Sponsorship Appeal for Permanent Residence Successful: A New Years Surprise

Dear Kevin

I hope you are doing well and hope you are enjoying your time with your wife and the baby.

Please note that we received the positive decision [on your appeal] from the Immigration Appeal Division and I have forwarded this decision to the High Commission in Singapore requesting that they continue processing your wife’s permanent residence application based on this decision.

Please watch out for mail you or your wife might receive requesting information and possible a medical examination as well as security background checks in order to finalize the application.

Happy Holidays,



Hello Mary,

Sorry for the late reply, my wife and I have been very busy with our baby girl . We have just survived our first month together. Thank you very much for the wonderful news!!!

I will contact you when I get back to Canada. Happy New Year!!

    I am pleased to read this post. Today I got my Pr rejected. My wife is the main applicant living hear for 2 years in p1 pass. And am a dependent past 5 months working here in Singapore. Can I receive any help on knowing what are the chances of doing an appeal on the PR? Thank you.
