Re: pr got rejected

OP dont feel disheartened. I think your son will eventually get the PR, by the time he starts primary school. There is a limited quota for approval every year. So, priority wise, I think your son's application is being pushed back. I know of cases where child's PR got approved after 4-5 attempts. An...

Re: Retard NAS blogger trying to move here. Pray ICA sees sense and doesn't let him in.

There seem to be a number of people who dont like him, and thats perfectly OK. But I dont get why people are signing petitions to ban him - I cant see that as good for anyone. The whole Watain petition showed how small minded and petty some people can be, and I see this as only reinforcing that sma...

Re: NS liability for PR under Foreign Students scheme

I think as a NS liable PR, it is better to go and complete those 2 years of NS during peace time. Imagine, you are NS liable PR and you haven't yet been called for NS because of age. Then there is a sudden outbreak of war, who are the first people they are going to come looking for? This is a extrem...

Re: NS liability for PR under Foreign Students scheme

I guess it depends on which scheme you apply under. If you apply under PTS, then no NS. If you apply as a student then you have NS.

Re: Credit Card Points

There is an offer from Citi where I can pay $288 for 28223 bonus Citi Miles (I meet all the other criteria such as minimum spend) I really dont do much with my Credit Card points or miles as I normally fly on discounted fares which is better value than the programs. My question is - Is it worth it?...

Re: [Pls Help] PR application chances assessment

Yes, the site does say you can apply for PR after 6 months here. However, your chances are extremely slim unless you are a rocket scientist or a neurosurgeon. But if your faith is strong enough, who knows. Nothing ventured nothing gained and yeah, $300 is just a month's worth of booze and that much...

Re: What is the expected EP Processing Time if encountered Public Holidays like Chinese New Year

Hi I am switching job in Singapore, and have an EP application. It was applied on 10th Jan, but due to some additional documents required, it was resubmitted on 25th Jan. It has been 6 working days. Considering 2 days leave of Chinese New Year, 10 working days will complete on 11th Feb. Beginning t...

Re: How does CPF life and cancelling PR work?

I don't think too many people are knowledgeable about stuff like this on this forum. Head over to Hardware zone money mind forum and look for BBCwatcher. He used to contribute on this forum in the past.

Re: PR Application

Hi, I am facing the same issue. Does meeting the MP helps? What can they do? Singapore is pretty much a meritocratic society. ICA isn’t gonna give a rat’s ass even if they see your application accompanied with a letter from your MP. I know this gets asked around here a lot because this works elsewh...

Re: Singapore PR chances based on scheme

I kind of feel this a wierd way to evaluate people. Just because someone is high pay and mobile, they will move. Maybe people will stay if they get a PR and want to settledown and prefer to actually settledown in a place rather than be a gypsy. So I don't quite buy that logic. Probably because you ...
