Should we apply for PR?

Post by ndas.singapore » Mon, 06 Jan 2014 5:52 pm

Hi Guys

Please let’s know if we should apply for PR; I have gone through many similar Posts in this forum and quite convinced that getting PR is tough but still want to give it a try.

Main Applicant (me)
Important information as required in the PR form
Age : 33
Education : BE
working in a small Chip MFG Company ($1 billion)
Salary – 110K
On P1

Not so good points
In Singapore from 2012 Sep
Lived in 3 diff countries in last 5 year (2yrs in US, 1.5yrs in German)
Indian

Spouse
Age : 33
Education : BE
Working in an IT company
Salary – 84K
On p2
In Singapore from 2013 Mar
Indian
Last 5 years (India, US, UK)

Married for 4 years
No Kid

Reason : same as others….want to stay here long..very long…so many advantages compare to US/Europe/India

Is it bad for your future PR application if the first one is rejected ?

Thanks for your suggestion & reading this post.

If you are here for the long run, why apply so soon? Stay here for 5 years and then see if you still want to stay here and then apply.

Well the simple retort to that is it appears every year its becoming tougher. I made a mistake of waiting while 2 ppl I know with very similar profiles applied after 18 months of being here in mid 2012 and were approved within 3 months. So waiting appears to have side effect of perpetually tightening pr policy.
