My wife's PR was not successful. Result came in after long wait of 8 to 9 months time. The official letter just says "We regret to inform you that your application is not successful" without much details on when to re-apply.

I also find these statements in the letter to be completely new from those motherhood statements which has been previously used for rejections. Any thoughts?!

My wife's sponcer PR was approved end July 2015. We applied for the 2nd time in April 2015. Now she is holding a full time job. But we still wanted to go through sponcer PR channel.

Congratulations. It looks like you may have just applied too soon the first time. (new marriage - could have been a marriage of convenience) By giving it another 2 years, you have shown you are a stayer AND that you are not 'desperate' to get PR (You might have been, but common sense prevailed). Again, Congrats.

Congratulations OP!

I have seen a sudden surge of PR approvals. Is it too early to suggest that there's been a policy change? Or is it just the after effects of the strong election mandate for PAP this year?
