Evaluate my options around PR

Post by joev » Wed, 08 Jan 2020 9:46 pm

Dear all,

I am an Indonesian Chinese EP holder currently wondering when to apply for PR. My fiance (female) and I (Indonesian) are planning to get married at Q4 this year in Indonesia and wondering our options to apply for PR.

about me:
age: late 20s
income: above 10k per month
been in Singapore for 7 years (4years study + 3 years working)
NUS graduate

about her:
race: Indonesian Chinese
age: mid 20s
graduated in Indonesia with bachelor degree
visited Singapore few times in the past, each visit lasts over couple days, purpose is of course to visit me.

My aim is to get us both on PR status. What options do you think would be the best?

1. Apply PR after our marriage as a family unit. Temporarily I'll apply for Dependent Pass. For this option, do you think doing separate marriage with ROM will improve our chance to get PR?

2. Apply PR now for me and after our marriage, I'll get her under LTVP and sponsor her afterwards. Would she have high chance to get PR this way?

Unless she resides in Singapore for 2 years and married with you for 2 years, she will not be able to get her PR, even if you manage to get your PR

Go for Option 2 Now or wait and apply via Option 1 after 2 years after marriage along with she being with you in SG.

Another option is for you to apply for PR together after your marriage. Your PR will be assessed based on your profile and her PR result will follow yours.

If they apply for PR immediately after marriage, they usually wont get it, unless they are atleast 2 years married.

i dont think your wife stands a chance for PR ship because she is not eligible on a stand alone basis (i.e she needs to be sponsored by you) and if she's going via the family route, you will need 2 years marriage at least.

meaning then you should focus on your individual application first and foremost. so i'll suggest you should do it now assuming you feel qualified to apply .. cuz you'll have to factor in the waiting game.

Apply now, get married and while you wait for your outcome, at least you\ll be waiting out the marriage period (2 years)
