Handicaped Dependent Sibling

Postby handicapped_sibling » Sun, 23 Oct 2016 1:04 pm

I am moving to Singapore on EP, I have got LTVP for my mother however MOM is not considering exception for my handicapped and physically challenged sister. Please advise how I can get a pass or visa for handicapped and physically challenged sister. I have all the certificates and affidavits but MOM is not considering any exception. This is a genuine case. Please advise how to proceed and who to approach. What other ways can be looked at to get a visa.

I judge that you will never get an exception ruling. The Singapore gahmen are a bunch of cold-hearted bastards when it comes to things like this.

Here is why it is not going to happen.

  1. You are on an EP... thereby, by definition, you are temporary. You have no roots, you have no loyalty, you are here for the money.
  2. Were you to leave Singapore, and leave your sister behind, she would become a ward of the state, and that is the last thing that Singapore wants... to have anyone in the country that can't make their own way.
  3. You are Indian, and there have been enough tricks over the years by your countrymen, such that no matter how altruistic your own motives are, you're automatically considered as someone who is going to try to take advantage of the situation.

So... maybe you can post a million dollar bond... something to convince the authorities that your sister would never become a burden... otherwise, it's not going to happen.
