Citizenship application submitted - jobless soon

Postby Bb_jie » Fri, 07 Apr 2017 4:10 am

Hello,

Im applying for SG citizenship and next month is my appointment to submit document. Im going to be out of job before my appointment date. Do u all think being out of job at this time will affect my chances of getting a successful outcome?

I have an employment letter with me though.

Profile:
Female. 30 years old. Married to Singaporean spouse. Been in Singapore since age of 6. Born in Malaysia. 9 years of CPF contribution.
Both parents and two sisters are PR.
Mother and two sisters have also applied for citizenship at the same time.

I welcome your comments/thoughts :)

Have a nice day!

Since your spouse is SC it shouldn't matter much. Plus you are the preferred type .. ;)

go ahead. Nothing worse can happen if they reject it, right ?

Hi, all.

I submitted my Singapore Citizenship Applicaiton on 14 Apr 2016 and until today the status is still Pending.

Below are my details:

PR since: 31 Mar 2014
Race: Chinese
Nationality: Malaysian
Age: 33
Occupation: Senior Executive Officer, IT
Income: 50k and above per annum
Marital Status: Single
Have been in SG: 13 years and above, study and work
Education BG: NUS Bachelor Degree
Siblings: Elder sister and bro in law are both Singaporean but we live separately.

Just got a reply from ICA that my application is currently under proccessing and may take up to 6 - 12 months.

Knowing that there are peoples with their application pending period more than 12 months, may I know my chances of getting citizenship since the status of the application already pending for 11 months and going to 12 months.

Thanks a lot for any comments.

The delay may be because you applied immediately after 2 years of being a PR.

I agree. What I mean is since it is just 2 years of PR, ICA may be taking a bit longer to find the time to approve :)

Hi, I just got my In-Principle Approval letter on 21 Jul 2017. Would like to know the following:

i) If I finished my SC Journey, how long will it takes for me to receive the Approval Letter from ICA?

ii) With the Approval Letter from ICA, I will have to renounce my Msia Citizenship, how long will it takes for me to receive the letter of renunciation from High Commission of Msia?

iii) After I submit the letter of renunciation to ICA, can I apply to SG passport because I will be going for a business trip at the end of Oct 2017.

Thanks.
