No eappointments for citizenship entire 2017?

Postby synkronize » Thu, 19 Jan 2017 9:57 pm

Hi

I was gonna get an appointment for submission for citizenship but there's not a single one for the entire year of 2017!? Is this even correct? :(

Anyone managed to secure any lately?

I reckon you need to fill in the application form and pay the $100 fee first before you're able to select a time slot. If you're just browsing you will probably see all slots are greyed out.

I think so lah... Maybe other members are in a better position to answer.

U mean submit the application electronically? But isn't the electronic application for certain types of application e.g. Descent, child born to Singaporean etc?

It says this:

This facility allows electronic submission of Singapore Citizenship Application.

The following schemes are available for application via e-SC System:

Singapore Citizen by Descent Scheme
- Children of age 1 year old and below born outside Singapore to Singapore Citizen parent(s).

Family Ties Scheme
- Singaporeans sponsoring their wives or husbands and children for Singapore Citizenship.

Economic Scheme
- Applicants applying based on their own merits, aged 21 and above.

I don't meet the 2 above but economic scheme shld be for those who don't meet any of the above?

I assume your PR is tagged to your husband? Are you gainfully employed? If I recall correctly, you can file under economic scheme as the principal applicant even though your husband is the principal PR holder.

No plans for both (or with kids) to apply for SC as a family unit?

I confirm this. Before I submitted the form with the $100 deposit, all of 2017 was full. After i submitted and paid, July slots became available by magic~
