Hmm I am applying PR for my girlfriend who is an Indian citizen working in Singapore as a air stewardess.

She has been flying in Singapore for about 5 years now.

She applied twice but was rejected. I am Singaporean. I think if I were to marry her, it would be easier for her to apply for a PR.

But previous years, her older colleagues were able to get their PR rather easily. This is probably due to the immigration lax in the previous years.

However I noticed that they might tighten the requirements as they need to appease the angry voters due to sky rocketing properties and congested public transport system.

Not only PRs and citizenship. I guess working pass will also have a higher bar now.

Thanks everybody for your advices.

According to this information, ICA would have many different criteria to evaluate applicants.

Other than race, tax returns, income...there are others contributing to the final decision as well.
I understand that these are just few transparent criteria that we can see and guess, and there are many others non-transparent that nobody knows. So it means that one might fail this but fulfill others and eventually, it all depends on the weight of every criteria.
Anyway, I've just tried to keep my fingers crossed.

Hi all,

Just a bit curious, is there any possibility that the PR is given to husband (or wife) and rejected to his/her spouse when they applied PR together?

Just reading your question again, when 2-3 people apply together as a family, they approve or reject the whole application and not individually. just my 2 cents

Neither of us knows. I see the glass as half full, he sees it as half empty, that's all.

Your questions was phrased as "is there any possibility". My answer is sure. There's a possibility. Probability? That's another story.
