He will be allowed to submit the application with less than 6 months of payslip. But, whether that matters for the outcome is different.

Yea, that is what I am afraid of. I just wrote an email to them to double confirm.

So you are suggesting that even the officer did't say anything and accept my form submission, but this will reduce the chances of getting PR ?

Maybe...

They could also sit on your application and wait for you to be in employment for a year or 1.5 years then contact you to request for another round of latest 6 months payslips.

We won't know but this has happened before...

just to update. So ICA replied my email, they say I can just proceed to submit my documents, even though don't have 6 months payslip. But they do mentioned I can always submit additional documents after application.

They are reading from a script and are typing the ministry line but probably not the actual interpretation currently being used. Don't be surprised if jamie9vardy's response turns out to be more factual than you want to believe. The Immigration officer probably said yeah, you can submit before you have 6 months pay slips (and under his breath, ...cause is ain't gonna matter until you have been here at least 2 years anyway in reality. Good Luck and I do mean it. You will need a healthy dose of luck I'm afraid.

Just because the ICA says, on their site, that you can apply after 6 months, doesn't mean you will get PR. The government says you can apply after 6 months, it doesn't say you will get it. In practice, this changes depending on directions from the top. Do some research on this board and read some of the relevant threads. 12~18 months waits usually before PR determination and normally rapid rejections if applicant has been here less than 2 years under current internal policy (which we can only guess at). Being on a Dependents pass or a Student's pass doesn't count for squat when it's a PR application. They want to see work history. That's why they say please submit you last 6 months salary vouchers.

OP, I think it's safe to proceed with your current appointment to submit your application. And the fact that you've been here for 6 years and being a Malaysian (Chinese?) will only be a plus.

But what we are telling you is your application may take longer to process as ICA may want to wait and see that you have been gainfully employed for a year or so before giving it to you. After all, you're applying under the economic scheme.

If you monthly salary is above $4000, then you chances for getting PR is high.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Based on what evidence? We have seen people here on 250K/pa and 350K/pa who have been rejected and have been here 5 to 8 years on EPs already. We've also seen M'sians with 1800~2K/mo who have been accepted. Did you just grab that number out of a paper bag? :roll:
