I applied for PR 3 times and has been rejected. Now I am thinking to apply again after buying a condo. Should I apply for me only or include wife and daughter like before. Any chance if only me in application coz my wife is not working.
Some my info:
Race: vietnamese
Occupation: engineering
Salary: 70k per annual
Degree: bachelor from university in Vietnam
Wife: no working
Daughter: 4 years old.

Tks for all your comments.

Buying a condo had absolutely no bearing on your PR application. Unless something has materially changed (other than a salary increment, e.g., promotion to a higher position or change of job with vertical promotion, change in the family make-up, finished your PhD, wife went to work, etc.) I would say the writing is already on the wall. Make as much money as you can and prepare to move on when the time is right (for you or for the government, as the case may be).

You have not indicated what was written on your three rejection letters. That would help us give a fairer assessment.
