Strict Policies

Everyday, ICA receives hundreds of applications which means a longer processing time for you, hence the strict policies. Thankully, we know what qualities they're looking for that will help you stand out and improve your application chances.

FAQ

Based on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, the average processing time for any application is about 3 months. However, from our experience, this can delay to as long as 4-6 months, if the required documents are not submitted properly.

Compared to countries like Australia which uses a point-based system to calculate your PR application, in Singapore, your PR approval is at the sole discretion of the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

To make matters worse, the ICA doesn’t justify their reasons for rejection which may leave applicants feeling frustrated despite following their guidelines.

However, Singapore is still open to bringing in new PRs and citizens because of an ageing population. The ICA approval may be stringent but new applicants can take the necessary measures to improve their profile and approval chances.

There are several options when it comes to applying for a Singapore PR. The most assured route is the PTS scheme for foreigners who have worked in Singapore for at least a year along with achieving several other criteria such as proof of long-term interest in the country. To help our applicants with this criteria, we work with different industry specialists to build up your proof of long-term interest.

In most cases, if your application has been pending for more than 3 months, it is likely that ICA is waiting for your profile to improve before they make their decision. In such situations, it is best to speak with one of our consultants as soon as possible.

The Singapore Government carefully calibrates the pace of immigration with each application judged based on its own merit. On average, there are roughly 30,000 PR applications granted every year though this number has dropped in recent years.

This is partly due to the tightening and change of immigration policies to ensure competitive salaries and distribution of skills across sectors after a peak in 2008.

Ideally, you should wait for at least 6 months before submitting another application. However, if you’ve taken significant steps to improve your profile and show a notable change to your situation and long-term interest status, you can re-submit your application earlier. Do speak with our consultants if you’re not sure how to improve your profile.

You’ll need to submit 5 documents:

  1. Digital Passport-Sized Photograph
  2. Valid Travel Documents and Passes
  3. Identification and Profile
  4. Highest Education Certificates
  5. Employment Paperwork

Naturally, this also depends on the type of application you’re applying under.

Yes, you can mail in your appeal or hand deliver a hardcopy to level 5, ICA building. In such situations, do ensure that you’ve improved your profile otherwise you risk lengthening your future application process.

However, we’ve found that by reviewing and improving our client’s profiles, the success rate of a new application is typically higher than most appeal cases.
