Thought I'd share this in here, FWIW.

Friend of mine just got his PR a week ago. He applied 6 months ago, 2 years after joining one of those hard disk makers on an S-Pass.

He's single, Malaysian Indian, early 30s. He can't possibly be making any more than 40K annually, excluding overtime.

So....doesn't really tick all the standard boxes other than being Malaysian. I mean, not enough tax returns, not really making big bucks, and 6 months waiting time.....yet, he is now one happy camper. Guessing he will be ready to start job hopping soon....haha.

If he applied 2 years after joining a company here, unless he joined that company on 1 January, he would have had 3 tax assessments, add the fact that he is a Malaysian Indian, not a one from the motherland, means he also is easily assimilated into Singapore culture as well and he would naturally tend to immerse himself in with the local population, unlike the majority of Indian Nationals who tend to shun the local Indian population. Guess the haha is on you?

Possibly....he just said 2 years so not sure exactly when. I didn't ask, don't really care actually. Just thought I'd share that in here, seeing how quick he got approved and working just 2 years, that too in a blue collar job. When I asked him what exactly made him apply PR he said.....easy to look for job after this, bro ! Typical with many of my countrymen who live in JB and apply for PR in SG...

Had to laugh, That is what probably 70% of those who take up PR say (after getting the PR). Not from just Malaysia, but everywhere. ;-)

To be more precise, the majority of Indian nationals tend to shun the local population and culture in general, they don't just shun the local Indians. All the more reason why we find it harder to be approved for PR or SC.

Valid point, smoulder. But you can get away with that, I can't! Only my wife is Indian, I'm not! ;-)

Malaysian is generic and represents nationality. If you see what SMS and others are saying it will refer to Nationality + Ethinicity and not just nationality alone.

Hi guys,
How to update passport details while the PR application already submitted and ongoing? It was few months we have submitted the application, now my spouse and child passport just renew. My spouse already changed his passport details with MOM and my son passport with ICA (since he is under dependent pass).

Can't find any link with ICA site how to do that. Any hint is appreciated.
Stay safe everyone!

Even though ICA will have the details from MOM, it is better to update them with the new passport details. You may call their call center and ask them on how you can submit these updated documents? Else you may walkin to ICA with the application reference number and submit this as additional documents in the front desk.
