New Online Application for Singapore Permanent Residency
Effective from 18th December 2017, all applications for Singapore Permanent Residency will be done online.
Applicants do not have to book an eAppointment Date to be physically present at the ICA, but instead upload the application on the ICA website.
Under the previous method, applicants had to book an "eAppointment" on the ICA website, which would often be completely booked for up to a few months later. Applicants will then have to personally print and submit their application for PR over the counter on their eAppointment Date.
Under the new method, applications can be submitted 24/7, and no longer need to book an appointment. The average waiting time for the result will still take 4 to 6 months, where applicants can check the status of their application via iEnquiry.
Applicants who have managed to book an eAppointment Date before the 18th of December can still submit their applications at the ICA as per previous method.
There will be a processing fee of S$100 per applicant during the point of submission, and an additional S$20 fee for the Entry Permit for successful applicants.
