Duplicate Post. But change is going to be less

Ethnicity and Salary on the lower side will be the issues.

I think his family income is almost equal to 150K yearly. Since he can't change his Ethnicity, please suggest what should be a good salary for a positive outcome? Also what should be individual income if only husband working and not wife? Please suggest.

He needs to do more to differentiate from the pack. Salary won't help

I agree, apart from overall family income social and financial contribution for the needy and NGO’s will make any significant difference from the regular profiles?

Subject matter experts, please advise should I need to update the ICA about my EP renewal while my PR application status is under ICA’s process?

EP renewal ICA automatically knows.

If you had contributed to NGO's may be for 10 years and a big amount it MAY. But if you are just going to start and expect that to give you additional points. No. It is not going to help

What about ...
Staying in an area where there are lots of Singapore Chinese.
Having multiple Singapore friends vouch for you via recommendation letters.
Learning Chinese and converse it in fluently.
Speak perfect singlish.
Set up a company and hire lots of locals
..
As I said before you need to differentiate.

These are not going to help at all. I mean recommendation letters may not help.

Staying in an area - i am not sure. I may be wrong.

Agree that learning and speaking in chinese MAY be a good value add

Certainly feels like it does.

It touches on the integration and commitment aspects of getting residency. The “grey areas”.

Uncomfortable truth "why always Indians". Because we are brown. Chances of getting away with unpleasant behavior or potential (aka racial stereotype) to misbehave is less. Just the other part of the argument which is often missed.
