I just recently moved to another employer. But I've been working here in singapore for years now. can I already apply for PR, or do I need to wait to get my 6th month payslip in my new employer? since it's part of the explanatory_notes_and_document_list_for_PTS checklist requirements.

can I just combine my previous employer payslips with my current to fulfill the 6mon payslip requirements?

thanks in advance!

Wait until 3 tax submissions or your first EP renewal has been approved (assuming it's 24 month EP).

20-25% chance mainly due to the length of stay. Try once and if you don't get it, it will be tough after that.

Stay here or change company - No one can say. Also depends on how big the hike is. Example 120K to 180K- yes, MAY make a difference. But 120K to 140K may not may a big impact.

Singapore has no choice, the competition for talent around the world is heating up, either open arms or lose out.

Not going to be easy.
You need to move to a EP, increase salary and then apply.

Noted on the salary part. Does being single considered lower chance?

There are many who got their PR when being Single. So, I that is not a big issue.

In your case it is the ethnic quota, salary, pass type are the main issues.
