PTS Scheme or Spouse Scheme for PR application

Post by Masshimo » Sat, 20 Oct 2018 10:44 am

Hi, I am a Malaysian Chinese and Singapore PR for 6 years with annual income of 80k.

My wife is Malaysian Chinese holding EP with annual income of 45k. Working in sg about 1.5 years.

We have been married for 6 months. No kids yet.

As my wife is eligible to apply PR with either PTS scheme or Spouse scheme (me as sponsor), the question is which scheme has the higher chances of success rate?

Any comments and advice is appreciated. Thanks. :)

Although you are just married and don't think about such things, but you may also consider consequences in case you have kids and things get difficult between you and your spouse. If she is a PR based on family ties and you get divorced, she may need to leave the country and the kids usually follow their mothers. You are both the preferred race so I think for her both routes to the PR are pretty much doable with the chances not that much different.

Thanks x9200 for the insights and kind advice. Even my wife apply with the PTS schemes, it is required to submit my particulars as well because we are married. That’s why I’m wondering which approach has the higher chances.

Do you have any links for thread that discussing the similar issue as mine? I try to use the search function but couldn’t find any.

Thanks a lot.

Through spouse scheme has higher chances if they are married for atleast 2 years or have a kid.
