Can a PR sponsor his parents or in-laws for an LTVP?

Postby PNGMK » Fri, 21 Mar 2014 12:02 pm

I was reading the rules about the new work passes.

Can I sponsor my mother or mother-father-in-law for a LTVP?

My wife is on a work pass but doesn't earn enough to sponsor her parents for an LTVP.

Based on your PR status,
your mother: yes.
in-laws: no.

These are the categories for LTVP: http://www.ica.gov.sg/services_centre_o ... pageid=376 , apart from those covered by MoM.

Parent: definitely yes
Parent-in-law: I'm not completely sure, but don't think so.

Have you two been married long enough for her to apply for PR? Otherwise, I don't see anything that alludes to that possibility. PR for her would take the guesswork out of it.

If you could wind the clock back would you want PR? I honestly have almost never used it as a benefit and it's now a millstone around my neck.

I could almost agree, but there is a big difference between us. It's a millstone, but I'd never been able to stay here in the long term as I don't have the qualifications. I've had two EPs but that was long before they started tightening up on the criteria (not experience but papers) It was easier to get EPs back in the 80's & early 90's. Today, I wouldn't stand a snowball's chance in hell. But there have been lot's of time when I wish I didn't have it and could use that as the imputes to leave Singapore and the extended family. However, while I didn't originally buy my flat (15 years ago) to make a profit, but only to be able to quit paying rent, it has become an investment of sorts as I've saved 15 years rentals here in Singapore and not actually blown the savings as it is in the equity of the flat which I paid off last August. That is the only thing that has been good about the PR. I don't get sick so have never used my medisave at all. :wink:
