Singapore citizenship rejected. Shall I appeal?

Postby Olympic2012 » Wed, 10 Oct 2012 3:13 pm

Hi

I have been living in Singapore sice 8.5 years and both my kids were born here. We are PR since 6.5 years and my daughter goes to local school. My wife is doing PV in the same school since last 2.5 years and she is a home maker.
I am working with a Financial Company for last 5+ years and earn 5 digit monthly salary.
My current nationality is Indian and I had applied for Singapore citizenship for whole family of 4 and it was rejected. Does it make sense to appeal? I didn't include any cover letter and references with my original application and only submitted what was required in the checklist.
Your wise advise will be very helpful in making the tough decision.

Regards

Why have you posted the same question on 2 seperate threads with 2 different user names? How many user names do you have?

Not enough information to give an opinion on your citizenship application, were there any comments on the rejection letter? The fact your wife doesn't work might be an issue, but I'm just guessing
I HAVE MASTERS!

when did you apply and how long did they response? My colleague from Malaysia (chinese) just got an approval letter in principle

No reason given for the rejection. I applied in April and got the letter early this week.

It simply means that Singapore do not find that you and your family is a good fit for the society here, if you lose the jobs in the future and no longer be of any help for Singapore, you are welcome to go home. If you read the posts here or elsewhere online you will see that appeal is no use at all, and people from certain geographic locations and cultural backgrounds are rarely approved for pr and citizenship lately, supposedly because the government do not see that they have the intention or ability to uproot and integrate to the society in singapore nor do they contribute to diversity here

Find another country to migrate to and deprive Singapore of your contributions. i.e. Protest with your feet.

Frankly, Singapore won't give a $#!+.

But I agree, in the sense that, instead of going through the agony, just make back-up plans.

Oh horseshit. How many bloody indians are killed and stabbed and butchered and raped every day in India by their own race? Remove the log from your eye before you bother with the sliver in my countrymen's eye.

People, are you all missing something or am I the only who is missing something? sensei_ is obviously saying that with a tongue-in-cheek, and you guys are already antagonising each other.

From what I recall said Indian student who was stabbed was walking through a bad part of the city with his expensive electronics visible. So, ordinary street crime was blown out of proportion into racist attacks.

I have no problem with _sensei. If lolllipop wants to spout off uneducated statistics and slander about my home country he/she better be prepared to back them up.
