Citizenship - Our Approach to Successful Citizenship Applications

    Citizenship Applications


    Unlike Singapore PR Applications, the reviewing criteria for Singapore Citizenship undergoes additional scrutiny. Being a small country, the Government is even more selective with applicants for consideration due to a slew of economic and social factors. While locals take Singapore Citizenship for granted, there are many hopefuls who now realize that Singapore Citizenship can be notoriously difficult to obtain. This is especially so for Permanent Resident spouses of Singaporean citizens as there is no guarantee of them receiving citizenship themselves.

    We meet many applicants who have tried to attain Citizenship status on their own but failed and rejection can be for different reasons like incomplete forms, insufficient documents, and weak profiles and so on. ICA does not disclose the reason for rejection and we understand that this can be quite frustrating for you.

    We at IASG leverage on the expert knowledge of former policy-makers and / or highly experienced members within the team to provide assistance with your Singapore citizenship application to enhance your chances of success as well minimize your hassle in preparing the documents amidst your hectic work schedule.

    A typical application timeline for a citizenship application is as follows :


    1) During the Consultation phase, we will be conducting:
    • A Thorough Initial Profile Assessment
    • In-Person Advisory Session
    • Profile Strengthening Insights
    • Advise on Any Changes in Policy

    Each of these are paramount in building up the base of your application so that we can formulate the next step of any necessary preparation to ensure that you have a robust documents package.


    2) Service Initiation

    Once you have decided to work with IASG on your application, we will commence on your case and inform you on both the timeline as well as any important information needed to complete and enhance your documents package.

    3) Documents Collation & Review / Documents Preparation

    This forms the crux of the tangible work that IASG does for all our clients. We utilize dedicated and experienced specialists for each case to analyse and prepare the necessary documentation needed for a solid, error-free documents package that is aligned to existing government policies.  At this stage, we will work closely with you to ensure that all your documents meet the specifications set by the government.

    We will :

    • Plan Each Case according to Individual Profile
    • Conduct an Exhaustive Documents Review before Submission
    • Handle All Documentation Processes

    4) Documents Handover & Submission
    Once all the preparations are done, the document specialist assigned will go through the package in detail to make sure that the information given is as accurate as possible. This includes the application forms, along with all mandatory and supporting documents that we will be including in the submission.

    At this stage, we will also brief the clients on latest policies, industry trends that might affect their application. Only after clients are satisfied and the documentation is complete would their cases progress to the actual submission via ICA’s e-SS (e-Service Submission).
    5) Post-Submission / Post-Outcome Advisory
    As immigration specialists, we live up to our guarantee of completely guiding you through your journey from start to end. Even after the submission of your application, we will continue to provide professional advice and insights. Should there be additional requirements requested from ICA or any of the government bodies, even while your application is still undergoing review, we would be committed to assist. We will also list out to all our clients any important documents that requires prompt update to ICA while in the midst of review.
    Once the results is known, if it is a positive one, we will be working with you on the approval formalities set out by ICA. These need to be completed promptly and accurately before you are able to officially attain your Citizenship status. Should any extensions be required, we will be also be available to assist you.
    For any applications that are unsuccessful, we will work closely with the clients to analyse any possible reasons for the rejection before deciding on whether an appeal would be of benefit to the client. Should your existing profile form a strong appeal, we will work with you to strategize the best possible approach to proceed.
