Along with the birth certificate the hospital will give you a letter detailing the exact process to apply for PR and LTVP. Yes, you can go to ICA with this letter and get a queue number at the front desk, my experience is the queue number provided gets called very fast. Please make sure you do apply...

wd40: Thanks for your concern. Backup plan is already in place with experienced helper already on the job, planned delivery to optimize 89 days and long time friends as volunteers to baby sit our two year old when wife is warded. Just that a helper is a helper and having family is something else. De...

Hi All, My intention in writing wasn't to speculate how banks/casinos treat bad debts. Apologies if that is what it appeared to be. I don't have any experience dealing with a casino. The OP seems to be keen to repay & the authorities do assist but there must be repayment plan. It was based on real l...

@ Samir767 Mad Scientist's answers are already in great detail. In my experience I have prevented somebody’s bankruptcy (against two banks) and also take another one to court with OA in tow. Here is my two cents: Step 1: Stop panicking, you have erred in judgment not committed a crime. No one wi...

:sureshsajja If you visit Singapore within 3 months there seems to be some chance of rejection. Were your parents with you during your previous trip in Feb? in that case I have no idea. If you wait a few weeks & reapply you might get the visa. BTW why don't you apply from India directly instead of a...

(assuming they are Indian) My two cents. If you need the visa urgently (the visit is not holiday) , please go to ICA with the rejection, it has worked for me in the past. Things are getting very difficult but they still seem to give at least a listening ear. It may also be the number of visa's appli...

In Singapore many things are race based. Philippines is an approved nationality so no issues there. Move here first and then use work permit online portal of ministry of manpower to complete the formalities. The procedure is very straightforward and I've done it myself. Basically get approval in pri...

:Makan_explorer You need to bring him in as a visitor and apply long term visa first for your wife and baby. PR process takes quite a few months nowadays. Then apply for PR with peace of mind that at least you have kept your family together. Can you apply without your wife? technically yes but unles...

Question is why are you wasting your time here? you have qualifications and age on your side. If returning to India is not an option due to family consideratio...

:Sam00100 Glad you found the a place. Don't ask too many personal questions to the Chinese family. They don't like it. Their culture is different. Our Indian culture is to talk about all details, make quick friends and then things sour. Also a Chinese will give his friendship very very slowly - it a...
