Do you employ any locals in your company/business? If so, that MAY also contribute.

One of my friend just got his pr approved along with his family members. ( wife and kids )

He is married with 2 boys.
Working at an MNC
race - Indian
Nationality : Chinese ( Hk passport)
Salary I would think about 500 k plus per year
He has 2 sons
Length of stay 6 years
He got his approval on the first go and wait time was 11 months which was a surprise considering the scenario with covid.

Thanks

Actually my friends profile is similar to mine. My pr got approved January this year and my friends pr just a few days ago. Both of us from Hong Kong ( holding hk passports ) and our race Indian. The difference is he works for an MNC and I have my own business.

Ah got it. Not a lot of Indians with a HK passport on this forum I'd imagine.

At least from this forum, you’d have gleaned some information on how PRs are granted.

It has always been about the applicants nationality/race and quotas in the name of social fabric/ease of integration.

Though I must say, different set of rules apply to multi millionaire/billionaires.
