i guess the best way to apply PR is to get and secure a job in Sg.. Then u can apply with ur company's help .. Makes process faster and easier.. No really a good time.. I guess anytime is a good time.. :cool:

Cheers,

There is no need for company sponsorship i think. However, it makes ur application much easier if your company is willing to apply for u. (take note of the difference.. Company sponsorship != Company applying for you)..

U can also apply urself .. very hazzle free.. as long as u have all the documents ready upon application.. If u have a job already, u can just ask a letter from your company to state that you have been working for that company for xx yrs/mths, then ur position and ur mthly salary.. Then it should be fine..

At least mine is like that..

But of course, plus some other requirements that u may have to meet.

So i apply the PR myself.. with just the company letter .. plus some education certificate...etc

Then i pay the application fees myself.
And when i got the PR, i pay for the PR fees myself.. (IC ..etc)
Then in this case, i am myself-sponsored...

So in case of company sponsored, they will just pay for u all the application and process fees..

I think it makes no difference. If the company wants to pay for me, i will oblige willingly.. But if there is string condition like bond or contract, then i rather fork out the $ myself.. Anyway it is not a lot..

Hope this helps..
Cheers..
Take care :wink:

just recently, i managed to get PR after 3 tries (once every 1.5years, all with different company). twice i applied together with family(wife & kid) but unsuccessful. wife tried on her own (she's on S-Pass) and she gets it the 1st time. wife sponsor our kid and kid gets PR likewise. by my 3rd try, family's basically a PR so it was basically, i presume, just a formality on my application. i was on P2 pass on my last application while the 1st two was on Q1 pass.

the thing is...just give it a go and hope for the best
