It looks like indeed the 2008 year is the best time to apply. Now that the rules has been tightened yr by yr. Now for me, I am 47 yrs old this year. I got my PR in November 2008 and I am considered very lucky to get it on time. However, I'm renewing my PR later on Sep 2013 as my PR is expiring.
I heard from many people outside that it will be hard for someone who is above 45 yrs old and only earning $2100 salary as I do. Under PTS, Older applicant needs to earn higher income of minimum $3k above. Moreover, I'm still single and not married to a Singapore Citizen.
However, I am renewing my PR and I heard there is a slight different between an existing PR and newcomer. Is it true or renewing is almost the same nowadays with the newcomer? If yes, I think I got very high chance of not being renewed!
I need some advise! Thank u.
At that salary level, I dont think you are paying any tax at all and there is a reason why they ask for 3 years of tax returns for PR renewal.
But then again, if you had sinked your roots here, as in married and produced kids etc it would have been positive.
I havent seen evidence of people being denied renewal for low salary. So I would say its more like 75-25. 75 in your favour
Google for this phrase "No plans to refuse renewal of PR re-entry permit: Grace Fu"
