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 abovephan thao wrote: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
This is not true. I have seen those from Vietnam with race listed as Vietnamese get PR in mid 2012. They are however at the director level within a company that employs a large amount of Singaporeans/PRs.

At a certain income level, anyone can get a PR. For those below company director level, my suspicion is if you qualify for a new PEP and put in your three tax assessments, you'd have a decent shot.
Although maybe not this week.
