In my view chance is surely less than 5%. You will not need an immigration consultant.

Negative because of
1. Ethnic quota
2. Short stay in SG - 0 Tax filings. We will recommend at least 2-3 filings.
3. Minimum 3-5 years of working in SG

Hi, this is my first time posting in this forum.

I applied for PR on Feb 2021, and the application is still shown as pending. I recently received a promotion letter and salary increment from my company. Should I notify ICA on that?

Also, the company letter have the stamp "private and confidential", as usual. Should I ask my company to provide another letter without the stamp, in case I want to send to ICA?

Appreciate any help on this.

1. Yes, inform ICA
2. P and C - usually means you can't tell it to other employees, etc. It is ok to share with ICA in my view.

You deleting this post, makes the entire conversation not meaningful anymore. Please don't do it, atleast you could have censored some sensitive information and left the rest below

I have sanitized the information u asked to be removed in my below reply post and left the rest in the quote.

I have put it back and removed the information that I find to be sensitive, please remove your quote which still contains sensitive information or update it to match what I have posted above

Thanks

Applying using Family Ties would be the best option at this juncture as you salary is a bit on the low side, but you are probably being gamed by the employer because you are working on an LoC so they know they have the upper hand. Us FT and go for it.

Thanks so much! We'll try this time first and if it doesn't work, we'll try sending our baby to ICA as a peace offering :)

Please note what SMS said, it is highly probable you could find a position with significantly higher pay, and age 36 is really prime time… don’t leave a pile of chips on the table.
