Chance of my PR

Postby phan thao » Fri, 08 Mar 2013 5:05 pm

Hi guys, I'm been stalking this forum for long time and now decided to register to ask about my situation.

I am female, 25 years old, Vietnamese race, been living in Singapore for 5.5 years (with 3 years studying, 2.5 years working till present)

I am very unlucky that even though I had tuition bond with Singapore, I graduated in 2009 right on the time the Government decided to tighten PR inflow (previously students with tuition bond from MOE would have PR invitation letter when they graduated).

Now I wish to apply PR once my bond is finished (going to complete this year September) and I am in the step of preparation.

A bit details:

_current salary: $2450/month (but annual income around $38k). I am going t o have my salary pump up soon in the next 2 months, expecting $2700/month
_2.5 years working as graphic designer; 3 years studying at Lasalle college of the Arts
_holding S pass, but my Spass is going to expire soon and the company is trying to apply EP for me

I wonder how is my chance for getting PR? Also, if I apply alone as single or I get marry first and apply PR together with my husband, which one will have higher chance? I have no plan for marriage so soon but if it can help with PR application then we'll proceed with this idea.

About my boyfriend: Vietnamese race, around 3.5 years working in Singapore in IT field, salary $3.8k/month. He got rejected PR application few years ago.

My plan is to have baby 3 years later, so I want to get PR before having baby

Hope to get some good advice from you guys. Thank you for reading this :)

Phan thao, I too have become an expert in PR scenario by reading this forum. The other posters are going to discourage you. But don't loss hope. "Saint" will be positive in giving you pleasant answer. Zzm, will ask more questions. SMS will say negatively, and he has got mad-scientist to approve what he said. Regards

Mi Amigo,

What he forgot to point out is what kind of success stats our various stereotyped posts have. But, that would have taken some thought processes for him to try to think of that, so this is all we get. Now we've told him what he needs to do, let's see if he can actually contribute something of value to the forum instead of just being a douche. :lol:

What you forgot here is the guys like SMS/MS got the reputation for a reason. If you were to read their posts especially in the complicated cases you will know that they speak based on knowledge.

I think MS "quite obviously" knows how ICA works better than anyone else outside of ICA.

Sorry enslaved, no questions to ask.

Op, your chances are better of approval after getting married. The combined income will look better than yours alone. Much better chances if you have a baby boy. Overall chances are still not amazingly high, so dont make lifelong decisions just to improve PR chances.

I heard no Vietnamese got PR since 2010 except one case but he is VN with Chinese race. I myself applied in 2011. My profile might be more like your bf (local graduate, IT field, salary about the same range, little experience) but I got married and in the end it was rejected after a year of pending. Anw this shouldn't prevent you from trying and should be better if follow those seniors' advices like ZZM or SMS above

Thank hippo84. What I heard is only within my social circles, I and my friends are a bit disappointed so it's great to hear a positive story.
Can you share a bit more about her working industry and salary range? did she got pr invitation letter? (about half of NUS students graduated during 2010 got that letter as far as I know)

Edited: be more specific

PR & Citizens privileges to a certain extent will not be the same.....PRs will still have to pay more than citizens at some point of time....in terms of education, housing, etcs etcs.

Good luck in ur PR citizen.

I noticed that you were quite happy to take SMS's advice when you had lots of questions in the past. And since then, your contribution to the forum has been what exactly (other than repeating information that others have already posted)? :roll:

she didn't have pr invitation letter...she applied after 2 years working here...company is trading firm (MNC)....salary range: at least 6-7k per month...

for your case, i guess wait for few more years after marriage or after having boy baby will have more chance :)
