Chances are low till you complete atleast 2 years of marriage or till you have a kid.

Hi All,

First timer here. I am a Singapore Citizen, and applied for PR for my wife (1st application) in September 2020 (after 1 year of marriage). This was before I read this forum and realised it would be best to apply after 2 years of marriage (or after a kid).

My wife is now pregnant and expected to deliver our to-be SC child Q3 this year.

The application for PR is still pending (almost 6 months), and I do not see an option for me to update ICA that my wife is now pregnant. Would ideally hope that the PR application is approved before my child is born.

The application for PR is still pending (almost 6 months), and I do not see an option for me to update ICA that my wife is now pregnant. Would ideally hope that the PR application is approved before my child is born.

Some basic details below:

About me: Singapore Citizen, Chinese
Age : 35
Job : Legal Counsel
Pay : 200k (excluding bonuses) per annum
Married : September 2019
Children: Nil (but one arriving in Q3 2021)

About wife: British Citizen, Korean ethnicity
Age: 37
Job: Legal
Pay: 180k+ per annum
Current pass: EP (independent of me)
Time working in Singapore: 3+ years (although there was an interruption in between when we both went to the UK for a year)

Grateful for any comments or thoughts on how to expedite the PR application or increase chances now.
Better to update after the kid is born. You may get it this time or max after 1 year.

Thanks for your quick reply. How would I update ICA? Send to their generic email address? The option to "submit new documents" is disabled for me on the ICA portal.

Hi all,

I applied in Aug 2019 and subsequently updated ICA when I received increments (once) and moved houses (twice). I am yet to hear back. Anyone else been waiting 18+ months?

Thank you.

Hi Jacie,

I really wish from bottom of my heart that ur Application will change to approved soon. I can't imagine waiting for 18months to know the results. I hope ur waiting is really worth. Mine is now pending for 12months.

About me: Singaporean Chinese
Age: 34
Job: Tuition Centre Teacher
Pay: 40k/yr

About wife: Chinese National
Age: 28
Job: Tuition Centre Teacher
Pay: 33k/yr
Married in Sep 2019
LTVP PLOC
Has PMLA
Has a degree

We were living together in China then due to Covid-19, decided to settle and live in Singapore for the long-term. We are in SG since Jan 2020.

Applied PR in Dec 2020 (I know we are 3+ months in)

Hope to get PR sooner, as an SG-PR family nucleus would help us seek our own apartment accommodation, then various medical benefits and move on with baby plans. It's a trying period to adjust to the pandemic, so definitely seeking to find as much assistance as possible.

Is there anything I can add to improve our chances and expedite the process (MP letter, sponsor change of job with higher pay, or just be patient)? Currently, we are kind of waiting for an apartment (rented, resale, BTO), before we have a baby.

Renting a whole apartment should cost over $2k/mth from the open market, a bit too high for us. Renting a room only is not so favourable for a baby-environment. It is holding our subsequent plans and I am getting older ... = /

Hi All,

Appreciate if you can share some thought about my current situation.
Please see below for my details.

Nationality: Malaysian Chinese
Age: 33
Race: Chinese
Gender: Female
Marital status: Single
Applying for: Myself
Education: Bachelor (Hons) Degree in Mechatronics Engineering
Length of stay in SG: 4.5 years
Pass type: EP
Occupation: Business Analyst
Salary: S$83k + equity
Work experience: 11 years
SG Tax Assesment: 4 years including this year.

I applied for PR on early Feb this year.
While waiting for the result, my company just reached out to me and say they could not renew my EP which is expiring on May, as it is rejected by MOM. So they will need to offer me a WP as they no longer have quota for SP.
Just checking if the downgrade will impact my PR approval as I know WP is not eligible for PR application.
If my PR wasn't approved before my EP is expired, is it a 100% rejection? or even if it is approved, I will not be able to do the formalities as my qualification had changed?

Thanks in advance for the time spent to look into this.

The salary I applied for the first time was $2500/month and the second time it was $2600/month, both in EP pass.
I started working in SG in 2008 and stayed in SG until April 2011. From that year on, I went back and forth between SG and MY every day until August 2014.

Looks you may be on the borderline. No harm trying again
