New Born PR - Approved

Postby vaikrit » Fri, 09 Oct 2015 11:44 am

Hi All,
Just wanted to share my experience for the forumers. My daughter was born in March this year in KKH. Both me and my wife are SPR of 8 years and 3 years respectively.

Directly went to ICA within the 42 day period with the letter and birth cert that we received from the hospital to apply for my daughters PR, no separate appointment was required and our queue number was called within 30 minutes. She was given an additional 3 months social visit pass to account for the PR processing time. We were told that we will need to come back (walk in, no appointment) if the PR application is not approved within that time and apply for Long Term Pass. My wife and daughter then left for India for 3 months. All along the PR status was pending.

They came back this week with my daughter on Tourist Visa and was granted SVP for 30 days. As per ienquiry the PR application is now approved. :) Now I am waiting for the letter to see if the formalities are any different for new borns.

Thanks for the update. Nice to know that the formality for newborns of existing PRs are not always painful as shared by other PR parents.

How fast did the Indian high commission get her passport ready?

Like PH embassy, Did you have to bring the child to the high commission?

Congratulations for the new born!!!

Her Indian passport was ready within a week of submission and delivered to our house with an extra payment of $10 for courier charges. The Indian new passport application is outsourced to VFS Global. I did not have to bring my child either to VFS or the high commission, I only downloaded and filled up the passport application form with photo and her thumbprint (which was essentially just a cute blot of ink), birth cert and parents passport and submitted it at VFS.

Seems India is more efficient than PH :)

Thanks for the update anyway, for those who may need to refer it in the future.
