Thumb Rule to wait for PR application

Postby SG_aspirant » Mon, 27 Jul 2015 10:53 pm

Folks,
I was told by a senior guy here (thank you, I do have your vote!!) that 2 full years of stay (3 tax assessments will be better) is the thumb rule to wait for a PR application to be made. Since it changes with every profile (although I agree its a pattern), I'm looking for your vote here on , many more opinions on the topic never hurt!!
My Profile looks like this -
1.Indian citizen, 32 years age
2.Working in IT -Marketing domain, 11.5+ work exp., Masters (Software Engineering)
3.On EP here -usual 2 years
4.Have landed here in January itself so about 7 months of stay here
5.Salary > 8K per month
6.Wife here with me on dependent pass, not working right now but planning to take up a job in the near future. No Kids as of now.

Pls vote if you think 2 full years still holds good or not.
Thanks so much for your help!!

How come folks like you can't read? Or accept reality? 3 YEARS of assessments and you think 7 months of stay will do the trick?

Tell me... why do you think that the gahmen would possibly be interested in you when a) they know nothing about you, and b) you can't follow simple instructions and wait for 3 years of assessments before applying?

Wow...has this forum always been this hostile!!! I have read and even asked a gentleman here like I mentioned. Do you not see my question or what(its not even a question, its a damn poll, there may be hundreds of reasons why I may have missed (or I didn't find in ica's website- did you ask me how much time I have spent reading??no..why would you!!) or you're so arrogant that you'd stop people from writing anything on the forum? This is a professional forum so control your urges on taking personal attacks on people.

I gave you the answer. If you had read through any of the hundreds, if not thousands, of posts about PR on this board, you would realize that your question has been asked over and over and over again.

Think about it. The government specifies conditions for PR. You, with 7 months, want to know if there are exceptions. Why? What kind of special are you?

Call me hostile if you want, and, there are so many of you from the sub-con with exactly this kind of question and this kind of attitude. Your 'poll' is not whether 2 years 'holds good or not', it's about you posting your qualifications to see if anyone thinks you can be an exception to the rule. If it were a poll, you'd wouldn't include your mini-CV with it.

Do like most folks do who apply for and receive PR... meet the qualifications. Stop looking for the back door.

I don't have to prove anything to you dude...nor I'm looking for any back-door...I don't need to..you have a prejudice against Indians so u can live with it or be a better man and help people. I got an opinion from someone and I thought of getting it solidified to make my decision confirmed and I asked - as simple as that. There is another school of thought as well other than this 2 year in which people advise to apply post 6 months of stay and find out if there's something wrong early which could be corrected later on-now I'm not saying that they're correct but just bringing it ahead and that's why I needed this poll to see what are the odds.
In any case if you felt that this is wasting your time then you can simply ignore it and carry on with your life. Nobody is forcing you to spend your time here. And last point, I'm not calling you hostile (as it wasn't personal at that time) but I'm calling you an egotistical maniac who believes too much in blabering and not helping people. Neither this is a platform for me to display my qualifications (I'm in no disbelief that I'm better than others, my horizon is not so small!!) - why dont we start by you telling us which country are you from so its very clear as to why do you have that prejudice and don't ever again generalize your Stereotypes.

You're so ferking smart... apply for PR then... you obviously know a lot more about the situation than any one here. Let us know how it goes. I'll put up a couple of hundred at 3 to 1 odds you get the kiss of death rejection letter. Be sure to bring your attitude, the one you have here, to ICA when you interview... they'll love your for it and you'll go a long way with it.

PS: Anyone with half a lick of sense can quickly find out where I am from, what my academic credentials are, what my history is, and what my prejudices, if any, may be. OK, I admit it... I have one prejudice... I don't like arrogant dumb assess.

If you had asked a senior person here and they told you 3 assessments or 2 years before applying, then why would you have to ask again on the open forum? Why didn't you just ask the forum initially? All you did was obliquely say that the senior person doesn't know what he is talking about. Or, he didn't give you the answer you were hoping to hear. You stuck you foot in it and now you've stuck the same foot up your arse and alienated the whole board. When you f**k up you do it royally. And you wonder why most of us here seem to have a hard on against those from the subcon? Because, almost without fail, you are spot on contributing to the stereotype.

Yep, the OP does not know how to search and read old posts.

But, do you know how to ignore stupid questions. Did you have to reply to his question. Naturally, some people will get pissed off by this know it all attitude.

I studied in Singapore for few years. But I applied for PR after 6 months of work. And I got PR , that too in 2014. The OP may not get since he does not have a history in Singapore.

People like OP should not post. But people like you should not reply if you cannot help or make a person feel better.

You also probably got a letter from ICA or MOM inviting you to apply for PR as well, if you went to Uni here. Makes a big difference as they know what kind of schooling you have here, versus some "reputed" school that nobody outside of that country's borders has ever heard of, save it's own citizens.

You mean the usual schools giving out the usual masters ? ;)

Midlet, even a local poly diploma here has more clout for ICA vs "Reputed Degrees" from elsewhere. I am sure you know that already ....

Midlet feels the admins are crazy to provoke the Masters student ... or so I think ... (pardon me if it's otherwise. .. )

Though shall not invoke the fury of the master. .. students.
