PR application

Post by rogery » Tue, 31 Jan 2012 11:29 am

Hi friends,

I've got my PR 6 years ago, just renewed last year valid till 2016. My salary is only $3K+. My wife and son are in Singapore under LTVP since 07/2010, also just renewed their LTVP in 07/2011 valid till 07/2012. Unfortunately my son was born in my wife's howetown, not in Singapore due to high cost.

My wife owns a business overseas hence during last 2 years she and our child travel between Singapore and her hometown quite frequently, is it a BIG minus point for their PR applications? Should I apply PR for them now or wait until she can station in Singapore longer?

And having a child is minus or plus point? Should I apply them separately or together?

Appreciate your advices. TIA,

Travel to home town frequently eh? My guess is that your family holds Malaysian citizenship, right?

You mentioned that you have a son, which is a plus point (for NS reason obviously). My personal suggestion is to apply together.

This is quite common. Continue on LTSVP for wifey. Some may take 5 year before PR approve

Eight applications in two years?!?
You beat even me for stubbornness!!!
But unfortunately re-applying without new information or change of status is not just a waste of time, but will count in your disfavour in Singapore government eyes.
