Please help. Thanks in advance.

Like everything in Singapore, all is given but contingent on the officer dealing with at the time. A lot of items throw up red flags for closer inspection and it sounds like her passport was flagged on the previous trip. As wives are not allow to be on DP passes for S pass holders, it was pretty obvious to the Immigration Officer that you and your wife were trying to circumvent the rules governing the issuance of S passes and the restriction of having a spouse residing here without the proper visa.
You did not indicate what your salary was so I am assuming that is was under 4,000/mo as that is the minimum salary on an S pass for a spouse to be allowed to stay here on a Dependent Pass. Just for awareness sake, that minimum will be raised to a minimum salary of 5K/mo with effect from 1 September 2015 (5 weeks from now)).
So, with that in mind, and the fact that an employer would obviously much rather put you on an EP (low level) as then they would save between $315 and $550 dollars that they current have to pay for S pass holders (No levies - YET - for EP holders and no CPF payments either. So this is why my assumption that your salary level is below 4K/mo. I'm pretty sure this is also why ICA has rejected your wife's entrance for a 5th time in a 12 month span.
Go the form 14 way, for nowimsanal wrote: All the previous visits were done during 2014. This is the first time she came to Singapore in 2015 and she was send back. What I'm afraid is will there be any ban imposed on her? If we apply student visa whether this U-turn will be a reason for rejection of student pass?
