The reason I want to apply for citizenship is I wish to settle down here in Singapore after 9 years' stay. And the first thing to settle down is to buy a house. I cannot afford a condo
. With citizenship I can buy a (resale) HDB flat.
My fiancée has been on a WP for 3 years. The reason she requires a LTVP is for job change immediately, so she kind of of pushes to register the marriage ASAP.
I have been in Singapore for 9 yeas and been a PR for 3 years. I understand that 3 years of PR is probably too short for the citizenship to be granted in general. However, as I came to Singapore to study on a scholarship associated with 9 years of bond, this seems give me an advantage for the application. As far as I know, my friends with this similar background has successfully got the citizenship at a even earlier time (some being a PR for 1 or 2 years only before citizenship conversion). I am not 100% sure, but I reckon the time should not be a big issue.
BUT, I am wondering whether my spouse situation will disadvantage my application if I get married before the application? How much weight does ICA give on spouse's background(although the spouse is not applying) when assessing my citizenship application?
Thank you so much!
