One of our former regulars here applied for PR on the family ties scheme with his Singaporean wife while both were still in the UK. I believe there was another on here in the past year as well.
As a separate but related question, have you also known of cases where PR was rejected, and Citizenship offered instead? - No.
I know folks who were told by ICA to apply LTVP in lieu of PR, and same advice came during a MPS too.138BCL wrote: As a separate but related question, have you also known of cases where PR was rejected, and Citizenship offered instead?
Yes, since the 2010 election, foreign spouses / children of citizens are often being "recommended" to go -> LTVP/LTVP+ -> after 3 years -> PR.138BCL wrote:Of those folks include spouses and children of Singapore citizens too? What's MPS?
The idea was to stifle marriages of convenience, which may still happen.138BCL wrote:Thanks. PR application has been submitted and nowadays I do get a sense that the government does want to do something for non-citizen spouses and children of citizens. But as you say selection criteria and decision times are sufficiently opaque and on a case by case basis.
hi i would appreciate your opinion.. my wife's father who just became a grandpa this year, is 55 and has been working in singapore for 10 years, he's married to a singaporean. do you think it will be too old for him to apply for PR?sundaymorningstaple wrote:Pretty Observant, you are. You can, however, check the availability every morning and maybe catch a drop out. But remember you can only change twice after that you are going to have to start over. Make sure you have all your paperwork down to the last sheet BEFORE you go shopping for new appointment dates.
thanks bbcwatcher.BBCWatcher wrote:Quoting ICA: "25. I am above 50 years old. Am I still eligible to apply for SPR? You may submit an application for our consideration. Each application is considered on its own merits."
So ICA's answer is no, he is not too old to apply. Whether he's too old to be approved is a separate question, and only ICA knows the answer to that question.
