Postby Lakku » Thu, 22 Nov 2012 3:00 pm

we have applied 2 days back for PR .rejected before in early 2011.
Now applied along with my wife and 1 year daughter.
Nationality : Indian
Salary : around 11k (including my wife)
We both are in IT (Software Engineers) working.
came singapore 4 years back..
Married and got my wife 2 years back.

What are the chances of getting PR...as we are planning to stay for long-term.. as we love to stay in this country...

Why were you rejected 2 years back? Did you not include your wife? Did you get a huge hike in salary after that?

Based on several other threads, I guess some will say "close to nil".

Unless your previous rejection came with a note saying please reapply after 1 year, I am afraid that your chances are around 0%

For the previous rejection, they have not mentioned anything regarding the time period for the reapply..

For the first time I have included my wife.. but she is not working at that time.. but now she is working.

His wife must be 4- 4.5k salary and he on 6.5 - 7k range(EP P2). I would say you would have had a decent chance if had directly applied now, instead of applyting earlier.

Your previous rejection must have been due to bad timing with the GE coming up. Not sure what implications previous rejections have.I would say hang in there and hope for the best.

Hey, Now we got a letter from ICA asking about my parents, siblings details as well as my wife's parents,siblings details.
After, hearing this from ICA... can the chances be higher.??

No.

They want to know the likelihood of your family moving to Singapore as well...which can be seen as baggage/strain on Singapore. If your family fits a certain profile (no one here knows what that really is), your chances will actually be lower.

Yes, we know it's not fair.
