Absolutely none of the information you are asking for is going to help you one iota on your own application. All applications are different and ICA doesn't devulge their points allocations or methodology. The do that to prevent tailor made applications (like you are trying to do).

This website is not the best place to do a survey of that kind because this website is visited either by regulars or people who have a problem with their PR application. So you are never gonna reach your target audience.

I can help. I applied in June of 2007. I got my PR in September of 2007. I'd been working for 2.5 years. The rest is none of your business.

Is this what you wanted to know?

To give you my perspective. I am here since Jul 2009(1 and half years. When I came here they were still giving out PRs quite easily. At that time the advice was wait for 6 months accumulate 6 months payslips and then apply. After 6 months they started tighening and it became like wait for 1 year. After 1 year more tightening and it became 2 years. Now I have completed one and half years and my friends who have completed 2 years have been rejected. So now its like no matter what, only a miracle only will get you a PR.

Having said that I dont have any motivation to apply for PR at the moment as my wife has already got a job on DP. Had she not got, then PR would have been a motivation. I would have liked to buy a HDB, but now with the 5 years minimum stay rule, that also is thrown out of the window.

So really it makes no difference for me whether I am on EP or PR as long as my EP gets renewed every year.

It is the best not to give some false, unjustified hopes so what these guys are doing is exactly what you need. Whether you like it or not is a different story.

If we went around blowing smoke up your arses, and you are ultimately rejected, who you gonna dislike for giving you false hope? On the flip side, if we give you the honest skinny, rough as it might be, at least, if you beat the odds, you feel tonnes better. If it comes to pass you are rejected, at least it doesn't come as a shock to your system. If you listen to noobs here, who have no inkling of what's really happening here, you do so at your own peril.

I have been on this forum nearly for the past 2 years and have been following the comments and advises that SMS, MS and KSL and others have been giving regarding Visas,PR and few others.The advises that they give are based on their experience and knowledge and have been accurate and spot on.

The advises that they give might be hard to digest at times, but they are true and reasonable. Believe me in this !

They may be harsh at times , but if you search and read through the forum you would know that they would have replied to the same question for more than N times and that is why they are a bit harsh when the same has been asked.

I am not writing this to support anyone. Just my 2 cents of what I felt

I think you do but we are not against them.. Just that, sometimes its not good to always hear of one always on the echo of someone.

You can always go to the angry board and have the locals there tell you where to go and not let the departure gate at changi hit you in the butt on the way out. :-|

Or, you will have to learn to take the good with the bad. When most who come here with their hat in their hands, and are too damned lazy to use the search function, or think, because their name is spelled differently that their case is "different" well, we have the patience of Job, but even Job had his limits. Common sense would go a long way with some of the applicants who come here. In fact, I sometimes think that the lack of common sense is what got them rejected in the first place. I wonder if any one of you has any idea of how much time we spend, volunteering our time while working full time jobs as well. Have you ever bothered to look at the time stamps on our posts? You hate to get echos, we hate to get people who ask the same questions that have been answered umpteen times in as many days. I sometimes feel sorry for the employers.

OH, for the earlier poster, we are not here to dispense hope. We are here to dispense the facts as we see them. It's up to you to evaluate your chances and develop hope or not. You want hope, go to church.
