If you are Malaysian and your documents are in Melayu, no worries. You don't need those translated as they are in one of the four official languages of Singapore.

Hi Sp1d3rMan,

Really? I want to apply PR for my daughter, in the note it did mention document must translate in English. Did you translate when you applied for PR?

Hi all,
Just got the reply from ICA that all documents must translate in English and supreme court no longer accept private translation from this year onwards. Where can I get cheapest translation service as private translator is very expensive. Thanks in advance.

Ok, since you had been asked to translate, just get it done.

Seems that ICA Helpdesk is swamped with emails. I sent an email in July advising change of address and wife's salary revision for our Citizenship application. Got an acknowledgement couple of days ago stating that it will be forwarded to the relevant officer and apologizing for the delay. Around 2 months. :o

Yesterday I had another update for my application (my salary revision this time). So i decided to walk-in instead. Took less than 15 mins and job done.

So experts, though using e-services is generally encouraged, do you reckon walk-in for updating particulars is a wiser option, given an update could be a deciding factor in an application?
