PR Chances for American Chinese

Post by Samm Grace » Sun, 17 Jan 2021 2:13 pm

Hello All!

Thank you for the great info and sharing on this forum. I would like to assess the PR possibilities before submitting an application. Would appreciate your comment!

Nationality: American
Race: Chinese
Birthplace: Malaysia. Speaks Chinese and Malay
Profession: FMCG, Technical Head
Income: $300+
Length of Stay in SG: About 2 years
Age: 50

What do you think of my chance of getting the PR?
I will be applying with my spouse who is also an American Chinese. Not applying with children as they are grown up.

Thanks!

Slim to Zero. Age and past child production age. Will probably be seen by ICA as someone who is just trying to find a berth to be closer to their native homeland without having to live in that dump. (Lots of Indians here doing the same thing - including my daughter's Father-in-Law) Good place to stay and just a short couple of hours back to their homeland. Obviously if you don't try, the answer is no, if you do try, may still be no but there is a small chance of being yes. Being from Malaysia is a plus, but how much of your actual cultural is left? How long were you in the US. It might make re-assimilation with the Singapore-Malaysia Chinese culture more difficult, just sayin'. I don't think I could re-assimilate into the US even though I'm Caucasian as I've been here 39 years now. Good Luck though. With things the way they are today, I reckon one should buys their ticket and take their chances.

Thanks @sundaymorningstaple for the advice. I hear you and agree with you for the most part. I think assimilation is not difficult for me since I speak the local Chinese dialects and can make local friends quite easily. It does not hurt to try. Appreciate the honest feedback.

I agree with SMS. IF you read the annual reports which show the immigration numbers PR approval for those over 50 is very low.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!
