Want more advice on Citizenship in Singapore

Postby superProgrammer » Fri, 19 Aug 2011 2:51 pm

Hello everybody..
recently I got to know from my friends that we can convert to Singaporean Citizen if we are here for 3 or more years as PR.

I am a graduate from a reputed govt poly in Singapore.

I have a good pay also. (Around 1.8K per month) got PR as soon as I graduated from Poly 4 yrs back. :)

what i want to know is, being from a good family in India (My Father is a Central government officer). Will letter from a central government in India help in my citizenship application?

Hello Mr Nakatago, Nice to meet you (Although online)

Thanks you very very much for the reply.... Really appreciate it

No Singapore did not invite for citizenship yet. May be because I changed from my old room to new room (Moved to Common room from Utility room in sembawang)

i need to go to Police station and change my address.
thanks!

Your chances are slim. Singapore doesn't have much to gain from you, if at all, to be frank.

How so?

We have married Europeans with sons earning in the tens of thousands of dollars being denied PR. Now, put yourself in perspective.

You can still apply for citizenship but don't expect it to be successful. You asked for our advice. Don't be angry if we gave you some that you don't like.

I think your salary would be illegal if paid in Europe: It's that bad.

But good luck to you, go get 'em!

](*,) When you applied for PR, you did find out what the letters stand for didn't you?

Frankly, the Singapore government is regretting giving out PR so easily to people such as yourself previously, so you have no chance of getting citizenship
