Citizenship application pending

Post by gizmogeek » Mon, 13 Jul 2020 6:02 pm

Hi Guys, Anyone got recent update on citizenship application status during COVID? Mine is pending, applied in April-19. Following this forum, some of you say it brings good luck here. Hopefully right :D

You haven't stated your Race which seems to matter more than nationality. (Not trying to be PC, but I've known more than one ethnic Chinese/ hakka Indian citizens residing in singapore).
That is the only thing lacking, else you seem good to go with more than a shoe in.
Were you ever invited to apply for SC in the early years when you were a PR? If you had ignored or rejected back then, it may be a negative.

On the old paper SC forms there used to be a columns for the officer to write down additional details on the ethnicity from nric records (blanketedly labeled 'dialect group'). So i wouldn't be surprised if they have had further quotas on these subdivisions all along too.

All aside, it is reasonable to assume all processing may have been briefly on hold the past few weeks. They may be waiting for new criteria and policy directions from the ministry after the recent elections. Given all the rabble and vitirol filled whatsapp rumors on how certain new citizens were responsible for swaying the recent east coast election results, we can only wait and watch how the future approval trends turn out to be.

Hi Subconwretch,

Thank you for your response. ☺️

Race is also Indian.
No. We were never offered citizenship before.
Yeah. Covid and the recent election are my real worry.

Like what everyone says... Wait and watch should be my mantra.
