I guess the important question would be, from ICA's point of view, what is your basic salaries? This the only thing that will be relevant with regards to your income. Bonuses and commissions will not be taken into consideration as it's too variable.

These are our combined basic salaries. Do you think there is a chance considering already 5.5 months have passed and application still pending.

Any idea what is the average time for an answer for an Indian Applicant

It could take 11 months. Its tougher to predict the outcome nowadays. I have seen people with 6k a month salary being approved and at the same time people with 8k a month salary reject. Both Indians.

Unless you want to raise your family here and have your kids(son) serve NS, dont bother applying. You will only be adding more fuel to the fire if you get your PR and then plan on returning home for good. PR and EP system was quite abused since 2008 esp from subcontinental region.
Just my 2 cents.

I would have thought you would have had a good chance but that your stay may be a little short still.
Good luck.

But I would assume that ICA will link the two applications.

ICA doesn't consider your bonus in your PR/SC application? That sucks because my annual salary is blown up due to the high bonus I get.

They won't consider it even though it would show up on your tax assessment?

No. Why would they. Next year you might be in a recession and have no bonus at all. Therefore, maybe your basic wouldn't be enough to sustain. It's actually a valid point.

Yes , they should as our details are there in each other's applications.

Probably one way of reducing randomness of selection

Cheers

ICA expect PR applications to be submitted on a family basis. Hedging your bets by submitting 2 individual applications thinking you'll have a better chance of at least getting one approved is going to be picked up straight away and most likely both rejected. The ICA know exactly why you want at least one of you approved for PR.
