Hi All,

just want to sharing my experience of PR application.

I've heard a lot factors might cause the PR get rejected or approved, but don't know what factors really affected. (stable job, education, race, country of origin, certain amount of money etc)

I am Indonesian (chinese), but I can't speak chinese at all. :D
I never study or work in Singapore, currently I working in Batam, my salary convert to SGD is only about $1,500/month. I coming back SG only for weekend or sometime twice a month.
My education : degree

Nov'15 : I married with local singaporean
Feb'16 : my 1st LTVP
Jan'17 : my 2nd year LTVP (renewal), at the same year I tried to apply PR.
May"17 : 1st apply PR

I waited for the approval so long and almost give up, so I renewed my LTVP again in Jan'18 coz my 2nd LTVP expire Jan'18, after renew, my PR get approved in Feb'18.

so waiting time about almost 9 months for my PR.

I guess I just lucky to get the PR ? or anyone know why they give the PR.

I suggest to @liupeng just wait and don't think too much about the PR, whatever the background and current situation, no one know what factor can guarantee 100% get approval.
according to my case, I working in Batam, so I never been staying in singapore more than 1 week straight. coming back sg only on the weekend, and they still approved my PR.
no study in SG, no working in SG, not yet have kids, and my husband not a big tauke :D

good luck for you!

Imo luck does not do anything here. You will your PR if:
- you are of a favorable race, i.e. chinese malaysian/indonesian
- you married a Singaporean and had a kid with your spouse
If you are in one of that two categories, you will get it in 1 to 3 tries.

The other factors (i.e. salary/profession/year of stay) do not matter.

Not really. I am indonesian but my race is not chinese. Yes im married and have a kid but not married singaporean, just SPR.
Even i didnt stay in singapore anymore the past 2.5 years. I stay in Batam. Went to singapore only once a month. My hubby only stay in SG on weekdays for working. And i got approved, the reason only ica officer and god knows.
Maybe because hes been PR for 10 years? Or because his cpf? And we’ve been married for long time so ica think we not married just for the sake of PR. But in the end we just can assume. The answer only ica officer knows.
I applied first time after got married 2010 and got rejected. Then applied again 2014 with my baby, rejected. Then I try again sept last year and got approved now. Three times lucky?

Duration of stay in Singapore and Salary matters if someone applies for PR through the PTS Scheme.

Sorry to ask but yo are guy/lady?
From we all know regardless your salary, education, duration of stay, Malaysian Chinese is a no question to get a PR here.. This happen to not only one or two of my relatives/colleague but a lot.. So its a no wonder u will get approved tho u stay for so short 1.5 years only
I have been here for over a decade (studying and working) yet stil get rejected
