Yep.


if the waiting is killing, you can

a) withdraw the application

or

b) send an email to ICA asking for an update, in which case, from what i have seen, half the time your application status suddenly changes to rejected :twisted: :evil:

If it helps, I have applied on behalf of my spouse and it has been nine months and it still shows pending.

I did hear of two other cases where they had been approved in the middle of this year in 5-6 months and another case that has been pending for 14 months and counting...

Nowadays processing time getting longer and longer although there is state 4-6 months to process, hear a lot of experience is more than 6 months.

There's no point, as you'll get zero 'read-across' from comparing your application to that of some other random person.

Where is that stated?

There is also a "state", whatever that is supposed to mean, of "you can apply for PR after 6 months as well. But when is the last time you heard of anybody getting PR 6 months after they arrived here, unless they are George Soros or Jim Rogers. You are unlikely to get PR until you have been here 2 full calendar years. Your "state" is nothing more than the absolutely minimum you will have to wait, with the odds being 15 to 24 months being the norm.

Hi greymatter - Are you married to Singapore Citizen?
Mostly ICA keep such couples waiting for more than 15 months then approve or likely to reject.
