Hello,5133 musicians and singers
I teach music privately in Singapore.
I submitted whatever that was being asked for(important documents, business plan) and didn’t submit whatever that wasn’t asked for (proofs of funds, assets).
My take(guess) on this stream is, as we are all self-employed, paying your taxes all this time makes it credible in your application. And also, how good your business plan is, will strongly determine the success of your application.
Of course there could be external factors such as annual quotas, nationality quotas that we may not know of.
Did you send a professional business plan or a just detailed synopsis of your business and how you plan to operate it in Canda?
