50-50 is for the whole family. They wont approve/reject part of the applicants in an application. Chance is high since you have stayed in SG for a while and contributed and also ethnic quota. Will get lesser because of your age.

Hello All,
Super long-time lurker here but first time poster. I scoured the whole forum for PR-application related posts and they were instrumental in helping me form my PR application. Wanted to share my PR journey to help the data bank here, hope if it's of use (as this forum has been so useful to me - thank you!)

Wife (main applicant):
Age: 37
Race: Chinese (Malaysian by birth)
Nationality: Australian
Education: Degree
Length of stay/Working in Singapore: 2 years (2 full income tax years before applying for PR)
Income tax Assessment: 2
Job: Media
Number of job changes in Singapore: 0
Current Annual Salary: $200+ gross
Total Work Experience: 15 years
Previously on EP, now PR

Husband:
Age: 35
Race: Caucasian
Nationality: Australian
Education: Trade certificate
Length of stay/Working in Singapore: 2.5years
Income tax Assessment: 2
Job: Chef
Current Annual Salary: > 70k
Total Work Experience: 16 years
Previously on DP, now PR

Kid: 1 (son, just born after receiving PR application -- we are in the process of applying for his PR now).

I applied for my PR about two years after arriving in Singapore with my husband. It was a standard application, with testimonial letters from lawyers and also church members. We also included a cover letter stating our intention and plans for staying in Singapore, and ties to local family members here.

We applied for our PR in November 2020, received our PR in May 2021. So about a six month waiting period. Hope this helps with the information bank. Thanks again to all the helpful assessors on here -- you never know who you're helping, even those who don't post :)

Thank you AnzacCookie, It nice when our lurkers contribute. You are correct, there are a lot out there, and occasionally, like now, let us know our work is not in vain. It is also nice to see an approval that ticks all the boxes and also has a surprise or two contained. This is why we love getting these types of posts which would otherwise go unnoted and unable to help others. It's nice to see a short application span. Thank you again, for paying it forward. It will surely help somebody else. Cheers,

NB: Anzac Cookies are something I often make at home, but it's something I first tasted back in the early 1990's while on a 6 month job in Darwin. They kind of stuck with me. :cool:

Haha anzac cookies are the best -- I'm having them as lactation cookies at the moment as I'm breastfeeding my newborn, they're packed with delicious oats! Glad you enjoy them as well to the point you're making them at home today. So easy to make! And no worries re: posting, glad to pay it forward after reading the thousands of posts and assessments on here.

Congratulations on the addition to the family. I'm egging my kids to get busy (Daughter's given me 2 grandsons 2 & 5 and my son's wife has recently given me a granddaughter, now 9 months old, they are working on having 3 in total. Son just turned 32 this past Sunday. Daughter, I freaked out on Saturday. Asked her if she realized at 37 she is now the same age as I was when she was born! lol

Thank you

Did you come back on the PEP or apply for it after the issuance of the EP?
I came back on an EP, and transferred to a PEP last year.

I'm inclined to agree with SF for a couple of reasons, the two biggest are a) time only started in 2019 as the return to Oz for a couple of years shot everything before 2019 (including tax returns files); b) Quota. Especially as both are Caucasian. Assimilation will be harder to judge as well.

However, occupation and assumption that application will include child/children, It might be worth a try. The ticket isn't that expensive in your income bracket but if you fail, you should wait at least 2 years before reapplying unless something major (good) happens relative to your profile. But in no case would I try applying before at least one year from failure had elapsed. If you try for it, good luck, and I would appreciate you keeping us informed as these types of cases are always good data as it is outside what we normally see (either positive or negative).

Happy to keep you updated. I'll be applying for the family (incl kids) in the next few weeks.

Hi,

Second time asking since I am actually gonna apply for PR soon. (asked before about 4 years ago)

Some background info:

Me: Female, single, 25 years old

Education: Took PSLE and O Level at local schools in Singapore, Diploma at Republic Polytechnic

Stay in Singapore: 16 years (never left)

Employment: 3 years, S pass, 31k (I know lower than most here D: ) , International broadcasting station

Nationality: Eurasian with Thai passport

None of my parents are Singaporeans or PR and have relocated to another country in 2015 while I continued my studies here. Hence, I am applying the PR under my own merit. I hope to reside here permanently and get citizenship one day.

What do you think are my chances of getting PR right now? Will the covid situation affect?

Thank you!

If you improve your salary and then try after a few years, you may have a chance. But looks low chance now

Did the other PR sponsor your application? Where is your spouse from?

Chances look low because of the quota and salary.
