Really. As long as it meets the Minimum requirements which is somewhere around 4.5K/pa basic we think. Unless you happen to be from Malaysia with a decent degree.
huh? 4.5k is alot... ok but the salary amt wont matter as much for rep renewal right?
example if someone has got his PR via working as a engineer and earned 5K at that time and now is earning 2K as an admin, it MAY matter during REP renewal as the salary has reduced significantly.

If you've gone to school here in your younger(<23) days, you might get by with significantly below 4.5k.
(Masters, PhDs and private diplomas don't count. I figured a good gauge is to ask if you can sing the anthem and recite the pledge).
Concur with SMS if youre Chinese Malaysian - all you might need is to be and stay alive.

Yes, the absolute amount doesn't seem to matter as much as staying employed for REP renewals.
However the present pandemic + election + economy situation likely overrides all past trends, so your guess is as good as mine, but everything is certainly going to be tighter.

I applied SC thru e-application in early May 2020 (during CB period)

country/race : Indo chinese
gender : male
age : 35
marital : single
bachelor degree from univ in ID
working as IT
got my PR since 2008 (june 2008 application submission, approval in nov 2008)
income : ± 105k p.a inc. bonuses
own private property

Just wondering what will be the chance of getting approval, looking that i have been keeping my status as PR for more than 10 years and only decided to apply SC esp. during this pandemic ?
And usually how long does it take from e-application submission to receiving acceptance/rejection letter as stated on ICA it takes 6-12 mths of processing or can be longer ?

It may take 8-18 months for the result.
