Is it one year since you relocate and work here or one year since you applied your pr?

Application was submitted in May-2015 while we were still in HK, and today is exactly one year since the application date.

Then we relocated to SG and I started to work here since end of Jun-2015.

Agree that no particular rush, just for the 2 reasons below.

1. Current lease will end at Jun-2017, so want to buy a resale HDB and move into it before the lease expires.
2. Getting a PR will allow for more flexibility in career options.

Well since you're married to a Singaporean, i suppose you can try LTVP+? no need of those working passes with mountain of requirements, levies, and quotas

Your household can already do that per the Non-Citizen Spouse Scheme.
