Hi all,

Been reading for a while and will appreciate if anyone can help to assess my chance for PR:

Nationality: Chinese Indonesian
Gender: Female
Age : 29
Education : Diploma from SG local private institute (graduated 2011), currently taking part time undergraduate (completing in Jan 2021) in SG private institution
Job title/industry : manager in hospitality industry
Annual salary: $36K
Studied diploma here from 2009-2011, and been working in SG since 2012 (hospitality industry)
Applied twice before ,2015 and 2019.

Thanks in advance!
Apologies if I made some mistake in posting in forum :-)
Chance will be low.
I agree with SF’s assessment. And will add on some points:

+ve - being Indonesian Chinese, have been here for >10 years, studied and work here

-ve - income level a tad too low, to make it worse, being in hospitality, one of the hardest hit industries during this crisis and 2 prior rejections.

Increase in your income level and completing your undergrad studies may help to some extent.

I’m not suggesting a marriage of convenience for the sake of gaining PR here (I need to stress that). But you may have a better chance at it through spousal sponsorship route, if you’re married to a Singaporean or at least a Malaysian or fellow Indonesian Chinese, who is already a PR i.e. Sinking roots, forming a family cluster.

Chance looks low, but you may still have a small chance because of the local PHF education of your spouse. Spouse works in IT division of a chemistry company? What is the designation?

Thank you very much for your reply.

She is Data Scientist Lead, same as me, we both work on AI projects.

Would it be better if she is the main applicant?

Issue may be the quota for ethnicity. Yes, she can be the main applicant and try. Also apply after atleast 2 years of marriage and not before that.

Quite good as very few apply under Malay quota. Also family ties scheme but your husbands occupation and salary are negatives. Regardless I think you might get in due to race.
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!

My PR application is stuck on Pending for over 6 months. Are they approving any applications right now, or has anyone heard of anyone who got approved recently? It's been quite long and I have not heard anything from them so I'm concerned.

How much information have you provided to us to analyze or consider? nothing about ur education, work, etc

In anycase even based on what you have said, your chance is going to be very low.
