How did he open a company before obtaining PR?
I thought you need to have a PR to register a company or maybe .....
Do let us know of the outcome, and also your profile.
9 months into the application, if they are asking for documents after seeing your profile, I'd assume you have a good chance. Else, they could have just sent a rejection letter (they don't have the docs, but you'd have provided your + your spouse's details to them anyway).
Though the veterans here may think I'm being too optimistic, a lil bit of hope doesn't hurt anyone :) .
No, at least I don't think you are being too optimistic, I think you don't have a clue what you are saying and you definitely haven't done any research on this board either or you wouldn't have made such a statement. :roll:
Just to let you know that the proceed to upload button disappeared on the 23rd of September. Fingers .....
Slight deviation - what was it like to renounce your Indian citizenship? (Rough process and timelines)
Its a very very easy process, thanks to COVID.
You first setup an appointment online on BLS website (https://blsindia.sg/) - they have 2 offices, one in Little India, the other in International plaza. You can set up an appointment 5 days in advance, and just like ICA, appointments dry up immediately after they are released (they are released about 10am every day).
The appointment is critical because when I went to International plaza, there was a snaking queue with about 40 people in line. I learnt later that most of them were walk-ins. But because I had an appointment I skipped the queue.
After setting up the appointment, go to the Indian passport website to fill up the application form (https://embassy.passportindia.gov.in/), and then print .....
^ One of my gaming friends from India mentioned that the dialect changes every few miles in India. She said she attended a wedding where the groom was from village A but bride was from village B and a translator was needed for the ceremony. The only common language spoken between both families was English.
It's true. Especially in the vast rural areas, about a 30 to 60 minutes drive away, they could be speaking a different dialect which sometimes is not mutually intelligible with dialects of the neighboring regions.
Would you say that most people in India speak English now? I wouldn't expect those in rural areas to, but in cases like this, where they don't speak the same language, how does anyone communicate?
Definitely, there are many parts of India where English isn't .....
No way local will give him a chance to lead government.
Those old enough will not forget what he did to Mr Chiam See Tong.
May be new citizen will give him the vote.
His party SDP have 3 MP seat before 1997 election.
After he try to expel Mr Chaim to force him to vacate his MP seat.
During 1997 election, his party lost all 3 seat and never get back any.
He lost his creditable that time.
You might find those lost seats have a lot to do with redrawing of electoral boundaries. The electoral map of Singapore is hilarious. In any case, careful what you believe, what you heard about Chiam probably came from the PAP.
