from what I know, if there is a printed form for DP, fill it and post it, with all required documents an Pray MOM reviews itvenre wrote:Hi,
I applied DP for my wife as an individual and it got rejected.
We submitted all the necessary documents but we don understand why it got rejected.We tried calling MOM for reason but no response.
Please help on how to find the reason and appeal for the same.
err..... unlike in olden days when DP/LOC to work while on DP etc were mere formalities, satisfying the pay alone doesn't now guarantee approval.AngMoG wrote:You need to earn min $4k per month in salary (not including bonus or commission!) to get a DP for your husband/wife/child.

Yup. But earning below gives certain rejection, which was my point.ecureilx wrote:err..... unlike in olden days when DP/LOC to work while on DP etc were mere formalities, satisfying the pay alone doesn't now guarantee approval.AngMoG wrote:You need to earn min $4k per month in salary (not including bonus or commission!) to get a DP for your husband/wife/child.

Obtaining Employment Passes and Dependents Passes has never been a 'formality'. In the past it may have been more of a 'given' that a DP would be forthcoming in the appropriate circumstances, but it has always been at the discretion of the folks at MOM. Nowadays they appear to be exercising this discretion in a more nuanced way.AuntieMabel wrote:I thought DP approval was more or less a formality.
I know what you mean, but the process has always been opaque; it's just that it's even less predictable now. The authorities will always want to keep their flexibility, in order to tweak the numbers of people (including dependents) in various categories coming into the country. Even more so now, given the rabid baying of the anti-foreigner contingent among the citizenry. I'm also glad that I no longer have to deal with that stuff.AngMoG wrote:AuntieMabel, I am not sure anybody can answer your question satisfactorily at this point. As with other visa issues in SG nowadays, the process and the criteria are very opaque, and depend on a number of factors. Without knowing more about you and your husband other than the fact that you are earning more than $4K, it is rather difficult for anyone to give an answer.
This kind of crap is one of the reasons I left Singapore...

Been working on the assumption that, now I have my EP, getting my husband's is going to be fine (I earn rather more than $4k, though).
Another thing to take into consideration is how long you have been married. and where he is from. No, I don't have a clue as to which countries are on the undesirable list but we do know of some, including some around the middle east.Dependant's Pass - Before you apply

It's more accurate to say "Processing of the application is pretty fast." One should never assume that an approval will definitely be forthcoming. Probably a good chance in this case (IMHO), but in the current climate it's not advisable to behave as if it's a 100% certainty.ecureilx wrote:approval is pretty fast.
