5th time PR Applicant 2024 - Need your advice!

Post by martian91 » Sun, 19 May 2024 6:17 pm

Hi all,

I am new to this forum and hope to get your advice as I am pondering whether I should apply this year or wait further. As the title goes, I was rejected 4 times before. Below is my profile:

- Single F, Vietnamese, 33 Yo
- EP Holder, Automotive MNC
- Annual salary: 100K ish (84K basic)
- Graduated from local university, have been working since 2016, never worked elsewhere except Singapore
- Have been living in Singapore for past 15 years and truly want to stay here for the rest of my life.

I have some questions after reading some posts in the forum:

1. I recently purchase a property in my birth country under my name. Is this a disadvantage to my PR application? Should I declare it in the form? I didn't purchase it because I want to move back, just due to my family circumstance.

2. My past applications included letter of endorsements from Singaporeans (my friends, my bosses, etc) but still unsuccessful. Should I still include them this time? Do you think the officers will read them?

3. Should I apply this year - as you know election is coming or should I wait and try to get a higher paying job?


Really appreciate your advice! :) I would like to know your success stories too if you have similar background.

Cheers.

If I were you I'll wait till job changes or marital status changes. Just feels like re-applying doesn't make any difference even with letters from friends and bosses..

Hey abbby,

Thanks for your reply! Almost thought my post wouldn't get any reply as the chance is really slim.
I actually submitted my application in early June. Fingers crossed =)

1. Not disadvantage. you don't need to declare
2. Not needed to include it again
3. Apply after your career/salary increases more.
