What are the chance of getting PR

Postby fakhri82 » Thu, 03 Apr 2014 4:54 pm

Hi,

I'm Indian citizen married to SC for 5 years. We've been living together in India since after marriage. We have a son 3yrs old also SC.

We are now thinking of moving to singapore.

My in-laws both also SC. Both living in Singapore, My father-inlaw agree to be my sponsor for the PR application.

I and my wife are 12% + 12% share holders in a singapore pte ltd company which is less than 2 yrs old now. In the first yr of the company turnover made was over 2mil SGD and audit is done. profit for the first yr over 400k SGD for the company. However we havent taken out any amount and keep reinvesting in the company itself to expand.

Our thinking goes - if we manage to get PR for myself - then we move to singapore intially staying with at my inlaws house then probably look for a hdb and at the time i can join my company and work there on salary basis too.

my wife too can start working. she was working for over 5 yrs before she left singapore after marriage.

So do you think I have a chance with a PR application ?

I don't really know the chances, but I'd suggest they will be much higher if you can find a way to come to Singapore first, live and work here at least a few years, and then make the PR application. However if your plan is the other way around as you stated, i.e. only if you get PR, then move to Singapore..... Well I reckon the chances are lower and the waiting time will require a lot of patience as you can see by other posts, it can be > 1 year to get an answer on PR, are you that patient to keep all your plans onhold waiting for this?

Hi Beeroclock,
Yes patience i defo have :)
this is all in the planning stage ..i;m not looking to rush into this at all.
if anything it wud take me atleast 2 yrs from now that we do make the shift.
We live a comfortable life here so I dont want to rush out and maybe have to face an inital 'struggle' period settling in spore.
Wud prefer, God willing - to have a decent saving through my spore company in 2 yrs time. for us to invest in booking a HDB. So we'll wait atleast 2 yrs till we go.
Wanted to ask if I should be adventurous and directly apply for PR - would i have a chance ? or more sensible would be i just do the ltvp first?

Or is it possible and recommended to apply for both ltvp and PR at the same time ?

Definitely possible, most PR applicant will naturally be residing in SG when they apply and so will be on either Ltvp or EP /WP/DP. Maybe you can get an EP from your own company, would be my first thought. I think if you search the business forum you can find a lot of useful info there.

You can definitely apply for PR, I was in the same position over 6 years ago, married to SC for 4 years and we were living in the UK. You have probably got a reasonable good chance of getting approval.
