Evey time that we are going to ICA they are telling us it is under process.

- Total Years of Experience : over 25 years
- Experience in Singapore : 8 year
- My PEP expired last august and got EP .

-Nationality : IRANIAN
-FAMILY :
1)Wife: has Nursing Diploma and has 20 years experience
2)Children : First Son (20 years old) Second Son (17 years old) and the Daughter (9 years old) at the time of application..
Is there any Chance to get PR?
is there available website that we can check status of application because i always on business trip?if yes please write down the LINK.

My opinion is that you, along with many others, are being screwed by the government. You see, you complicate things.

Way back when... OK... 10 or 12 years ago, PR was granted on a different basis. If Singapore perceived you as having desirable skills, they would hand out PR as an incentive for you to keep your skills in Singapore long term.

But, I think there has been a shift in government thinking. They are less concerned now about skills and more concerned with racial makeup. Your problem, as an Iranian, is that you don't fit into any neat, preconceived box that makes "racial management" easy for the authorities.

How are they going to factor in you and your ilk (that is, other low percentage ethnicity/nationality) when it comes to setting quotas in HDB, for example. Who can they lump you in with?

I judge the gahmen is exceptionally shortsighted when they ignore long term residents such as yourself. The conservative old guard seems to be in charge... far more important to keep the percentages of Chinese, Indians, Malays, and "others" in fixed numbers, than to set policies that allows Singapore to establish what they need in terms of talent for the future, then take it, regardless of race or nationality.

Added for emphasis, the system is racist.

I would say double check that you have entered all the information correctly. However, any time you could go down to ICA to have a little chat about your application.

Is everyone in on the application?
"The following categories of foreigners are eligible to apply for permanent residence:
(a) Spouse and unmarried children (below 21 years old) of a Singapore Citizen
(SC)/ SingaporePermanent Resident (SPR) "

Your sons are touch and go if they are on the application, maybe this will affect your application chances.

They will probably have to do NS.

Hahaha Truth. You need some politic connection . Anyway, living standard is so high .... You can't retire here. In JB, living standard is low but security level is bad. In other word , when you eat a chicken rice $4- indirectly pay our security fees.
