Possibly a decent chance IF you wait until around April/May of 2020. e.g., after you have 3 tax assessments or 2 full years of consecutive employment - which unless you start on 1 Jan, would have to entail portions of 3 calendar years.

Going to school here doesn't help too much (it got you the EP quals already) nor does the DP. However, you did manage to get the degree but more importantly and probably, to be honest, is your current employment and dealing in Cyber Security which as you can see, the government here is in bad need of specialists in this area. If you apply now, the odds are you will be initially rejected and possibly asked to wait until you have work for two years. But at the same time with your speciality you could buck the trend. So If you want to give it a go, by all means, do so, but if rejected, then wait until my original suggestion to reapply.

Good Luck.

Same view as SMS

Did your parents ever apply for PR while they were on EP?

Thanks SMS.

@sgflyer, nope, they didn't. My parents went back but I stayed in SG.
