So, to net it out, if your employer is uncooperative then check to see whether you can jump up to a PEP. You'll need to be an EP holder with a fixed monthly salary of at least $12,000 (or outside Singapore with a fixed monthly salary of at least S$18,000) to qualify for a PEP. Ask the Ministry of Manpower if you anticipate your parent living in Singapore longer than three years (the lifetime of a PEP) and if you're concerned about what happens at the end of that period. Also please note that, whether in collaboration with an employer (EP holder) or not (PEP, PR, citizen), there is no guarantee that a LTVP will be issued to a parent. Or a STVP, for that matter.

FYI, Multiple visit STVP via SAVE for aged parents are pretty much a given, never heard of it being refused, especially for Indian passport holders.

Since the company didn't want to sponsor, then your best bet is go for PEP. Your basic salary is the one that seen by MOM for their base of approval and your specific skill that can benefit the country.

They introduced the regulation to reducing the number of people bring to the country with only 1 person working but carrying extra baggages ( 6 person but only 1 person working).

Sorry to say that term is common for indian nationality, 1 person working and they will bring their spouse, both parent and both their inlaw. This cause overpopulated to singapore and those extra baggage not contributing to the country tax income.

That would still be ok if spendings increase accordingly but I guess this is never the case for Indian families?

Cannot thank you enough for making the time and effort in providing me with the answers. I have spent the last few days trying to persuade HR to sponsor her application. That has failed. STVP remains my only option. I have no complaints against the rationale behind the mitigating steps around immigration. I remain grateful to everyone who provided their insights. Thank you so much!

I would be curious to see if this is common among large employers in SG. I work for a MNC and LTVP for parents is not allowed, only immediate family (which is me, myself and I).

I am an EP holder, i am looking to apply for LTVP for my parents...The documents required for the application mentions - "A copy of the work pass holder's birth certificate that states the names of the parents."
Now i do not have my birth certificate...are there any other documents which are acceptable to MOM (like i have my parents name on my passport)?

I'm quite lost regarding you said the parent name was on your passport? How old are you till the parent name was still on the passport? I remember only kid that have the parent name in the passport.

Besides birth certificate, you can submit adoption letter if you are adopted and they are not your real parent, but you not indicated that, then only copy of birth certificate is the only document that will be accepted by MOM.

I don't know if family registration documents will be accepted or not by MOM, to be sure try to call MOM for more detail, since this is required black and white confirmation then better you email them so got official acknowledgement of the requirements document. In family registration (if there is such thing from your country), it will describe all your intermediate family member that still stay in the same address.
