Honestly? Without your family on the application? Zilch. With your family on the application but having been rejected for PR 3 times? I'm afraid I'd have to say zilch as well. It doesn't look good. But don't let reality get in the way of playing Don Quixote. Who knows? Stranger things have happened. :wink:

so was her PR finally approved or not?

I'd say 0% chance if her PR was never approved. Somewhere between 0% and 2% if it was.

Better apply as family once your wife gets PR. Did she apply as your wife for the third time? What about your child? Is she a PR too?

curious question: why do married people apply for PR as an individual? is there some special benefits in doing that? wouldn't it make more sense to apply as a family? :???:
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Thanks for the input guys ..
1) no her PR was not approved for the 3rd time and my kid as well ( applying for first time)
2) why we didnt apply together :-no rows boat in two river ..i cross river oreddy .. I was already a PR during my time of marriage ...

1st time .. it was just 3 months since my wife came here and we got the rejection straight away which made sense to me
2nd time ..she was out of country and while her PR application was in process her LTVP expired .. so i am assuming the rejection was based on the fact that she didnt have a "legal status" in Singapore
3rd time :- rejection after 11 months .. dont know why ..they rejected after approving my REP ..

There are many cases where one spouse has PR but the other one's PR gets rejected.

What does you wife do and what are her qualifications? Is she going to be financially independent in the future. They want 2 capable individuals rather than one dependent.

I dont know what value u see in getting Citizenship if your wife does not even have a PR.

I am 34 and in IT and wife is an engineer but she is not working ...she is rather interested in the art side of stuff ..painting etc ..so hard to answer the question if she will be financially independent in future .it depends on her..:)

well ideally i would like them to give PR to my wife as well . We like the place and everything else and planning to settle down permanently ..so thought of taking the plunge and applying for SC ..
