Hi forum viewers. This is Anand currently working as a head chef in Epass. My wife is in dependent pass do admin work.

I came Singapore for studies. I completed my bachelor degree here for 2years. then I got a job here. I worked as a chef for 1.6years in Spass. i went back India for 6 months for my marriage. I came Singapore back with my wife.

currently i draws salary around 6k per month. my wife salary is around 500 per month. We are working here more than 6 months. we filed our taxes for 6 months. we like to apply Singaporean PR.

Can any one suggest me if I apply PR within 6 month, will it affect my chances of getting PR?

What is your rush? The ICA used to ask for 3 years worth of tax assessments; they don't do that anymore, they just look at IRAS directly.

Six months of employment, low salaries, and non-technical jobs... I don't think your chances are very good at all.

But, if will only cost you $100 to find out if I am wrong. Be aware, though, that some people receive rejection letters that state, "You are welcome to continue working on your existing passes...". It means that they don't want to consider you in the future.

No one knows for sure why some people get these rejection letters, while others get letters that invite/allow them to apply again in the future.

No chance. Chef falls smack into the middle of professions being protected for Singaporeans (unless it's a high end chef I guess but you sound like a slop cook so.....).

No soup for you!
Arrested? Lawyer Up
International School job? School website or
School advice? Avoid for profit schools
Tax advice? CPA
Pay me $5k for 100% success filling in PR form!
