Interview letter from ICA after 8th month of PR application

Postby pinkypillz » Mon, 04 Oct 2010 10:01 pm

Hi,
Me and my husband applied for SPR 8 months back. We just received an interview letter from ICA.

Can anyone please tell me what this interview is about? Please share your experiences about this situation.

Thank you.

Hi singaporeflyer,
Thanks for the reply. I have already read the links which you posted. But no one in those topics posted anything useful enough regarding their interview experience.
I would appreciate if anyone can share their interview experience.
Peace :)

Please note that no two PR interview experience would be the same. They would ask you questions based on the papers you have submitted. If you answer them honestly and positively, with real desires to sink roots in Singapore, you would have a good chance.

Actually, if you have got to the interview stage, you really have to screw it up big time as you are already approved for all intents and purposes. You wouldn't be having the interview otherwise. Not to sure what all it entails today, but way back when, it was more a getting to know you and flesh out some fine details (to see if you fabricated you application - :wink: ) Don't sweat it. You'll be fine.

If you already got an inteview, you have one foot on the door unless you muck it up big time.
Questions that they will ask will be as follows.
1. Any changes in EP pass or jobs
2. Income or Salary increment ?
3. Educational documents submitted. Do NOT Lie on your papers as they will know if your papers are dodgy.
4. Family tree ??
5. any other infos that you may want to add on to increase your approval will be good.
It will be along these lines from past experiences for my wife. Relax and you will be fine.

Hi Mad Scientist,
Thanks for narrowing it down. The only thing that has changed since our PR application is the Salary of my husband. There was an increment 3 month ago. We did not notified MOM or ICA till now about that. Would that be a problem?
Thanks,

The employer can update the MOM by faxing in a letter to the MOM with the date of effect of the new salary.

The same document can be submitted as an additional document at ICA. You can do this at the permanent resident service center at ICA either by filling up a form and dropping in the drop box with the additional document or submit it over the counter at ICA.

I think I would just bring it with me to the interview rather than submit it as SF suggests. Sometimes, and we've seen it here already, when submitting "additional" documents, it tends to cause the wheels of progress to come to a jerky halt. I don't think it's necessary to deliberately throw a wrench into the cogs at this point in time. It can just be presented to the interviewer at that time. Frankly, as said, it's really a no-brainer at this point of the game.

Good Luck.
