Applying for citizen alone vs family

Post by Se mummy » Sun, 01 Dec 2013 12:59 am

Hi there. Sorry if this has already been asked and answered. However I trawled through 5 pages and couldn't find a similar situation

I plan to apply for citizenship for myself and my 2 children. My husband doesn't want to give up his citizenship and so wants to remain a SPR

My background
SPR 1 year
Malaysian Chinese 37 years old
2 girls (2 and 4 years )
Doctor medical and phd
Working in Singapore general hospital
Salary in excess of 10k
Contract with the hospital for 3 years

What are the chances of applying on my own vs as a family unit. My husband really does not want to give up his Malaysian citizenship for sentimental reasons

Thanks in advance

I'd say probably pretty good. But not by anything I can put a finger on. Everything is good with that one exception being not a family unit. I still think you will be successful. Give it a try. The worst they can do is say no.

Your husbands nationality will have a play... For example if he is Afghan or Pakistan it won't help that he's not joining in but if he's MY and therefore a cousin it's not likely to have much bearing IMHO.

If SPR only 1 year, can attempt to apply for citizenship? I've similar senario like this...

How long ago was that?

Personally, I would say it is an exercise in futility unless you are Malaysian Chinese and even then, wouldn't give it too much chance. My honest opinion. I can blow smoke if you would prefer. :-|

Yes, Malaysian Chinese and intend to apply together with my son who are 1 yr old+. Holding my SPR for 18 months, possible to seek for the application? or advisable to wait at least 2 years SPR status?
