Congratulations. It looks like they might have just sat on it until you were with your employer for 2 years. No matter, you have it now.

Chances are really varies.
I have few friends from the same company and qualification and working experiences are about the same. One is approved and one is still pending.

sharing a little bit more on my family background that i think might have a little contribution to my successful application.

Parents were working in Singapore when they are young,for about 10 years and they have CPF account in Singapore. One brother is studying in polytechnic here, one is working and studying part time ACCA here.

Good lucks to every applicants!

Ya, was still talking with friends that most probably get rejected, on the night before the status is approved. But finally long waits worth. :P

Hi, planning to submit my application on August, here's my profile:

Male, 25, Chinese Malaysian
2010 - 2013 Diploma from local Poly
2013 - 2016 Degree from local U
Current- Employment Pass in Engineering, 3k+ per month.

Will submit around early August, so will only have 2 months of payslip to submit. Understand that it is advisable to wait for 6 months before applying but since the application process is taking so long, so I'm thinking maybe I should just apply first anyways, what do you think my chances are? Thanks!

And no tax assessments, I assume.

What's wrong with having an appointment timed to have at least 6 months of payslips? ICA will have almost zero employment history to consider according to your current plan. Is that a good idea?

No tax assessment either, it's only my first month. Well what I'm thinking is that since the application process takes so long (those 15 months pending status) by that time I would have enough employment history for them and I'm just a fresh graduate, nothing much gonna change after 6 months except that I have got more payslip to show. Hence thinking of applying just after 2 months of employment.

hmm thats with assumption.
tax assessment results for this year (Jan ~ Dec 2016) won't come out for at least April 2017.
So you're technically ahead by a whole 12 months.

Unless you're kind of guy who is really unfortunate to have to wait for a year plus (like me :-|), chances are they will review your application much sooner, and by that time you wouldn't even have any tax assessment for them to look at.

but who knows, seems that malaysians have the best chance to get their PR approved anyways, so dem payslips probably doesn't even matter :wink:

=D> ](*,) You, I'm afraid, are going to need a lot more than just luck. they will take one look at your application (when they eventually get to it) see you applied after only two months (when they tell you to have at least two years or three tax assessments (when applying). Bang, you're dead in the water. You are just showing them that you are incapable of following simple instructions. They don't need any more like that, they have a whole country full of citizens like that already. You are supposed to be foreign 'talent'. Doesn't sound too talented to me if you cannot see something that simple.

And those who followed ICA's instructions will have even more employment history. They'll have the minimum (or more) that ICA asked for plus "those 15 months."

You have the option to disregard ICA's instructions (plural). What's the "damn good reason" why you should?

Understand that waiting longer will definitely increase my chance but just want to try my luck after reading their FAQs:

Q: Can I apply for SPR immediately after working here?
A: You can submit an application for consideration as long as you have been issued with a P, Q or S Work Pass.

I mean if they really think I can't follow simple instructions just because I submitted before 6 months then I think they are giving out wrong information on their website. Anyways I'll try to make an appointment maybe 3-4 months later (it's really hard with the full appointments from now till December).

But unless everything else has been adhered to, requirement wise, it's not going to go anywhere. It does leave the door open, as is normal with just about everything here when it includes the government ministries, just in case the proverbial "Rocket Scientist" or "Neuro-Surgeon" just happens to stumble into SG and decide they was to stay, the the government will have left a side door open that they can open wider as and when they need it.

But for average, run of the mill, plebes, you can forget it. You are just showing them how little you want it by not reading the entire site and following best practices (which they kindly spell out for you). :roll:
