Apply Singapore citizenship

Postby Rams-school » Sun, 16 Sep 2012 9:28 pm

Hello

I am new to this forum while searching for Citizenship I found this community forum and lots of constructive discussion. Thanks and keep it up.

I have been a PR for 17 years and living in Singapore for approx. 20 years.

I started with a technician (Poly Diploma) from India and upgraded my skills in Singapore by attending Advanced diploma in Poly, Post graduate diploma in NUS, Post graduate certificate from NTU, Bachelors degree from Australian University(Part time while working in Singapore through a Private provider)

I work for a same MNC for the past 15 years.
My Annual Salary is approx S$65K monthly salary is approx S$5.3K per month. My wife earns approx S$1K per month.

She has just started her own startup company (Pte Ltd) couple of months. Her earning is not great but potential possibility to grow the business. She had a proprietary business for the past 3 years and the earning too approx S$15K per year.


I own a HDB 4 room flat married with 1 female kid( teen age). Born overseas in India but all along studied here. Academically my kid (female) is doing good in one of the top(10) secondary school.

I did not apply for citizenship till now due to my family property inheritance. Now all settled and I want to apply.

I am an Indian citizen speak Tamil. and My wife too speak tamil from India. My wife is a PR for approx. 15 years, My kid is a PR for 14 years I am a PR for 17 years.

Am I eligible to apply and what is the possibility getting citizenship?

Request you to share your opinion. Appreciate your help.

I am regularly contributing to CPF from my MNC company.

Thanks

:)

Probably very good, even with the current climate. 20 years here kinda shows a desire of permanency I would think. God for it. I don't think anybody would know the difference by now anyway. ;-)

Good Luck.

There is some noise that the govt is always over-concerned about numbers (or meritocracy) .. and don't bother much about the desire of the people to make themselves citizens . . not that it matters much, because there is no way to quantify a person's desire to be firmly entrenched here .. (it was brought up at the PM's conversation too .. )

Well, if the govt is hearing it out .. maybe they will take note of those who have been here long at a lower pay, and get a one-up for PR/Citizenship, vs those who are here with a higher pay .. but have no long term plans to park themselves here .. but easily qualify .. ;)

I think there is nothing more you can do, so might as well apply now. If you get it you get it, if you don't you don't. There is no need to wait because everything relating to time periods, has already been achieved by you in excess...

Just based on what I see and based on my opinion, you have more than a decent chance as you have resided here long enough and have also contributed. You may wish to go ahead and apply directly.Good Luck !
