Couple applying for PR

Post by Charlie B. » Tue, 17 May 2005 9:40 pm

Hi,

My wife and I have finally decided to apply for PR here in Singapore. We recently got married and thought that it would be an excellent place to settle. My wife is here on an EP and has been working for close to 2 years for an MNC. I, however, am holding on to a DP. I tried to look for work here earlier but I guess the jobhunt is tougher than I thought, even if I have an MBA under my belt.

Well, my question is: "Are there cases of couples applying for PR where one gets approved and the other rejected?"

I know that the approval is based on the "value" that the applicant can bring to the country. But, since I'm currently not employed here, will that affect our application as a couple?

Would appreciate any input.

Thanks.

Charlie B.

I think immigration rejected the application if there's lack of documents or requirements.Mostly original.Why worry?Complete all the documents presented in immigration and wait for the approval. :P
