Typo Error in PR Application

Post by pp75 » Thu, 08 Jan 2009 3:44 pm

After almost 2 months of application for PR I realised that I made a typo error in the application form. In the annexure page where the employer endorses the applicant's employment, there's a section which needs to filled in :- Monthly Basic and Monthly Gross. I wrote the Monthly Basic salary correctly but in the Monthly gross, by mistake I put the Annual gross amount. The employer HR also didnt notice this and they too signed the Annexure.

However I had attached the appointment letter as part of the supporting document which states the salary correctly. I am now really worried whether ICA would reject the application because of this.

Have anyone come across such cases before ?? So far I havent heard anything from ICA. What are the chances ?

Why don't you just call the ICA and bring it to the case officer's attention?

Have you ever tried calling the ICA especially PR dept :o

Ok I know you probably haven't, but calling the ICA is a waste of time at best :cool:

True! I forgot all about that! :oops:
Well, its down to either looking up the civil service directory and calling someone in particular, or a visit in person if he's losing sleep over it. I don't think they'll can his application just for that alone, maybe they'll call to verify eventually... :D

I had called them today to ask about the status, but I didnt mention abt it. The officer said the status is still "in process". He said it normally takes around 3-6 months.

I am sure they would understand it as the gross salary mentioned there is basic * 12. And anyways they can always refer to the documents attached along with the application. I just hope they ignore this typo error.

I really wouldn't worry about it. I am sure that ICA have come across worse typos! Let's face it: most PR applicants would not have English as a first language. At the most, you may be asked to clarify what you have written.

Yes, what you have said is correct. I myself went to ICA and told them about this and they asked me to write an application for the correction. I have done that. My only concern was this shouldnt delay the process.
