Is it worth trying!!

Postby rishenv » Thu, 16 Jun 2011 6:18 pm

Hi,

There has been a few testimonies out there that some people after several spass/ep application rejected up to 10 times and approved at the end.

Is it worth for pursuing the better life here rather than back in 3rd world hometown?

Can i have your though about this? thanks.

Any appeal or re-application will only change the outcome if the circumstances have changed.
"Pretty pleeease, look at it AGAIN!" does not work with Singapore authorities.
They often (but not always) tell you the reason for a rejection (ask the officer in person!). If it's you (nationality, education, age, etc.), you may or may not be able to change. If it's the employer (eligibility, foreigner ratio, salary, etc.), look for another one. Sometimes it's just the wrong time (economy down, election coming, your country's quota used up, etc.), in which case re-applying a year later might help.

More-over, if you appeal with no valid reasons to appeal I would not be surprised if this is held against you one day.

10 times rejection is a bit too much. if you're coming in as a tourist, you will only have 30 days legal stay here. I don't think you will have enough time to appeal 10 times.

Once again, you've stuck your foot in your mouth and shown all and sundry you don't have a clue as to what you are talking about. US, UK, Aus citizens as well as others can get 90 day visas on arrival.

I'm from a third world hometown and I get 90 days if I want it. If you've been to the US in the past 10 years you would agree with me as well.
