i'm no expert... but if i were you, i wouldn't apply yet. given your age, pay's really low... and you've not paid any taxes... (i think?) and it's been less than 2 years since you start working.

19k per month puts her in the highest tax bracket in Singapore, how on earth is it low!?

OP, go ahead and apply, there's never any guarantee of success, so be prepared for that. Ideally, wait for a couple of years before applying.

You couldn't get EP if it was per year.
Getting to the point, I would wait a bit till your husband stays here for a year or two.

Nothing to lose by applying, however I am figuring best apply together as I suspect Govt might find it fishy why you are applying and hubby is not.

Were you transferred in for your jobs both you and hubby , your case officer may see it that there is every chance you could get transferred out again so what would be the point of granting you PR.

Also your jobs are the type that the Govt wants Citizens filling not foreigners.

If the wind is in your favour I reckon approval in no time , if it isnt then probably drag out a while then reject.
