Me(Indian citizen) and gf(Singaporean) planning to marry in Singapore in Jan 2018. I am currently living in US and gf is Singapore. I used to be in Singapore ( around 6 yrs) until 2015. I got transferred from SG to US branch in the same company at the start of 2016.
I was a tax payer(EP) in sg for 4 years. I studied masters in nus prior to working. I got rejected pr application in 2013 and 2015.

First of all do I have any chances of getting a PR if I apply directly after our marriage ?
Also would it increase by changes if I go through Pre-LTVP -> LTVP -> PR APPLICATION ?
we planned to buy hdb under non citizen spouse scheme as soon as we get married. Does any of this help with PR?

Why not condo ? Buying house, in my honest opinion, don't help zilch.

Yes, don't jump the gun.

Go the LTVP route.

9 out of 10 immediate PRs are rejected with advice to go LTVP+ route. Unless you are a special person.

You can try though.

I haven't looked at condo market. If 4 rm hdb without grant Vs condo 4 rm rate within 100k I might actually. I hate mop 5 yrs for hdb. :(

I agree that MOP is painful. It severely limits the ability of Singaporeans to move locations when their kids move schools or family moves somewhere else. It's a very short sighted policy.

Yeh, but it stops or at least slows down flipping. Something their countrymen were famous for.
