Hah! Irrelevant but funny.

Anyway OP, if your wife is not paid in SGD in SGD bank accounts for her freelance work, I think that's where the grey area is but I must add that I'm not in the position to comment.

And, guys, what's wrong with him applying with her together as his spouse as a family? I've always thought the consensus is that it is better to apply together. Unless there is something I'm not aware of.

are you saying that If i apply for PR together with my wife, then there would be a chance I get approved alone but not her?

I thought the result is either we both get approved or we both get rejected.


It is always better to apply as family. The merits of both of your applications are based on you because you're the provider for your household.


For my case, i applied PR alone with own merit point, approved after about 1.5 month and after all process done applied as sponsor PR for my wife, got rejected ( not too sure is it she pregnant at the moment). half a year later after my girl born, applied as sponsor for both of them and got approved after 3 months.

May i ask the reason your wife not working?


Can you tell us the dates when your's got approved and when your wife's got rejected? May be there in lies the clue.


my approval got it somewhere July 2012, apply somewhere September 2012 (pregnant about 6 months), rejected November 2012.

Normally, when we advise that it's because both parties are working (maybe not necessarily on EPs but a mixture of passes). Therefore both are qualified to apply (but occasionally one may not have been on the requisite pass for, say two years), then they should both apply as a family unit. However, if only one is working, then the spouse doesn't have a sponsor, nor are they working (where a sponsor is the employer or not - but still working). See the Eligibility link at ICA.
