Re: Choosing a race

Malcontent, what is your source of information for the rules for choosing race? I would like to know since I will soon need to take a decision.

Re: Will Foreign Domestic Workers have to take the Vaccine?

Looking at how airlines are considering making it a pre requisite for boarding aircrafts, I would say yes.

Re: EP is the new PR

What race should one choose between: 1. Eurasian 2. Chinese-Caucasian 3. Caucasian-Chinese What are the Pros/cons? HDB ethnic integration policy? ECF/CDAC/??? contribution rates? Anything else? Will be interesting to discuss this. Probably deserves a separate thread. I plan (or hope to) have my dau...

Re: EP is the new PR

WD40, your post above is exactly why Indians are having such a hard time gaining PR here. Assimilation is part of the game. This operating in a virtual commune and not integrating with the local population is a keystone of the immigration policy. Don't you think that ICA's field officers check out ...

Re: EP is the new PR

I'm not sure, but I think i read something where the first listed race in a hyphenated surname is considered the dominant one. Or that the Father's Race would be listed first with the mother's following. Can't remember were I read it so please don't take it as the gospel. I recall reading that ther...

Re: ePR Form Assitance

Hi all, I have the same question as Rahul. For now I only fill in the history of my immigration records with the chop of SG's immigration ICA officer in passport (for ex: whenever you enter SG with new IPA or leave SG when your SP/ WP cancelled..). Or do we need to mention all the time including tr...

Re: Citizenship Application Rejection Letter

I have asked this question before but I will ask again - how does the ICA quantify/prove integration of an applicant? I for one have done my whole sec sch, jc, uni locally (funnily enough, i am a dragon baby and no schools had any spots to even consider taking me in. luckily, one neighborhood schoo...

Re: Citizenship Application Rejection Letter

They are looking at a bunch of criteria, not just one or two, but no one knows exactly what they are. If you tick the right boxes, you are in - way before any spouse is even allowed to apply. I am a PR, recently approved on the first application which was processed in 6+ months (applied after 5 yea...

Re: Citizenship Application Rejection Letter

Smoulder, nope, it's a long road to citizenship for the spouse of a Singaporean - STVP, LTVP, LTVP+, PR...and finally SC (if successful). They want to make sure it's not a marriage of convenience and they monitor that for years. I know of someone who was rejected 4 times (the last time even after t...

Re: Citizenship Application Rejection Letter

Ultratech, then I agree it's a bit of a mystery. All the best. I hope it works out in the end. To answer your question, markers of integration that I think are important: 1) kids in local school 2) HDB over condo 3) learning one of the three official languages 4) community club membership and parti...

Re: PR approval probability 2020

Thanks for your advice. Could you tell me more about the other race groups earning way more than me? I know Singapore average salary is high but I didn't expect a specific race group to have earn more than me in average. I think you misunderstood what he said. He's basically referring to the 4 raci...

Spot on malcontent. I did for a quarter of a century, but if my own country turns into Democratic Dogshit, I'm going to take another look at possible SGC.
Put the SGC application down SMS... I’m calling it for Trump
No SGC application now?

Re: PR approval probability 2020

Thanks :) Is the formalities going to take a few hours? Just my pregnancy and would like to get an HDB. During the appeal, the only different/new thing we were asked to submit is a certification letter from my OB to confirm my expected due date. The rest of the documents are normal like payslips, c...
