1. Profile and Salary wise you should be the main applicantBenenva wrote: ↑Thu, 06 Jan 2022 8:57 pmHi everyone, hope you’re all well and keeping safe!
Apologies for the lengthy post, but I’m planning to apply for PR for the second time (applied first time in May 2019 and rejected in Oct 2019) and would like to get some feedback. Sharing current profile details, improvements since rejection and a few clarifying questions I was hoping you could help answer:
• Age: 31
• Race: British
• Gender: Male
• Marital Status: Married (in Singapore)
• Children: 20 month old daughter
• Religion: Free thinker
• Education: 2.1 Bachelor of Arts in German and Economics from University of London
• Industry: Advertising Technology
• Position: Account Director leading a team of 3
• Pass: Employment Pass
• Salary: Basic 146k/annum, Gross 197k/annum
• No. of tax paid: 4 times
• Length of stay: 4.5 years
• Age: 31
• Race: Serbian
• Gender: Female
• Education: Diploma Media & Communications
• Industry: Opened a sole proprietorship in Singapore in Oct 2021 to deliver personal training classes to local post-partum mothers (5 Singaporean clients thus far)
• Pass: Dependent Pass
• Salary: ~1.5k/month
We used an agency for our first application and from reading some of the threads on here, I can see that was a mistake (planning to apply independently this time)! Improvements in profile since we last applied include:
• Starting a family in Singapore
• 6% increase in salary and becoming a team lead (previously an individual contributor)
• Spouse completing a personal training certification and opening a sole proprietorship in SG, targeting Singaporean post-partum mothers
• Investment portfolio in Singapore
Questions I was helping you could help me with:
1. What is the likelihood of approval based on our profile and is now a good time to apply?
2. Should I or my spouse apply as the main applicant? We are planning to apply as a family.
3. If I apply as the main applicant, would it be worthwhile emailing the ICA a copy of my spouse’s personal training certification and the ACRA business profile of her sole proprietorship?
Thanks in advance for your help!
2. Applying as a family is always better
3. ACRA business profile - They will ask the business details in her personal section in the application.
But in short at this moment, your chance may look very low due to the quota mainly.
