PR Status pending - 20 months for dependant daughter

Post by ArK05 » Thu, 07 Nov 2019 10:30 am

Hello Fellow Expats,
Applicant details - (my daughter)
Indian, Student Pass Holder, 14 years old (my daughter)
Studying in International School in Singapore since 2015
Sponsor details - (myself)
Indian, SPR since 2006 gainfully employed in Singapore in MNC, paying taxes, CPF, etc, single mother.
Permanent Custody of child with me, all documents clear.

Application for PR - (for my daughter) - to ICA applied in Feb 2018 but online status shows 'pending' for almost 20 months.

What would be the chances of getting approval, any insights?
Thanks and regards in advance.

Interesting one. I suspect the International School is part of the issue. I expect she will get it when a slot frees up otherwise you'd have been rejected very early on. Singapore needs young people. Do you intend to take up SC? That should be communicated as well.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Thanks for your inputs.
As you pointed out, that could be the issue.
Yes, I intend to settle in Singapore for good and apply for SC, waiting for her PR application status though...hoping for a positive reply from ICA!

For non-Malaysian dependent PR applicants whose parents were approved before 2009, there is a less than 50% chance of approval in my opinion. My own daughter's latest application was rejected after 14 months. My profile is Filipino, PR since 2005. Applied for SC as a family two years ago but also rejected. I have heard of approvals but not first hand.

My status is pending too. Applied July 2018. I was rejected in 2017 but a few changes to my profile like I had more kids ( twins boy and a girl ) , bought a commercial property etc ) and longer duration of stay ( touching 6 years now )

I too would think maybe some slots to empty out before approving some of us ( or not ) otherwise should have got a straight forward rejection some time ago.

Oh ok, thanks for the feedback! Wondering what could be the general criteria for most Indian SPR dependent approvals.
Still hoping for the best. Good luck to you too, regards.

Good luck to you! regards.

If those will help, ICA and MP session will be flooded by these type of request.

Just wait

Infact if you get SC, you can apply for SC for your daughter too?
