Re: "Proceed to upload documents" button is missing in ICA Website

Just want to share, my application got rejected after 7 months and 1 week. I noticed Proceed button to disappear exactly a week before. This is my 8th or 9th application, I lost count. I am on PEP and will try again in 12 months time or so.

Re: PR Application -Upload documents

If you cannot follow instructions, don't waste their time by submitting an application. There are many others who follow instruction if they want said services from the Government. It is what it is. Why you always so grumpy on this forum? Is that an age thing :-D I think this is a legit question, i...

Re: Difficulty looking for work

Chances are very low but not zero, depends on your degree, if your Master thesis work was cutting age, lets imagine - brain computer interfaces or genomics - you have a chance to get in.

Re: Waiting time to get response from ICA (Singapore PR Application)

My previous rejection came fast within 5-6 months, an application before that took 9 months plus also came as rejection. My current application is pending for almost full 7 months now. (8th month pending will start next week. ). I have applied at least 5 times and never waited longer than 11 months.

Re: Good Investment Options for EP holders

From your 6 options - bank deposit is the worst idea, rest looks good, why not do all. I am not sure if US stocks are not in the list due to legal limitations you may have because if not I would surely prefer US over SG stocks (not sure about Indian). At 10k investable a month you can start looking ...

Re: PR Approval Probability 2021

My upload documents button has disappeared today morning and I found this post when I was trying to search what could be the meaning. Also, I can enter the PR application page again now :/ (earlier it was showing you have a pending application). So after seeing some earlier posts thinking if that m...

Re: DBS Vickers

Why even put crypto and robos into a same sentence? Didn’t want to make separate posts as one claimed to not trust robos and rather pick stocks themselves. Another claimed to never touch cryptos at all. Just killing two birds with one stone in one post. I am aware they are different. People claim a...

Re: DBS Vickers

If robos and crypto were that terrible, interest and use of them would have fizzled out long ago. But nope, people are still using/buying them. Why even put crypto and robos into a same sentence? I wouldn't mash crypto and robo together at all. Robo is just a package for a stock market based invest...

Re: Do expats here eat durians?

I like durian, not all varieties but red prawn and those that are easy to peel from the seed are the best. I do like it in all the forms except for heavily processed = durian puffs or hot pancakes / pandan waffles with fresh durian - is a yes, chocolate with durian flavored filling is a no :)

Re: Studio units

Rocketboy: So true... I think have to avoid Geylang location as there's a lot of uncertainty and banks may not give out loans on houses located on certain Lorongs. I saw some in Sengkang area...rents are about $1.7-2k...sale prices about $500k...because the sq ft is so tiny, I am not sure how much ...

Re: Studio units

Quite often I contemplate about the same question as above. No-one I know invests in this kind of condos, there is zero appreciation, same units in Geylang are for sale at a same price for the past 5 - 6 years. ETF would give you x3 on annual returns. But people do buy those anyway, I wonder why

Re: PR Approved 2021

I applied multiple times, without an agency, with an agency, with reference letters, I wrote a poem to ICA once back in the day when you could attach motivation letter or something. Consistently negative outcome. But I keep trying, its like TOTO, plus there are many more things to try, get pregnant ...

Re: Condo Rental, how fixed are advertised rent?

up to 20% vs advertised price. Pick a listing you like, then go URA - "Rental contracts of private residential properties" and see last transacted for that condo. That of course doesn't mean that you wouldn't get the higher rental or lowest rental in the same condo because each case is unique. Facto...

Re: PR Approved 2021

@Rocketboy, did you apply for the PEP as soon as you qualified for the same based on salary criteria or you had to wait for sometime. ( I mean we can apply for PEP just after one month of joining a new organization on the eligible salary?) I saw you asked the same question in another post, don reme...
