I've already made comments here that this would be happening. It doesn't surprise me. I think I'd start making plans to immigrate to Australia or Canada.

No, it is not surprising but still kind of... oh-oh, it really starts happening. People from the subcontinent, with low or moderate income, no sons... and some other signs like the said citizenship rejections should probably worry most.

MS has been alluding to this happening toward the 2nd quarter of this year for the past 6 months. They are weeding out the chaff and gonna just keep the wheat I guess. Gonna be a lot of heads rolling. Better watch mine as well! :o

Why? I thought you've been here for aeons already; certainly you're more than a PR by now right? :-s

They may take it against you if they offered you citizenship and you declined.

This would be a double edged sword but probably we will also see it coming.

Such a tendency to cut off the nose to spite the face here...if the original post is true...sounds like a nice, upstanding citizen contributing to the local economy etc etc. I hate to say it OP but are you being picked on because of your race?

Wow. What surprises me is that the OP sounds well established in SG, and yet PR is still being granted to newbies even today. What do some of the latter offer that the former does not, hope they'll do better than the OP?, the prospect of son/s?

I realise that some people abuse the PR system, but it seems cynical for the gubment to grant a family PR, and later revoke it.

Pretty obvious, I'd say.

And yes, Lynx, while I've been here 3 decades I'm still only a PR! They won't offer me citizenship as I'm already at retirement age! (well past it by local reckoning).

I'd feel so sorry for OP. The entire family has been here long enough to establish that they're serious of being here and doing their deed to their host country. They even bought HDB and have own business.

It sounds unfair to me that the only thing ICA counts against OP is really that they have a daughter instead of a son... :o :(

I feel bad, but from my point of view it might not because of not have a son. I just wonder, does previously OP obtain the PR from the Professionals, Techincal Personnel and Skilled Workers? (*covering my face -- please don't throw tomatoes to me :D )

Could it be the point that affecting his REP renewal? Anyone have experience on this case? Apply from the PTS scheme and later on have business and still able to renew REP without issue?

Anyway, as all the senior members here advise (from the other posts I read), just do not exit Singapore then you still a PR.

Yeah, but it's a hell of a way to have to live, not even being able to go to JB or Batam. :-|
