Still pending Indian PR

Postby Lakku » Fri, 23 Aug 2013 10:33 am

Hi,

Our PR application is pending from 9+ months.
Here is our profile.

We both are working as IT professionals.
Total Income - 137K
Visa - Both are holding EP P2 Pass.
Myself staying here from past 5+ years and my wife for the past 3 years.
We have 2 year old daughter.

Is there any chance that it can be approved.?

In my honest opinion, very slim chance of being approved especially after 9 months

ICA moves in their own strange way. You cannot hurry them. Often, in the past three years, it takes 6 months before anybody even looks at the application because of the sheer numbers of people trying to weasel their way in before the door is well and truly slammed. If one appeals, generally it doesn't go back into the queue in it's old place but to the end of the line and rightly so. So, if one doesn't have patience, one shouldn't bother applying. There is well and truly enough threads on this board that will attest to the length of time it's taking for both rejection and approvals. There is no given.

Each year there are approximately 100k PR applications received by the ICA. My guess is priority is given as follows for processing applications.

1) Spousal PR to Singapore Citizen
2) Spousal PR to PR
3) PTS PR Malaysian/Indo Chinese
4) PTS PR EP P1 family with male children
5) PTS PR EP P1 Others
6) PTS PR All Others

The ICA PR department isn't that big in terms of staff so this is why it can take so long

Or every morning they open a window, wet a finger, stick it out of said window and try to gauge which way the political wind is blowing. :???:
