are appropriated to the principal.
The late interest rate can only be charged on an amount that is repaid late. The moneylender cannot charge on amounts that are outstanding but not yet due to be repaid.
The application process for a loan in Singapore is swift and efficient. We will be reviewing your documents like annual income and monthly income, unlike banks which require tedious documents and processes. You can expect to receive your borrowed money within an hour only, or upon the signing of the contract when you’re contacted to come in for the signing of the contract and other related documents.
Yes. Banks can allow you to borrow a bigger loan amount for much longer tenure with a different interest rate. The downside is that the process of releasing the money takes more time.
Credit 21 can give you the loan amount, usually, in just only an hour with a much easier loans application process, low-interest rate, and no hidden charges. The loan amount will also depend on your monthly and annual income. Our loan officers will help you each step of the way when applying for any foreigner loans.
The differences between a personal loan, foreign loan, and a payday loan are the loan amount you can borrow, requirements and eligibility, and the repayment period.
A personal loan allows you to borrow up to six months’ worth of your salary and let you repay monthly until the personal loan amount is paid off.
A foreigner loan is also a personal loan but especially dedicated to foreigners. The eligibility and requirements are different from Singapore nationals.
On the other hand, a payday loan allows you to borrow up to only one month’s worth of your salary that must be paid back in less than a month.
