Besides all that SF and PNGMK have mentioned, the biggest hindrance I see is the fact that your wife and children are holding passes that are not applicable to them, DP are meant for those that are accompanying the EP hold here in Singapore. The fact that they are living in India and you have seen fit not to include them, doesn't look well on an application. Volunteering no longer contributes to anything as ICA has seen through the ruse to the that it has nil effect and possibly negative effect based on the abuse that has been perpetuated over the years. I think the outcome is likely to be negative based on the family issue.

Thank you. Understand and appreciate the logic. Still plan to try for what it's worth.

One question: Would changing over to a PEP improve chances?

Considering all other info he has given, In his case, it wont make a difference to make the application positive even if he applies as a family.

True, but if either of his children are male, and he's keeping them in India on Dependent Passes and he is applying on his own, his chances are zero.

If based solely on nationality, chances are not great. Is there an official document to prove your ethnicity such as birth certificate or register?

MBA obtained from?

Have you applied PR before?

Thanks for the reply. I have my birth certificate but it doesn't say my ethnicity. Only can tell by my last name.

My MBA was obtained from National Cheng Chi University- Taiwan.

I haven't applied for PR before too.

I think the part about birth cert and having a Chinese last name are common for Filipino and ICA may have seen enough of such applicants. However, I’m not sure if they require an official paper to classify you as Chinese.

I reckon you’re fluent in Mandarin having obtained your MBA from Taiwan.

With this additional info you’ve provided, I think your chances are better than I originally assessed but by how much is not something I can tell. Maybe it’s really a 50-50 case.

You may try applying now, just prepare for a long ride and manage your expectations.

That's true. I did also submit my Chinese language proficiency exam results too, so hopefully that will help a bit. Let's see then. Thank you for your input! :)
