hi! can anyone help me to evaluate my chances of getting PR. It will be my first time to apply.


Age:27 (next month)
Race: Filipino
Gender: Female
Education: Degree
Marital status: Single
Job: Early Childhood Educator
Length of stay in SG: 4.7 years (5th year in June 2021)
Job experience: 7 years
Salary: 45k annual with bonus

Also, I changed company 3 times. I have been in my current company for 2.4 years already

Is it true that marrying a local will have a higher chance? I have a local chinese boyfriend and planning to get married soon. If so, is it advisable to get married first before I apply PR?

Thank you so much to anyone who could help me. :)

@DreamDream and @PNGMK

Thank you for your response. Does that mean if I apply now as a single will most likely be rejected?

I just heard from others that Early childhood sector is in demand in singapore, does that count?

Single will not be the main reason for rejection.

Ethnicity and salary may play a big factor in your case. Try improving on your salary, stay longer and then apply.

Don't get married just to get PR. it is not right.

@singaporeflyer, Yes I completely agree.

Our recommendation are for those who love sg and would like to sink roots here.

With current pay scale, PR chances are very slim.

@singaporeflyer @DreamDream

Thank you for your help. I do agree too. that’s why if I have a chance to get PR while I’m still single, I would like to grab it. Rather that marrying.

In comparison, i believe my salary is quite high already in my industry. I get 3.4k a month while other Childcare teachers get 2.6-3k. Unless i get promoted then only i can get a salary 4k and above. Which is very difficult in my sector.

I hope you can still entertain me. Haha! Thanks a lot!

Ps: I’ve been reading this thread and I can only see IT, Engineer, Finance applying. I’ve never seen a preschool teacher. Haha!

Marital Status : Single
Religion : Buddhist
Education : Master
Current Field of Work : Investment
Length of stay : 1 year 2 months
No of tax return : Because I only work for 1 month + in 2018 so I wasn't taxed in 2019, but I do filed for tax return at that time.
Salary : Basic 60k+ ; Gross 90k+ with bonus
Pass : EP

I am quite new to this forum, would be really grateful for any help or guidance :D

Not sure how kid's birth place matters? There may be valid reason to plan the delivery in home country!
PR means permanent residence right? So,SG can expect the OP to be permanently here for everything?

If you take that there may be a valid reason for everything, then SG may be feel that the OP may have a valid reason to move out after PR has been given? Just my view.
My kid is born in India
