2k salary is extremely low dude, thats probably the reason. They would consider for LTVSP only if she can support you with her salary, which is definitely out of question.

Why dont you find yourself a job here with your Bristish Master degree here and then get yourself an EP applied for? That would be the more logical way of living together here otherwise your wife should be earning atleast 3.5 K to be supporting you as well.

Yes, it could impact her return as she would need to show her contribution to Singapore (e.g., Tax returns), If she is earning less than 20K/year she pays no taxes, if she is out of the country, she pays no taxes. Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.

As far as you having savings is concerned, you could blow that on the Stock Market in one night. That's not what concerns the government. Are you contributing anything to Singapore's economy? No. So why should they let you in?

If the shoe fits....... I wear it. Not a fortune teller, but an HR & Finance Manager for a medium sized SME with lots of anecdotal evidence.

Actually SMS, ICA lets people in on 5 year LTVP if they have some savings and buy an apartment here.

"own a property / properties in Singapore worth at least S$500,000 (in total) for residential purposes and meet any one of the following financial requirements:

* have savings of at least S$400,000 parked in Singapore in any form of financial instruments based in Singapore, or
* show evidence of a monthly local income of at least S$7,000, or
* have a combined, savings and 5-year equivalent income of at least $400,000."

It looks like it is as easy as ABC, just put half a million of your savings to an apartment in Singapore, and another 400 000 local dollars in shares or funds etc in Singapore.

For this category it requires the mature age of 45+ but if you're under 45 ask your parents to apply and move with them.

I'm not surprised your PR application was rejected seeing as you are unemployed. I'm not sure how long you've been married but I'm guessing not for long.

Also, the ICA do not like letters from MPs accompanying applications/appeals. MPs has absolutely no say in immigration processess. The MP's letter has probably done more harm than good to be honest.

Many people are under the misconception that getting married to a PR will automatically get your PR apllication approved. The ICA are getting wise to these tactics.

PPF, I was/as aware of that as well, but frankly the OP does not sound like the kind of guy who has those kinds of funds. If he does, that I would find it difficult that he's not able to come in on his own merits. Something just doesn't wash, and obviously ICA also feels the same way.
