Re: Can I straight away apply PR after ROM?

Whethr you ROM or not will not have a lot of bearing on applying for PR. If you come here and marry, you can get a LTVP/LTVP+ and work but it will take another two years for you to be able to apply for PR. Working will also help, but being a Malaysian Chinese baby oven will probably be more advantageous. ;-)

To add one important point, it's highly recommended that you and your fiancé obtain a Pre-Marriage LTVP Assessment (PMLA).

I'm a bit concerned about the limited income causing problems with LTVP approval. However, the PMLA should answer that question for you. If you get a favorable PMLA result, that favorable result is good for a maximum of one year. So it's prudent to apply for a PMLA several months (but not more than 12 months) before you plan to get married. A favorable PMLA result is not an ironclad guarantee of LTVP approval, but it's an extremely auspicious indicator.

I may disagree with your discouraging words there ... of course with no detailed supporting information

They're not meant to be discouraging. Rather the opposite: the PMLA is an excellent service that helps reduce uncertainty for soon-to-be-married international couples.

Yeah, basically the PMLA is a guide whether it's advantageous for a Singaporean to marry a foreigner in the eyes of the money grubbing government. If it looks like could be an asset to the country in one way or the other, then go for it. But if you are marrying for love than prepare to immigrate. This is, of course, Singapore, Inc.
