Well I find it improbable that the gahmen has decided to stop issuing REP's (much easier to reduce the intake of PR's) so it's a curious situation. Have you done your taxes yet? (for 2017).

Recently renewed mine with automatic approval on the spot.

Must be something what flagged Jdins and queued the application for manual, more scrutinizing process.

Thanks for the feedback. Mine is due to expire in November. I wish we could apply for early renewal not just 3 months ahead.

Does the forum think that there is any value in meeting or emailing the MP or the higher ups. Or is that seen as too needy/ aggressive?
I have already cancelled 2 work trips and its taking a toll on work.

Ica response was to come back on a new visa ( like a tourist). If i need to travel.

Any news Jdins? Mine has reach 3 month point still pending in same situation as you, traveling job and several mouths to feed.

I felt that going the MP route might get attention but I'm not sure which MP would bother with PRs.

Instead of going to the MP, why don't you make a trip to ICA and tell them your situation?

You need to worry only if
- You have not physically resided in SG for the last 2-3 years
- Your Salary and CPF was not paid in SG
- You are unemployed currently

Things must have changed. When I renewed the REP for my family in June 2015, they were approved as soon as I pressed the submit button online.

Even now they do that, but not for ALL
