Change of employer resulted in rejection of PR, NOT TRUE.

Postby jackfood » Sat, 28 Nov 2015 10:15 am

I applied for PR, I changed employer 6 months after application. Jobless for one month and moved to another employer on Aug 2015. Updated ICA on Oct 15 without Form A. My Salary is only about $2400, holding S pass.

PR Approved as from Nov 2015.

My profile / Merit:
Age: 27
I am a Nurse.
I speak Malay, English, Mandarin.
I am a Chinese
I worked in Singapore for past 3 years.

These are my merit I guess. Singapore has Nurse Shortage, and I am able to converse well in Singapore.

So I saw some posts written,

viewtopic.php?t=77936

that by updating ICA about your particular may result in rejection of PR application, and I think that is not true. It depends on individual merits on the application. And also demands of worker for a particular job field. So good luck.

Agreed, re: if you fit the profile, ICA will not reject your application easily ...

Likewise, I know folks who changed job, got their approval and then couldn't proceed because new bosses refused to endorse the employment details.

And also know those who were in the same boat, ICA accepted pay slips as proof of employment.

We really don't know on what grounds ICA folks make such decision, the idea is to minimise reasons for rejection.

Welcome to the blue IC !!!

Ps, Singapore is short of nurses, and even Filipino and Myanmar nurses get PR, but no pink IC.

You have lot of positives there ...

For medical field, Singapore recognises Malaysian awarded degrees.

Totally not true.
I change job while PR application in progress.
But did not Inform ICA immediately as the new company not willing to fill Annex 4a.
Suddenly PR approved after 1 month work in the new company. And ICA did not said anything...

Hi Hendra,
So do we need to inform ICA or not about the job change?
If yes, do I need to re-submit the complete form again with the new employment info and Annex 4A form?
When you got your PR approved, I thought ICA will request to fill form/document by your current employer?

I think you should not notify them. Let them know that you will do as little as possible to get what you supposedly desire. I guess I was brought up differently in as much as I try to not give them any reason to have second thoughts about my application. But then again, that's only me and I've already been a PR for a quarter century.

In exceptional cases, ICA may accept current employer's pay slip.

Note, in exceptional cases.

Mostly they consider the application withdrawn if under PTS.

By right you have to inform ica for the job change and resubmit annex 4a with new employer stamp n signature. But for my case, due to the company not willing to sign annex4a since i am a new joiner, they only willing to sign once i got approved. And while i am still in dilemma, suddendly i got the good news that my pr approved. 3 weeks after i join new company. So nothing to lose, called ica and they said it is fine since already approved. I just need to get the new employer sign the 212 form (cmiiw) and provide contract letter.
