hi, first time to write in this forum, hope someone can give a sensing of our application. we submitted last july.
wife - 36yo Fil, 8yrs in SG, spass, 63k salary, social service sector
husband - 28yo Swiss, 1 yr in SG, spass, 66k salary, construction mnc, regional tech mgr
and just curious, what are the common profiles of recently approved applicants? Thanks in advance.
Based on what you have said, chance is going to be very low
thanks for the reply! seems that SG still wants majority of Chinese race.
Yes ... and why would it change?
The question I always tell PR applicants to ask: how do you contribute to Singapore in a way that others of a similar group do not?
I'm going to break this down for you.
Take your husband. He's a westerner, but only being paid around 5k a month. That's not particularly high. Just look at the western bankers - they typically come in as mid level to high level hires, because they help connect their home markets through Singapore. If you are a VP (a typical mid level role) at an international bank, you're probably on at least 10k a month. More than double your husband. And if you look, it's mainly senior positions that westerners hold, so you're looking at 15k or above.
That is the cohort your husband is competing against. Based on that, I don't think your husband will get PR.
If you take your profile. You are at the age where you will need to have children if you want them (biology). The gahmen, probably expects (rightly or wrongly), that when you do have kids, you will likely stop work while they are young. You therefore wouldn't be contributing any taxes.
At the same time, with your salaries, you would not be able to afford International School
, so you would most likely need to send them to local school (which is perfectly reasonable on your part). Your child going to a local school "would create the perception among locals that it" would stop a local going.
Also, how long have you been married? He's been in Singapore for a year, and you've been in Singapore for 8 years. This implies you have been married for less than a year.
Note - edited to clarify in speech marks
