Wanna get a quick advise on my application as i am getting ready to submit next week.

My application has been rejected more than 5 times since 2009.

I have made a lot of progress since i got here and now i am running my company with a local parter in marine industry, providing marine inspection services. We have employed mostly locals for the jobs.

personal background:

country of birth : Pakistan
Negative
Qualification: MBA - Finance
Negative unless from the west. (Onsite-not by mail/online) or SG.
current salary: 10K excluding bonus
Positive
participating in voluntary work
Null Factor
My Fiancee is Singaporean Chinese
Null Factor

I really wanna give it my best shot and we are planning to get a house and it will make things a lot easier for us and we wont have to look for private property.

Appreciate all the good suggestions, application wise, extra documents etc

Thank you.
Honestly speaking, if I may, I only see two positives, two negatives and twos of no consequence. I'm guessing your application will look much the same as before, truth be known. I do wish you luck however and would appreciate it if you would keep us informed of the outcome, regardless of the outcome.

haha, guess thats the last resort. Thank you!

I am still submitting my application since i have taken an appointment and give it a shot. shall keep you guys posted and keep following this forum closely!

have a nice day
In today's Singapore, it shouldn't be last resort unless you have no plan to marry her ...

In case I missed it, what's your key selling point for ICA ?

As a spouse of SC, you can go after ICA.. Which as a boyfriend you can't

I really do not understand the thinking of the ICA. You are running a successful business. You are employing locals. Your business extends beyond Singapore, giving it stability. To me, you are exactly what the gahmen ought to be looking for... a skilled businessman building a business that hires locals.

Instead, it seems that if you are Chinese Malaysian with a grade school education, you are the desirable one... Ah Beng's over Pakistani's... makes me wonder what the ICA really thinks a desirable PR is.

The govt is doing the right thing, trying to strike a balance between what's good for the country and what's needed to win the next election :D

Actually that is a really good mix. Isn't it hard to employ Singaporeans?
