Re: My bloody experience applying PR with a bloody agency (being rejected already)

Firstly, in my opinion, there's nothing special that these agencies can do for your application. Applying for a PR, the filling up of the application and submission of documents is not rocket science so anyone can do it themselves. Of course, being able to tick the right boxes which the ICA consider...

Re: Average salaries in Singapore

You can survive... And more perhaps. But then again what industry? What level are you joining at? With family? What kind of lifestyle are you expecting?

Re: Average salaries in Singapore

Hi everyone I’ve tried to do lots of research, but you lot will know best. Is a salary of €6k per month plus an extra €2.5k a month for housing allowance reasonable? I want to move to Singapore but I also don’t want to be worrying all the time about money like I do in the UK. Thanks! We earn in sgd...

Re: What are your biggest PR rejection fears? :(

^^^^This also. You have probably heard the term 'True Blues', Xenophobia in it's worst form. The sad part all here were immigrants at some point in time with the exception of the Malays. This is their homeland. I have heard that term. The cut off date after which people ceased to be true blues was ...

Re: What are your biggest PR rejection fears? :(

I have an ex colleague, Indian PR. He always ask Indian colleagues whether is local or from India. Which class they from? And always stress, he is from Brahimins. Even told non Indian, he is from Brahimins. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk As SF mentioned, this behavior is wrong. However, it's a...

Re: What are your biggest PR rejection fears? :(

One of the obvious ways is if you are married to a Singaporean. For long enough - thus taking marriages of convenience out of the equation. Cement that with kids.

Re: What are your biggest PR rejection fears? :(

The problem with the Indian community is the fact that they, by and large do not try to integrate with the local Indian community so it causes friction as most incoming Indians feel they are better than the locals. As an Indian from India (and since we are into the unvarnished version as you put it...

Re: What are your biggest PR rejection fears? :(

I'd love to volunteer if there's an opportunity that fit my skillset (e.g teaching programming). But until one emerges, it'll have to money for now!
Eh? Are there no organizations out there that are interested in teaching underprivileged kids computer skills (if not programming)? Just a thought...

Re: Back to Back EP Application for same FIN holder

Your current employer is renewing your long term pass. Your potential new employer is applying for an in principle approval. I believe these are 2 different things and I'm guessing that it should not be a problem.

Re: Why do you think your PR application was refused?

Hi folks! I'm curious about what fears you have, regarding your PR application. Personally, mine is not enough volunteering etc. Happy New Year btw! Hopefully this is the approval year :D That shouldn't be a fear at all. 3rd world applicants have abused this so many times (volunteering until receiv...

Re: Why do you think your PR application was refused?

I was successful on my 4th attempt. I don't quite recall all the reasons I suspected rejection but on 2 occasions - 1. Applied too soon after marriage to a Malaysian Chinese PR (later converted to SC). Well before 2 years of marriage. Don't recall if that application was through the PTS scheme or F...

Re: PR approval in 2019

Yea 4-6 months is rare even for applicants across the causeway and Chinese. Was told it is usually 1 year now Not so rare if you are or connected to the preferred race /nationality. I am from India and was approved in 5.5 months (my wife is Singaporean Chinese). This was in October. That is because...
