PR approval chance in 2020

Post by sanji_hao » Thu, 06 Feb 2020 10:12 pm

Hi everyone! Fyi I plan to apply for PR after the tax assessment this year. I have been working in Singapore for more than one year and would like to try my chances. Unfortunately I do not have any family tie here. I also understand that this year is election year so the outcome can be quite uncertain :???: . Some details:

Age : 27
Race : Malaysian Chinese
Gender : Male
Marital Status : Single
Religion : Buddhist
Education : Master, one of the top 2 universities in UK
Current Field of Work : Investment
Length of stay : 1 year 2 months
No of tax return : Because I only work for 1 month + in 2018 so I wasn't taxed in 2019, but I do filed for tax return at that time.
Salary : Basic 60k+ ; Gross 90k+ with bonus
Pass : EP

I am quite new to this forum, would be really grateful for any help or guidance :D

50-50 chance.

If rejected it will be mostly due to residential requirement, in this case wait for 1.5 years and apply again. You will get it.

I see. Thanks so much for your help, I guess I will wait longer for a higher chance of approval :)

Two consecutive years of employment (24 consecutive months) or three tax assessments (will be at least or more than 24 months of consecutive employment but spread across three tax years) and at least one EP renewal (initial EPs are usually 24 months). ;-)
