i hope this helps some of the forum readers... especially singaporeans with foreign partners.

couples can now figure out their chances of getting an LTVP before marriage - by applying for a Letter of LTVP Eligibility (LLE).

successful applicants will have a shorter LTVP processing times after marriage.

if i'm not wrong, the marriage prep course is refundable (i think 6 months later through some sort of mail-in rebate-type process).

SINGAPORE — New measures to help prospective transnational couples better plan for their future were announced today (Oct 24) by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) and Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF)

In a joint statement, ICA said it will provide “greater clarity, prior to marriage, on whether the foreign spouse can qualify for long term stay in Singapore, based in the circumstances of the couple at the time of application.”

Oh good, we have a couple of new TLAs to add to the hundreds already in place: PTC (prospective transnational couple) and Marriage Preparation Programme (MPP). Plus a nested FLA (i.e. a NF) - Pre-marriage LTVP Assessment (PMLA).

You couldn't make this up. :roll:

You'd sweat the civil service is in the job of creating more jobs for the civil service some days.

It will offer conversational language skills to the foreign spouse, and point out avenues to seek job opportunities to help with family finances. Buddies, who are volunteers trained to assist cross-cultural couples, will be present at these programmes to befriend them. All Singaporean-foreigner couples are encouraged to attend these programmes.
Yah I needs language skilled so can tok jus like heartlander ah! :-D

Cross-cultural 'Buddies' to guide me.... at this point the sick is welling up.

This is such prescriptive, one-dimensional thinking; they don't get it do they.
