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? By the way, I went to have a consultation at Paul Immigration. Total boiler room operation...very dishonest and aggressive sales tactics.

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 This is no longer valid.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.

May not be easy as salary is slightly on the lower side. If rejected, improve on that and reapply after 2 years.

Question:
1. When your parent get PR?
2. What is your status in SIngapore before you holding PR
3. How long you are in Singapore?

May not be easy NOW, as your parents didn't apply for PR for you that time. Now you are trying to apply as a first generation PR, whereas it should be been via the Second generation PR route when they got it N years ago.

You didn't mention if you added your first son to the original application.
Oops sorry forgot. Yes I did include my first son in last application. Thx.
Should stand a reasonable chance, except the age. If you don't get approved this cycle, you will both be even older ...
Hello experts & all,

Just wanted to quickly update that I recently got my IPA for PR. Thanks for your kind inputs and guidance.
