When my daughter applied (at age 5) under my wife’s PR, I had mistakenly thought it would get approved almost automatically. When we appealed, I too was surprised that our finances were put under the spotlight - not just salary, but properties, investments and even my wife’s CPF balance.

Prior to this, I had assumed that how long one stayed in Singapore would carry more weight. My wife has been here since Primary school and had been a PR for decades before we applied for my daughter.

Even if you manage to get PR for another family member, you still need to wait 3 years before buying an HDB. A friend of mine from India was in the same situation once he got PR for his wife... he decided to just buy a small condo unit in an inconvenient part of Singapore (where it’s more affordable). Not easy financially, but better than waiting... he has no regrets.

If you want to appeal, I believe you’ll need to contact them to make an appointment.

Appeal is via letter or email i think.

No of years of stay in sg and place of birth of kids alone does not matter. There are some of my friends who are here in Singapore in EP for the last 15 years with their kids born in SG and are still not able to get PR.

If you look into the criteria for PR it takes into may factors and not just 2 factors.

Conversely, there are those who've been in Singapore less time and managed to get a PR. Like you said, many more factors.

Make yourself a more attractive candidate for citizenship. How is your career progression?

I would guess that the supply of candidates exceeded the slots available for your particular profile... so when selecting who to approve or reject within your profile pool, there were too many candidates who had more attractive attributes than yours.

Since we have no visibility to the application pool or the number of slots available, it’s very hard to explain why certain profiles with certain attributes are more likely to be approved at certain times and rejected at other times.
