If you're still in the application stage, it's probably going to be a while. When I got my PR it was about 6 months later that I received the letter that said I need to register.

im married to a PR so im concerned about it...

Since im 25 and ang moh, i guess they would tell me "don wan u lah, too old orready" as well.

Anyway, just a question to Jeppo, were you working on work permit at the time of application ? Or was your application really totally based on your wife being a PR ?

I was working in Batam and decided to join my wife in Singapore (she was already a PR). So applied directly for PR without going for EP or any other work permit prior.

Well, just completed the formalities for the PR. Still here. Will see how this turns out. Might be weeks or months before I get the letter to register. Just that my manila folder has a big "NS LIABILITY" stamped on it in 30-point font size.

I'll post a follow up once I have more news.

Hi

I know someone in a similar situation. Wife works and husband no work yet and under DP. Only thing stopping them from applying for PR is the liability of NS. Hubby is late 30's.

I suppose he's too old for NS, right?

Right, the CMB have sent me the mailer asking me to register for NS. Here goes nothing.... or everything...

Will let everyone know the outcome soon!

And.... after filling in the profile and everything, Mindef says I don't have to do NS.

I would like to thank everybody for all their time in replying this seemingly simple but important matter. Cheers!

Kids PR and National Service

Postby flair » Mon, 22 Sep 2008 6:27 pm

The thing about kids doing National Service worries me slightly as a mother of 2 sons aged 1 and 4. But apparently you don't need to register them as PR's just apply for study visa. Has anybody had experience with this??

EP holder with PR parents

Postby EP Holder » Fri, 21 Nov 2008 3:44 pm

I am EP holder with PR parents. I am 23 now. My Parents got PR when I was more than 21. So, I was not eligible to become PR along with them at that time. I studied in Singapore on Student Pass for two years and am now working here on EP. So now I can get a PR only by the EP to PR route. (is it first generation or second generation in my case?)

If I apply for and get a PR now, what will be my NS status? Somebody said I will be asked to do NS if I am less than 25 years of age as my parents are PR.
Does anyone know about the exact rules? Will I be exempt from NS if I get PR before the age of 25? Will I be exempt if I get PR after age of 25?
