SC application

Postby amanda85 » Fri, 06 Oct 2017 4:15 pm

Hi I have a question regarding my SC application,

I am a Singapore PR and have applied for a Singapore Citizenship. Last week after 8 months of SC application (still waiting for IPA), I received an invitation letter from PA (People association) and National Integration Council to attend a chit chat session and also some activities. Is it the way ICA nowadays to access its candidate for SC? or it is normal for them to invite a Singapore PR for this event? I have been a Singapore PR for 4 years and they have never invited me for this kind of event or activity before. Hopefully, someone on this forum could give some information or have a similar situation as me.

Thank you

First time we are hearing about such an invitation. I think this can be a positive sign.

Where are you from and any short introduction about your profile?

Hold your horses :D

PA recruiting .. obvious targets are PRs and SCs ..

Somewhere along the way, ICA added your IC to the Database, (hope you didn't chose DNC .. ) .. happens ..

I am Malaysian Chinese. Well I just wonder why i suddenly receive this kind of invitation out of the blue. Since I have been a Singapore Pr since 4 years ago and lived in Singapore since 10 years ago and never received this kind of invitation ever. Maybe I am really under their radar before and now since I applied for SC I am on their database again :)

As I said, NO.

PA/NIC has been doing this for a while.

Especially PA.

Anyway as Malaysian, you have good chance for SC.

Good luck.

I submitted SC application on Feb'16 together with my family. My SC application rejected on 11 May'17. I submitted an appeal on 16 May'17. I received the invitation to chit-chat session on end of Aug'17. I did not attend the chit-chat session as i assumed it was just an random invitation. My appeal for SC is still pending. Two months before i went to my neighborhood RC and expressed my willingness to become a volunteer. I submitted membership application. Until now i haven't get any response.

What is your profile? How long are you a PR?

Any sons?
Are your kids on LTVP for the reason you never applied for PR for them?

That sucks. You have done it right so hopefully your persistency is going to pay off sooner or later and this is "just" the race factor.
