I Applied my SPR(Singapore Permanent Application) in Dec '19. I just received the outcome last week (18th June 2020). My application was rejected but there was no direct stated reason for the rejection.
In the official letter reply :
" Thank you for your interest in Singapore Permanent Residence (PR). All SPR applications are assessed holistically under the prevailing criteria, including economic contribution, education qualifications and integration with Singapore society among other things.
We have considered your application, including supporting documents. We regret to inform you that your application is not successful.
Nevertheless, you can continue to work and reside here on your valid Work Pass."
Im an Indian staying in Singapore for 7+ years now.
I did my Masters in Business Administration (Majors Managerial Accounting) here in 2013-2014. And eventually started working after my course.
Graduated in 2014 Feb.
Work Experience: 6 years in Singapore
Profile: Trading Manager - Trader and handling trade/physical gold operations in a Gold company. It is an old local company (30 Years) where i have worked since Apr 2014 - until now.
I have EP pass since Apr 2014 and currently my basic pay is SGD 5300.
I have Socially contributed to the Singapore society by volunteering in an organisation providing food to Old age homes & nursing home. Basically volunteered in a soup kitchen.
I have also done a short term course from SMU academy in 2018 for my growth in the field where i am working.
Im disappointed to know the outcome of my PR application. Do you think i should reapply again after 6 months or wait for an year?
Im really clueless at the moment, what can i do to increase the probability/chances to get my application approved.
Your volunteering work or donation does not carry any weight in getting you PR.
Your nationality and race are not in your favour. Also, your income is on the low side. Not sure how much the Masters you obtained in SG will help.
The reality is even if you re-apply after one year, you are likely to get a rejection, but this time will be after a longer wait as there are backlogs of applications, many of those are from your compatriots. The government is likely to tighten the PR numbers given the economic and job market outlook.
I wish you good luck, you’ll definitely need it.
