Singapore Citizenship Chances

Postby livehappily4evr » Mon, 28 Jan 2013 9:41 pm

Hi All,

I am Singapore PR Since 2002. I applied for Citizenship almost 1.5 years ago and got response as rejected after 8 months. I re appealed and the result was still the same.

Basically the details of myself are as follows

1. Singapore PR Still 2002
2. Married, Wife Got PR last year. Cannot apply Citizenship together as still not yet completed minimum period.
3. Parents & Siblings are Citizens since 6 Years
4. Faithfully Staying in Singapore for almost 9 years paying CPF and Tax without fail
5. Working in IT Sector & Earning 100k & above per year including perks
6. From Indian Sub continent
7. Own a HDB, Economically Stable & No records of Criminal or Bankruptcy

I am planning to re-apply soon. Is it a wise choice to re apply at this time.

Is it possible to talk to MP and get Support ? If yes what is the procedure ?

What are the other possible ways to become a Singapore Citizen ?

What could be the perspective of ICA in not giving me Citizenship even though i have all the good profile like Singapore Family Nucleus, Married, economically Stable ?

Please help me :)

Without wishing to be over-simplistic, I think you may have your answer right there TBH.
Be careful what you wish for

I wouldn't even attempt it until your wife has been here long enough so you can all apply together as a family. You're not going to get citizenship without your whole family being in on it.

And honestly, as an Indian, you still may not get it anyway for quite a while, if ever.

Indian resident population in Singapore has increase from 7.9% (2000) to 9.2%(2010)
That is all time high.

Why the rush to get it? Just wait until your application has more merit.

Will meeting MP and telling my issue will help ? I am clueless and dont know what to do pls help me.

today saw an article in asia one, is it a good sign for people who are expecting citizenship

the crux of the news from asia one is

Maintaining a strong Singaporean core

Besides new pro-family measures announced last week, the Paper proposes to continue taking in around 30,000 new permanent residents (PRs) every year, which will keep the PR population stable at 500,000 to 600,000.

From this pool, the country will take in between 15,000 and 25,000 new citizens annually to keep its citizen population from shrinking, assuming the total fertility rate stays at its current 1.2.

Tell you what. Keep reading the papers for the next two weeks to see the backlash from the Singaporean public. Even if they were to implement this (It's only a white paper by the way) it probably wouldn't happen until after the next GE in 2016 because if they implement it now, they will lose the election for sure. They still might even though this is only a white paper. But you can be assured that they will use the current opportunity to weed out the non-desirable PRs currently in the system. e.g., the abusers and borderline PRs who probably really shouldn't have been given PR in the first place.
