4 Factors Affecting A Singapore PR Application

Singapore PR Application piechart

Many people believe that becoming a Permanent Resident (PR) is only a matter of luck. Hence, they do not take charge of the process and leave everything to fate. It gets even more frustrating especially when your application has been rejected years after years. You might be feeling hopeless and disheartened.

The truth is this: There are many criteria that affect your chances of getting your submission approved. Some of which you can’t control, while others you can be in charge of. Let’s take a look at how this complex process can be broken down into various internal requirements. By understanding and mastering the criteria that influence your success rate, you are one step away from fulfilling your dream of become a PR.


Uncontrollable Factors


The key profile factors that affect your chances of approval are your age, salary, length of stay and number of taxes paid in the country. Needless to say, these are all the things that cannot be changed as you can neither alter your age nor your salary. However, having a disadvantageous profile does not mean that it would automatically result in the rejection of your submission. There are many other things that you can improve on to heighten your success rate.


The government reviews the number of existing PR over the total local population and uses statistics in computing for the assigned yearly quota. The quota is confidential and adjusted periodically. There are certain skill sets that Singapore will try to accept at higher percentages, depending on the demands of the industries and direction of the nation at that moment.


Certain current events have the power to affect screening policies too. The present relationship of Singapore with your home country can largely influence the chances of getting your PR approved. This is definitely something that is even harder to control. Instead of dwelling on these matters, it is more advisable for you to concentrate on the one thing that you have absolute control of. And that is the application process.
