It is usually very fast. Maximum time for the letter to reach your mailbox should be within a week. Congrats !

If I am not wrong and if you see the PR application form, the ID Card is for Malaysians only. It is not for Indian applicants. Submitting a copy of the passport, birth certificate and EP/S Pass should be good enough for the identification for yourself.

Annex A, with last 6 months of payslips should be good enough to prove your current employment. If you have an offer letter/employment offer letter, which you would have got when you joined the job, please submit the same. (This is optional).

I would suggest you to read Accompanying Notes to Form 4A, which clearly states what documents are needed. As long as you follow that, you should be fine

You can find the forms and instructions here.

Please note all the items in the Explanatory Notes including item 7(i) regarding Income Tax Notices of Assessment.

Congrats on your PR approval! Do you mind revealing some basic info about yourself so that future readers here would be able to make an informed decision based on your profile?

e.g. race, age, type of passes, when did you apply, etc.

To be honest, no two profiles with the same details requested above will have the same outcome for the PR Application.

singaporeflyer, now you know what we've been going through for the past decade. :devil:

Any you guys always wondered why we sometimes get cynical and short with some of them. Especially when one doesn't get the answer he wants so starts two more identical threads asking the same thing. :roll: :lol:
