Dear team,

I would like to ask
a) what is the PR chance for my son to get PR approval

There are second hand stories of Pinoy LTVP children (child of 2 PRs) being approved but it is not the common result I hear. Rejections are more common. I am in the same boat as you and my child has been rejected 4X since first applying in 2011. Just cross your fingers and hope for the best.

The criteria is simple. You need to show that you are contributing and will contribute to Singapore (holistically).
If your ethnic group doesn't fit (i.e. not Chinese), your other supporting criteria will need to increase substantially.
For example, I have heard of ethnic Chinese earning around your salary, getting PR. However, because you don't meet that criteria, you will likely need to earn substantially more.
It's a numbers game. There are more Chinese PR spaces, than Indian than Malay and there are not a lot of "others". You are competing against people in the "other" category. These "others" include caucasians who are being parachuted in as senior managers getting paid in excess of 30k/month

That being said, the fact you have both been SPR for such a long time does stand in your favour.

Maybe (and this is purely speculation) the gahmen is waiting until after your child reaches primary school age to allow other SC kids to get first choice of primary school. And then after will grant PR

One reason is you have got your PR when it was easy in 2008. Also kid was not born in SG. This along with the ethnicity is making it tough. Result may not change as there is no significant change from your application last 8 months ago.
