PR application- Chances of Success

Postby spongerob » Thu, 21 Feb 2013 4:44 pm

Dear all,

That’s my turn to ask your kind support to assess my chances of succeeding in my PR application:
I have applied last month along with my 2 boys to become a permanent resident.

Basic info:
1. European, Have been a P1 holder for the past 4 years.
2. Applying PR along with my 2 sons
3. Annual income above S$160K
4. Marine industry
5. Branch manager of a local company which I have registered in 2009.
The only problem I can see which might not make me enter into the perfect PR applicant profile is my matrimonial situation. I am currently separated with my wife (D-Pass) and divorce procedure is still going on.
Do you actually think this can be a big issue for the ICA.
Appreciate any feedback / comment.

Thanks

Appreciate any feedback / comment. Will she be staying Singapore after divorce? She will lose her DP if you get PR and in theory would have get some kind of pass on her own merits if she's wanting to stay in SIngapore
Thanks

Well, my intention is to support her to apply for a LTSVP. But if I don't do so she might have to return back to her country.. Since kids custody is involved it might sound a bit tricky for the ICA.. meaning to say issuance of the PR might not help her to stay in Singapore and influence custody issues.. thats my concern at this time.

I addition to my post I would like to had my company now have 10 staff when I was actually alone in 2009.. I hope this would also influence positively ICA.

Thanks

The composition of the staff is actually 50% local Vs 50% foreigners (mostly under E-Passes). Beside that i am a bit sceptical about custody matters which might bither ICA.TQ

Just received a call from ICA telling that application for my kids cannot be proceed based on my current situation, however they can go ahead with mine.
May be that is my optimistic mood, but I still take this as a good news for me... at least my application is not lost in the dust. haha
