Policies that was in placed was prior to GE. In fact it was in 2007 that the imbalances was first noticed in many facet of the society.
After GE , the policy was already kicking in but with a little twist. Greater speed and urgency
Arm chair Damagers of the Gahmen were the cause of this catastrophic problems. Many have gone due to the backlashes when they buried themselves in the sand
From previous observation it will another year before the storm will subside.

Meditate you must with great length
The levitation skill you must acquire
Only then the force will be with you


Agreed except I think the island is actually hitting some actual population limits which means the restrictions may stay.

That, my friend is the reason for your rejection, it took you 4 yrs to decide, but for ica it's a matter of when we invited you you ditched us, now we ditch you.


I did expect someone to jump at this conclusion.. :lol: but my gripe was a pure admission of guilt on my part in retrospective rather than anything else :) I have tons of batch-mates who misplaced their letters let alone respond to it and yet have converted a PR - only difference being the timing of their app, theirs being before the housing policy change & the gold rush.



Update: My theory of 6 months "auto-rejection" seems to be gaining weight. Just got my rejection letter.. dated 17-Aug. Date of application: 17-Feb.. exactly half a year before! No mention of "waiting" period though.


There you go! You yourself have hinted about the ABSS there, your timing of application was also almost exactly after it was announced. Probably in their eyes, every well paid applicant( especially from the ahem.. ahem... race)who didn't bother to apply earlier are looked upon as potential ABSS abusers. The other poster with 180k+ annual salary perfectly fits this category.

Pardon me for intruding, but how does a PR with a US-Citizen non-PR wife have two Singaporean children? My first guess would be adopted, but then does the gahmen let non-SC adopt SC children?

when I was granted PR a few years back, my salary is only $2400, it is crazy that people earning 180K refused PR, can't imagine they tighten that much, now I fear about renewing the PR in a few years

lolipop99, you don't renew PR, you only renew the Reentry Permit. If they do not renew the reentry permit, as long as you do not leave Singapore you can still stay here as a PR, but the first time you leave, THEN you lose it.

Yes - the Singapore government (MCYS and Family Court) happily allow non Singaporeans to adopt SC children. It's more common than people realize. Up to 450 kids are adopted out every year and you know very few Singaporeans can afford to take on more. My first child was natural born to my first wife (a SC).

technically without a reentry permit i am not even allowed to take a trip to jb or batam, that sucks!! but it's life! i should have applied for SC 1 year after getting PR when things was still not tighten yet, lots of filliino and burmese i know did that and they succeeded! it all depends on luck anyway, this world is all by luck only

Maybe your children can apply for PR on behalf of your wife as a family tie? I'm guessing it's at least a situation ICA doesn't have a flowchart for ;) Also perhaps your new wife is cursed in ICA's eyes since you used to have a SC wife and now not?
