First of all, did you get permission from MOM to marry the girl? If no, you will never get PR.

Secondly, You would have to be married at least two years before submitting your applications for PR as prior to that, it will look like a marriage of convenience. While you know otherwise, the ICA do not. And they are super suspicious of PRC, VN, Burmese and Filipina girls looking for permanent tickets to Singapore. It's just one of those things that the gahmen are overly protective of their citizens, to the point of eventually chasing them away to other countries. What to do? Just wait until you have been married AT LEAST two before applying again.

Thanks for the swift reply. Yes, I did check with MOM and they say it's ok as she was on S- pass years back and WP was after we were married.

Then I would suggest you just leave it were it is at the moment and once you pass the two year marriage mark then apply again.

Pushing and appealing before then will just give the impression of desperation on her part, which would not look that good to ICA.

Yes, you are right. My application was rejected this morning from what i see online. Should have waited till the 2 yrs mark then apply. Do you think the rejected reason was partly due to the recently protest at Hong Lim park last sat?

Have appeal after 2nd day of rejection from ICA. Went to see the officer and attach new letter from Doctor that my wife was 2 mths pregnat. Status has been change from "rejected" to "pending".
It's been 3 month+ and still pending...is it because my baby has yet to come out? Btw, it's a boy. Does the baby gender help? Please kindly advice.

Yes it helps. And the fact that it's been change to Pending means they are reconsidering. It DOESN'T mean that acceptance is a foregone conclusion however. But they are looking at it. And, it would not surprise me if they leave it pending until after the birth of the child and if it's a boy whether you give the boy citizenship at birth.

Thank you SMS. My boy will be SG citizen and that's my intention. However, if application still been rejected then I would be really lost and speechless. If so, what would be your advice?

Kenza, that is something I cannot honestly give you as each and every person is different. I've been here over 30 years, I've been a PR for 20 of them. But it took the better part of 11 years to get my PR. Go figure, Both of my kids are Singaporeans and were in the local school system (boy & girl). I honestly don't expect too many to have the fortitude to keep hanging in there for that long, just because I did it, doesn't mean it would work for everybody. Nor should it.

Best advice, always make a Plan B up till you all get citizenship because everything up to that point is temporary in nature and can be rescinded by the gahmen any time they feel like, including PR. For this government, nothing is sacred except their own OTT salaries.

Congratulations kenza.

Looks like my premonition regarding the birth of the baby boy and promptly being added to your application may well have had a lot to do with it. Regardless, I'm glad you had the patience to wait it out. Again, Congrats!

:cool:
