Here is what gets me confused ...

When you apply PR, your FIN/Ep is attached to the PR Ref, and the details connected to the FIN # transfer over to PR - like DL, address etc. And until you get PR issued, you are identified by the FIN #, in Singapore.

So why Reference number ?

I am very confident here, talking about reference number only needlessly confuses people. Exceptions apply, in your case.

Quote FIN #- update ICA, and copy same MOM. Enough says me.

I can't recall if MOM allowed you to 'post' a passport update. In the past, you need to produce the new and old passport and turn up at MOM, get a Queue No for them to verify and read the data codes- especially biometric passport.

Squirrel, if the PR application is happening from outside the country, e.g, Saint, then he would not have had a FIN number as he'd never been on any type of 'residency' pass here at that point, that is why the reference number for a PR application is important.

For academic purposes, angelofhell215 who is asking in this thread- is on EP :)

Anyway, do you recall if passport updates can be done post postal notification ?

Hi All,

I make a call to ICA earlier, the officer mentioned that updating of passport is not required by ICA, just inform MOM will do. For future reference, they only require update of residential address or change of employment details.

Still waiting for results, anxiously. Please give me a sign, be it negative/positive.

Nice to know, as long as you are on EP, MOM is all you needed to notify for passport change - as it used to be in the past :D

Did you call MOM and find out if you need to physically present the passport ?

Just use iSubmit.

Oh, as academically speaking, using the PR reference number instead of a FIN is duplicating and confusing causing. All PR applicants have a PR reference number, Not all PR applicants have a FIN.
Just give them the PR appl number, as it's the same requirement for ALL applicants. Less confusing that way.

Just e-mail them the updates, quoting your reference number. Sure, they will take a week or two to respond to acknowledge that they have received and updated your passport particulars, but this is an easier way than spending 30 minutes on hold just to be told to do the former.

Is there any significant change from your previous rejection to your current re-application? (like higher salary etc?)

If none, I think your chance is just the same as your previous application.

Sorry I forgot to mention the changes in this year Application.
1) Earlier my wife wasn't working but recently she got the job and started working here.
2) Last time when we applied my wife didn't get the provisional/ final degree certificate of her Master's degree so we couldn't submit. We mentioned her degree in the application but we didn't submit the degree certificate.
3) We have not signed up for the Insurances and savings plan last time.

Would the above add value to the application chances??
