I know what you mean , no one actually wants to send in 2 applications.But throughout this forum we have people talk about randomness of applications being approved or rejected. So this is a chance an individual can take for the authorities to have another look at the application
If it is rejected for this reason , then I cant really say much.

Any difference if one is Indian race, but of a different nationality. e.g. born and brought up in UK or US, with no links whatsoever to India?

There is no such thing. Unless you are talking about the American Red Indian.

I think you will be viewed slightly more favorably. But still you will fall in the "Indian" quota is my guess.

The chances dont go up or down, daily. Its all in your mind. If it has to get approved, it will, even if it takes 12 months. If not, then, it could still take 12 months.

^^This.

Time since application does not seem to have any correlation to the approval/rejection rates. Just some take longer to process. A lot has to do with the huge numbers that are being submitted. The applications, as far as we can guess are being taken in order of application. However, the processing times vary with the amount of documentation required to be verified by their vetting teams in those respective countries. This can take time as some universities and such either are not computerized thus the hunt for school records/birth certificates etc. can take a substantial amount of time. Additionally, if your country is famous for "grease" is could take a long time as well, at the vetting team do not pay grease so your own alma mater could be the reason for the hold up. It's all part of the vetting process.

Oh the irony of a Indian Masters holder being held up because his alma mater is not being bribed to verify his credentials!!!! Made me smile (I'm in the middle of bid negotiations in India as we speak).

Agree with sms , with Alma Mater taking time to get back with information. Though India might not be as efficient as here , it is not true that all the universities would require " greasing" for the information specially those that are in the Singapore approved list of universities in India. Good Luck with your negotiation in India.... It might be so be bad after all... :)

Hi All,

Just wanted to informm everyone the PR application for both me and my wife was rejected . The wait was almost for 8 months.
However , I am yet to receive any letter from them which says tells whether we should apply after X years or not.( We checked it on the website).

I think the following might have gone wrong with our application

a) My length of stay : 2 years , 3 months at the time of application

b) Wife's length of stay : 5 years ( Guess this should nto be a problem)

b) I changed my job after I had applied ,( though I submitted my new details to ICA immediately)
c) No kids

Looking forward to your suggestions

Thanks for all the help and suggestions

Bad Taste?

Fat Waist?

Lace underpants?
