PR application pending since June 2019

Post by Pras0202 » Fri, 21 May 2021 2:27 pm

Hi all,

I am writing on behalf of my wife. She applied for her PR in June 2019 and is still pending as I type this message. It’s been 22 months already. I have never seen anyone waiting for PR result this long.

Her profile:
Age - 30
UG - B.Tech Biotechnology from India
PhD - NUS (2013 - 2017) direct PhD
Job - One of the leading research labs in Singapore
Salary - 85k ++
Marital status - Married
Pass type - E pass
PR application date - June 2019

My Profile:
Age - 30
UG - Engineering from India
PG - MBA from a leading b-school in India
Job - working with a top engineering company in Singapore as a BDM since Nov 2019
Salary - 60k
Marital status - Married
Pass type - S pass
PR application date - Feb 2021

We both applied for our PRs separately.

What are our chances of getting a Singapore PR? We are also confused why is it taking so long to get a result (be it positive or negative). Why is it on hold for so long? We are clueless. Can someone advice what could be done here?

22 months is indeed a long time, average I read here is about 1 year on average or less.

If you search other parts of the forum, you’ll find your answer:

We've seen several cases here of application hitting 23 months. Some had approvals, some had rejections. Length of time is immaterial for the success/failure of an application. All you can do it buy your ticket and pray. As long as you are showing up a pending, it's not over yet.

It could also be due to the fact that your subsequent application complicated hers. It may have meant that you're both part of a "joint" application, and thus the timer has reset.

She may get it 40% chance. Yours will likely be very low chance as you are applying from S Pass, ethnicity, salary level slightly low, etc.

Why is it difficult when applied from an S pass holder? Any particular reason?

Because S Pass issuance criteria like education, salary are less than that of employment pass?
