Me

My wife is the main applicant. What are the odds? :S

Thanks

She's been here 3 years, you 9 months... so you haven't been married very long or you have mostly been out of country. How long have you held an employment pass? Where was your physical address of residence prior to 9 months ago. And what is your race/nationality?

I don't see it happening... your wife has met minimum stay requirements, you have not. Salaries are on the low side. And I think the gahmen will take a wait and see attitude as to whether or not you are a "real" family unit with Singapore staying power before granting PR.

If it fails wait for 3 tax assessments and re-apply. Alternatively reapply if major circumstances change (job, salary, children, education).
