REP Renewal from abroad

Does anyone on this forum have personal experience of applying while abroad and having REP approved?

Also does going physically to the consulate help? alternatively, does applying while in Singapore help with chances (not employed in Singapore but overseas)

What kind of a job do you have lin...

yes it does

The only change I did, when I was applying for PR, is that I stopped remitting my S Dollars to India for the last couple of years, thinking that having a good bank balance will help. Does this make a difference to the PR app ? True Story - citizen application very recently - Indian single male. Off...
