LTVP

Postby imbaxx » Fri, 12 Jun 2015 10:30 am

Hi all,

I'm enquiring on for my mum LTVP. She was a LTVP holder until april2015 it got expired. I am a PR holder in singapore, currently studying (turning 21 in few months time) and planning to get citizenship. I have been studying here for almost 10 years, so are my mum living here. We had been staying at a house bought under my father name which is also a foreigner.

When she went to extend her LTVP, she got rejected and we had to appeal. Any suggestions to be included in the appeal to increase the chances ?

Thanks alot

Some questions first
Who is sponsoring her? You father? What is his status now?
How did you get your PR? Are you a dependent PR?

For LTVP, they are looking at means of support. The sponsor must be able to support the LTVP holder
or the LTVP holder has the means to support herself. As a PR who is still a student, you are not able to support your mom so she needs to prove that she has support from someone or she can support herself financially. I believe ICA has also tightened parents LTVP approval (sponsored by PR children) so it may be that your mom has been affected by this notwithstanding having any means of financial support.

Yes previously. They ask for my mum for her finance status, but my mum is not working and only getting monthly allowance up . Therefore there is no proof. However from her bank, i believe 6 digits and more should be enough to support her financially but somehow my mother is reluctant to show them. Yes i'm aware of that, i planning to be the sponsor after i finish my study.

Her bank statements would surely be adequate proof; maybe you have answered your own question, why is she unwilling to prove her income? In the absence of such evidence the authorities have to assume she has nil income.

Yes, that time she went down, she didnt brought along her bank statements and got rejected. Now we are going to add in the bank statement together with the appeal letter. Thanks

Surely when you visited ICA they asked her what her income was. And/or, didn't she have to write this on the forms? Did they ask her for proof? I mean, was there a discussion about her income, and how/why she presented no evidence for it?

To JR8:i didn't went with her. She went with my sister, at the time she has not prepare/bring along the statements cause my father give her monthly allowance in cash. So it is really hard to prove that .

Also, please look through the below appeal letter and suggest any room of improvement?
RE: Appeal Letter For Long Term Pass(

Dear Sirs,
As mentioned above, I am appealing for long term pass. I am an existing long term pass holder from , by the time I realised that my existing long term pass was expiring, it was too late to renew as it 1 week before expiring. I have two daughters aged 21 and 18, in possession of the Permanent Resident Citizenship.I have been staying in Singapore and had a house under my husband name.
In additional, they are still studying and unable to become my sponsor yet. Till then, I am receiving monthly allowance from my husband from overseas and my bank statement can verify that.

Please look through all the information provided and sorry for any inconvenience caused.Thanks




PS: See attached file for bank statements

THANKS ALOT

The wording is fine, it's clear what you're trying to say.

But I cannot understand one thing: You say -

- 'she has not prepare/bring along the statements cause my father give her monthly allowance in cash. So it is really hard to prove that.'
- 'Till then, I am receiving monthly allowance from my husband from overseas and my bank statement can verify that. ... PS: See attached file for bank statements'

Cash, in the terms you use it, means a bundle of currency banknotes put in her hand.
But, if it's on her bank statements... is your father wiring it to her, or paying her cash 'in the hand' and she is depositing it locally? If cash-in-hand/banked locally, then how can she prove the source of the funds? :-k

Sorry on that part, was trying to add in whatever i had in mind. Haven't finalise yet. Regarding that, i meant to say that she did not know how to prove to them that she had been receiving monthly allowance from her husband as it was Cash(bundle of currency banknotes) put in her hand. Also, she doesn't bank in monthly basic. That is the question i been trying to ask, she cannot prove the source of the funds .Any suggestion?

This is getting a little complicated and beyond my knowledge, it is best you wait until one of the visa [etc] subject-matter-experts comes by and gives their opinion.

Unless you have some kind of audit trail to prove she has received the money, then you are up shit creek because you cannot prove anything. If it was cash payments, then you need to show receipts that she has signed off when receiving the money. Maybe, of there is evidence of regular withdrawals from a back, you might make that work, but I doubt it.

Think about it... every scammer in the world would be telling ICA that they give cash every month with no records if they could get away with it. Either find a way to document or forget your appeal.
