Since, you didnt include yourself in the application, please wait. Usually around 12-15 months, the result will come.

If in case it is rejected, include yourself in the application and apply as a family after 1 year.

Thank you for your advice :D
But why need to wait 1 year.
We are thinking to include me , may be end of this month
How?
We are very confusing whether we wait till result out or before that i apply as a separate.
How can you apply separately? Are you the Main Applicant in the PR applicant? Dont think so.

Even if you are earning well now and you apply separately it will end up negative as they will think why you didnt apply as a family unit? IS there any issues is what ICA will think?

Oh, yeah! Got it :D
Anyway, i should wait their outcome first.
My hubby is main applicant right now together with my two kids.
If this time reject, we will do as family unit.
But how long we need to wait before second attempt.? I mean should we make some time gap between two applications.

Wait atleast 12-18 months. No rush.

It may a case of not how much you want it, but how much they want you. If that is the case, maybe look at plan B?

You have not said much on your Job Title/Job Scope, Salary, etc

First apply for PR for your wife may be after a year. And 2 years from that time apply for Citizenship as a family unit? But all of this depends on your job scope and salary too?

Being out of Singapore 1-5 weeks, etc has no bearing on your PR/Citizenship application. Only if you are out of Singapore regularly for a long time ( may be more than 1-2 months each year or for a longer period) only then it will count against you in the application.

The to show commitment to sink root in Singapore part - maybe you should have married a local? Since you’ve been in SG for >10 years. Where did meet your wife? In Singapore or it’s an arranged marriage back in your hometown? Maybe this shows the baggage you bring with you, just maybe.

Hi Everyone,

I am new here and would like to assess my chances of getting SC.

Turkish Male, age 33, SPR for about two years ++
Length stays in Singapore: about five years.
my Income was 4k. At the moment I am doing Doing my Ph.D. in Australia ( Full scholarship)
My wife and my kids (1 son and daughter aged 3 and 2yrs old) Singapore citizen.
my wife Income 10k living with me in Australia

I applied for my SC under family ties on 22 Jun 2018 and I managed to get an early interview next week. I am anxious at the moment cos I am doing my Ph.D. in Australia do you think ICA will reject my application?

Thank you
