I didn't quite say that. I said you can try
, and I don't see anything in the instructions that obviously
precludes their applying. But the ICA officer has the option to re-mark your form at your appointment to exclude your overseas wife and child if the officer doesn't want to accept their applications. Or the ICA officer might ask you to resubmit a corrected form with changes to pages 4, 5, and 7 to exclude your wife and child from the application. If you're concerned about that you can keep "backup" copies of pages 4, 5, and 7 in a different folder, ready for submission and marked "No" to the "applying with you" questions (and not signed by your wife). However, if you do that, I would not attempt to present that second form until after you physically walk away from the counter then, after several minutes, walk back.
You can also ask ICA ahead of your appointment. They have an e-mail address posted on their Web site, and they seem to be pretty good about responding. Try something like this: "I am living and working in Singapore, and I have an upcoming appointment at ICA to apply for PR under the PTS Scheme. My wife and child are currently residents of Malaysia, but my wife would like to apply for PR with me, and we would also like to include our child in the application. Will ICA accept PR applications from my nonresident wife and child as part of my PR application?"
just curious, do you think my wife is allowed to courier (Fedex or DHL) her passport and my child's passport to Singapore? on top of the original documents.
Sure, I don't see why not.
