Makes no difference. Go ahead and apply. (unless there is some reason why your REP might be rejected).
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

Just means you cannot leave Singapore while it's expired as if you do you are telling ICA you are giving up your PR. In the past I've gone as long as 15 months without a valid REP. But I never left Singapore (even to Batam or Johor) so no issue.

Hi, if I want to change my name, should I change first or after get Sc approval?

And is there any way we can see our past application records whether it's for ourself or family?

Thanks for any input.. :)

I'd avoid changing your name altogether. It causes hassles everywhere.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!
