Actually it doesn't make sense at all, but we don't start the threads either. :?

I was looking for some info like, usually how long would people stay in Singapore before they apply for PR & other stuff,

As we know ICA's decision making is not very transparent, it is through this collective info from rejected & approved cases, we can get an impression of what they are looking at - & this again is my opinion :D

The standard guideline is 6 month in Singapore on EP you are allowed to apply for PR. But you need 3 years Income Tax too. Hence the goalpost is as wide as the eye can see.
No two application is the same. Yes, we do collect all anecdotal evidence from forumers, the newspaper, update infos on the ground from ICA and MOM among other things.
It does not mean it will be foolproof or water tight but at least it gives other would be abuser and genuine applicant on their own situation.
Based on the demographic of SG racial ethnicity and recent GE plus the rumbling on the grounds certain groups are targeted for this upheaval of racial percentage. This concludes what we have received from forumers and what is being said and done on the ground to inform others of the current situation.
If you are thinking of formulating your own plan to strategies your next move and all evidences here to make it foolproof then I would say you are either a fool or foolish enough to believes this will work.
In short, dream on coz it is pure madness as no two application is the same

PR Approved

Found out from the ICA-iEnquiry website that my PR application is approved. It took close to 5 months to materialize....Not too bad for an Indian citizen, given the circumstances !!

Congrats.

Since someone is inevitably going to ask for Mr Angry's particulars, he already posted them here:

Hi everyone. I have been hanging around this forum for quite sometime now, albeit on another nick. I just got my PR approved over the weekend and I thought I should create a new nick and start contributing to the knowledge database here ( yes, I see the irony of joining the 'expats' forum after becoming a PR, but I hope I am still welcome )

I submitted my application 6 months ago after 4.5 years in Singapore (first 4 years of which was on a student pass at the local university). Other details include recent tech graduate, single, nationality from the subcontinent, a Q1 EP (~ 3000 basic) and only 6 months full-time employment (as a researcher at the local university) at the time of application submission.

I was quite surprised with the result, considering the backlash. The kicker to all this is that I personally know of at least five other classmates (same background, job/salary/work-pass and nationality as me) who were also approved last week !

note to mods: do not mind the IP address, I am overseas on vacation. I could not wait to get back to Singapore before sharing the news.

Rev? Is that you? :P

OK, from the profile, it's obviously not. Just my little joke.

Congratulations.
Be careful what you wish for
