What Should I Do If My PR Application is Rejected?

If you are applying for a Singapore PR and got rejected, don’t fret! There are a few things you can do in order to improve your chances of success in your next application.

First and foremost, check the reason for rejection and make sure that you meet all the eligibility requirements for the desired PR scheme. Applying for the right scheme is important as it will increase your chances of getting your application approved.

Next, be sure to attach all the required documents and write complete and consistent details in the form. Incomplete applications or those with unclear scanned copies of documents are often rejected outright.

Finally, make sure to adhere to deadlines. Applying for Singapore PR late will often automatically be rejected, so be sure to submit yours on time.

What are the fees to applying Singapore PR?

You’ll need to pay a processing fee of S$100, which is non-refundable per PR applicant at the time of submission. You will not get refunded this application fee if your application is rejected.

How can I increase my chances of approval?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer, but here are some general tips:

  1. Make sure you are eligible for the scheme you are applying under
  2. Complete all the required documents and provide accurate and up-to-date information
  3. Make sure your application is error-free
  4. Appear for interviews or tests (if required) and be prepared to answer questions truthfully and confidently
  5. Demonstrate that you have strong ties to Singapore, e.g. by having a stable job, owning property, or having family members who are Singapore citizens or PRs
  6. Comply with all conditions of your current visa status, e.g. by not overstaying or working without a valid work pass
  7. Be of good character and not have a criminal record
  8. Not be on any blacklist, such as the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority’s Watchlist or the Central Provident Fund Board’s Dormant Accounts List

Following these tips does not guarantee approval, but it may improve your chances. Ultimately, the decision lies with the authorities and is based on their assessment of your application.
