PR approval chances - 1 year in SG, professional EP family

Post by sxsw » Sun, 14 Jun 2015 3:47 pm

First time poster, long time lurker here. Searched the forums but couldn't find anyone else with a similar story/background. Feel free to *** on this post if it doesn't belong, but here goes.

We are considering applying for a PR. Wanted to see if anyone else has a similar background, or knows of any other families with a similar background, and their PR rejection/approval result?

Heard of anecdotal stories of others getting approved quickly (less than 2 years) if both parents have good education and good jobs, plus children.

Wife and I are both EP holders, 3 kids, high salary and high education credentials.

Me - Canadian passport, mid 30's, Vietnamese heritage (non-Chinese).
My Education: Masters and Bachelors (Business) from highly ranked university.
Length in Singapore: 1.5 years
Job: Director at an international professional services company.
Salary: 13K+/month

Wife - Korean passport, late 30's.
Wife's Education: Bachelors (Business) from a highly ranked university.
Time in Singapore: 10 months
Job: Marketer at a major European media company.
Salary: 12K+ month

Children: 3 (1 boy, 2 girls) - all under age 10. All in International School.

Motivation: we want to stay in Singapore in the long-run to be close to our families in the region and want our kids in top local schools. Plus we love Singapore.

What do you think our chances of PR approval are this early (<2 tax yrs?)

Yes. Sorry I don’t go on this forum much but wanted to update on a very old post. It took 1.5 years to get the PR from app submission to approval.

Replying to an old post. Dont jump the gun fast, that it gives hope. Sometimes some of the posts here may not be a real case, and just some fantasy stories once the applicant gets a rejection. Whether what they say is real or fake is anyone's guess. Usually these profiles wont get pr, especially within 2 to 3 years. But if it gives you hope to make you feel good, then its up to you.

hopeislife, you need to get a life instead of trying to be a somebody here. Talk about jumping the gun fast. It would help if you did your homework before continually sticking your foot in your mouth.

Why are you alluding to an old thread being a possible fantasy story? Only in your own mind, maybe because you are clueless? It is extremely rare, for someone posting from a local ISP and/or having more than one post, to post troll/fantasy types of posts (advertising/soliciting notwithstanding as we normally catch them). Now if the old thread only consisted of a single post by the OP, then yeah, maybe but normally they don't have local ISPs. As each week goes by you lose a lot more credibility than you gain. And again, opinions are like A-holes. Most stink.
