Student Pass and Employment Pass are different than PR. In the case of PR, ICA will want to see solid proof supported by documentation, else anyone can claim to be of a particular ethnicity.Number13000 wrote: ↑Sun, 06 Sep 2020 9:45 pmJumping on this via the topic of Eurasians. I have a PR application currently outstanding (posted in other thread for advice) and I for all intents and purposes identify as a Eurasian.
Mod mentioned this might be a stuff-up if I was not bona-fide Eurasian which leads me to ponder on ICA/G's view on Eurasian and where they fit in terms of PR application.
I have an Anglo-Saxon last name through my New-Zealand (mixed-race) father of Maori/Caucasian heritage and a Eurasian lineage through my Anglo-Indian-Portuguese mother, who grew up in Malaysia and Singapore while retaining British nationality. When I acquired my student pass and subsequent E-pass, I was both-times allowed to choose my race and chucked Eurasian as the easiest modifier. My total mix broken down (not that ICA will ever know) is 35/65 Non-White/White.
If they need documents as proof of Eurasian heritage, I can also supply as my maternal grandparents are indeed from India.
I doubt they will dig that rabbit hole, but I am not at all a Chinese or Malay creole from Malacca. There are of course, many Anglo-Indians in our peninsular history. I do not know yet if I should consider the ICA as a race scholar when interrogating my Eurasian heritage in my application...
Anyway based on what you have said in your first post, your chance is likely going to be low.
