getting married to a singaporean guy, But i was refused to enter singapore

Postby otaniriza » Thu, 27 Oct 2016 1:32 am

Hi good day,

I realy need advice on my current situation. I flew singapore last august 1st since my company granted my leave for 2 months. Since recently had my hand surgery so my doctor advice not to use of my hand before its completly healed. So my boyfriend booked a ticket for me for 4 days with hotel reservation. So immigration gave me 30 days of stay but i need to go back with in that week so since i had 2 months approved leave we decided that i just stay in singapore during that month but i dont have any plans of looking for jobs in singapore. I once been granted a TEP pass (Trainee employment pass) for 1 year way back 2011 but after my pass expires i went back to philippines. Yearly visit singapore for short vacation like 1 week or 4 days since my boyfriend is singaporean. So after 1 month before september we went to johor to celebrate my bday and ofcourse to extend my stay. I have a confirmed return ticket to manila, immigration did questioned me and answer all those question plus present them all my documents that iam employed in the philippines for almost 3 years so they let me in and gave another month of stay... so i contacted my supervisor that i will use 1 more month of my leave so he agree's and expect me to return to manila last week of september since i need to go to work 1st week of october but before that me and my friend decided to visit bangkok for shopping and food so before my pass ended we went to bangkok sept 22 and went back to singapore sept 25 since my confirmed ticket is sept 26 just 1 day diff. So immigration ask me to go to the office and check some documents i have. They suspect that im looking for employment, i dod experience the same as many foreign people when they basicaly went for questioned by ica and stuff.. so wat they did they rebooked my ticket and have me stayed at the office so no chance of telling my boyfriend that i need to go back to manila and also told them that i just need to get my stuff to my boyfriends place and tomorow i will return to manila but they didnt let me . So i waited in the room for about 3 or 4 hours with diff people most of them are vietnamese i even helped one of the vietnamese there coz we both inside of the question room and she cant speak english so she show me a photo and ask if ever immigration will let me out help her find this person and tell her that she is still inside. But unfortunately immigration also needs to send me to manila so what i did i contacted my friedn and send her then picture to help the vietnamese. So to cut the story short they gave me a paper that indicates that i was refused to enter singapore. So my question is?

1. How many months or years do i need to wait until i can enter singapore?

2. I know i need to write a letter to ica for appeal of ever i want to enter singapore, Can i tell them that i need to visit my boyfriend since we are planning now to get married?

3. We are planning to get married in Batam indonesia this december and the flight will be troublesome if im going to bali or jakarta because the most convenient way for me is to fly to singapore and from singapore we go to batam indonesia . Can i write a letter that me and my boyfried will be in batam so i just need to be in singapore for just 1 day and also 1 day wen i return back to manila after my marriage since we both agreed that we will be getting married in batam indonesia . Can i use this as my reason for my letter of appeal?

Thank you so much!

Ever since MOM possibly found out the rampant abuse of TEP ... I doubt their heart's gonna melt ...

1. How many months or years do i need to wait until i can enter singapore?


No correct answer but a gap of 6 months or longer will help ...

2. I know i need to write a letter to ica for appeal of ever i want to enter singapore, Can i tell them that i need to visit my boyfriend since we are planning now to get married?

That kind of excuse won't work.


3. We are planning to get married in Batam indonesia this december and the flight will be troublesome if im going to bali or jakarta because the most convenient way for me is to fly to singapore and from singapore we go to batam indonesia . Can i write a letter that me and my boyfried will be in batam so i just need to be in singapore for just 1 day and also 1 day wen i return back to manila after my marriage since we both agreed that we will be getting married in batam indonesia . Can i use this as my reason for my letter of appeal?

Thank you so much!


Pray, since you hold a Philippine passport, he holds a Singapore passport, how does it work getting married in Batam ?

Do you or your bf have any skeletons in your closet that prevents you from marrying in Philippines?

Follow the painful long process including the mind boggling meaningless CFO seminars compulsory for Filipinos marrying Foreigners, do the capacity to marry certificate etc, for best chance of moving Singapore Gov.

Unless ... ahem, you can't complete the Barangay certificate etc.

Quick marriages a-la Las Vegas won't help.

That's all I can say.

Unless you were wrongly kicked out

But when it comes to matters like marriage, it's better to err on the side of caution.

to ICA it certainly looks like you're trying to game the system when you take all the superfluous details out.

1. ask ica

2. since you're doing #1, this is related to #2. ask ica.

3. this sounds really strange. but is related to #1 and #2. ask ica.

good luck!
