Advice or suggestion on applying PR

Post by dbashyam » Sun, 01 Jul 2012 2:52 pm

Dear Friends,

I am thinking of applying for a PR this year Sep or Oct 2012. I earlier on applied on August 31st 2010 and I got rejected within 2 months. The reason cited was "we regret to inform you that your application for PR has been rejected but you can continue to live with your EP" and no specific dates were given.

My pass is P2.

Details about my family:

Myself, wife and two sons. I came to Singapore on 13 October 2009. Plan to settle down here.

I paid tax on 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 I did not get tax for 2009-2010, IRAS said I need not pay for that year.

So can anyone suggest me should I apply or wait for somemore time.

Thanks for any response.

Don't waste your time. ICA has determined you and your family are not what they want in Singapore other than as hired help. When you get the "you are welcome to stay and work on your EP" it means there is no way you are going to get PR. I would suggest you look at Australia or Canada as it's not going to happen here. I would also suggest that you make exit plans as well as there is no guarantee that your EP will even be renewed when renewal time come up. It's pretty crappy, but the government has let itself in for a bind and those who are not citizens are the ones who are going to pay the ultimate price.

Sorry to hear that pal but that fateful line has come up in your rejection letter. I can only concur with SMS on your next few steps...
