An Indonesian family of 4 including 2 children had to wait for 2 years before getting their Singapore PR approved. Consisting of busy professionals working in the finance and political industries, their main challenge is finding the time to prepare for their PR application.
About The Aribowo Family
Mr Aribowo is a banker with one of the most established financial institution in Asia, having spent 4 years there before deciding to apply for his Singapore PR. His wife, is also established, holding a Masters qualification and working in one of the embassies. They have 2 children at the time of application.
As both husband and wife are busy working professionals, they were clear that they wanted to work with a professional that is adept and accommodating in helping them with something they have little, or no knowledge of Singapore immigration policies. After speaking to a few consultancies, he feels the right fit is with IASG because of the honesty and friendliness of the staff he met.
PR Application Challenge: Lack of Time Available, Complex Document Preparation
As with situations where both the adults in the family are busy professionals, working on a tight work schedule is not feasible. Both husband and wife were struggling and unable to fork out time to prepare the documents required for the application. Further, as majority of their documents were in their native language, they were very detached from the actual proper document requirements that would not penalize their application.
The waiting period extended beyond the initial standard 4-6 month wait. In fact, the Aribowos waited a total of 2 years before their results were finalized! In between, there were several requests by ICA, requiring the Aribowos to furnish additional documentation on top of the ones provided as ICA required to perform additional checks.
