Citizenship Chances

Postby wendy.lee » Mon, 26 Aug 2013 2:09 am

Thanks for reading my post.

I wanted to check on what you all think about citizenship chances for my husband. I am a Singapore Citizen (by birth) and we are married since the last 5 years now. We do not have any children.

I have stated some information about him below:

Age: 31
Income: S$108k per year
Duration in Singapore: 6 years (Last 2 as PR)

Qualifications:
Masters Degree in Business from Ireland
Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer
PMP Certified

Race: Punjabi from Pakistan

We are planning to apply by the end of this year. What do you guys think his chances are like?

I am not very new in this community but, from what I have discovered until now, he doesn't have a chance until at least 2017. Unless the government changes its policies regarding SC applications drastically.

Mystic River : How do you define that he does not have a chance ? OP hubby has been on 2nd REP. good job, smart, SG wife.
The only thing not there is a son.
I failed to understand your rationale . Worse is you have set a date of 2017.
How , in god's grace, you come up with this date ?

Good Grief. If you do not have clue what you a rambling about ,for god's sake, do not reply .

Hmm, if I understood correctly, her hubby has only been a PR for 2 years.

"Duration in Singapore: 6 years (Last 2 as PR)"

Won't that mean that he has only been a PR for 2 years and needs to be a PR for another 4 years before he can apply?

Ok , my bad , if this is what is being meant to be. Apologies

Yes, a standard PR to citizenship guideline is min. 6 years which equates to 2 REP renewal . However there are cases whereby it was fast track after 2 year as PR
PR under family ties has more merit.

There is no change in this guideline since 1981
