Hi All,

I applied for PR on September 2019, received an email on March 2020 for submitting 'Ent/Details Of Family Members', on May 2020 received a letter from ICA informed due to Covid19 the average processing time for each PR application will be longer. I would like to find out any chance of approval, based on your past experience.

Age : 30
Race : Chinese
Nationality: Malaysian
Gender : Female
Marital Status : Single
Education : Diploma in Hotel & Catering Management (Malaysia)
Job : Human Resources
Length of stay : 7 years+
Salary : 30K+ P/A
Pass: S Pass

Thanks! Much appreciated :)

Based on the responses we've seen here, you stand a reasonably good chance, mainly because of your ethnic group and nationality as well as your longish stay

Thank you for your prompt reply to my inquiry, should I drop an email to check with ICA? Or just patiently waits for them to process? Thank you.

Chinese ethnicity typically gets a heavier weight. However, being Indonesian puts you lower down the pecking order than Malaysia Chinese, which anecdotally seems to almost be guaranteed.

Your biggest hurdle is that you have only been in Singapore for a very short space of time. This you can't do anything to "fix", other that stay longer. We normally recommend at least 2 tax cycles before you even consider applying, some would say 3 cycles.

Depending on what IT you are selling it might change your chances. What does your company sell?

Just wondering, why ppl state their religion?
Does it have any weight in PR or citizen application?

I noticed this too! I wonder if it's because they saw others state it, or if they are thinking it may be important. The latter could be cause such religious distinctions are known to be important in their country of origin.

Well also the common logic is that ICA only asks for relevant information they care about and religion is one of the item on the PR application form you need to fill in. Unless this has changed recently. So there's a logic to believe that it is one item that has some weight. More that MP letter or volunteer work that is not asked. But anyway it seems quite logic that it might have some weight.
