Is it compulsory to submit Annex A with PR application ?

My boss is out of singapore and will return after one month. I have a PR appointment next week.

Anyone suggest me whether It is compulsory to submit Annex A employer details together with PR form 4A application. ???

Thanks in advance...

No, it's not compulsory, but your application will be looked upon more favourably if it is accompanied by the Annex. Simple reason, it looks like you plan on job hopping as soon as you get your PR. Not the way you want to portray yourself to ICA. Of course, occasionally you get the bad employer who has been burned before like that, so refuses to sign the Annex A. So, you buys your ticket and takes your chances.

They told you: we will give you Annex A as long as you sign a 3-year contract? You know, its not like they're sponsoring you or something (aside from CPF contributions, but those are obligatory for them).

Actually, if your current contract does not state that in case you get PR, you must sign up for 3 years, all this is a kind of bllsht.

Not compulsory but the officer will ask you why. Best to have an official letter stating why. If you do not have any form of recognition from the employer (whether through Annex A or other forms of documentation like official letters), your application will not be favoured well. Not sure quantitatively how, but by the anecdotes from this forum and in general, that's how it goes.

Hi Serggie...

Yes, They told me. My existing contract does not mention regarding any contract for 3 years.

Hi Mr. Lynx,

I got pay slips, employment offer letters etc etc.
Better I will prepare a explanation letter to ICA regarding with the reason for not submitting annex A form.

Or even better than that: find a new better job (since obviously you don't like your current company), wait for 6 months to get 6 payslips, and only then apply. Otherwise you're risking to screw up your PR chances once and for all.

Same problem. They will still ask for employer endorsement, with or without Annex A.

Some employers (like mine) give endorsements without imposing or asking for anything.

Well, as long as you have a termination clause in the contract...

OP, sadly, the biggest factor that is going to determine the outcome of your application is the clue that I get from your nick. Just dont bother to apply, its going to be total waste of time.
