Did you apply PR for your daughter back in 2007 when you got your PR? How come she only got PR in 2020?

I am Malaysian Chinese, F, SPR since 2012, applied SC Jan 2020 and yet to receive any confirmation.
I do not know if that means I will need to wait persistently.
My income are not great compare to Indian national who posted with 150K. I am barely half of it.

I do not know my chances of getting it because it is really affecting my promotion in the office.

If you are still of childbearing age and have a degree it will probably happen but you will need to be patient. Marry a local Chinese and it's a shoe-in.

Actually my daughter moved to Singapore only in 2018 (as I was doing extensive business travel for almost 10 years) hence she got her PR in 2020.
We are still awaiting a positive result, keeping fingers crossed!!

You may not get it. Singapore prefers nuclear families. It's a form of bias that a certain politician espoused.
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!

That was my first thought as well. Having said that, it is quite surprising to see her daughter's PR approved and obviously not as a family. As recently as 2020.

Hello there, is that an issue? The entire process is so discrete and we just have to keep guessing & hope for the best! I'm doing that too.. Thanks anyways for your feedback & support, cheers ArK05

Not an issue. Good for her. Normally the ICA seems to reject applications which have only part of the family. The ICA works in mysterious ways

50-50 chance. Kids in local school?
Usually chance is better after 1 REP renewal.
