Re: PR approval in 2019

If he applied 2 years after joining a company here, unless he joined that company on 1 January, he would have had 3 tax assessments, add the fact that he is a Malaysian Indian, not a one from the motherland, means he also is easily assimilated into Singapore culture as well and he would naturally t...

Re: Kid born overseas for SG Parents

I don't think you have another option but sg citizenship from what you describe. Which is just as well since it's what you want, not to mention, the oci card probably gives you whatever you need for visiting India. Technically the kid can get both SG and IN citizenship and hold on to both till 21 y...

Re: Kid born overseas for SG Parents

It is very fast if done within the timeline. When I brought my son back from Australia he was registered within a couple days of our visit to ICA. Just FYI, likely i wont be applying for Indian Citizenship/passport and will apply directly online for SG Citizenship for the kid within a maximum of 1-...

Re: Citizenship chances?

🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 You have not answered my questions Can a SC Kid with OCI study in an Indian International School in SG? The question as far as I know is "can an SC kid study in a non public school". I believe the answer is yes but only after getting special approval from mom. Correct me if I am wrong.

Re: Citizenship Ceremonies

From what I recall of my wife's case, it's more to do with scheduling than anything else. I wouldn't read anything into it.

Re: PR Approval 2020

Wanabe, We've (I've) mentioned the fast tracking that is often available to Malaysian Chinese trying to come to Singapore and gain PR. We don't normally use that information in our general answers because you cannot find it on the MOM or ICA websites. It's the same as Malaysians gaining EPs with on...

Re: Anyone applied for citizenship but is still pending? How long have you been waiting?

You didn't go through sponsor route?
I don't recall if it was the sponsor route for the original application or professional talent (whatever that other scheme is called).

Re: Chance to obtain a PR as a single French 33 years old, 4 years under EP.

In current conflict with my company, so can not get their support for a recommandation letter.
You will need your employer to sign off on annex A which is part of the application process. Without this, there's no application if I'm not wrong.

Re: REP renewal for retired PR

I can tell you what the potential problem it. As a PR, I've known for some time that over the age of 55 you do not have to be employed to get an REP but that is generally based on Family Ties PR. I'm now 72 but I just retired 10 months ago. As long as I have family ties here I'm okay. However. And ...
