I reckon, if you are married at least 2 years, you are a shoe-in. Else you might have to reapply one more time after you pass your 2nd anniversary. But seriously, I don't think you will have too much trouble.

Too early to apply. Very likely may be rejected and if you reapply after 2 years will be approved.

Why are you in a rush for PR? You can still work on your S Pass or get a Long Term Pass to work?

Almost 100% Guarantee you will get PR in the future unless something unforseen happens, so I wouldn't be too stressed if I was you.

Folk are commenting on your initial application , spousal sponsor less than 2 years is normally no , with a note from Govt saying , wait X amount of time and reapply for folk in your position as a Malaysian citizen.

Have you applied under the PTS system before?

This is one reason they would not approve upfront. Secondly, they have a 3 years waiting period after PR before you are eligible to buy HDB in the resale market

Neither your wife , nor yourself should you get PR would be eligible to buy.

Its 3yrs from approval , so if you buying as a couple its 2021 probably when you will be eligible
