LTVP for parents with income less than 8k

Postby abhi9999 » Tue, 03 Jun 2014 12:55 am

Dear Members,


We are Indian couple and got a baby girl who is 6 months old now. To take her proper for initial period of 1 more year before she can go to play school, we want to get my wife's mother to Singapore on LTVP. My wife's salary is 7.3k which is less than 8k. But my salary is 10k+. We are both on EP and our PR application has been rejected twice. My mother is with God and hence cannot come here to help me. We already have FDW but feel reluctant to leave the baby with FDW alone even though we have the cameras in place. Recently, she made some mistakes.

1. Will MoM consider the joint income of 18k+ and individual income of 7.3+ for LTVP on case by case basis?

2. If my MIL comes on Visitor pass for 1 month and then goes back. Then when can she come again for another 1 month? Is there any mandatory gap period in between.

3. Will the gap period be affected if we get 1 month extension? Please suggest what will be a safe gap period and is it mandatory to go back to home country?

4. In future, will it affect our PR application?


Thanks for your guidance.

1. No.
2. No. But visa/entry is granted by ICA, and they give it out according to their internal rules, which are not known to anyone but them.
3. No. There is no "safe" gap period (though recommendation is to be out of the country for at least a few days), but since she is Indian, I believe she needs to apply for visa just to come here anyway?
4. I think only if your mother runs afoul of immigration laws here.

Note that doing "visa runs" is not recommended on a longer-term basis. You may be able to do this once or twice, you may even be able to do it for (much) longer; mileage varies wildly. But, if ICA refuses your mother entry, it will be on their record for a long time, afaik, and she won't be able to come back for a while after that.

Thanks AngMoG for your response. It really helped me plan my next steps.

Thanks all for your interest. So far, to my belief, my mom is with God. If I find out otherwise someday, I will let you all know.

How will you let us know? Presumably you will also be with God

That's not nice. In fact you are both kind of mean.

It's just the traditional way of speaking respectfully of those who have passed away. OP, I hope you find a solution.

Good luck.

Frankly you should have planned for this before having babies... the only solution is for your wife to switch jobs and get one which pays more than 8k$ and the employer agrees to sponsor LTVP for her parents.

Alternatively, you both will be forced to live apart because of your decision to have babies when you could not provide support to the baby.

Else bite the bullet and get a housemaid from India.

Just apply already! :roll:

One of two things will happen. It will get approved, or it wont. Decision solved. If it's not approved, get an Indian mail as was already mentioned. If it is, no problem. If it's not and you refuse to use a maid, Indian or otherwise, go home. Simple. One cannot be beggers when one doesn't plan ahead. :-|

Funny, as it was a misspelled maid, but one of my wife's rellies here used to have a male Indian nanny. But how, I don't have a clue.
