Approved in principle PR or EP to PR route

Post by chrono12000 » Sun, 07 Mar 2010 6:13 pm

Dear all,

I am hoping for some advice on my situation. I am a malaysian chinese holding a Master degree in Civil Eng. from national university of singapore (grad 2003) and bachelor degree from university of malaya. I am currently a senior design engineer with a consultant firm in Kuala Lumpur.

I am thinking of migrating to Singapore. I just married four months.

I am considering getting a job first in singapore and get the EP and then apply for PR after six months to one year. But this would mean i will be separating from my wife for around one year while the uncertainty of PR application. If my PR application is successful, only my wife will resign her current job in KL and join me in singapore. If PR application failed, i would have no choice to go back KL.

There is another route of getting approved in principle PR via SMC. I can apply in KL instead. But i heard the chances is lower. Plus all those tightening of immigration in singapore recently.

Regards,
CH

Check out the approved in principle route. From what I read from others on this forum even after a year your chances of PR are slim considering the current scenario and market conditions in SG.
