Re: PR rejection timeline

With so many applicants from india yours may well have just fallen outside the quota whereas your friend was within. It could just be the officer reviewing your application.

Which uni?

Salary?

Holding SGD currency means nothing. You can change it back to something else at any time.

Re: PR rejected. Got the "PR kiss of death"?

In my case it was new employer, won some awards, extra 4 years of residence under my belt (when I applied only had one year) and roughly a 50% increase in monthly base salary due to job change).....

Re: Police Reports

I've been involved with this from a complainant point of view. If a Police report has been filed against you, the officer working on the case will get in touch with you. You won't be able to call them and find out as sometimes they can't allow any tipping off of suspects. Cheers mate, so if someone...

Re: PR Rejection

PR is a stepping stone to citizenship. Accordingly the govt wants a cross section of people : nurses, waiters, teachers, IT etc etc. They can't all be high earning bankers. Chinese, Indians, Malaysians etc all likely to take up citizenship than those who just want to be here as glorified "expa...

Re: Contract Employment Lawyer

The statue takes precedence. If your contract was to hire you as an independent contractor then that would be a normal commercial contract and I'd agree with you.

Re: Contract Employment Lawyer

Thanks for your replies. To clarify even further. This is not an entrenchment as the company is growing.
