1. First ask your brother in law to apply alone for PR as if I am not wrong workpermit holders cannot apply for PR. Once he gets approved let your sister convert into LTVP, then after a few years to PR
2. Family ties matter most only if the relation is a SC, SPR or LTVP. It does not matter if the relative is an employment/work pass holder
Hi, can you confirm? So my brother in law should apply alone first right?
Please re-read what I have written. It is clear
You said if you are not mistaken. What would be the proper way for me to ask “so can you confirm”?

You were already given a clear response. It would be more proper if you take the initiative to do your own research rather than asking for someone else to confirm for you.

Hi Guys,

Thanks to SMS, SF and others for patiently helping clear doubts of noobs like me.

We are planning to apply for PR with my wife as the primary applicant as I am on DP. Our profile

Race: Indian :-|
Age: 30 (Both of us)
Married for 5 years, no kids yet

Wife details:
EP holder, MNC Bank in IT, Salary 85k. Worked on DP 2 years and now on EP for the past 2 years.
Qualification: Masters from NUS, Bachelors from IIT
Total stay in SG 5 years, 1 year Masters and 4 years working

My details:
I worked on EP for 3.5 years for a local firm in Oil and Gas sector before I went back to India for my MBA. Currently, I have DP but I work for a MNC in India as a management consultant. I work remotely half time based in Singapore. Salary ~60k SGD. I also have masters and bachelors from IIT apart from MBA. I am actively looking for jobs to move back to Singapore.

I believe we have a peculiar case as I worked on EP, left SG and came back on DP but working with MNC in India. Wanted to check how good are our chances and if we should apply now or wait till I get a job in SG.

We had applied with me on EP and wife on DP a couple of years ago when my salary was 60k and were rejected. Will this have any impact on our application?

Thanks in advance :)

Anything in specific hurting our chances and anything we can improve that might help increase the chance?

You started by thanking SMS and SF for their inputs on this board so I assumed you would have gone through some of them to know why I arrived at conclusion above.

Your nationality and race, you not being physically here and gainfully employed here. Your wife’s pay and field of work are just average and will not contribute much to your chances.

Thanks for that and yes, I assumed the same. Only thing I thought in our favor is my wife's master's from NUS. I think the best way for us is to wait for me to get a good job here and hope my wife gets a good hike soon :P

I am also worried about me leaving SG for an year when I did my MBA which might look bad :(

Anyways, thanks a lot for your inputs and appreciate the work by all the contributors on this forum.

Negatives
1. Ethinicity
2. You (DP) dont pay tax in SG
3. You have left SG in the middle once
4. Your wife's salary is not on the higher side.

Positives
1. Her local degree and also her education from IIT

It has been over four years since I last posted...not exactly active :)

However, finally received acceptance on PR after four attempts - yay!

Some background for those interested. I have been living in Singapore for eight years with wife (not working) and two daughters (both lucky enough to get into local schools) - all they remember/know is Singapore!

I am British caucasian (46 yrs old), work in finance, high salary. Eight month wait from application to getting acceptance notice. I waited two years from last rejection before applying again.

Now just getting material to finalise everything.

One less thing to worry about :)

-- Too short stay in Singapore.
-- Wait for 2 more years and then apply. You will have a chance of 60 -65% then

60:40

Salary, duration, education all above average (only liability is race which you already know about). Good Luck. If not for Singapore's demographic policies, I'd say 75:25.
