Get a job (employment pass or S Pass) and work on it for at least 1 year and then ask your husband to sponsor PR for you. Your chances for getting it in this route will be bright after 1 year

But if your husband sponsors your PR now chances that you will get it are lesser

Try applying after 1 year

Chances of getting PR

Working in SG + Husband sponsorship for PR > Husband sponsorship for PR

Provided after you are at least 1 year in SG.

Good Luck !

P1 > P2> Q1 > S Pass > Work Permit

But we cant decide which pass type to get. The MOM Decides which pass type to assign to an employee based on the employee's education,past experience,salary offered in SG and past experience in SG.
