Appeal Letter To ICA For PR Rejection – Advice

Many people who submit a Singapore PR application get a rejection letter by Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority ICA, particularly for first timers.

Perhaps like them, you may have tried to appeal, and unfortunately got your appeal rejected too.

Reasons are plentiful, and can range from missing supporting documents, incomplete forms, weak identity profiles or more. ICA website also does not provide any reason for the people getting rejected, and this can be frustrating for you.

There are usually only two options for you.

Appeal letter to ICA for rejection decision overturn

The first step or option will be to actually write and submit an appeal letter to ICA website regarding this matter within 2 months of the rejection date. Appeal is actually the common route that is taken by most people as there is minimal waiting time for you as well. Some people ask us for the example or sample appeal letter template, but we strongly do not recommend that. Such a example or sample for appeal is unlikely useful in itself. This is because ICA does not necessarily approve appeal letters lightly as well for immigration.  This means that unless your case was a simple situation of having left out one crucial document in the initial process, chances are you need to demonstrate clear and significant progress in terms of your profile in order for them to accept the appeal letter.

Going for an appeal is usually ideal if you had only missed out perhaps one or maximum two documents during your initial application. However, if yours was a case of weak qualifications or profile in the eyes of ICA, then re submitting instead of trying to appeal is the smarter decision for you.

Re apply 6 months or more later

The second option will be to re submit again for approval. This is the recommended route if your profile is weak and is most likely the reason and cause for getting rejected. This is because usually anything short of a significant improvement in your submission or appeal will result in the same.

However, how long must you wait before you can try for PR again after? The quick answer is that you can submit it 6 months or more after the initial date stated. However, you definitely do not want to keep submitting and keep getting rejected over and over again. For instance, you definitely should not change job or company in the interim time unless it is to a significantly higher salary position at a prestigious company. Everything you do in between now and re applying has to be about improving your profile.

We can advise you on your success before you make any moves on appeal as there can be other factors, so that you stand the highest chances of approval of becoming a resident in Singapore.
