Chance of getting PR approval

Postby roy18 » Thu, 19 Apr 2012 8:04 am

No.

1. You've only been here a year.
2. If you'll search the other threads, aside from the fact that your post is too general, there are other factors at play with which ICA determines if you're PR material or not.
3. We've advised countless people asking if they can be PR or not. The regulars are getting tired of answering the same question over and over.

Hi Roy18,

If you're a Malaysian chinese, just go for it. Ask your employer to fill up the Annex A form and submit it together with your application.

Again, this is my personal opinion. If i'm you, I'll go ahead and apply. Usually one needs to wait 6months for a reply. Worst case, 1 year.

I know the feeling. Kancheong and anxious rite? Relax. We do our best and leave the rest to God. God willing, you will get your PR. It's a matter of waiting only. If you get, congrats, if you don't get, reapply. It's not the end of the world. There are more important stuffs out there to think and worry about :)

If it's all in the hands of God then why the hell are you coming to this forum asking for opinion? :?

JR8: I asked for clarification, not opinion. :) I asked about the fees and also the supporting documents. Did I ask whether I should apply even though I have work less than 2 years? Did I asked whether I should include my spouse in my application? heck! Read carefully. Haha. You need glasses if you dont have one. And if you have, time to go to the optometrist

Roy: The choice is yours. You are old enough to make your own judgment. You can ask for opinions, clarification etc, but in the end of the day the choice is yours. No one can influence your decision. Be firm.

Not to say you apply, if rejected it's the end of the world. If you really got rejected, then wait and reapply again. You still have your job, your pay still goes own.

No you didn't you went into a holding-hands God-circle with Roy and said it's all in God's hands.

p.s. You'll get plenty of opinion here, opinion as to the truth. You better get used to it if planning on sticking around.

JR8: Seems that you're man with no religion. A person without a religion is considered as a communist. And Singapore does have concern with communist. :)

Anyway, no hard feelings. I think better to stop all these. Fellow forum-ers can make their judgement on what they want to do. I will still give my honest and personal comments :)

Interesting concept, but unfortunately wrong:
There are (were) religious communists, as well as atheists (= people who believe there is no god) and freethinkers (= people who do not conform with an existing religion) who are not at all communists. I am in that latter category.

As far as I know, Singapore has no problem with extremists of all political sides as long as they come from elsewhere. And, LKY was a communist in his early career - some of that can still be seen in Singapore's social policies.

Bullshit, the PAP started as a Leninist party. After which the cuckoo who took over the nest only 'had problems' with anyone who prejudiced his dominance of the nest.

You do know what Leninism is don't you?

Seems that this thread is getting irrelevant. Ok la JR8, better put a stop on this as this discussion will lead to nowhere :)

Yeah ben, you bit off more than you can chew, now it's time to crawfish outta here to salve the little self-respect you have left.

For the record the REAL STATISTICS were as follows: 29,265 PR passes were issued in 2010 - a sharp drop from the 59,460 in 2009 and some 79,000 granted in 2008. So, in all probability your 8 people you know were probably Malaysian Chinese who, in reality, aren't much different than their Singaporean brethren, hence the favoritism.

Oh, and Dog has nothing to do with it. In fact or in faith. And you better read up on Singapore history a wee bit if you want to be a PR here. You must have gotten your information the same place you got your data for PR approvals. You are really confused about religions in Singapore. Malaysia, maybe, but not here. Athiests, Agnostics, Free Thinkers are not necessarily Communists or Stalinists or Socialists. :roll:

I'm surprised that you guys come back with so much comments and criticism. I'm okay with that and open to criticism.

SMS, there's no point debating. It will continue to ding dong for a while I guess. I guess you're the "hot" type of person. My personal advice is relax and accept criticism. No one is perfect including me. Be a better person and improve. It takes time though.

God has nothing to do with it? Well, it's your statement. I'm not going to question or challenge what you said. When the day and time comes, you will know.


- roy18 asked whether he can apply for PR
- nakatago said no.
- I said, go ahead. Just do it. We can just do our best, apply and leave the rest to God.
- nakatago said if all is in the hands of God, then why come to this forum asking for opinion, and all the ding dong started.

No freedom of speech? I can't even give my personal opinion?

Sure you can give your opinions. You've been doing that all evening, lot's of noise, signifying nothing except repetition. We allow you to continue, that is your right.

We may or may not agree with you, but all of us will defend your right to post as long as you don't get vulgar, or racist here. But, by the same token, we also have those same freedoms here. So, you can give as good as you can, but have to expect the same in return as well. The big difference is we try to inject REAL published data to support our claims where possible.

You were doing okay until you tried to inject the supernatural into it, which is a load of hooey and we all know it. But As you ARE from Malaysia, the land of Bomohs, we can understand your need to call on the supernatural. :P

Have a good evening.
