Filipino earning $170,000/annum in oil & gas industry rejected for PR application

by Absquatulate9899 » Sat, 05 Nov 2016 7:00 pm

Greetings, for some background information, my family applied for PR earlier this year which includes my son (18) and my daughter (16) with me being the main applicant. Our application was rejected as it was pending for 3 months, I was devastated as we wanted to make Singapore our home and my family has plans of settling down here. My kids had attended a local secondary school, so far my son had finished his O levels and is now studying in a local polytechnic. I’m sure my daughter would follow through. I’ve also have local friends and am active within the community.

Age: 44
Gender: Female
Nationality: Filipino
Status: Separated (Undergoing a divorce)
Education: Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering and relevant course training certificates
Industry: Oil and Gas
Position: Global Helium Logistics Manager at an MNC (Has higher local to foreigner ratio)
Salary: $160,000 – $170,000 per annum
NOA: 5 Times
Years in Singapore: 3 (Since July 2013)
Application date: July 29, 2016
Rejection date: November 3, 2016

Apart from being required to submit more documents and the fact that I’m undergoing a divorce which I submitted relevant documents to the ICA officer, I don’t know what else could have caused our application to be rejected. We would consider applying again but how long must we wait until our next appointment? And thus any feedback would be welcomed.

We just received our rejection letter, I did state the usual rejection however nothing of the sort “You may apply again after x months”

    Thanks Gilbert for highlighting the weakness of our system. How can our system reject such a qualified applicant? Have we become North Korea?

  2. Wei Sheng says:

    I think it is fair enough for the reject. Our government wouldn’t so easily approve any tom dick and harry to get PR. If so easy to get PR, then Singapore will not have enough jobs for the locals

  3. Wei Sheng says:

    There are also many eligible locals who can also do such jobs. Can good jobs go back to our locals?

    I’m quite shock you’re earning so much as a Manager, really.
