Around PR Thing..

Post by tetris » Thu, 23 Jun 2005 3:31 pm

Hi,

I am currently an EP holder, have been here around 7 months, apply my pr two-months ago. However my pr got turned down. I'm in the process of getting an appeal on my case.

I was just wondering what is the ultimate requirements for one to granted for PR here? is it so personalise and differs or does the government have at least a standard guidelines, so people like me isn't wondering around? appreciate your insight, testimonial, etc, etc. Thanks!

I was under the impression that it's pretty rare to get PR if you have been here less than two years - not unheard of, but rare. And you have to earn a certain amount (ie: pay a certain amount of tax). Maybe someone else could help with more details?

i believe race, religion and nationality play a part in the PR approval.

If your skill and expertise is needed in Singapore you will get your PR when you meet the residency requirement. So take your time and enjoy Singapore.

7 months, I am not so sure if that is enough for you to get your PR. If you are working, they look at your job and your education level, if you have a good job and a good education, getting PR is easy. But then you might have to live at least 2-3 years in Singapore befor you are qualified. My friend got hers after 10 years.. So I don't know if it is easy. But there is not harm trying. Good luck with it!

i applied for pr after 12 months on an EP...this was in november time a coupla years back (conspiracy theorist would say the quota runs out towards end of the year)

but mine was approved in 5 weeks.

i dont know if this helped, but i purchased a property 5 months after i arrived which was about 7months prior to my application

IMHO i do sincerely think that the government wishes to see your commitment to remain in singapore....

just my two yen's thoughts.
