Hi There,
I have decided to move ahead with my application, as I feel it is my wish to put down some roots here, both professionally and personally,

I am currently completing the application, however i do not see any area where i can make a statement of sorts etc.

Is it advisable to attach a separate cover letter or equivelant, stating my direct motivations and personal thoughts on becoming PR?- or would this be seen as attention grabbing/time-wasting/unusual?

I understand from skimming the forums that it was somewhat common practice in the past. however i don't wish to make the reviewers job more tedious unnecessarily
It is not needed. If they didnt ask for it, dont worry too much about it. If they need more info from you they will write in to you asking for it.

But did you realize that you are applying too early for PR? Not even 2 years completed in SG
Thanks for the info!
Yes i understand that my time has been some what short (by the time i apply it will be 16 months living in Singapore).

However i have heard from others, that some people have applied directly after 6 months, and were approved - i am sure their circumstances are completely different to mine.

Also, i would imagine it takes several months (of backlog) to review my application etc. pushing it close to the 2 year mark?

I suppose from an overall view, if i am viewed as a good candidate in the eyes of the government/reviewer, would 8 odd months make a world of difference

I welcome any thoughts as to the repercussions/advantages of doing so
I wont stop you from applying. But please read through the forum and get an idea of WHO get approved within 6-8 months of working in SG. Hope you understand that you fall under the OTHERS category which has around 2-4% quota for PR. From the officers point of view, the question would be What is the RUSH?

thanks for the quick reply,
I understand and agree that i would fall under a slim minority of applications

I think it's fine. If you don't mind rejection, that is. Your predetermined thoughts are already set in concrete so it really doesn't matter what any of us say here. Just go ahead and apply. If you aren't too embarrassed, let us know how it turns out. All you are doing is looking for validation of what you are going to do any way.

We have already given you a wealth of good common sense knowledge gleaned from many man-days of being here in Singapore and also on this forum. Good luck - I feel you will need a pretty large dollop of it.
