PR Application via consultancy

Postby Travelwithme » Mon, 26 Aug 2013 4:03 am

Hello,

I had applied PR sometime ago and it was rejected.

I have lived in singapore for 4 years now.

I am planning to re-apply for PR and this time thinking of applying via consultancy Cayman Group Holdings. I saw ad in google regarding this Group and as per them they have success rate of 90%.

Can anyone let me know is there any better chance of getting PR if applied via a consultancy group like Cayman.

Awaiting reply,
Thanks.

The only thing that they can guarantee is a vacuuming of your wallet. There are no agencies that have any type of 'in" with immigration. If anything, due to the ability to apply for PR being so easy, using an agency might actually hurt your chances.

and unless you are going for PR via investment scheme, you still have to turn up at ICA and submit the documents ..

If you think rationally, anything under 100% is all the same for stats like these. Do they show you all the paperwork to prove 90% success rate?

A lot of stats could look impressive if they are historical (when you include years before 2010 when everyone who applied for got a PR, all records look amazing).

Off topic: Hello to all old timers, I was out of country for a few months, traveling to multiple corporate locations in Europe, Asia etc around the little planet earth.

I guess I will pass this time. I just moved up the corporate ladder and have a lot of travel coming up.

Thanks for the invite though. I feel sad about missing it.

Any agency that can guarantee such high success rate is just b**lshit. The exorbitant price they charge does not guarantee you an approval at all, ultimately it still boils down to your individual profile.

Think twice before committing thousands of dollars on no-guarantee returns!

At least, he/she is correct in the last post.
