Well its not a big deal, as its quite easy for your wife to get sgc as she is prc and a spouse of sg citizen. It is just a matter of time. Anyway congrats

If it's not such a big deal, then why have you been rejected. Your bedside manner sucks.

Im not sure if my words look wrong for you to say as a bad manner, but if it looks bad i apologize and would like to correct myself. My intention was just to say spouse of a citizen is most likely to get a pr and sgc later in time after some years of marriage. Not saying all spouse of sgc get approved for pr, but only very few get rejected for pr over extended period like 20yrs or more(based on reading the posts here and from some personal experience).

Given the fact that the 'sgc' spouse applies pr for a 'prc' wife, getting pr approval is quite high chance given the ethnicity and spousal route of OP. Hence, i used the words 'not a big deal'. But it is a big deal for non-spousal sponsor applicants of non-favoured ethnicity to get pr. Nevertheless, I dont undermine the struggles and emotions that a spousal sponsor faced for their pr application, but i also say that the struggles are even harder for a foreigner to get pr without a local sponsor.

And regarding your question as to why i was rejected, i have to say that i applied pr some time back in 2018 and i think it got rejected. One of the reasons is that i am not married to a local to sponsor and also im indian, so nothing surprising to get rejected. Anyway, i have a pending application now and will update when i hear the result from ica gods.

Hi SMS and the team of admins and moderators,

Most of us who stumbled upon here would have started on similar concerns.
Looking back on my past posts would bring back so much memories of my initial struggles.

Seeing SMS/MS posting a reply here was like getting tips for exam questions back then. Now that years have passed by, sincerely grateful for such a forum being available back then.

This is to express my gratitude to the team efforts and may everyone be blessed with good health and happiness.

Cheers 🍻 to a great 2024.
