Either they misunderstood or misinterpreted what you were asking. The only way she will get an LTVP is if you get married.
So it makes a difference? Poke->BBCWatcher wrote:Adrian is an EP holder, so it'd be a DP (not LTVP) for his wife. Yes, agreed, marriage works.
Well, no offense but I guess SG inc, as usual, does a lot of profiling, and a westerner falling in love with an Asian, especially when that happened in Singapore - that raises some eyebrows- at times (no offense again .. ) And a few marriages of convenience cases have made the authorities to clamp down on anybody who even shows a hint of something like that ..Union Jack wrote:This is a bit of a frustrating situation as - in many cases the world over, even here in Singapore - one person meets another person in their new country of residence.
Correct, because, Singapore is in Asia, and "ASIAN" values are expected from Asian men and women. I hope, for example, you have heard of Section 377A, for a start.Union Jack wrote:Company agrees to process on behalf of me via their agency as long as all paperwork can be provided and then here we are - seemingly trumped - on a technicality whereby it's ok to have a GF in principal on a LTVP as long as the relationship started in 99.99999% of the countries in the world.
Just not here????
Sort of, YES, but, like winning the lottery, you may still get lucky. Though you gotta understand the odds are not in your favour, as of now.I'm not looking to get married, nor am I looking to convert to Islam, (not that shes an Indonesian Muslim in any case).
So are we saying that simply because we MET in Singapore then all bets are off????
