Re: PR approval and nationality

Yes I have been maintaining my pr since 10, however I got my pr due to my parents. I believe when the Sg pr turned 21 they have to reapply for a pr on their own, is that right? Cpf is like the tax when I started working. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk This is a totally different issue from the ...

Re: RE: PR Application Approved

. My bf is singaporean though, but i don't think it's matter since we're not married yet In jest, when you applied, did you mention that you have a Singaporean BF ? :roll: Congrats !!! If ICA is issuing 20-30k PRs each year they gotta be some kind of human ... so far indo / mal chinese is the most ...

Re: Singapore Citizenship Question

Please, for the love of God, just be patient. Stop emailing them. Stop asking us. They can take as much time as they want. You all not even Singaporean yet already so kancheong. I am relatively new to this forum and I already know, reading all the past threads, that all you can do is just WAIT (I do...

Re: PR Approved

OP: How long did it take you in total, like from application date to receiving approval online, to receiving approval letter to completion of formalities? Anyone else help? As SMS said, that information would be of no help at all. You may get it approved in a month or 3 years. Does it really matter...

Re: Landed property for PRs

Good luck, personally I doubt you'll succeed in getting approval if the landed property is a typical low to mid range suburban bungalow or mid terrace; it would be another matter altogether if it was on Sentosa or an upscale clustered development. It seems SLA have tightened up on these being sold ...

Re: Landed property for PRs

Thanks for the replies. Yeah, I saw that link and the form but my dad doesn't really feel confident, especially because he applied for citizenship last year and got rejected. He currently has a sole proprietorship and does not employ anyone. Not sure how does that really affect the chances. But anyw...

Landed property for PRs

I couldn't find any topic on this so I am starting this thread. Apologies in advance if a topic like this does exist. My parents are finally deciding to buy a landed property here in Singapore. Me and my parents are all PRs and have been PRs for almost 10 years now, so from what I understand we need...

Re: Thinking of applying for PR

And being a Pakistani Muslim (albeit a non-practicing one - I wish the SG government could take that into consideration), I fear for my PR status even more considering the threat from ISIS. I can't even begin to comprehend how much would that affect my PR status, though I do feel that if I even had ...

Re: Thinking of applying for PR

Honestly, the way I see how people keep getting rejected for PRs (based on their profiles, which are much better than mine. Then again, I won't know which profile is better in the eyes of ICA anyway), I wonder if they'd even renew my REP next time. And even if they do, why would they want to? Just r...

I'd just like to ask: 3 years ago when your PR was rejected, what did the letter say? to apply after xx years or that you may continue staying on whatever pass you had at that time ? You cannot infer anything based on what you have asked. Because, there are some of my friends who received the "appl...

I think there was a guy recently (also Indian) who'd been a PR for only 2 years and got citizenship so nothing is impossible. But like what others said, pretty close to zero.

He doesn't live in Singapore but as long as his payroll is in SG (making this assumption as he is still paying CPF), REP shouldn't be a problem, should it?

Congratulations! Though honestly I am more interested in how you managed to increase your salary from 3K to 10K+ within 4 years, but that'd be another topic altogether :wink:

Just about sums it up. And the events of the last two days sure aren't going to help Pakistanis here too much either. :o Yup totally. I wish I had a way of convincing the SG govt that I am more Singaporean than Pakistani since I have lived more than half of my life here and that I'd be an outcast t...
