didnt receive PR rejection letter

Postby bigbang02 » Mon, 21 May 2012 11:57 pm

Hi, I've been in singapore for 6 years. 4 years study in an institute (im degree holder now) and 2 years working in an MNC (holding EP).

I've applied for PR last year (but i didnt submit the tax form) and got rejected but the they might have sent mail to my old address. I've asked the people staying there if they've got my mail but nobody did (or they lost it...) so I dont know when I should applied for PR again (now I have got a total of 2 tax letters). How do I check when I can applied again for PR? Any ideas?

Not submitting a form that was required at the time was a bad move - attention to detail is all-important. Actually, sending the tax return is no longer required (as of very recently) because MOM will now just get the info they need from IRAS. But that wasn't the case last year.

If you want to definitively confirm the status of your last PR application you can do that via the ienquiry service on the MOM website:

https://ienquiry.ica.gov.sg/index.do

IMO, the sensible thing for PR applicants to do is to periodically check that site while waiting for the outcome, and not replying totally on the postal service.

If I were in your position, after checking the status online I'd make a visit to the ICA to discuss the situation face to face. Fundamentally there need to be significant (positive) differences in your circumstances before you apply again, otherwise you are likely to be viewed as wasting the MOM's time (not a wise move).

I'd also suggest waiting for more input from the real experts in this area (Mad Scientist, sundaymorningstaple, etc.).
Be careful what you wish for

I checked my status. It's rejected. But I heard u need to wait a period of time as mentioned in the rejection letter. My salary increased. My payslips in last few months around 4.5k ( with bonus). I still stay in the same company.

I do not think the tax return is an issue. Holistically ICA will look at many factors. If it rejected and not told when to reapply means you are not wanted as a PR hence you are called a transient worker

I just got my rejection letter. "You may wish to re-submit another application for our consideration in 6 months' time."

That is good news. That means you are welcome to stay AND once you have reached their internal parameters, they will reconsider their decision.

So, my question would be how long have you been here? Or if filing for a family, how long have you been married? Or some other variable that has been suggested/published that you didn't meet at the time you filed, but filed anyway......

Nak, I think you mis-read his posts. He's answering my questions. Just sounds like they want him to stay for at least a year before giving it to him. Yeah, he ticks the right boxes for sure but 6 months just too soon, even if Malaysian Chinese, married & boy child!

Return to my question. I DIDN'T get the mail because it's send to the wrong address. Who or how or which number can I contact for reprint or for clarification ?

What clarification? They do not give the reasons for rejection on the notice of rejection. You could always go to ICA and ask. There's an original thought!!!!!

The onus in on you to update ICA. In any case, the website is another way to check for rejection and approval.
There is no need to reprint or readdress. All you need to do is print the one from the website.
Why do you want a reprint from ICA? To frame it up on the wall, issit?

Thanks for the advice. We intend to set our root in Singapore and will apply for citizenship in the future. Hopefully the pr application result in 6 months time would be favorable.

Malaysian Chinese and Singapore are a match made in heaven. Your PR approval was inevitable. Congratulations :)
