One PR application or two for dual EP couple?

Postby jellojello » Wed, 12 Nov 2014 1:40 pm

Hello,

My husband and I are applying for PR. We both hold Employment Passes, and we both have very strong credentials in terms of educational background, professional achievements, etc. His income is about $30k SGD per month and mine is $12k SGD per month.

My question is, do we fill out two applications or just one? If we do just one application with him as the main applicant, then it doesn't seem like the application has any space for my employment information or professional accomplishments, volunteer work, etc. The form only asks for employment info on the "main applicant". Will they just ignore my income and background?

On the other hand, if we do two applications and list each other as spouses, will that be confusing for them? I think our application is probably strong enough with just his info, but it would be even better with mine as well! What do you recommend?

It is always better to apply as a family and not as individuals if you already have a family. Employment Information/Accomplishments/Volunteer work, etc of the dependent applicant can be provided separately as attachments in a separate sheet and it should be ok. But, you also need to know that majority of the weightage will be given for the main applicant.
