PR application: qn about translating documents in Chinese

Post by zilesis » Mon, 01 Mar 2021 1:40 pm

Hi I am applying for PR for my wife, who is from China.

Her birth cert and university cert are in Chinese. Can I confirm that we will have to translate these documents?

If need to, I was quoted 300 SGD in total by a website, is that a fair amount?

Thank you!

Some of the documents have a mix of English and Chinese. Or will it be better if I submit first and let ICA reply me with which documents I have to translate?

How much is it worth if that is the only thing standing in your way of gain the PR you want? Also, do you really want to play-play with the ICA? Why not give them everything translated instead of making that have to come and ask you again. (I know if I were in ICA I wouldn't bother asking a second time because it would look like half-hearted attempt by the applicant the first time additional data was requested. But, you suit yourself.

Agree with sundaymorningstaple. It’s best that you just go ahead and get the documents translated. As far as price goes, I’m not sure if it’s a fair sum you were quoted. Maybe look a little deeper and see what you find. You don’t want to come across as half-hearted or insincere in your application, so do whatever you can to make sure your application is complete.
