    I kindly request the selected permission to be granted to my profile

    Is this sentence correct?

    - I kindly request the selected permission to be granted to my profile

    Welcome to the forum.

    Without a closing punctuation mark, your sentence is not correct.

    Please note that I have changed your thread title and I have put your question into the main body of the post. Titles should include some/all of the words/phrases you are asking us about.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please tell us who you are writing this to and explain in simple, informal English the context of your sentence.

    No, sorry. It doesn't make sense. Profiles can't get permission. Only people can get permission.

    What do you mean by selected permission? What is your profile?

    Tell us more about what you're trying to say.

    Thanks!
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    If it's an online profile, it might be a question of permissions. If it is, then the language is probably a bit formal.

    We'll know better when the OP replies to posts 3 and 4.
