Hahaha my proceed to upload documents also missing. My case history

1) Living in Singapore- 16 years.
2) Dad born in Singapore and his family is Singapore and mum is on LTVP.
3) Did my N , O , Diplomas and Degree in Singapore with first class honours — under student pass when studying
4) Started work March 2021
5) Applied PR on November 28th 2021
6) Button disappeared on 28th March 2022

I applied for PR more than 7 times when I was a kid and all got rejected — under dad as my sponsor.

What are the nationalities of your parents, yourself?
Dad born in Singapore and if Singaporean, are you not Singaporean too?
What is your salary?

Guess - may be a rejection as it is too fast.

I'm guessing because his mother was and is on an LTVP he has his mother's nationality and was kept on the Student's visa to avoid NS possibly. The first application for PR using the father as a sponsor was letting the cat out of the bag. and ICA doesn't take kindly to those who try to subvert the rules here.

I always wanted to serve NS here. My first PR application was like 13 years ago when I was a kid and it got rejected as well. Since then , I applied more 6 more times till I was 21 using my dad as a sponsor.

With ICA aware that your father is a Singaporean, and you did not do NS because you were kept on a Student's Visa you need to get a valid Plan B. Your existing Plan B will not work as ICA has all of your applications and history so they will know you didn't do NS (you didn't say you did, but only that you wanted to) So even if you marry your previous history is already there. Your FIN number never changes unless you get PR or SGC. Even if you leave for 20 years and come back you will still have the same FIN number, e.g., you are a marked man. Oh, be sure to thank your father for screwing up your life.

I think ICA will know that I tried to apply for more than 7 times even when I was on student visa. I went to meet the MP like few times. They also wrote letter to ICA clearly stating that I’m willing to do NS when I was 15 years old. Means it’s not about they mark me down cause I wasn’t willing to serve the nation. I just waiting for the rejected notice hahaha. Thanks for the help guys. Will notify once I get the official rejection confirmation 😂

Unless I'm mistaken, it seems that the ICA doesn't seem to believe you. It sucks if it's the case, but there's not much you can do about it but keep an open mind about your options. Like SMS said, plan B is quite likely not viable.

Haron needs a plan B. Any child born to a married Singaporean is eligible for SG citizenship regardless if born overseas or in SG. If you were born in SG, it already looks very suspicious. Your dad screwed you over, sadly, thinking he was “doing you a favour” for potentially skipping NS.

There is surely something missed out. When was your first PR application made ? What age?

My first application was when I was 13. Then two or three more applications directly through ICA portal. Then appeals from MP for the subsequent application.

Now I’m gonna just concentrate on my work. Look for career progression and gain plenty of experience. Gonna just marry here and at least get a LTVP and wait for the right time to apply. I have up applying and just concentrate on my life. I will still update my rejected news soon ahahah. I envy those who got PR here. Tc guys
