How likely can I get PR?

Postby CIA_crypto » Mon, 23 Jul 2012 10:08 pm

Hi all,

My first attempt of LPR Family application was on July 2009 before I got a job on DEC 2009, and waited more than 2 years 3 months then received LPR rejected letter from ICA. The simple rejected letter. Did not mention anything.

I submitted family PR application again on May 2012, still pending.

Family profile
1. Me Myanmar nationality and my wife and two children are Chinese nationality
2. All Chinese Race
2. Both of us are Master Degree graduated from UK
3. Myself P2 (EP), earning 8K from beginning of this year and My wife Q1 (EP), earning 4.2K (work for two different company)
4. Two years tax return for me and my wife one year tax return.
5. Daughter 3 and half years old born in UK, Son 3 months plus born in Singapore.
6. Living in SG since mid 2009.

Please kindly share your opinion, what are my chances of getting PR based on above profile.

Thanks
CIA_CRYPTO

It can go both ways , mate ! I remembered you and you one of those unlucky ones
My gut feeling if ICA overlook your LPR rejection and summed up your credentials which I feel is weighs more and couple with a son , I do not see the reason you will get rejected . However sometimes things go beyond common sense. as of now 60/40 on approval rate against rejection
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.Yahoo !!!

Dear All,

Thanks for everything to contribute your valuable knowledge to us. Now I would like to share my happiness and joy to all forum reader.

After very long long patience of waiting, today received very tick envelop from ICA. In my PR approval letter the last point mentioned (extra joys info) as below

"We are pleased to inform you that you and your family member(s) are eligible to apply for Singapore Citizenship after two years of permanent residence in Singapore. You may submit your application for citizenship to the Registrar of Citizens, 6th Storey, ICA Building. We wish you and your family member(s) happiness and success in Singapore."

The above point mean, my whole family are welcome to join Singapore Citizenship after two years of PR? Anyone received same for the last point

Not to rain on your parade or anything, but it read exactly like the application criteria for and EP. the key phrase here is "you are eligible to apply" not "You are automatically qualified for obtain PR" There is quite a difference.

However, having said that, that is the whole purpose of getting PR (or should I say "supposed to be the whole purpose") therefore, if that is your intentions, after two more years have elapsed, apply for citizenship. The odds will be more in your favour though after you have renewed your REP the first time, e.g., around the 6th year of PR. I would say, and I think Mad Scientist would also concur, you would probably be a shoe-in. If you file after two years, you may well be successful, but you may also receive a letter asking you to wait a couple of years.

I'd go ahead and try after two years as they have indicated, but do not be discouraged if initially rejected and asking you to wait a couple of more years.
