PR application pending - second time

Post by yeqimin » Thu, 06 Dec 2018 3:45 pm

I have been in singapore for 4 years now, not sure what are my chances of getting PR approved the 2nd time around.

Last time I applied was 2 years ago and got rejected after 2 months. I got some friends who are here for just 3 years yet they got their PR approved.

Not much info about your background/profile - nationality/race, profession, age, income, etc to comment

Decent profile actually, in terms of age, profession and income level. Gender wise probably female would have been preferred. Your nationality is the biggest hinderance. By any chance you’re are Filipino of Chinese ethnicity?

That said, no harm giving it another try since you have been here for 4 years and would have at least 3 years of tax assessment by now. You stand to lose the $100 in the worst case scenario.

The officers have all gone for the Xmas & New Year holidays, no more approvals until 2019.

Bakulii, English isn't their 1st Language so sarcasm may well be lost on them. Give them two years in Singapore and they'll be dispensing it as well, but not yet. ;-)

You weren't kidding. my friend's colleagues' application was approved in the first week in 2019. Maybe the holidays helped Image

Or it could mean you are closer to finding out the outcome than 6 months ago
