Marrying a guy definitely as I'm a girl.. He is Malaysian Chinese,EP holder as well, we didn't apply together as spouse as only decided to rom after the pr submission date was set. would it be easier for him to get pr after I hv obtained mine and apply for him as spouse?


Wouldn't be too worried since both of you has decided to set your roots in Singapore anyway. So updating them your ROM status now is just as good as later.

Hi folks, is it advisable to apply for PR after have been working for 3 months? Considering the ICA appointment slot that is taking more than 6 months.

Some background of me, Malaysian Chinese, 34, married with 2 kids. Family are all already here in SG.

ICA asks for 3 years*, you ask for 3 months. You can't be that serious?

*ICA would ask for 3 Notice of Assessment from IRAS, which is equivalent of 3 years of income tax.

It is normal for PR slots to take more than 6 months. Nobody ever said that applying for PR is easy peasy. But you can try to secure by checking into eAppointment page every day before 9am to get earlier slots that are cancelled last-minute by candidates who change their minds.

And the craziest early timeline one could try (because they are Malaysian Chinese) is 6 months, not 3 months. And 6 months is not even a guarantee yet that you will get approved for PR.

An update for this post..

PR approved for both me and my hubby, we applied PR separately in March and registered for marriage in June.
Less than 6 months of waiting. Couldn't be happier :)

However, a question to the Guru(s) here, ICA website shows Approved means confirmed will get it right?

Yes and do try to sign up as a volunteer in the CC, unless volunteering is not your kind of thing ;)

Yes, they all need to be informed. They will need a copy of your IC.

And for banks, enjoy your new found higher credit limit + more banks throwing themselves over you.

And if you have a driving licence, you need to get a new one.

Welcome to Singapore !
