You're at it again. Common sense will tell you that if it's common sets of documents one should suffice. Unless you're saying the husband and wife have different sets of marriage certs with different spouse's names? Kid's marriage cert? All 3 of you in the family use the same passport to travel? If no, submit respective passports (same goes for birth certs).

You're kidding to chase away the Monday blues right?

If you are applying with your family, the officer will compile each applicant's info individually and will ask for a copy of a common document such as a marriage cert for each applicant (father, mother, child). So prepare 3 copies of a marriage cert for 3 applicants. I just submitted my documents a few weeks ago.

Borrowing this thread. More of a curious musing than an actual question. 33 year old, Chinese ethnic male, Indonesian citizen. Been in Singapore all the way from Primary 1. PSLE > O Level > A Level > NUS Bachelor's degree. Been a PR for more than 10 years. Income is average i think for my age. Finally decided to apply for citizenship - and yesterday I got my appointment in July 2017.

Any indicators for my chances? It seems everyone is screaming it's so hard to get WP/SP/EP and PR, but I don't hear anything about chances of getting citizenship.

Hey aldo, how did you snag an appointment? I've been checking a couple of times everyday for the past two weeks and couldn't get one!! Youre so lucky!

Thanks singaporeflyer!

Hi squishypui, actually I've been monitoring the appointment schedule since end last year but the whole 2017 was always booked. So I just heck la and I went to submit the application (7 screens worth of data, including my parents and siblings birth cert details and their incomes -_- better go and take a look at ALL the data needed and prepare them in one shot, because you cannot save data and come back another day).

I submitted and paid SGD100 and went to the scheduling calendar - voila half of July 2017 was available, so I booked the earliest one.

Hi All,

I've been a reader to this forum though not very active in posting. I find the information here extremely useful.

Just to share an update at my end. IPA letter for citizenship approved earlier this week!

May 2016: Online application submitted
Aug 2016: Appointment to submit documents
Jan 2017: IPA letter received

We applied as a family unit of 3 and have been living in Singapore for the last 7 years. PR status for almost 3 years.

Hi u4ria, Congrats. Managed to see where you are from based on your previous posts. Your case should have been pretty straight forward :)
