Yes, you got the point.
Hi, been following the forum for a while and really appreciate all the insights on PR topics.

We have a super similar profile to novaandbong (nationality education work length of stay etc), submitted application in Sep 2019 as a unit (higher earner as main). Status now is still pending.

Any idea what is going on in ICA’s mind :)
Application was approved recently. Looks like we managed to overcome the unchangeable!
Congratulations!!!!

Hi, I am a Singaporean male and I am applying for PR for my wife for the 2nd time. Since we are new to this, I would like to seek some general opinion on the chances of PR approval. We applied the first time in June 2019 but was rejected, which I kind of understand as we were married for only 2 months at the time and she did not have LTVP then. Now we have been married for 1 year 5 months and she also got her LTVP approved last July

My stats:
Age: 25
Nationality: Singaporean Chinese
Religion: None
Education: Currently fourth-year in NUS, one of the top students and also with secure doctorate positions at a top 10 school in the USA.
Salary: 1.2K stipend per month (scholarship)

My wife's stats:
Age: 25
Race: Vietnamese
Religion: None
Education: Bachelor's degree from the USA, currently second-year master's student in the USA
Current field of work: Essential healthcare field
Length of stay: ~6 months for now
Salary: None
Pass: LTVP
She has been doing internship at SGH.

Any comments on the chance of approval will greatly be appreciated. I also have a concern about my salary. Although I am not working yet, I have stipend and we are both living with our parents for now. I also mentioned that to ICA when applying for LTVP and it was approved eventually. Do you guys think the same situation will hold for PR application? Thank you very much

You sponsoring him or he’s applying himself through PTS?

If it’s through your sponsorship - low. Until you’ve been married for at least 2 years.

We are not sure which way is better

I know that Indians in general have very low chance if they apply on PTS. so thinking if my sponsorship will help.

Once you have been married >2 years I would think it would fly. However if you apply now, all the signs point to the negative. While his income is high, the financial industry (which would also include investment devices and the IT that accompanies them) is in a rocky position and will be as the pandemic go on. If he is on PEP, then he's got a deadline there as well that is not renewable (other than trying to get back on an EP after the 3 years have expired). Take those two variables and couple that with a 'new' marriage of only 6 months may very well signal a possible marriage of convenience.

I concur with Jamie9vardy that his chances are very low until you have been married at least 2 years (or you produce offspring via this union). When does his PEP expire?

Don’t think it’s going to work, having been married for just 6 months. The general view is that you need to be married for 2 years.

Your sponsor’s income level is on the lower side.

Your nationality maybe a slight disadvantage if taken into consideration.

"Marriage Jan 2020"
If you do a search around the forums, you would have gleaned a few key points that are against your case.

1. Ethnic Quotas
2. Marriage of Convenience

You can't change pt 1.
Pt 2 is a test of time. Wait till 2022/23 season?

When was the break?
Once break, it will reset to 0. Previous stay not counted.

Thank you so much for your replies. I wish I’d seen this forum earlier. Hoping against hope!

The break was between mid 2017 and mid 2018

What is your spouse's ethnicity? Are they working?
What industry are you/they in?

Assuming you are married for atleast 2 years, apply as a family and see. Chance is low, but you may have a small chance because of the ethnicity and length of stay in SG.
