Hi, I'm in need of advice and have scoured this forum. Figured it was best to put my info out there, rather than try to make sense of the crazy formula that is PR approval.

I will be marrying a SC in 2021, but also will leave my current position and lose my EP around mid-2021. I'm unsure whether to try for PR now as a single, or just wait and try once we're married (which would mean I get an LTVP, which I don't think is too difficult, right?)

Age: 40
Gender: female
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Citizenship: American
length of time in SG: 10 years
SG tax filing: 9 years
Occupation: Education (secondary International School level)
Length of time with employer: 10 years
Salary: 5k+/month
Experience: 14 years
Highest education: bachelors in science, US teaching certificate, and 18 hours grad credit

What nationality... that has some bearing. My view is you will get it although your wife income a bit low and you are in a non essential occupation.
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!

Oh this is an interesting one (I'm a PR and my wife works in an international school). Why do you lose your EP? Is the job going away? Firstly there are potential issues around getting a new EP in a new school (due to increase in salary requirements) and second you will lose your expat benefits once you marry a SPR or SC. I would apply once married for PR. In the meantime having a LTVP+ will help employers put you on in a time when I think they will be struggling to secure EP's so this is an advantage. Unfortunately your age and race and nationality work against you for PR though. IF you can manage to have a SC child it will help.

Apply and see 20% chance since you did your degrees here and salary has increased.

Engaged to SPR does not make any difference for you to apply under PTS.

Yeah, that's kind of what I expected. I'd never really considered PR for that reason, but things have changed. I'm voluntarily giving up my EP to take some time off and explore other areas. I will lose my benefits, and have little chance of ever going back to an EP...but that also says how much I value a professional change for now. But, I'm also committed and invested in SG longterm, so trying to navigate the visa situation in the best possible way for our future. Once we'd made the decision for me to take some time off, it opened up the PR option and wasn't sure what would be best in terms of timing. I didn't know if I applied as a single and was rejected, if it would reflect poorly when I re-apply as married (marriage of convenience situation...but that also seems silly given my nationality, I think? But I don't understand how to make sense of this process.) Appreciate the advice

Hi there!
Can any kind souls help with assessing my chances?

Sponsor
Age : 31
Nationality: Singaporean Chinese
Gender : Female
Marital Status : Married (1 month)
Education : Bachelor degree (NUS)
Job : Application specialist (Medical lab devices)
Salary : 52k Basic

Applicant (spouse)
Age : 33

Marital Status : Married (1 month)
Education : SPM
Job : Construction works supervisor
Length of stay in SG: 1 year for the current job, past 9 years shuffling between Singapore and malaysia

I might have been too anxious to apply for PR right after getting married, as we wanted to get a HDB with grants as soon as we can. But I would like to know your opinions on the success rate, given the current covid situation.

BTW We just applied a few days back.

Thanks in advance :)

You will have only a good chance for his PR, after 2 years of marriage. 1 month of marriage, chance will be close to nil.
