PR application rejected without reason or when to re-apply

Postby lighter1 » Thu, 06 Oct 2011 9:07 pm

My wife PR application was rejected without any reason or when to re-apply.
Anybody has the same kind of reject letter as mine? What did you do?
I wanted to appeal, just go to my MP to say my situation, then they just write a letter to ICA, correct me if i am wrong.

My wife is PRC, i am Singaporean.
Relocated back to SG last Aug-10 with my wife.
We ROM in Sep-11. The short term pass and long term visit pass are smooth.

We submit our application in May-11.
I also change my job in late May-11, salary did increased.

I want to know how to appeal and how long that takes?
Hopefully there is somebody out there who used to have the same situation to tell me your story.

Just a suggestion, you can apply for LTSVP and after a year apply for apply for PR for her again.

Secondly, when she applied in May she applied under the Spouse Sponsor Scheme? If yes you had your ROM only in Sep-11 then applied in May -11?

Wait for some time (1-1.5 years) and then apply again? Good Luck

You need to look at the dates you've quoted above as they make no sense at all. I'm guessing your ROM was actually Sep-10? If this is the case the most likely reason for rejection is you had only been married for 8 months or so. The general rule is wait until you've been married for at least 2 years before applying for PR. Applying for PR so soon after ROM, especially for wives from certain countries, just sets off alarm bells with the ICA as a "Marriage of Convenience"

Also, MP letter are not a good idea as the ICA don't like MPs meddling in their business.

MP's & Lawyers are both no-no's with ICA. I know! Cost me almost 3 years!

PRship is not a given right although she is married to a local.
Where did you get the notion that once she is married to you, six month down the road , the PR is a guarranteed thing. If you have this notion then you are in for a rude shock.
Be patient, you are licky she is given an LTSVP. Some cases only short term visa.
Wait a little longer.

Is she a China national? Thai? Vietnamese? Flippie?

If yes then there's your answer.

I never seek to cause offence.

But if it occasionally occurs, it's a bi-product of not being willing to live under a tyranny of the hyper-sensitive.

If you think it is then it must be so. Actually, that's not quite true . . .
I didn't mean it in a derogatory manner so I guess that makes you wrong in this case and before you start making comparisons to epithets I doubt many Flippies would find it derogatory . . . my maid doesn't. :)
