PR application

Post by IYK » Mon, 05 Oct 2009 8:31 pm

Cheers All,

My PR application got rejected after more than a 2 months of processing in mid july 09. I am a Pakistani citizen holding an EP Q1 for 2 years plus valid till 2012.

Also done a grad-diploma on Sg student pass in 2004 and then got one year pass through EDB support for my business plan. I have mostly been in UK last year due to business and family reasons but my Singapore business was as usual in operation. Could it be only due to the absence from Sg?

The rejection does not state any reason and the duration after which I could re-apply.

Opinions/advice please.

thanks n cheers!

Opinion only. More than likely. It would appear that you do not have any intentions of staying in Singapore as you have been in the UK, most probably trying to prepare a bolt-hole there as well. Immigration is wising up here and not soon enough.

I'm guessing you spent longer than you should have done in the UK!

Agreed, must have been your time in the UK but that is my opinion only. From their point of view, why did you leave Singapore for the UK and only now return and apply for PR just when you come back from the UK?

Thank you all for your experienced inputs. Actually my wife (GP doctor) and daughter live in the UK and I intend to relocate them to Sg too once I am settled. I was mostly in UK and my home country last year after my marriage on 30th Dec 2007 for a few business (new venture prospects) & domestic reasons.

I would rather give it a try in Jan 2010 if not before then.

cheers and thanks!

Maybe I suggest from what you've said above that you don't actually have a EP but in fact a PEP, An EP is only valid for 2 years.

As you were in UK for an extented period and therefore probably not submitted Singapore tax returns you really didn't tick many of the PR boxes

Permanent Resident Application Canada

Post by Rocky140 » Fri, 09 Oct 2009 5:44 pm

Good Day:

I would like some clarification regarding the Permanent Resident application process.

After receiving the AIP, sending out the application for the Open Work Permit,
and applying for the SIN soon after, what other documents (besides the ones listed below) are required to obtain the Permanent Resident Card ?? I believe i have to send the documents to CPC Vegreville

Certificate of criminal record clearance
Copies of AIP received
PR Application form
Payment receipt
Supplementary form
Copy of passport
Photos
Copy of SIN form that has been processed

Will the card be sent directly to my residential address?

Good Day,

I believe you have landed on the wrong forum. You might want to search up a Canadian forum.
