PR CHANCES AFTER SOME ADJUSTMENTS FROM LAST POST

Postby jay1979 » Fri, 28 Apr 2017 4:56 pm

Hello !

would like to get some views from the pro's on my current chances.. applying for PR next month .


Nationality - HK - Chinese to be exact. ( Born in HK )
Race : Indian
Age - 38
Self Employed - Managing director of a Trading company ( Exports of foodstuff )
Local Staff : 1
3 Personal Tax NOA's - check
3 Company Tax NOA's - Last two NOA's paid about 45 K in tax each year . Company revenue around 6-7 M a year.
Salary : Gross : 250 K
Married - Wife is an Indian National . Not employed.
- Daughter born here in Singapore ( Also HK passport )
Educational backround - GCSE O Levels - Started working right after Form 5 .

Dealing and buying goods from local singapore companies for re export shipments here in Singapore and got alot of family ties here ( First cousins, uncles, Aunts ) , My grandparents from Singapore - All born and bred here .

Does it help that I have a Hong Kong Passport rather then an Indian one ? What Ive been reading is it's pretty tough to get approvals on Indian passports.

Any views ?

Thanks,
J

As long as the race is Indian, it is going to be tough. But since you are contributing to the Singapore economy via taxes, etc you have a decent chance.

Why are you starting new threads everytime? You had asked the same last year and why didnt you continue on the same thread?

Very good chance I would say. You tick more boxes that a EU/US economic refugee does.

Hi All,

After applying for PR in May this year, I got the dreaded " rejected " status when I checked online today. Waiting to see if the letter has any reasons, but from what Ive been reading, I should get the default "you are welcome to work on your current valid pass etc."

Wife is pregnant , so thats the good news :) Will reapply in the future if any substantial changes , but for now, the only change could be time ( longer I stay the better the chances ) , or If I have a baby boy lol.

Just wanted to give an update.

Cheers and Good luck to those who are waiting !

Maybe you need to hire more local staff? You only have 1 for a $7m turnover company...invest more into Singapore manpower
