Hi there,

This forum is extremely helpful!

I want to provide a bit of background about me before I ask questions:

I am a 30 year old Malaysian Chinese EP holder working in a software company here in SG earning about $86k basic + $17k variable. I've only been in Singapore for 11 months now and only just completed my first tax assessment.

On 2 Jun 2021, I applied for PR for both myself and my spouse who is also Malaysian Chinese of the same age and still residing and working in Malaysia. My wife is a chartered accountant at a Malaysian FMCG company.

My objective with this PR application is to reunite with my wife as the closed borders and LDR are seriously taking a toll on both of us.

Now for the questions:
1. What are my chances, especially in today's climate of increased scrutiny on granting residency for foreign talents?
2. A few days ago, I noticed next to my wife's PR application status (still "Pending") that she has been assigned a FIN number. Is this an indicator of any significant progress with the application?

Appreciate your sharing! :)
1. You may get it or else apply after 2 years of working in SG
2. where did the FIN number appear? Does it start with F or G? Anyway, it does not signify anything meaningful on the outcome of the PR application

Thanks for your quick reply @singaporeflyer.

The FIN number starts with G and appears right under my wife's name in the application status checker screen. Thanks for providing that clarity so I know not to keep my hopes too high haha.

Will patiently wait and keep you guys posted!

It seems your wife didn't have a FIN, ICA created a new one for the PR application.
If anything it just indicates the PR process has been initiated.

Hi all,

I'd welcome some feedback on my family's profile below (I will be the main applicant). We'd previously applied at the end of 2019, which in hindsight was quite early. Biggest change since then is the birth of our son, plus salary increases for both myself and my spouse. I realise we fall into the 'Other' category and that chances probably aren't sky high, but would welcome any additional thoughts... Thanks in advance.

Age: 35
Sex: M

Stay in SG: 3 years
Education: Masters in social sciences from a leading UK university
Field of work: Senior Analyst (with line management responsibilities), energy and commodities research
Salary: 120k
Company: MNC
Pass: EP

Spouse

Age: 35
Sex: F
Race: Chinese
Citizenship: PRC
Stay in SG: 3 years
Education: BA in Economics from a PRC university

Not going to be easy. Try after you work in SG for 5 years.

Hold your breath. Normally even for M'sian Chinese, you must still work here around two years before you apply. So, you might have a 23 month wait for results or you might get rejected or you might get lucky. I'm betting on rejection until you have been employed here for two years. The only thing the other 14 years do is give you the reduced entry fee (Salary basic) that normal applicants do not have the advantage of. I wish you good luck though, but I think you might need a good dollop of luck if you have only worked one year.

Hi, I submitted my PR application two months ago at the 6th month mark. Since I studied here and did two internships during college, I included the two internship experiences in my PR application but I didn’t submit any relevant docs for these because they weren’t mandatory.

Should I email ICA my internship payslips? Also, I just got a 10% pay raise. Is it recommended for me to inform ICA of this and submit my latest payslip as well?

Thanks!

for the 10% pay rise, you can inform ICA, but don't expect too big changes for that. Internship payslips not needed unless they ask for it.

Hi,

I've been following this forum quietly for sometime and found resources are helpful!

I've applied the PR Jan 2020 (first time after waiting some tax years), and since then on pending mode. Looking to see your expertise here on my chance of getting approval

Profile:
Job: IT Engineer (support)
Age: 32, single
Nationality: Indonesian (stated as race on application)
Religion: Christian
Length of stay in Singapore: 5 Years
Working in Singapore: 5 years
Annual salary: S$80,000 (EP P1 Holder)
Qualifications: Bachelor of IT from Indonesia (top Indonesia's university, part of ASEAN University Network)

Timeline:

Jan 2020: Applied PR
March 2020: Changed job, informed ICA, ack'ed by them
August 2020: ICA sent an email asking me to procure my family (parents, sisters) CV which I did.

Since then it's completely silent.

What is the odd of me getting approval this year?

Chance will be still low. Also little surprised that 80K annual salary is given EP P1. Are you sure?
