Hi all, just wanted to contribute back as I've been a silent reader on some of the posts since I submitted the PR application in 2020. Thought some of the comments were interesting and the feedbacks given by the moderators were quite constructive.

Profile: Male, 27, Malaysian Chinese, have been in Singapore since March 2019, EP holder, changed job once after three months, been with the same employer since August 2019, annual income of S$77k.
I would say - your profile + 2 years of working in SG -> Will easily get PR

COL increase not an issue. No need. Now if you got a 20~25% salary increase, for sure notify them.

@/SF, but when he applied he completed just 1 year in SG. It's common advise here to wait for 2 years before applying?

Malaysian Chinese profile.

A degree and a decent job.

He can be a citizen in 2 years if he chooses to.

(Though quite a lot of msians I know personally are apprehensive and takes a lot of coaxing, common reasons are that they have family inheritance back home etc etc)

He checks the boxes of what the gahmen wants.

Ill agree with what observer said. For certain applicants, it is more easier. For others minimum of 2-3 years work in SG is needed

Hi what are my chances like after i work for one more year? Does being a citizen of a non-ASEAN country affect my chances of PR?

What are you smoking? Your chances are better than a filipino
