Frankly, with all the clarifications, it would seem that it's pretty obvious that both are qualified, and while she is a PRC, she's a professional with a good track record. That, coupled with the husbands background (which will still come up as his FIN and name will be listed on the application) and the fact that He is a MY Chinese, I think they will be one of the ones that is asked for additional information and probably subsequently granted PR. I might be wrong, but it seems to me that they have as good a chance as anybody and just maybe, a better chance than most.

The only drawback is the less than 2 or 3 years here but if they get past that and see the husbands time here, they may well take that into consideration.

Good Luck.

Sad, Sundaymorning,

Our 2nd PR application is rejected within 2 months time. I've yet received the physical letter but in case the letter says "welcome to stay on EP" will it mean it is really the end of the road? I do think so.

Regards,

Yeah, that sucks. It's not a good sign as those letters are pretty final. However, if something major changes, e.g., a male child then I could see maybe making another attempt at it.

hope i can get advise from here

hi, i hope to seek advise from here, i just submitted my PR application this week, but i make 1 silly mistake.! i did not bring my Birth Certificate because i left it in my hometown, so the officer told me to sign a letter indicate the reason i cannot produce the Birth Cert. She said if the ICA require me to produce the Birth Cert then they will notify me.

My Question is, what are the chances my PR application will be rejected because of unable to show my Birth Cert ?

Anyone here that also failed to produce the Birth Cert, and ICA reject your application for this reason ?

You can get a DOB certificate based on your passport from your local embassy here and can submit as an additional document?

Never heard but wouldn't wanna push it either.

ICA is currently weeding out as many applicants as possible. Don't let yourself be part of that statistics. Go and get your birth cert ready at hand ASAP and wait for them to ask for it.

You can voluntarily submit it as an additional missed out document at the Counter

as i understand, i can only make E-appointment for PR submission, since the officer told me that they will contact me again if i were required to produce the Birth Cert

" You can voluntarily submit it as an additional missed out document at the " im not sure if can submit my birth Cert at the counter without making an appointment, and in ica website, there is no link/option to submit missed out document ?

so shall i wait n see until they call ?

You can make an appointment (using the online system) to submit additional documents in support of your PR application. I know because I did that. My advice to you would be to submit the birth certificate proactively rather than wait to be asked for it; it will (IMO) show that you are serious about the application. But it's your call obviously.

To be clear, what you need to do (as with the passport and other certificates, etc. previously) is to take the original birth certificate and two copies to the ICA. The officer will check the original, then give it back to you and chop the copies, initialling them as true copies of an original that has been viewed.
Be careful what you wish for

Yeah, lots of drowning men clutching at straws before being shipping back to their countries of origin, ICA overloaded. Possible that those than cannot be stuffed to make sure original application are complete will be whacked first as possibly they aren't quite as talented as MOM originally thought. :-|

Will depend on the person of course as no application is the same, but I submitted my application at the end of Jan without a birth certificate and signed the letter you mentioned, I was approved at the start of June and got my IC last week. So I doubt they will reject you because of it, but of course no-one can say for certain.

Must have been the MASTERS wot dunnit. :P
But seriously, congratulations!

Clearly the lack of a document and the signing of the aforementioned form is not necessarily the kiss of death for an application. But my point is that if you can bring the document later then it can't do any harm. When we submitted our original PR application, the officer asked to see my wife's educational documents. We explained that they were in storage in Spain and signed a form to explain this. Subsequently we were able to get certificates sent, for which we obtained certified translations. Then we submitted them (or rather copies of them) with some other supporting collateral in a follow-up visit to the ICA.

Would we have (all) been approved for PR anyway if we hadn't taken these additional steps? Maybe, but it might have helped our case, if for no other reason that it showed how seriously we took the application.
Be careful what you wish for
