PR Chances (Already Applied)

Postby manuel_gator » Fri, 07 Feb 2014 12:02 pm

Hola,

My profile:
Indian, Single, 27 years old, Bachelors of Engg from India
Masters of Science from US public university
Working in IT Sales role for past 3 years in Singapore (On P2 Visa)
Salary: Around SGD 64k annual package.
Parents in India (Dad: Retired and Mom: Housewife)
One elder sister, married in my home-town (I'm from Maharashtra State)
Already filed taxes twice and will be filing third tax in few months.

I came to SG in Jan 2011 and applied for PR in Sept 2013. As I write, it is still pending. Just wanted to know what are the chances of approval?

Cheers,
Manuel

My status is still pending. It's been 8 months now. What's your opinion? Still low or we can raise it to medium?

Even lower. You're clearly not a shoe in... either you're waiting for quote spot or they're double checking your forgeries.

Having just had this exact same thing happen in HR with an Indian engineer we hired... I restate "checking the possibility of your certs being forged and the authenticating institution in India is not responding which leads to the probability of those certs not being trustworthy".

We chose to hire the Indian on the basis that the degree needs to be authenticated with x months... but we can fire him. With PR you can't easily take it away (well you can but it's not nice I guess and who cares if it takes 18 months in this case - we needed an engineer this month, not in 2015...).

I think some of these subconns are not factoring in the delay it's taking to get their qual's authenticated back in India. It can take up to 6 months in our experience.
