@Barnsley - Just like the Singapore paddler who went back to China and gave up her SC and got back her PRC Citizenship.

Just received rejection on my application including wife and two children. 7 month wait.

Funny thing, is that my junior work colleague from the US - who is single, but younger than me - was accepted. Major difference - Chinese ancestry. The annoying thing is that he doesn't plan on staying here for the long term!

Ah well, apply again later in the hear. Just been promoted and I now support the business license (part of a big bank).

Been there, seen enough of folks who get SC and as soon as they get it, they pack their bags using the various advantages the Pink IC brings.

Alas, ICA has no way to find out the actual intentions when they give out SC.

From ICA's point of view i see nothing but potentials.

Single - can get married to a local girl
Young - does have more time and opportunity to soak into local culture.
Chinese? nothing more to say.

edit: spelling - local , time, opportunity

Several factors: Age and professional level - if older but not 'climbing the ladder' as ICA would like, then no go. Age and salary - if stagnant salary or below average for either profession or age, then no go.

You don't mention wife... is she SC or applying for PR as well?

Hi! I was just wondering if anyone here could help me evaluate my chances of getting a Singapore citizenship! I've searched many other forums but this one was the most useful so far so I really hope to get some opinions from the people here :)

I'm Malaysian Chinese, only 19 this year but planning to apply for citizenship once I'm 21. I've obtained my PR since 2002 so that means that I would have been a PR for 15 years by the time I'm eligible for application. Completed my primary, secondary and junior college education all here in Singapore and am planning to study overseas with the intention of coming back to work. The main thing I'm worried about is that, since I would only be 21 then, how would the ICA "judge" my "usefulness" if I'm still in school without a salary, etc.?

Would really appreciate any help given :) Thanks!

Do you mean you want to apply SC while you are studying overseas ? that might raise a red flag. If I were you, I would finish my study overseas, get a job in Singapore and then apply.

IMO living in Singapore,for SC application, might be the most important judging point of all , as well as for REP renewals.

Good luck

Sister in Law PR for many years but didn't apply together, BIL not staying in Singapore,everyday in and out, so i think that's many factors causing the rejection,
