Applying for PR

Postby S.S. » Thu, 22 Mar 2012 2:23 pm

Hi,

My husband is the main appliciant and applying for PR with baby (10 months old) as well.
Husband holding P2 pass and I'm holding Q1 pass.

In 2009 year we (my husband and me) had applied but got rejected and in the letter mentioned like re-try in time of 2 years.
During that time i just came to singapore in 3 months of time and no employment.
And in 2010 we did appeal but again got rejected.

And now this year we'll be applying for PR.
The positives to this application are:
(1) my employment (Q1 pass).
(2) i done my Master's in part time.
(3) new born baby girl
(4) My husband pass changed from Q1 to P2.
(5) No resedential address change

My husband is working in singapore for morethan 5 years and myself is in singapore for 2years.

I've the following queries to clarify. Appreciate someone can answer.

(1) what are the chances for the approval of PR?
(2) We would like to enclose rejection letters in the new application.
can do that?
(3) Unfortunately my company sent me for EP renewal which i don't have EP card with me now and the collection date is next to the PR appointment.
Will ICA accept with the EPSC form? and later on will show the card & submit the photocopy of EP card.

Thank you.

1.You had not mentioned any thing about your Origin.
2. Chances for PR approval - No one can guess. Only ICA Decides
3. Was your child born here or abroad?
4. Dont need to attach your rejection letter.ICA will have a copy of it,in your file.
5. Better to wait for the EP card and submit the application after you receive it. May be try rescheduling the application by few weeks?
6. Also you had not mentioned about what you and your husband are working as in Singapore.

All the above points would matter for PR Approval

Good Luck !

Well, your chances should be much better this time than last. You now have the proper amount of time spent here to make it look like a proper application, and your income raise is another boost. I'm not sure why you're asking about the rejection letters. ICA will know who they rejected already, so don't worry about telling them.

Determining factor will probably be your race(s) unfortunately.

S.S.: If your husband is in the research area, the chances are higher. Going by the success of a few friends who are with A-Star, NUS and NTU ..

BTW, A guy posted the following, in another place ;)

Well good question, there are 9 ways of getting PR.

...

3rd = Investment PR invest 2 Million Singapore dollars with Economic Development Board you will get your PR in 3 months

and all your family members as well.

7th= This route is through Job and waiting period may be 18 months to apply for PR. Jobs S pass and EP are eligible the

salary must exceed 2800S$+ after 18 month you can apply for PR directly to Immigration.


Caveat : take above advise with a bit of humour .. :)

Looking at the cases that I've encountered, it seems like the chances are much better if the child is born in Singapore.

Not really. For one thing, PR is not inherited from birth. Another thing, Singapore is maintaining racial quotas.

If you are going to reside in Singapore for long, why are you going back to India to give birth? Why not just give birth here? I don't claim to speak for ICA but if I see a PR applicant going back to her home country to give birth, it raises many questions in my mind. Maybe when you are counting how much it costs to give birth here, you should count the intangible factors of how giving birth to you child outside of Singapore might affect the PR application.

Might be a coincidence but all of the PR applications that I've heard being rejected lately had their children in their home country. All that I've seen approve, gave birth in Singapore. Of course opinions are like **holes. Everyone has one, they all stink. My opinion is that if you have a minus in your application (of not being the flavour of the month), why add even more minus to your application?
