Should apply for Citizenship?

Postby jasbier » Wed, 11 Jan 2012 11:09 pm

Hello Experts,

Thanks for answering the queries for the concern ones.

I came to Singapore in 1993 as DP
Studied Secondary and Poly here
I got my+wife PR in year 2000 after I graduated from Poly, as 1st generation
2 kids(boy & girl) born in Singapore got PR immediately after birth
Worked in Singapore for 2 years
Went overseas as company transfer for 8 years, company paid CPF & Tax while I was oversea
Applied for Citizenship in 2005 - Rejected
3rd Kid (boy) born oversea and now on LTSVP
Applied for 3rd Kid PR Jan 2010 till date no news
Past two months active in community services - 10 hours a month
Been 6 months since I shifted back to Singapore, have a property and just bought a car

so the golden question can I apply for my Citizenship? what will be the chances? any additional requirement?

If you are Malaysian Chinese, very good.

If you are from the subcontinent, well, it's anybody's guess at this point as they are trying to reduce the demographic percentage back to the original traditional 7% or so, and not the current 9~10%. Granted you have two boys, but one wasn't applied for PR at birth. But all that does is increase the demographic percentage as the current TFR here is only 1.3 and you are contributing more than double to the birth rate.

What's the worst they can do? Say no. If they do and you are serious about staying, wait two years after the rejection an then reapply again. Right now it's a crap shoot.

thanks SMS for your valuables ;)

I should have mentioned in my post that I am Indian. May be that is the reason the the gahmen taking more then 1 year to process my kids PR, applied last year Jan.

I think I should wait for some time?
