One of the saddest things that can happen to the life of an immigrant in Singapore is finding out that his PR status application is rejected. It can be a signal that his dream of permanently living in the country is gone completely. It can also be disheartening to find out that the Immigration and Checkpoint Authority has denied the issuance of a blue pass due to a mere technicality. In case the same thing happens to you, do not worry because you can still do some things to make it right.
In this article, we will discuss how you can deal with PR application rejected. It may be sad that it happened to you but worrying about it for a long time will not do you any good. Instead, follow our guidelines below to be able to move on from this unfortunate event and eventually get the approval you want.
First of all, there is a necessity to understand what are the probably reasons for the denial of your application. Take note that the government of Singapore became stricter in the issuance of the blue pass to immigrants. Singapore started to tighten the criteria and requirements for applications for a permanent residency status. The reason behind this is to manage the inflow of the foreigners in the country. They want to control who among the aliens can live in the Singapore.
Now, you are probably thinking of the different things that you can do to deal with your problem. You can consider submitting an application again. However, this time, you need to be sure that you have already acquired the qualifications mandated by the Immigration and Checkpoint Authority. At the same time, you must be able to meet the criteria so that the application will be granted. For example. If you lack the required number of months of stay in Singapore, then make sure that when you file an appeal, you already have completed the minimum requirement.
Always remember that appeals must not be filed immediately after the Immigration and Checkpoint Authority issued the order or rejection. Look at the period indicated in the letter. It is important that you wait for that period before submitting an appeal. Otherwise, there is a high chance that your application will be rejected again. For sure, this is something that you do not want to happen so be patient and wait for the expiration of the period. On the other hand, if there is no period indicated on the rejection letter, then all you need to do is to wait for six months. Thereafter, you can again apply Singapore PR.
All these can be quite challenging on your part. If you really want to fast track the appeal and ensure a high chance of approval then hire an expert to help you in the process. An expert’s advice will enable you to gain more confidence during the application. This professional expert can even prepare all the necessary documents that you have to submit to the ICA. He can also help you in preparing for the interview that will be conducted by an ICA agent. Such interview is a mandatory requirement for the issuance of a blue pass. The fees for the expert may be high but it will be definitely worth the pay.
