Yes. If we login the iEnquiry often, they assume that we are deliberately trying to get citizenship. That's what one of my friend told. I was not able to believe it too.

Lol. Firstly, ienquiry is updated 2-3 days after a person receives the ipa / rejection. So we won't get any useful information from checking ienquiry anyway.
Secondly it is foolish to think ICA bothers with how often you check ienquiry. Stay rational guys.
Personally, with me checking the mailbox almost everyday for some news it has never been this tidy before. Bills, road taxes, even random property launches and mall sales all are getting noticed instantly by me nowadays... :-)

hahaha, when i applied for my PR/citizen, me n my wife almost check 3 times a day, if they are measuring us by that, i would recommended you log in and check every half and hour to show how desperate to get a PR/ citizen here. (Just Joking)

Anyway, checking Mail box or keep your phone contactable seems a better way. i noticed that almost those applied with family tier, you will be receiving a call from ICA to obtain your financial status again.

No right or wrong answer. Try it if you want but for me, i will wait patiently to the given date.

I've submitted my wife application in around Aug'15 and the interview date is by end of November.

Which is the faster of the two process? Online or paper based?
It looks like paper based application would be a faster process since we can submit our supporting documents on the same day.
With Online application you already lose 3-4 months during submission alone.

Guys, print out paper form, fill it, walk-in to ICA, take queue number as new submission to evaluate eligibility. Once you are eligible, they will give you their interview slot.

To Creamyz,

I walk in submission, they will give you slot.

Creamyz, call ICA and check, confirm they allow double submission.

Pardon me. Did you mean get e appointment or e submission ?

Curious to know since when ICA allowed citizenship applications online.

They need to verify each and every document in person. Or so I thought
