What are your biggest PR rejection fears? [emoji20]

What seems to be their reason for concern? Quota? You may loosely say it’s due to quota. The regulars here have said it countless times that PR is the stepping stone to SC.

I do know that there is definitely this fear among Indians that we are not considered very favorable.
That's for sure. Do you know of other races who also think their conditions aren't favorable?
Vietnamese and Peens

Applied once when we are not married -- both rejected.
Once after we get married + son -- rejected.

This finger, it's under the grace and faith!
Which country are you from and ethnicity? The question that you’ve been dodging.

Re: Employment Clause

Just curious about this. What is the benefit that an employer would get by hiring employment pass holders over s pass and wp? Easier approvals? S-Pass and WP have a quota and levy.

PR IPA letter mail delivery time limit

So there is a pattern on the processing time then. Why are you so against me asking just a simple question? What pattern can you observe if one applicant got approved in 3 months and another got rejected also in 3 months? Now, the one got approved earns $3,500 a month while the one who got rejected...
