My chance to apply for PR

Postby coldman519 » Mon, 22 Jan 2018 3:49 pm

Hi all,

Could you please help me assess my chance to get Singapore PR?

Me - Taiwanese, 24 yrs, came to sg from Jul 2017, now studying PhD at NUS.

My wife - SC, 23 yrs, just graduated from NUS and still finding a job.

We got married in July 2017, and I applied for PR in Nov. 2017, so it's only 4 months from the marriage. I know it's recommended that applying after 3 yrs, but still hope to try. I also submitted other somewhat achievements record but don't know it matters or not: a) having published some papers, b) studied at the University of Tokyo for 1 year, c) be good at Mandarin, English and Japanese

Any advice?
Thank you.

Too early. You need to be fully working or should have completed your PHD

Yeah I do know I had better apply after graduation, but it takes 4-5 years to graduate... I just felt since I am qualified to apply for PR (supported by my SC wife), I just tried it. Also I heard that government just started to let students apply for PR, while it's not my case, but it's somewhat telling students have chance to get PR?

If you read carefully, they want students who have passed one of the local national level exams.

Did you apply for PR under the PTS Scheme? Or via your Spouse Sponsorship?

Even for spouse sponsorship, they look at the stability of the marriage. If it has been just a few months, it will not be enough for PR

I applied via spouse sponsorship. Yeah, so maybe what I can do now is just pray and if finally rejected, wait for 1-3 years then apply again? Thanks!

Wait for at least 2 years or have a kid and then re-apply
