Almost zero.

-> you're Indian. The gahmen says there are too many foreigners already, more so Indians, so they won't get some more.
-> Q1? Implies you don't make much money to matter.

Sorry but that's just how they they see it. It sucks, we know.

Hi Dude, I have gotten my PR for about one year plus now, however I am a Malaysian so the quota for my nationality may be higher.

At the moment of my application, my Salary was a miserable basic of SGD$2.5k not including transport allowance and commission. So your salary in comparison plus inflation is not too far off furthermore it only need to indicate that you can be self sufficient to reside in this island.

More importantly is your qualification and experience which fits into the sector that Singapore wants to develop, ICA would want to keep us in hopes that we will move and strengthen that sector.

My qualifications are Basic Deg in Biochem/Med, and minor post grad stuff in business, SG isn't exactly breaking frontiers in life-science research, not even in Asia and most of researchers in SG that I knew are foreign, so I got my approval in less than 2 months. Anyway I'm in medical sales now.

Hope that helps.

Good luck in your application do update me just for my curiosity.

I would not refute 100% your analysis but I think your race and nationality is the most important factor here if not determinant factor
