Can we actually request them to resend the letter? In circumstances like this, it is really unusual for local mails to not arrive after 1 week.

Lost mail, it happens ... but damn some luck you have there, happens to be a very important mail to have it undelivered.
I recalled there's a case where a mail delivery woman had her bike full of undelivered mails stolen when she went for the loo.

Let us know when you received your blue card, congrats! :)

It's seriously luck as I having my flight to oversea later, well they called me this morning, and allowed me to self collect in the evening. Another tips to share:
Well is gonna happen when calling to ICA operator and they will suggested that email to ica_pr@ica.gov.sg but do not email to there but use the feedback email ICA_feedback@ica.gov.sg which they will more noticed.

Thanks again and good luck to those still pending... Cheers

Mine took almost 6 weeks to arrive. 6 weeks biting my nails hoping that they hadn't changed their minds, and of incessantly feeling around my postbox twice a day.....eventually came through but only after I emailed them.

Congrats on the PR man! Hopefully with this status you'll face less obstacles in a society where English is the primary language to function.
