8 Errors to Avoid with the PR Application Form
8 Errors to Avoid with the PR Application Form
The highly coveted Singapore Permanent Resident status is the golden ticket to a plethora of benefits, such as subsidised medical costs, safe infrastructure, clean environment, premium education, and stable economy. The route to achieving it, though, is not a bed of roses.
By no means would you want to have your application rejected by the officials, so it is highly vital for it to be error-free. ICA runs through thousands of applications per year and only picks out the cream of the crop to be granted the PR status. Even if your profile is of great potential, you face the risk of getting rejected if you miss out any details. You will then have to wait for the next six months before reapplying.
Mistakes are bound to happen. So, have an experienced specialist from an immigration consultancy firm with a good track record to run through your completed form. They will be able to spot mistakes and provide expert tips whilst reviewing your application using a strategic approach to success. Read on to learn more.
Every incorrect detail — letter or numeral — may gravely affect your entire submission by communicating an inaccurate representation of yourself. A specialist can guide you through the submission, ensuring that you complete each section on the e-PR system accurately. Rest assured, every information that you need to submit to the ICA will be thoroughly vetted along the way.
Ignoring sections if they do not apply to you is not acceptable. With no face-to-face meetup initially, officials would regard the information provided insufficient or incomplete, which may lead to non-acceptance of your application. An expert can inform you on what should be indicated for all the relevant fields so that your application is submitted in its best form.
Without digitising your documents beforehand, you will not be able to upload them efficiently. You will end up spending your time making soft copies of the documents instead of completing the form during the application window. The advice of a specialist on the do’s and don’ts to ensure that you spend your time completing your form effectively will be greatly helpful.
If you do not have your non-English records translated or your supporting documents from your embassy, schools or employers, your application may not be accepted. A professional has a neat checklist to keep track of the essential documents so you leave none behind.
Do not feel urged to submit more than necessary documents, without sticking to your given list of supporting documents. Documents that are irrelevant to your application will not play any part in the approval process. Be guided by a specialist who will highlight to you if a record is or is not required by the officials so that you do not waste your time hunting for them.
Without a cover letter, your application will not highlight your professional achievements, personal achievements, employment history or charitable contributions to the officials. Paul Immigrations has an excellent team of writers to create one just for you.
You would have to restart the entire online application again if you miss the allocated time limit of seven days or 168 hours. Such a circumstance can be avoided by speaking to a professional who will help to streamline the whole process for you. This way, you will be ready to submit the form on time and also have time to review the information to avoid errors.
Not engaging a professional can be the worst decision of your journey. The support given by one is highly advantageous. Having run through thousands of applications, professionals possess the experience from helping other applicants. Even a small mistake is not worth making because the ICA officials do not have the time to give leeways.
Depending on your application scheme, you are required to collate a number of essential documents. However, gathering and organising them can take up a considerable amount of your time. Our experts at Paul Immigrations are skilled to handle high volumes of documents systematically so that you are able to do your submission well-prepared.
