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.

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!
1. up to you. If you think you want to try and the cost is not an issue to you. By all mean, just apply.
2. dont know
3. No
4. dont know
5. No
Thanks for your input.

Another question - I learned recently that one can submit cover letter, etc anywhere during the application process where it allows me to attach documents. I know that many experts here regard these additional documents as frivolous but I wonder why ICA allows them if it frowns upon them.

Yes, but sorry, didn’t see he mention when he submitted
I'd say you lack a bit of effort as it is there very clearly written in his post that he applied at the begining of the year. Some old schoolers here would call it asking to be spoon-fed.

Should be a walk in the park, me thinks.
Not purely from the salary angle, it’s more towards the ethnicity and possibly the hse.
And the age.
