Singapore LPR application

Postby vivekmtajane » Fri, 29 Oct 2010 4:42 pm

Hi,

I have applied for a Singapore LPR on 7th October 2010. Knowing the fact that LPR turn around time is around 6 months, just want to guess probability of getting LPR. My details are as below,

1) Nationality :- Indian.
2) Qualification :- Bachelor of Engineering ( Telecom ).
3) Years of Exp :- 8
4) Domain :- IT Infrastracture ( PMP Certified ).
5) Family :- Wife ( Sr. Software Tester with Patni Computers ) and a daughter.

Can anyone comment on probability of receiving LPR. This is first time I am applying for PR for any country.

Thanks for your comments.

Cheers
Vivek

I was rejected within 3 months, I hold a master in business administration and a master in information technology from a top-50 uni.

I guess they look at more than only education, you have a family which I think helps you (son is more preferred though).

From all the forums I follow regarding LPR at that time, only 1 Malaysian guy was approved and all tens of others I spoke to were rejected instantly or didnt get any response for 9 months+.

Its a lottery, I hope that you will win....

Unless you are a clone, it won't help your chances or figuring out your chances at all. There is not a set published points chart for ICA so unless each and every application/history/family/family makeup are all the same you now have no more idea than before. Additionally, trying to figure your "percentages" will only lead to giving you indigestion and heartburn/break. You would do best to apply and just go about your business like you never bothered to apply and then worry about it should you later get positive news. Who knows, life might through you a better opportunity further down the road.

Don't feel sad if you are rejected. If you are good in your field (IT Infrastructure) there are loads of jobs here. Many people in Singapore are talented, but are specialists in parts of the infrastructure. Very few got their hands on the bigger picture and the dependencies between them. (network, storage, virtualization, fail-over).

I am in the same field and I only uploaded my resume on monster. In 2 weeks, two companies called me for an interview and 2 emailed me and asked for a callback, I did not even apply myself.

I did not say that my employment pass will be approved or anything like that, I just want to mention that in your profession, LPR rejection is not the end of the world. Especially banks are hiring IT people like it was 2006.

LPR Application

Postby Rahul R » Wed, 01 Jun 2011 4:36 am

Hello guys,

I just applied for LPR last week ie 25th May 2011.

The agent i applied through tells me that it will definitely be out with the defined time frame of 6 months, since after the recent elections in Singapore the processing rate for LPR applications has become quicker.

Also would be glad if successful or unsuccessful candidates would share their experiences and grievances.

Btw am an Indian Citizen with a couple of years experience working in India. However i have stayed in Singapore for a few years under a student pass..

Best for luck people ..

Regards
Rahul R

Yeah quicker than Speedy Gonzales. More likely a rejection than approval. Moreover you are Indian Citizen which is now a scapegoat for many grouses of taking the local jobs. Anyhow since you have gone thru and applied please do let us know how you get on so that we can inform others in similar situation

Did you use any monster service so that companies can see your resume at first hand or similar? I have also uploaded my resume - just general one- and its been months but no call, no response from any company.

6 months and a General Election in Singapore can make lots of difference.

Hi all,

Are you sure processing time for LPR is 6 months?
I have been waiting my LPR outcome since July 2009. Until now my LPR application is still pending since July 2009 from iEnquiry ICA website.
For your information, so far I received 3 letters from ICA saying that my application is still under consideration.

Can anyone comments for the possible outcome in near future?

Thank you in advanced!
