PR chances 2024

Post by Aantanda » Mon, 27 May 2024 2:45 pm

Dear experts,

I would love your thoughts and comments on our PR chances this time round. Been rejected a coupke of times before. But didnt have kids then. Application is pending for over 6 months.

Husband: Indian, 41 years working in Data analytics in Pharma sector

Wife: Indian, 41 years working as a senior energy and sustainabity professional.

Staying in singapore for about 10 years.
Household income: over $500K per annum

Twin babies one boy one girl born last year in singapore. This is the first application with babies.

1) What are the chances of success with the family of 4?

2) Wife is planning to take a year or so off from work and may convert EP to DP to take care of twins. Will this affect our PR application?

Who makes the larger portion of the 500K/pa? Could have some bearing on it but how much is a good guess that I'm not willing to make. Once she stops working while it shouldn't make any difference due to the reasoning to take care of toddlers, it could if she were the major breadwinner. If you, on the other hand, are the major breadwinner (by a large margin), then it's always possible they could see a flight risk as the little ones aren't near school age so no problem pulling up stakes if a good offer comes your way. But the fact that you have already been here 10 years may hold you in good stead depending on what was written on the other rejection letters. The other visual I see is age, but as you have produced new babies, The age might be a forgiven as she has already passed that hurdle. Age is the only real thing I see aside from the quota restrictions (unless you are making 400k/pa and she only making 100k/pa. Then the flight risk issue is there in the background.

My thoughts? Apply for it with whole family. If rejected, look for A Plan B or greener pastures. There are some who have flogged a dead horse for 4 or 5 applications/rejections and eventually been successful, but they are an anomaly and not very common at all (And without seeing the individuals profiles of each application filed it's hard to give any impressions. Good luck though.

Many thanks for your thoughts @sundaymorningstaple.

We both make equally to add upto 500k ++. Other rejection letters had nothing except application hasn't been successful this time.
