Hi everyone,

Hope experts can give some advise on my PR Application.

I was submitted PR Application 12th Apr 2020. Was pending more than 6 months and received email from ICA yesterday requested additional documents. (Is that mean high chance to get approved?)

Hope you can evaluate of my PR Application (attached with my husband) and our profile as below.

Nationality : Both Malaysian
Age : Me (31) Husband (41)
Occupation : Me (Accounts Executive) Husband (Driver)
Industry : Me (Construction) Husband (F&B)
Length stay in SG : Me (14 years) Husband (10 years)
Annual Income : Me ($36K) Husband ($24K)
Qualification : Me (Diploma) , Husband (Secondary School)
Pass : Me (S Pass) Husband (WP)

All advise are welcome and appreciated very much.
Asking for documents is mainly for further evaluation and it has no link to say chance is high if they ask for documents.

You may get it this time, but if rejected, try to see if you can get an increase in salary and then reapply after 1 year.

That wall of text...

Pros.

Ethnic Quota.
Young.
Still gainfully employed [ :roll: ]
All the similar points being made to joi016 above.

Cons:

If i can think of one.
The pandemic + election will reduce the number of approvals for citizens and PRs across the board.
thought I should give as much context and be accurate... so best bet to apply mid next year when things died down a little..?
If I were you, I'd apply now regardless.

Even with lesser approvals granted this year, the elephant's share of PRs are still going to be granted to your kind of profile.
Hi everyone, thinking about this again, since I'm thinking of switching companies, should I apply while I'm still with the current company or wait till I'm with a new company, or it doesn't matter?

Myself
Age: 27, Female
Nationality: Malaysian Chinese
Education: Bachelor of Arts (Honours program) from a Canadian uni
Education: Did 1 month exchange to NUS
Industry: Travel Tech Startup
Work Experience: 34 months in MY, 10 months in SG (working with the same company for 3.5 years, relocated this year)
Work: EP
Salary: 51k+ (though travel scene is unstable but currently working on a couple of govt projects)
First time application

Join the new company, wait for 6 months of payslip and then apply.

Your nationality and ethnicity are in your favour. By the time you get your reply you would have likely been in Singapore for 2 years at least so I imagine you would get a positive result.

Please come back at let us know!

I’ve submitted my application on Nov 2019 under PTS scheme. This is my 5th submission, the previous 4 submission was under PTS but not married.

Gender: Female
Martial Status: Married to Chinese SC in 2018
Kids: none
Education: Bachelors - Marketing
Salary: ~50k
Nature of Industry: business intelligence

Length of stay in SG: came since 2010, around 2013 I went back to Hong Kong for 6months

Thanks in advance!!
Yours is a tough one to call. Being ethically Chinese, female and have been applying before you were 30. It could be due to the relatively low salary and maybe being a naturalised Canadian you’re perceived as not SC material as you’re unlikely to give up your Canadian passport.

Now that you’re married to a local Chinese and would have been at least 2 years of marriage by end of this year, i.e. one year from date of application, your PTS case maybe treated as spouse-sponsored case. That would depend on your husband income level as well.

Maybe a 50% chance. Let’s see what other regulars think.
Hi Sorry, re-quoting my last post and abit off topic
I’d like to ask if I’m pregnant, should I inform ICA with the prove of pregnancy or I should wait till I give birth...subject to my application is still in processing.

Thanks in advance!

No need to update ICA about pregnancy. Wait till you give birth then update ICA. Your child will be a Singapore Citizen at birth anyway.

Came to Singapore since P4. With family or on your own? If with family, what is their residence status, especially that of your parents?

I would say low chance.
Either Caucasian or Middle Eastern are low quota groups. Your salary is relatively low to these groups.

There's nothing to stop you applying though, but don't be surprised if you are rejected

Thanks for the opinion, yeah I will probably give it a go, just to avoid a "what if" scenario
thanks though
