Chances of citizenship approval

Postby NorthIndian » Thu, 29 Sep 2016 5:06 pm

I am 38 yrs old Indian male , 10 yrs - SPR along with my wife and staying with family in Singapore since last 11 yrs. Me and my wife both are working. I have 2 kids and they are also SPR. I have never done any work at grassroot level or done anything for community work apart from paying Income tax, donate to Cancer Society.

What are chances of my Citizenship will get approved?

Kindly suggest.

Even if you were active in CC and such, that won't make a difference.

Probably the odds are better, but whether that means successful or not is another story. Before odds maybe only 30%, now maybe 50%, but no guarantees. Have seen it go well over 12 months and be approved and also seen them being rejected. There is just no telling. It's rough as you cannot really wriggle too much and at the same time maybe preventing you from using Plan B (assuming you have one). Only thing I can say is hold your breath and hang on for the ride.

Probably a closet racist, hence the not so subtle nick, thinking he's better than the Southern/other Indians.
