I honestly think that I may have higher chance to apply PR for my husband but at the same time due to my previous criminal record would it affect my husband heavily?

I don’t think that will affect the outcome, ICA just want to see good behaviour, so assuming you have been on good behaviour since it shouldn’t really matter but u never know.

The main factors that will most likely affect the outcome would be marriage is less than 3 years, no kids.
But overall you still have a shot since you are both young.

You did not mention your race. The negatives I see is salary is on the low side and you applied for PR perhaps slightly too early into your marriage.

I am Chinese if it matters (?)

Previously my landlord who is a Chinese and married a Malaysian Chinese said that I could apply 6 months after getting LTVP

A similar japanese- Chinese couple received their PR without even applying for LTVP. Only applied for PR and received it in less than 3 months

If the couple are chinese it is easy.
Your case is different and you as a sponsor have a small negative record. I feel will eventually he will get it. But if you ask me if you will get it this time, 50-50.

All applications are different and subject to approval on case by case basis. Just because one Japanese-Chinese SC couple got approved for PR does not mean your spouse will be approved as well. ICA looks at many factors…

It is well known Malaysian Chinese have a slightly easier time getting PR approved and quite a number are married to local SCs.

However, this causes many Singaporeans who are not married to foreigners to have a misconception that married to SC = confirm can get PR within months which is not true at all. No disrespect to your landlord but unless he is an ICA officer, I’ll take his words with a grain of salt.

I agree with singaporeflyer that chances are 50-50. If rejected first time, you can try to upskill and improve salary for next time.

Sadly after 13 months his PR application has been rejected.

I highly suspect it's due to my salary as I have 3 surgeries during the past year and my salary had been rather unstable

You can re-apply after 2 years and improve your salary and have a stable job in the mean time. Does not hurt to do a part-time diploma also.

Stabilise your job/salary and reapply after 1 year from date of rejection.
