Chance to obtain a PR as a single French 33 years old, 4 years under EP.

Post by samalesi » Fri, 07 Feb 2020 12:52 pm

Hi everyone,

I have a question. I want to apply now for PR. Here my situation:

- French
- 33 years old
- Single
- 4 years in SG under EP
- Salary : 8500 sgd / month
- Can get recommandation from a Singaporean pastor.
- In current conflict with my company, so can not get their support for a recommandation letter.

What you think of my chances in 2020 February?

Extremely low. Of the ~30,000 PR granted per year less than 2% go to caucasians and most of those I suspect go to married couples with children.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.

You will need your employer to sign off on annex A which is part of the application process. Without this, there's no application if I'm not wrong.

I was also wondering about my chances

Profile:

Single
Male
27
Caucasian
3 years in Singapore
EP of 4500 monthly salary

My fiancee is Malysian Chinese and on an EP. She is 25. Are my chances better if we apply together as a married couple? Or even if she gets PR and then sponsors me in a year or two.
Thanks!

Each case is unique of course, but I have acquaintances who work in banking in similar circumstances as you and they earn 10k+ a month and didn't get their PRs approved.
Would be interested to hear your outcome.

If am not wrong, PRs can't "sponsor" for PR applications. They can only sponsor for LTVPs

PRs can sponsor their spouse and children for PR.

Well I decided to go ahead and apply a few weeks ago. I know my chances are V low.

Are these friends of a similar age or are they older?
