Submitted application today - had to make a lot of amendments

Postby Lotus1990 » Tue, 03 May 2016 6:19 pm

Hi guys,

I'm just curious if any of you were asked to make amendments during your application submission? I had to make changes in about 5 different places (at least) and was told to populate the Annexe A form on behalf of my company (my company submitted a letter instead of populating the form)? I was also told to write a note to explain the situation. I was also asked to make a new photocopy of my ID because the one submitted was not clear.

Is this normal? Or is my application down the drain? :s

Thanks..

Same happened to me aswell.
I wrote my race as Chinese but was told to strike out that portion because none of my certificate identifies myself as a Chinese.

Nothing is down the drain.

I suspect your company HR hasn't submitted anything and playing safe.

Unless they showed the amendments requested by MOM.

How Chinese are you ? 1% ? 10% ? 50% ?

I understand that Singapore may be getting bit careful with folks claiming Chinese heritage, and that could crowd the crowded city.

Especially those hoping for a one up in passes and PR.

100% well both my mom and dad have chinese ancestry, thing is in indonesia my grandparents decide to play safe by adopting a non-chinese name officially in our birth certificates to better assimilate in society and mitigating any kind of racism or backlash due to having chinese names.

well didn't know that it might have impact down the drain when applying PR :-k
