ICA - Can be fast some times.

Moving to Singapore? Ask our regular expats in Singapore questions on relocation and their experience here. Ask about banking, employment pass, insurance, visa, work permit, citizenship or immigration issues.

ICA - Can be fast some times.

Post by MrBear » Wed, 11 Jul 2012 11:51 am

I thought I would share with you all a good news story from out of the ICA.

One of my co-workers received his IPA letter last week.

Total time of waiting was 10 weeks

From USA
P1 with a 10K > 15K Monthly take home (Guessed amount)
Wife + two teenage boys.
Various MBA's behind his name.

Some people get all the lucky

:wink:

Is this for PR or Citizenship?

Dumb question I know, but what makes the children 2nd Gen PRs? They are being granted PR in their own rights at the same time as their parents, not born to parents who were earlier granted PR.

Or are any male children who apply for PR on the hook?

It primarily applies to children of persons granted PR under the PTS scheme and not the family ties scheme. Family ties will have one parent already a SC so the odds are that they will already have Singapore Citizenship. On the other hand, the children of persons granted PR due to Professional/Technical Scheme, will not have dual citizenship so they inherit the liability due to being 2nd generation. This is why a lot of PRs try to get only LTVPs for their children. Of course, the ruse is up now and ICA is wise so if you have a male child on LTVP instead of PR the odds are you won't get an REP. If you are applying for PR and you don't include male children on the primary application, they odds are against you getting PR as well.

Who knows? It's all about making choices and I don't think we know enough to speculate even between the lines. I can imagine dozens of more or less likely scenarios where his kids were not so happy after the family had to leave Singapore.

I've seen more than a few caucasian kids in NS uniforms out and about in Singapore.
