The problem which many people will raise here is that you should have got PR (or citizenship) and thus should have served NS. You were eligible in terms of age and in terms of parentage, but you didn't serve. I'm not going to lay blame here, as other members of this site are far more capable than i am at that ...


Anyway, if we leave out the NS issue, which is significant, your application would typically lean on the side of success given your nationality and ethnic group.
What stands against you, is your very low salary, and your degree level.
Thanks for taking your time to response, really appreciate here :love:

"The problem which many people will raise here is that you should have got PR (or citizenship) and thus should have served NS."
Yes i understand what you trying to say. Everybody say the same things" your dad are a Singaporean why you are not?" " why you didnt apply for citizenship?"
Honestly i tried and i thought i 100% will get it when i was 14, however it got rejected. (My dad decease around this age)
When i was 18, i tried to write in again and told them i am able to surrender myself to NS if PR or citizenship was granted. But got rejected again. I was thinking is it because my dad was not around anymore that's why they don't accept me, but you know when ICA reject you, they wont let you know the reason.


"What stands against you, is your very low salary, and your degree level."
Yes that's right, but a fresh grad in engineering field can only earn that much with Diploma.
Trying my best right now to get my degree.


Really appreciate your replies though.
There is something else going on if your dad applied for citizenship and you didn't get it. I can't imagine a reason why they would have rejected it.

I leave it the rest of the experts here as I don't have sufficient knowledge on this.

Hey there, you should try applying again. Don't give up yet.. I apply twice before in 2016 but couldn't get through.. I am from india and apply together with my wife and my daughter. This year they are giving more PR. i just gotten my approval with my family. My malaysian colleagues have gotten approval too. I apply through a consultancy firm though.

No I was born only after they married.
Nobody know why also, like I say ICA won’t not tell you the reason why they reject you

Theoretically

1. Uni grads have better chances than poly grads
2. Malaysian Chinese have better chances than other races
3. Younger folks have better chances as well

So, if I were you. I’d apply again after completion of the degree.

Unless you have a criminal record.
Then, that’s a totally different story altogether.

My thought

You are offspring of Singaporean. And holding other citizenship (Malaysian).
If ICA grant you PR, as you're first generation PR, you dont need to do NS.
With the close relationship between Singapore n Malaysia.

I can guess, there will be lots of ppl will fly to Malaysia to give born and get Malaysia citizen.
Few yrs later, apply PR and get it (assume). No need to do NS.
It's so good.

ICA will not open this door.

This is purely my thought. does not represent ICA
