Are you and your spouse CBCs? Or, are you Naturalized citizens? If not CBCs (Canadian Born Chinese). I think your odds are less than if you all are CBCs. That being said, I reckon your odds are reasonably good with the exception of not having worked here long enough.
My spouse and I are both naturalize citizens. Originally we were from China. My son was born in Canada.

Thanks for the insights!
The others may think differently, but I'd think its not going to be easy.
Especially after being naturalized in Canada.
Ummm a very interesting point. Let’s see how it goes. Fingers crossed

Time and again, they kept harping on integration, contribution, and commitment.
Being naturalized abroad, they'd question your commitment.

Thats just my take. I could be wrong. Do provide an update here when the outcome is reached. Good luck.

I agree with the observer. It's what I was saying, but I catch so much flack for being brutally honest, I thought I'd try to tone it down and let somebody else carry the ball. the observer caught the handoff perfectly. ;-) :cool:

Take my reply below with a grain of salt until other respond as well.

In my estimation, I think you will be unsuccessful on your first application, truth be known. Your Income and your family's combined income is rather high and I am guessing (you didn't mention the industry you are in) it's an MNC and either in IT or Finance or both and possibly your wife as well with the salaries you both are commanding. This would put you at a flight risk in ICAs eyes, especially as you are childless as well, so nothing like schooling to anchor you here due to children. This means you are easily to parachute into most any country at will by either your employer or an competitor. There is nothing here to anchor you to the island and you have only been here 4 years. I don't know how much time you have left on your PEP but I'm guessing probably somewhere between 1 & 2 years left. However, it doesn't cost that much to apply so nothing ventured, nothing gained, but be prepared for the worst.

Thanks for the prompt revert Sundaymorningstaple. Fair input and I understand the points you raised.

Our industries are consumer durables/consumer goods (FMCG). Nothing to do with IT or Finance. But I reckon your logic still holds.

Hi everyone, I have a few questions on the PR process:

1) I’m 42 years old and my wife is 44 years old. We have a daughter and have been living here under my EP for 2 years. I understand that I’m on the older side as a PR applicant. I also understand that I have not been in SG for a long time. I would like to understand whether I should wait till I’ve been here for longer (maybe after 5 years of living here) or apply earlier because I’m already an older applicant.

2) Is it better to apply in Jan when the PR quota is fresh?

3) We live in a condo we purchased last year. Does this matter to ICA?

4) Besides volunteering, what other ways can we show the ICA that we’d like to put roots down here?

5) Does using an immigration consultant help our chances?

Thank you!

No, but being married to SC and not from 3rd world country would make it easier. Assuming married over 2 years, both got decent jobs, a baby or two would be a bonus.

crystal ball said.. you need to stay longer.

6mth stay and apply PR and can get PR. This is no longer valid.
Unless your level is like James Dyson, Dyson founder

3. I’d actually think that it’s a positive, as a sign you’re committed here for the longer term.

However, of utmost importance is social acceptance, ie integration.
In layman terms, the ethnic quota.
