Just applied on the 5th of December after getting 6 consecutive months of payslips...

Age: 25
Natiionality: Indonesian
Race: Chinese
Gender: Male
Marital Status: Single
Education: Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering) from NTU, obtained in 2018
Job: Chemist
Length of Stay: Since 2008, did both my O and A-levels in a local secondary school and JC
Salary: $3500/month
Pass: Employment Pass (Yes, despite not meeting the salary threshold... because there seems to be an unspoken rule that makes EP criterion more lenient for NUS/NTU graduates as we usually have a 3 year Tuition Grant bond to fulfill)

I would normally not be concerned as local university graduates are usually a shoo-in to get PR... except for a few concerning factors, basically bad things happened during NTU and consequently my grades there were terrible (I graduated only with a pass degree and a CGPA of 2.78/5.00) and also the fact I had two previous jobs after graduating in 2018... Company A from Sept 2018 to Apr 2019 ($2500/month) and Company B from Oct 2019 to Mar 2020 ($3000/month), both also working as a chemist on EPs, with me remaining in SG on an LTVP during my unemployment stints to remain here and look for a job to fulfill my Tuition Grant obligations, before my current company from May 2020 to the present... I left the first job because it was a startup and they ran out of money and couldn’t pay my salary, and I left my second job because I was retrenched due to COVID-19

Just somewhat concerned ICA will not look at my degree transcripts favorably or more importantly me having 2 previous jobs only for a short period... they don’t know the reasons behind me leaving so it might raise some questions :s My current job is more stable and finally allowed me to apply for PR the first time (I would have done so 2 years ago if it wasn’t for my job situation) and I would normally not be concerned if it weren’t for these few factors

How long are you in the current job? show stability of income for 2 years and then apply for PR. You will then have a chance.

Since May 2020... although pretty much all the foreign students from NTU/NUS I know applied for PR as soon as they got 6 months of pay slips and they all got their PRs approved 🤔 The process appears a lot more streamlined if you your degree is from NTU/NUS instead of abroad... just that in my case, I have been switching jobs due to situations out of my control and I didn't apply for PR in my first job unlike them and that is the only thing which I'm concerned about, along with my uninspiring grades on my bachelor degree transcripts

EDIT: Oops, forgot to mention my nationality... Indonesian, so I'm Indo-Chinese and not a PRC national 😅

Age : 27
Race : Chinese
Nationality: Malaysian
Gender : Female
Marital Status : Married to SC (ROM end of Nov 2020)
Education : Bachelor (Hons) of Acct & Finance, currently pursuing CPA Aus (one paper left)
Job : Auditor (small firm)
Length of stay : 1.5 years
Salary :3k /mth
Pass: EP

Hi there, would appreciate if fellow forum mates may evaluate my chances.
Also, is it compulsory to include

A9. Employer’s letter stating the date of employment, position held, salary per month for the last 6 months with breakdown into basic, overtime and allowance per month. The letter, addressed to the Controller of Immigration, should be dated within 1 month from the date of submission.

in the application if I apply under spouse scheme with my husband as sponsor?

Am afraid my boss would require me to sign one year bond for the letter (which i wouldn't want), and I've also heard that bosses are not allowed to not sign the letter but i couldn't find any statements/rule from MOM to support the "hearsay". Any enlightenment on this front?

Many thanks in advance.

If you apply under SC sponsorship, you wont need the letter. If ICA asks for the letter you can explain in writing that your employer is asking for 1 year bond. Also, note if you apply now under SC sponsorship, chance is very less as 2 years of marriage is not yet completed.

Thanks for the input @singaporeflyer.

Really? cause we intend to buy a home and move out from the husband's parents palce soon (but without PR, we are unable to do so) :(

Cant imagine having to wait 2 years to get PR and another 2-3 years waiting for out BTO.

How do we even let ICA know that we intend to set up our family lol

2 words.

Sham marriages.

It’s to mitigate that. Anyway BTO is not 3 years anymore. That’s pre covid.

In the post covid world, 5-7 is the new norm.
That why resales are brisk.
Coupled with super low interest rates.

However genuine the marriage is, you still need to wait for atleast 2 years or till you have a kid for PR under sponsorship.

If the PR is obtained via the spouse scheme shouldn’t the PR be revoked incase there is a divorce? This would definitely deter the sham marriages .

Should the children of the divorce be penalized in the case of a divorce. Children will be SGC due to one spouse being SGC. Revoking PR would amount to discrimination against Singaporeans (The children) who probably have no say in the divorce in the first place. They still have a mother and father. revoking PR will be tantamount to depriving the children of one of their parents.

Hi.. i am indonesian chinese..

Applied PR since Aug 2020..
before go through to my details, i am just wondering if anyone know that there is a behaviour on the ePR, if the button of Supporting Document (below the PR status) is gone, means the result will come out soon.. is it correct?

And if the status is still Pending, if we click on “apply PR” again, is it possible to start over again for the application?

Thank you
