Chances of PR: Indian EP married to Malaysian PR

Postby smoulder » Fri, 25 Dec 2015 11:41 pm

Hi All, my first post here :)

I am an Indian, male, 35, EP holder and my details are as follows:
* Been here for a shade under 3 years.

* Total of 12 years of work experience in IT with a Bachelor's degree in Engineering from India

* Annual salary of around $100k

* IT solution architect working for a very large IT MNC (joined in May 2015). I'm on a renewable contract (hoping it will become permanent in May 2016)

* This is my 3rd company in Singapore

* Applied for PR once in Feb 2015 and was rejected in June the same year (happened just a few weeks after I started at my new company.

* Just got married to a Malaysian Chinese who is a PR (been here for 4 years including 3 years as a PR). NOTE: it's not a marriage of "convenience" - we've been living together for around 16 months before we tied the knot. Her salary is around 85k per year. Our marriage was registered in Singapore btw.

* if it helps, I've taken a decent amount of life and medical insurance locally

* and I love durian :p

Wondering what folks here reckon are my chances of getting a PR given my circumstances. I have been advised by someone to apply again at least 6 months after my marriage - suggestions on this point too are more than welcome.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers

Dear smoulder, My personal opinion is that odds are against you. I have got one of my friends same as you; Indian national married to a Malaysian PR; having two kids as well; still Reject. Anywasy the ICA officers decide not us. All the best to you. Let us know the outcome later.....

Thanks tom. Yea I realize the odds are stacked against me and will certainly keep everyone posted on the outcome.

What do you folks suggest is an optimum time to wait after my ROM to apply so as not to raise the suspicion of being in a marriage of convenience?

There is no optimum time to wait. Also I dont see anything wrong in applying now and then reapplying every 2 years until they eventually give you PR.

Oops my statement came across as if he would definitely get PR someday. I think, what I was trying to say was, he can keep trying every 2 years and that may not impact his chances in a negative way.
