Case Study 1
In the final quarter of 2020, we received an approval for a Permanent Resident application. The couple who applied were both aged (the wife is 58 years old, and her husband is 80). She is a Spanish national, and her husband is a Canadian national of Indian descent. Her husband and herself both held good positions in terms of employment in local educational institutions but during the course of their application, her husband’s contract with his employers ceased.
With a mix of exotic nationality, being an aged couple, as well as experiencing a loss of employment, this case posed various challenges. The couple had already applied once before and received a rejection outcome. When they employed the help of IASG in their second time applying for their PR status, they faced rejection again.
Nonetheless, IASG re-examined their case against current immigration trends, and represented them in their appeal. This involved analysing the government’s renewed industry outlook, the narrative change focusing on recovery from Covid-19 and future industries. Situating the couple’s appeal within industry analyses allowed them to then get their approval to be Permanent Residents in Singapore.
