pr rejected for your spouse doesn't seem like good news...?

low pay for having worked 10 years...?

I had only work 2004 to 2007 ( 3 years) after my diploma. Then stop that and continue degree and masters. Then start the career in 2011 as fresh engineer.

Your wife is back in India... what does that say about your commitment to live in Singapore?

Well, maybe she is unable to get a job in Singapore so staying on in LTVP here is not financially viable, so staying in India might be a better option.

Now everybody tiptoeing around the obvious? Low salary, wife back in India, nationality, and low salary considering a Masters Degree. I'd say it's pretty obvious. Additionally, how much baggage is the wife carrying that they rejected her PR. Was she working at the time or did you apply for her as a spouse under the family ties scheme? If rejected under the family ties scheme, I would hazard a guess that any Citizenship application was already determined at that point.

My take is simple. Should they approve your citizenship now, you will be eligible to get an HDB flat in the re-sale market w/o even getting your wife's PR. Which means you need not have to wait for 3 years from PR approval, which is a potential advantage.

In majority of the cases, I believe they would want to approve your spouse PR first before even considering your SG Citizenship application.
