Visa for spouse of Student

Postby deepak2307 » Wed, 12 Aug 2015 6:36 pm

Hi,

I am a postgraduate student of NTU on a Student's pass. The University has said they will help me to extend the Social visit pass for my spouse. I would like to know the procedure for applying a long term visa for my spouse if the University extends it. What will be the duration of LTVP for my spouse?

Thanks,
DPK

I'm not sure if a student can apply for an LTVP for a spouse. Have a look at the permitted categories here:- http://www.ica.gov.sg/

[It won't direct link the page, so go to sub-heading 'Apply for Long-Term Visit Pass']

Really!? Ok, apologies, I stand corrected, never heard of that before.

... I'm curious why it's not indicated as an option on the ICA/LTVP page... any ideas? Worst case the Faculty must be able to provide a cue/link?
