Dependent's pass - single parent

Postby tangotango » Mon, 06 Apr 2015 3:19 pm

Hi all, I've a bit of an oddball question and would like to get some advice.

I'm in my early 30s and as the biological clock is ticking, would like to get pregnant and have a child as a single parent. I've been in Singapore for 2 years, currently on an S-Pass, but hope to get that upgraded to an EP at the next round.

So given how conservative some quarters can be, does anyone have experience applying for a dependent's pass for a newborn as a single mother? I tick all the boxes on eligibility, but I know its still up to approval by an officer.

Or should I wait a bit longer and apply for PR. I haven't tried yet but plan to this year. I'm from Hong Kong and have a masters degree from a decent local university. Salary is approximately low $4000s.

Grateful for any advice anyone can give.

The lower the salary, the lesser the chances of getting a Dependent pass, regardless you are on S Pass or EP!

that's what I know from seeing things around ..

With a PR, you can atleast fight for the DP, i.e. appeal/seek help of MP etc, etc, with an SP/EP, you can't even fight for it !
