It also varies from approval to rejection. The request for documentation does not indicate a positive or negative. It is what it is.

Query: Do we get email/SMS notification on PR application status change? It's 12th month since application pending and I am sick of daily login in myICA to check the status. Kindly share the experience of recently approved applications.
I waited 13 months before a response came asking for documentation. They send via email. I didn't get a post requesting the same, only email.

Anyone has experience how long this process takes after document submission?
Varies from 1-6 months
Thanks!!

as per previous conversations, it takes 1 years either for approval, additional documents or rejection!!! (applicable only for Non-Malaysian Nationals)
the wait time is going to kill everyone who has applied hoping everyday for a new beginning.
all the best everyone, let this year be yours.
2020 :-)

First day of the year 2020 (01 Jan 2020), submitted the PR application .. I know nobody know the chances of approval, but just to share our profile:

Applied as family:
Both more than 12 years in Singapore
Wife: 80k++/year , bachelor degree + specialist diploma (local school), healthcare industry, worked with same company for 12+ years.
husband: ~80k/year, bachelor, engineering industry, latest company worked for ~9 years.
Applied with 1 son.

Art of waiting kicks in .. 4~6 months as per ICA.

4-6 months for an approval is rare these days, unless you’re from across the Causeway and ethnically Chinese.

You provided a fair bit of background info about yourselves, save for the most important ones, i.e. nationality and race.

PR is seen as the stepping stone to citizenship. So ability to integrate and racial composition are key.

Thanks. This application not our first time though.
Applied once when we are not married -- both rejected.
Once after we get married + son -- rejected.

This time finger crossed, it's under the grace and faith!

Why have you put the same info in 2-3 threads and also created a new thread?

Maybe OP thought the more s/he posts, the higher the chance of approval. Like buying and winning Toto Image

Which country are you from and ethnicity? The question that you’ve been dodging.

I reckon Cupido is from the 'peens, and if I'm correct, he will probably have rough time getting an approval. Having said that, the only really positive thing in his favour is his wife is in the health industry, but again, depends on what her speciality is. If she is in the nursing areana then it will definitely be an asset, but whether or not it will be enough I don't know.
