Thanks all, really useful input.

Sounds like it’s worth trying at least - and not much variation in risk of this year versus next years, as odds small either way.

I would be putting my girls on my application.

As regards the propert point, it is private I’ve been looking into - but the tax is a real killer when not PR.
Will you settle in SG permanently?

I think you’ll need to wait for another year at least before you stand a decent chance. You may apply now but ICA may sit on it until such point you’ve been here long enough and ‘proven’ yourself.

Having an SC wife and child, and extended families is definitely a plus.
Thank you Jamie9vardy. Appreciate your help.

Married for 2 years and living in Singapore for 1 year.
You can go ahead and apply. Will get it this time or next time.

Also this is a PR thread. Why did you post your SC question here?
Sorry if I wasn’t clear. This is for my PR application. I am on LTVP+

Hi, I am new to this forum and was looking for some advices online too. And happened to see the people here are very helpful! Would appreciated if someone could help to get my profile evaluated. I am in the midst of waiting for the outcome of my PR application submitted in Dec 2019.

Age : 24
Race : Malaysian Chinese
Gender : Female
Marital Status : Single
Education : Diploma in nursing (Singapore’s Polytechinic under scholarship sponsored by MOH with 6 years of bond after graduated from diploma)
Also taken MOE tuition grant for the diploma course, and there are 3 years of obligation to work in Singapore
Job : Registered Nurse in restructured hospital
Length of stay in SG: 5 years (included 3 years of study)
Salary :40k
Pass : EP

Recently been offered a placement in National University of Singapore (NUS) for 3 years of part time degree study and in the midst of applying MOE tuition grant for the degree course.
Please apply and you will get it
Will appreciated if someone can tell that if marrying a SC must apply SC for myself or I can still be approved as PR?

And heard that married to a SC guaranteed a 100% approved SC for that applicant too?

Wait, let me understand what you’re trying to ask.

Based on your first post, you’ve already applied for PR in Dec’19, presumably under PTS scheme. Once approved, you will be a PR.

Now you’re talking about marrying an SC. If you are already a PR before marrying an SC, marriage doesn’t change anything, you'll remain a PR. If your PR application is still pending when get married, then update ICA of your marital status accordingly.

Now let’s talk about SC application. You are only eligible to apply for SC after 2 years of being a PR. You have the option of applying on your own merits under the PTS scheme or you can wait until 2 years of marriage to have your spouse sponsoring you under the family tie scheme. With your profile (especially nationality and ethnicity), application under spouse sponsorship is almost a guarantee, more so if you have got a kid along the way.

Thank you for the your patience and the reply.

Yes, I’ve applied for PR in Dec ‘19 and still pending.

Just an additional question as in case I’ve got my PR application rejected, and I got married to my current partner who is a SC.
Then just see if I can get my spouse (if married) to sponsor me for the PR application.

If your current application is rejected and wish to have your spouse-to-be sponsoring you for PR after marriage then the general advice is wait for at least 2 years after marriage, as anything before that may be perceived as marriage of convenience to gain residency status.

Better option is for you to re-apply on your own merits if there are significant improvements to your profile, such as career progression, pay rise, education, certification, etc. before the said 2 years.

But as what SF said, you stand a good chance, just need to be patient.

Will take in both of your advices, thank you Singapore Flyer and Jamie9vardy.
Hope that it could be a positive news, as the PR application waiting time could be further lengthen due to current COVID situation.

Too early to apply. So chance will be low

Dear Admins

Please advise my PR success chances:
Age : 42
Race : Indian (Tamil)
Gender : Male
Marital Status : Married, 2 kids - 12 and 16 (only I'm applying, wife and kids have DPs but live in India)
Religion : Hindu
Education : PGDBA + Masters in Psychology (ordinary business school / University, Masters marks cards available clearly showing 'pass first class' but certificate misplaced)
Current job and Field of Work : HR Director for multinational in air conditioning company - venerable brand
Length of stay in Singapore : 2 Year 4 Months
No of tax return : 2019 & 2020 assessments completed
Salary: base 250k, fixed allowances 24k, bonus ~50k
Pass : EP (2nd renewal was in 2019, got 36 months)
Volunteering work: Rotary Club in India (Honorary International Director), lots of charity donations both big and small. But nothing major.
Local assimilation: member of toastmasters club (Honorary Director from June'20), life member in an old cultural association, NLB membership, etc... Don't know if any of this will count.

Wife's educational certificates some missing ... She has her graduation certificate but no marks cards, PHD for which certificate and marks transcripts both available but granting University is kind of no-name. Anyway she's not applying but need to submit her certificates as part of annuxures. Worried if it will affect my chances. Also as I'm applying solo without family, would it affect chances?

Chance will be very low

Reason
1. Ethnicity
2. Age
3. Not applying as a family
4. Job MAY be easily filled by local residents

The reasons I told above are mostly not changeable, except for one thing where you can apply as a family. But because of the other reasons listed above, your chance would still be very low. Anyway, pls wait for SMS to advise.

I'm surprised you got an EP frankly as HRM is reserved normally for locals.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!
