Although it can be pretty discouraging, you should never give up! Receiving a rejection letter does not reduce your chances to obtain permanent residence. It simply prolongs the application process. It is also essential to know that there are no limitations on how often you can submit a fresh application for PR.
There are a few ways to proceed after receiving a letter of rejection from the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).
You can re-apply in the next application window, appeal for a rejection or consult a professional immigration agency for advice. TIP offers a free consultation for all clients, so do not hesitate to drop us a call or message!
If you intend to submit a new application form, there will be a cooldown period of 6 months. It would help if you also took time to note any further qualifications, achievements, higher salary, or any significant contributions to society and include them in your next application.
You can either mail your appeal letter to ICA or pass a physical copy of it along with any other mandatory documents to the PR department in the ICA building.
