Observations of an Immigration Expert 3 Common Challenges
As a Senior Documents specialist doing inbound Singapore immigration work for several years now, I feel it would be beneficial to provide hopeful applicants with some nuggets of information pertaining Singapore PR / Citizenship applications.
Delay due to last-minute document preparation
Often, when preparing application documents packages for clients, my work gets delayed when clients take their own time to prepare their documents. This means that should there be any issues with their documents, more time will be wasted in getting these rectified. This will result in missing the originally planned submission deadline.
Document that are not up to standard
At IASG, we have a well-run and efficient document preparation system that is planned to make clients’ work as easy and hassle free as possible. We plan our client schedules accordingly so that the sufficient reaction time is catered for in the event there are unexpected hurdles faced in obtaining specific documents. Examples would include :
- Documents left behind in their home country
- Documents that has faded over time,
- Documents which require professional translations and notarization to meet ICA’s standards
It is imperative that these document reviews be done on time so that clients can submit a smooth application and will not face immediate rejection by ICA due to insufficient or improper documenting. So what should you do? How do you ensure that your application does not go to waste?
Many of my customers, like yourselves, were in this situation as well, and those that took the plunge to engage in a professional, or at least take the time to speak with one, have never looked back. The reviews and testimonials we receive is proof in itself on the level of attention and professionalism we put into each application.
The Singapore PR selection process is not as transparent compared with other countries and this makes it difficult for applicants to understand what the government is looking for in a good PR candidate.
