I really want to know my chances?
I came to Singapore and work from 2000 till now. I never think of becoming a PR singapore for the pass 7 years until I meet my Husband (singaporean). we apply for approval to get married in order to prevent my work permit being canceled. The marriage is approved and so we got married and now happily holding a work permit working in singapore. Now I want to apply for PR but my salary only $1050, I am holding a CIDESCO DIPLOMA from Switzerland. Continue stays and work in Singaprore for 7 years, My husband salary is 2500, his CPF is about 80,000 now, now we need a First Hand Flat from HDB but cannot apply because i am not PR, what is my chances to get a PR, I have apply in August 07 until now still no news please help me thanks

Not true, the norm is around 3 months, however you can request them to speed it up, if it effects dependants too! I also needed to know asp, to make my own plans, and my wife and I are both foreigners, me being the dependant!

I don't see you having any problems at all, to be honest unless there are quotes for different countries ! Also heard of people getting it within 4 to 6 weeks, if you need to chase them, do it! But be polite and explain your reasons, they will not bite you, and in fact are quite helpful, doing their job, within policy guidelines of course

Your husband is a Singaporean or a PR (since he has CPF) - As such your chances are very good.

Your situation might seem 'fishy' to immigration -
maybe because you 'we apply for approval to get married in order to prevent my work permit being canceled.'
I have a Malaysian friend who married a Singaporean and their request was turned down three times because of her low income (she worked at the same place as me) and the possibility of marrying to stay.

If you do get rejected then try again and get someone of influence to write a recommendation for you.

for my gf it took 6 months... well of course it doesnt mean that it takes 6 months for everyone.. but it can :lol:

indeed ICA says :
How long does it take before I know the result of my SPR application?

The processing time is generally 3 months.
tought i saw 6 months somewhere one day, my mistake. :)
