I'm assuming you are female (you don't say and eyan is kind of androgynous). If I am right, then you probably have a 70% chance of getting it. If you get PR are you going to bring you child to Singapore? Is the child male or female?

Is it just me? As I recall, when I went for my PR appointment, they didn't ask me for much of anything. We basically reviewed all the materials I had sent in my original application, made a few copies of this and that, but nobody asked things like, "Why do you want to be a PR?" Or, "How long do you plan on being PR?"

Do you think there was someone behind a two way mirror checking out my PR suitability?

Yup, you are right, forgot to mention that during my post. My son will be 10yrs old this year, planning is to let him finish study in Malaysia coz study in Sg could be really stressful an expensive.

Is this one of the criteria to consider for the Pr approval also?

Thanks

Applying for PR yourself without including your son will appear that you want your cake and eat it too. By not applying for your sonit will appear that you only want to abuse the system as you will be telling ICA that you want the benefits but don'twant your son to be obligated for National Service. Will be a big negative on your application I'm afraid.

Possibly, but then how to bring him into Singapore later? And if she does she might only get a svp for him and not even be able to get an ltvp. It's playing with fire. Is the boy on a dependent's pass currently? She needs to clarify that as well as it will also have a bearing on the success or failure of her app.

Not if you're truthfully filling out the PR application form. The application form asks for details on all of the applicant's children and then also asks whether each child is applying for PR or not. Failure to supply this information, truthfully, would certainly appear to be a criminal violation of the Immigration Act, as the form itself helpfully reminds applicants.
