PR Chances

Postby 0percent » Mon, 28 Oct 2013 7:12 pm

Hi all -- would be grateful for any thoughts on my chances (which I understand are slim until 2-3 years after getting married)

Race: Chinese
Nationality: American
Income: $6250
Length of stay in Singapore: 2.5 years on EP, then went back to America for further 3 years of further studies, then most recently 1.25 years on EP
Length of marriage: 2 months (I know this is a huge negative)
Spouse's Race: Chinese
Spouse's Nationality: Singaporean
Spouse's Income: $4500
No children yet
Bought resale flat

PNGMK,

I'll see your 'Maybe', and raise you a 'probably'! :wink:

Both flavours of ABCs find it pretty easy, especially if married to a local Chinese as well, but granted they will probably tell him to wait till he's been married 2 years.

As a guide, take a look at the criteria for gaining a LTVP+ where they prefer marriages between SC and foreigners of at least 3 years where no SC children are involved. This is a stepping stone to PR so you could say the same criteria could apply to you. You are doing everything the right way at the moment and gaining plus points along the way so would you both want to chance a wasted first PR apllication after only a couple momths of marriage? Rushing in to this could result in disappointment, frustration and resentment towards the Gahmen when waiting and being patient will no doubt end in a positive result.

Just as a guide for others searching this forum, my PR application was approved. I submitted it in late November and it was approved two months later. Thanks all.
