4 Reasons to Engage a PR Application Service
4 Reasons to Engage a PR Application Service
With only an approximate of 30,000 applicants successfully being granted Permanent Resident (PR) status in Singapore each year, the PR application process is one that should not be taken lightly. Any mistakes or inaccurate information in your application can lead to a rejection, forcing you to invest even more of your time and effort to submit an appeal.
This is why engaging the services of an immigration consultancy can be extremely helpful, rather than attempting to prepare your submission on your own. The expertise and guidance you would receive from a professional service can be the difference between a successful and rejected application. Read on to find out more on how an immigration consultancy will be able to help when you are applying for permanent residency.
There are several steps to the entire Singapore PR application process, one of which is completing the application form on the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority’s (ICA) online portal, the electronic Permanent Residence (e-PR) system. There are different sections that need to be completed in the form, which can be tedious to handle on your own. Accidentally keying in the wrong information or missing out on a section are entirely plausible, which can then cost you the chance of acquiring PR status.
To prevent this from happening, it is wise to have a professional who is familiar with the e-PR system and is able to help you navigate through the process seamlessly.
The path to acquiring permanent residency in Singapore is a competitive one, and finding ways to set yourself apart from the other applicants is crucial in increasing your approval chances. However, how do you do this effectively without the expertise of a professional who has the knowledge of what ICA is looking for in a potential PR?
With their industry expertise, an immigration specialist will be able to assess your individual situation and advise you on how you can make yourself stand out.
Another way to increase your chances of gaining permanent residency in Singapore is to identify your areas of strength. This can include the economic contributions you have made while working in the country, or your active involvement in the local community.
An immigration specialist will be able to help you identify these positive aspects of yourself and highlight them in the form of a cover letter, eliminating the need for you to draft this letter on your own.
Once you have started with your application on the e-PR system, you will be required to submit it within the next seven days, or 168 hours. If you fail to make your submission within this time frame, you will have to start afresh from the very beginning, rendering the time you spent on the first round a waste.
However, with a immigration specialist’s guidance, this entire process can be planned and organised to ensure that the different tasks that need to be done gets completed on time. This will ensure no task is left unchecked and every single aspect of your submission is completed with accuracy.

For instance, at Paul Immigrations, our team of specialists will first assess your PR eligibility to estimate your approval chances.

Next, we will help you compile all of your supporting documents to be uploaded on the e-PR system. In addition, we will advise you on any additional paperwork that might help boost the success rate of your submission.
