Either 2 years on EP or a huge salary in his homecountry for at least 6 last months. If I'm not missing anything...
Marriage with a Singaporean doesn't give anything...

3,5 K and MNC - this doesn't match together... even for MOM.

And yes, it looks like the govt wants you to suffer like that. It was discussed many times recently, and I know a few people who prepared to leave SG for good because of that.

The company will be fine without him, don't worry (since it is really MNC).
Still I do not understand 3,5 K salary. Our bank gives much more to fresh grads, I had a lot more when I just came to SG over 3 years ago (small startup, not MNC).

I bet the officer from MOM considering your husband's application thinks that you're smart lady and before marrying with a guy who is eligible for only a tourist visa in SG, you weighed all possible scenarios of how you gonna live you life further ahead, even if your husband is not in SG. So the officer who is of good opinion of you, will reject your husband's application, the other one who think you're stupid, will approve it out of compassion.

Sorry and forgive me if I offended you, but it seems like you've created a lot of troubles on your own head (or ass). SG government will not allow anybody to sneak into the country as a fiance, otherwise there would be a lot of fake marriages in Singapore.

From your previous posts I found out that your husband is Pakistani. Be aware that they are on special "account" with MOM. Unfortunately, color of your face is always playing a decisive role if you're dealing with SG government.

I'm sorry but it seems that you are overlooking that there is a specific category for PR applications under " Spouse and unmarried children (below 21 years old) of a Singapore Citizen (SC)/SingaporePermanent Resident (SPR) "

Under that category there is no requirement for EP or any kind of work pass or any salary. I'm sure high salary and degrees wouldn't do any harm either.

I cannot say what are the chances, but still for the OPs point, there is not much to lose, so why not apply for the PR for the husband.

I'd guess the relatively short time of marriage after applying might work against the application. and of course nationality and race too. I'd assume sponsors current job and salary would have some impact too, assuming she is working.

Second we got married in Dubai not in singapore.

and 3rd i am also a pakistan by blood as my GF was a pakistani.

Dude is getting his own share for his white post-Soviet mug, your husband his own. That is Singapore, and it doesn't matter where you married.
For categorization of human kind you better browse MOM site, not ICA. That is more relevant for you since you were talking about work passes.

He also like to throw around racist remarks and has an extremely bad attitude. Also, Pakinstanis and Indians and Bangladeshis are not exactly the flavour of the month in Singapore. You were lucky to manage to get him an LTVP.

As a Singaporean, you should know these types of things before you marry overseas or in Singapore. Singapore does not owe you a thing when you marry a foreigner. In fact, they would rather you immigrate, truth be know. So, you might start weighing your options as if he cannot even get an S pass, he is up the creek without a paddle. Unless you are earning at least 3K/mo you don't stand a chance of getting him a PR on family ties as you have to show you are able to support him as he cannot get a job. Last thing Singapore needs are more unemployed people. If you have children, you would probably need to be able to show income in the neighbourhood of 4.5 to 5K/month as the costs of raising a family here are not cheap.
