Hello all, Please help to reply your point of view. I submitted my PR application in July 2021 and until now the status is still Pending. When I submit my PR I also submit additional documents such as cover letter, resume, testimonial from my friends and my insurance. After I visited around this forums and from my PR application successful friends, I realized that those additional documents are not really necessary. So my concern is due to those additional documents that impact my application status or not. Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
No, it is surely not due to those documents. We have seen PR applications been processed between 3-18 months (max). So, be patient and don't worry.

Hi all,
Just want to share some experiences during my family's PR application.

Highlights:

Application date: May 2021 - sole attempt
Applicants: My wife, my daughter, and myself
Profile: My wife (35 y.o Indonesian Chinese under DP*), my daughter (4 y.o Indonesian Chinese under DP*), and myself (35 y.o Indonesian Chinese under EP since 2017)
Tax submission: 5 years since 2017 without any single miss/late payment - I'm not sure whether it's important or not. But since many of discussions in here mentioned about this, I just shared.
Income: S$8.x K/monthly with AWS and some annual bonus

Notes*:
1. My wife and my daughter actually just relocated to Singapore in early 2021. Thank God my wife got a job in June 2021 (under EP)
2. I didn't do anything with my application despite there was a change for my wife's status from DP to EP holder. Until my friend suggested me to update the application on early January 2022. I updated the documentation and within a day ICA officer replied me and stated that they acknowledged the changes.

Outcomes:

1. End of March 2022, I didn't aware when exactly the document upload button dissapeared. But it was no longer there
2. Last Sunday (17 April 2022), We checked thru web and it said approved ~ after 11 months. The following day (Monday), we received the IPA letter thru post
3. Now we are working on the formalities completion.

Well, that is my family's experience. Wishing you all the best with the application.
Congrats. Good on you for paying it forward!

Hi SF ,

Thanks for the prompt response. I am currently on S-pass. Due to the changes of my company policy , they won't renew any EP holder moving forward. My company advice me to stay on S-Pass instead.
Considering the quota that would be available, won't be easy for you to get PR till you move to E Pass and also increase your salary.

Another reason why it may be tough : there are lot of locals who are in the financial advisory space. ICA will be looking to grant PR where there is shortage of talent in the industry.
Hi SF,

Really appreciate your advice. I will check in with my company if they allowed me to move to EP instead. As for income-wise, no doubt there will be an increment on a yearly basis.

I pray for those who are applying for PR or waiting for the outcome will get good news soon!
As salary increases, chances will no doubt improve. The longer you stay, the more you establish your roots here which will also help you look more committed to SG.

Thank a lot singaporeflyer.
Don’t use time as an indication of success/failure. It will only stress you out and it means nothing. Approval periods can take anywhere from a couple months to more than 2 years, so don’t stress about it.
