Since the implementation of ICA's e-PR Submission on 18 December 2017, many applicants have expressed their concern on the limitations brought about through their online submission experience. While the online form is time consuming to navigate, applicants are also concern on the inability to express the full extent of their profile now that they are unable to upload their additional supporting documents.
We are at the end of the first week since the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) launch of the new e-PR submission system for Singapore PR Applications. With this, Immigration@SG (IASG) has been receiving increased enquiries from individuals to help them negotiate this transition smoothly.
At the close of the first week of ICA's newly implemented ePR Submission system, we notice increased enquiries and comments from potential clients and members of the public pertaining the challenges they face. Largely negative in nature, we can empathise with them on the matter. What used to be a more traditional method of physical form submission has now gave way to a purely online-based process. And this comes with a few unnerving points on top what public feels is a hefty $100 per applicant submission fees.
A letter from your MP will provide you with a little help in getting your PR application approved. This is because such letters are merely general in nature and does not indicate your key strengths as a candidate for PR. Further, in order to get a letter from your MP, you must be active in taking part and organizing activities in your neighbourhood for some time as part of the social and community integration.
We cannot guarantee 100% PR approvals since we do not have direct control over the Singapore Government’s and ICA decision making. In fact, no agencies or business should be so bold to be giving you such guarantees as it, after all, not true.
