Re: Chances of getting Singapore Citizenship

So you need to finish SGJOURNEY in 2 months from IPA. Formal approval letter - 7 days after SGJOURNEY + Tentative ICA appointment to Oath taking in a month. Before going to ICA, you need to give up your current citizenship/passport. So chances are slim that you can travel with your prev/current pass...

Re: Citizenship Rejected (Appeal or Re-Apply) - Advice

Congrats. Came across similar experiences (i.e. Succesful appeals)recently and guess only ICA knows why they changed their mind.

Re: Citizenship Rejected (Appeal or Re-Apply) - Advice

None :). Personally, I think it's useless but saw a couple of successful cases without any improvement or changes in their situation. It's a calculated risk of waiting few months with appeal vs few years with a new application. End of the day it's up to OP and all I can say is good luck.

Re: Citizenship Rejected (Appeal or Re-Apply) - Advice

Appeal - Existing wisdom says (and I tend to agree) it doesn't work. But no harm trying as the new application process is expected to take a few years more.
Recommendation letters / Grass Roots - Honestly, these won't work and it's just a matter of coincidence if anyone says it did IMHO.

Re: Citizenship Application successful and AIP received

Nope. Didn't updated. When my spouse changed the job right after doc submission, we did update ICA and received a reply that's implying ' we know from your cpf submissions and ask for addl details if needed'. So didn't really bothered to reach out to ICA for any changes.

Re: Citizenship Application successful and AIP received

2 years.. I guess that's fine as it takes pretty long in any other country and probably a way to test the plans and stability.
Salary - I don't think salary has much relevance as some of the known folks got it with less than the median income and few got rejected with 10x median income.

Re: is SC application online status updated

"good enough" to know the status. You still need the letter to get the approval date to go into sgjourney to finish the formalities. Not sure if ienquiry and myica are the same 100% but I guess there are some diff in terms of back end data. In my case (going through sg journey) ienquiry still shows ...

Re: is SC application online status updated

Check through MyICA. It will show approved or rejected online and typically tend to be slightly before one gets the physical mail.
ienquiry shows approved only after the SG Journey completed.
