Here is what gets me confused ...BBCWatcher wrote:2. Failing that, provide reasonable information to make it as easy as possible for ICA to locate your PR application. Your FIN is an important element, yes.
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.
