Re: Chances of PR

No guts, no glory.

There is ALWAYS, a chance of success, like the lottery and like the casino.

“You will miss 100% of the shots you never take”

Even if you fail, there are no serious repercussions (I.e. deportation)

Re: Applying PR with consultancy companies

Found out my Sister in law used one of these companies to apply for PR. She works for an extremely famous tech company.

As to the outcome, it has been over 12 months, she doesn’t talk about it....

Re: PR - How low are my chances?

Chances are probably as good or better than winning the lottery.


I was rejected 6 years ago, then gotten approval. So things may have changed now, but may also change in the future.

Re: Hi please guide me to get a PR

Take the PR application fee and bet it all on either black or red at either of the casinos. Those chances of success are significantly better than PR.

Re: Short term maternity insurance

Quite a few Ob/Gyn in private Hospitals will offer them.

Walk into any in Gleneagles or Mount E ( My Wife went to one in ME Novena), should be easy to get.

Re: Short term maternity insurance

Assuming you are looking for insurance against birth complications, From what I recall, most insurance companies will only consider insurance if taken out before conception. Even then, there may be a comprehensive evaluation of the couple to determine any risk of abnormality. If you want to buy insu...

Success stories of your partner employment DH > LOC/EP / Advice needed

My Wife came to Singapore 1 year after I did. She quit her well paid career job in an MNC Pharma company because she couldn’t get an internal transfer to Singapore. Within a week of arrival, the Singapore Pharma affiliate opened up the desired role, and she applied and waltzed right in. This was nea...

Re: Can a post-doc with spouse and baby make do without DP?

Not likely possible to live by on visa runs. You know, when I was at Johns Hopkins, they did the same to postdocs. No family visa support until publication. Of course, this policy was dictated by PI rather than institution. But now you know how the other shoe fits. Best negotiate for a big salary in...

Re: What is the PR chances for Research Fellow in NUS with EP

One tricky aspect of such questions - is there an actionable threshold?

As a mathematician, would you respond differently to 10, 30 or 60% chance of success?

Re: Pregnancy - so many questions

Hi there, I understand some Thai Hospitals are also very popular destinations for Japanese to deliver - Bumrungrad for example. It would be far cheaper to give birth in Thailand, plus I am sure she would appreciate the care being rendered in her native language. In Singapore, most Hospitals expect t...
