Citizenship application rejected

Postby zhixuen » Tue, 15 Jul 2014 12:51 pm

Hi All,

I have been waited for the result for 8 months and I just checked this morning the application was rejected.

My wife and I are Malaysian and now holding Singapore PR for already 3 years.

My Monthly Income $6k Degree holder.
My wife Monthly income $2.3k
Currently, both of us live in Johor Bahru.

I submited the application together with my 3 months old children.

Could anyone answer few of my doubts as below?

1) Could I appeal? how to appeal?
2) Could anyone advice of my status now? What do you think the problem that I have been rejected.
3) To re-apply of citizenship required how long of the waiting time?

Many many thanks to your valuable input :-)

:D :D

No wonder you're rejected. What kind of citizen wannabe living in other country? It is like a Mexican applying for USA citizenship but living at the border town at Tijuana. Of course you won't get approved. And you applied too early. Ideally you should apply after second REP renewal. Is your child a PR too? Are you including your child in your application?

Yes I did include my child, he is holding Malaysia Citizenship.
Shall I apply PR for my child first? I apply Singapore Citizenship due to my child and I would like to shift to Singapore upon approval.
5% additional stamp duty is not worth to pay. :?

I think it's pretty obvious. Move to Singapore. Apply for PR for your child. Wait a few years and then apply for SC as a family.

So hang on... you want SC to avoid paying ABSD? That's not a good reason to take up SC.

I thought PRs are already exempted from ABSD, no?

ABSD is 8% applied to PR means 400K HDB PR has to pay $32K for ABSD.
I think I would apply PR for my children first.
I did a bad decision to purchase a house at JB few years ago.
:( :(

1. Apply PR for your child first.
2. Wait until you renew your REP twice then only consider applying.
3. Sell off your JB house, then you can buy resale HDB.
4. Please move to Singapore if you really want to be in Singapore.

This shows that they are not blindly giving out PRs to Malaysian Chinese.

You are right. They are giving out PRs blindly to Malaysian Chinese. Permanent residents who are not living in Singapore. Irony.

Really? Ideal timing for citizenship is 2nd renewal of REP?

Ideally. Of course some can get it earlier but only those special some ;-)
