Renewal of Re-Entry Permit

Post by Rams-school » Thu, 23 Jan 2020 4:01 pm

I am a PR for nearly 25 Years. When we renew Re-Entry permit, I thought immediately we get reply to email, I have renewed my re-entry the status shows pending.

Any idea how long it will take to renew?

About two months back one of my friend renewed. He got the approval with in 2 minutes.Is there any policy changes?

Thanks

I think it's a bit random (maybe not random, but let's say not always the same experience). I got my first renewal in 2011 within seconds, seemed like automatic already processed when I pressed the submit button. Then 5 years later when I had 2 Singaporean kids and definitely better paid and employed by a MNC instead a small almost bankrupt company, it took 2-3 days to get the email or status change in system. I don't know why, there was no questions or clarifications asked. Will see again what happens next year.

In most of the straight forward cases, it is instant.

But in some cases which needs more vetting, it will take 1 day - 2 weeks.

Any change in your working status, residency in SG, tax payment etc?

I renewed our family REPs earlier this month, got approval within minutes. We have been PR for nearly 5 years, so first renewal.

System must be running some auto-approval algorithm...

Thanks everyone for sharing your experience and inputs. Appreciate.

Today My Re-Entry permit got renewed and another 5 years extension was given. Thanks to the SG government for giving an opportunity.
