Average waiting time for PR?

Post by CourtneyAlexis » Wed, 16 Jun 2021 7:33 pm

Hello, when applying for PR it stated the average processing time was 4-6 months. I'm wondering if this is accurate, or if things are delayed due to COVID.

I applied in October of 2020 (so over 8 months now).

To give a little insight, I'm a 27yo American female. I've been on an EP in Singapore for the past 5 years, and I am married to a Singaporean. I haven't received any request for additional documents. I'm wondering if it would be helpful to send a follow-up e-mail, or to continue to wait it out. I know patience is a virtue, but I am getting so anxious! I would appreciate any advice or feedback. TIA.

If you search in the forum, there are applicants who waited up to 24 months for a result so don’t be surprised if you have to wait that long.

If you pester ICA for an outcome, it won’t be good.

You’ll just have to keep waiting and be patient.

Ah, okay I see. I have a friend who got approved after a year, so I know it can take longer. They asked for additional documents and more info along the way though, so I didn’t know if my situation was normal.

I guess every application has its own timeline. I know of families who got it in 7 to 10 months. I waited 19 months and got approved. I would think since your married to a local it would be a shorter wait.
