Not going to be easy. Low chance.

1. Ethnicity
2. There are a lot of local residents in IT Sales and so it is not a job scope in demand in SG
3. If you would have studied in a local uni with a bond, you might have some minor advantage.
4. Fixed salary on the lower side.

Chance will be less than 10% unless you WORK in SG for 4-5 years, also complete your service obligation and show increase in your salary. 53K is on the slightly lower side.

Almost will not fly.

Married for less than 2 years.

Wife’s job nature and income is not sufficient to sponsor your application.

And your nationality / ethnicity is also not in your favour.

Thanks for the info. Noted on the salary bit. A few follow up questions here-

1. If I were to switch jobs soon after completing 2 years in my current one, does it hurt my chances?

2. Does the current situation (COVID, economy etc) have any impact?

Thanks again.

1. Does not hurt much if you get a better position and salary
2. things MAY slow down a bit based on the current economy

Length of stay and education will be OK

But Ethinicity and Salary may be on the negative side.

But what is your role in the pharma company?
