Sorry to hear that your PR application was rejected. You will have a better chance if you are Chinese from China or Indian from India. They don't like 'ang moh' so much because 'ang moh' have too much opinion and dare to speak up.wailing_imam wrote:I am a UK citizen, mid 30s, in my second stint in Singapore. In between stints I worked for a Singaporean company in Shanghai and Suzhou.
I am married to a Singaporean and have a Singaporean child.
Both of us are educated to degree level.
However, this is still not enough for me to get a PR it seems.
I wonder which clowns are making these decisions. Are they educated? Are they being thorough? Are there racial quotas.
I have appealed and am waiting for their reply. I find the whole process rather opaque and would actually like to argue my case face to face with someone rather than receiving these empty letters and notes with no information about which criteria I still need to fulfill.
This is the kind of attitude that Singapore needs .. Welcome to Singapore - I would personally write a letter recommending your application, if I could do (no sir, I am not from any agency and that was a tongue in cheek comment)wailing_imam wrote: I wonder which clowns are making these decisions.

Getting a PR is not a right. Guidelines for Grant of PR change with planned or unplanned changes to Immigration policies which are thoughtfully worked out like in all other countries on political, demographic, social and other prevailing and topical issues of concern to the government and of course those governed ie the electorate. If you have been current with the media in recent years, the latter are figuring much more importantly in policy planning in the current political climate of the day, much more so given the planned polls before the half year is out. So those who may have qualified in previous set of guidelines may not necessarily do so now. And if they do on the face of it do, there would be a fair amount of discretion given to the approving officer to highlight certain critieria more onerously than others in their running through of the approval process.wailing_imam wrote:Thanks for your input.
