2 years multiple social visit visa

Postby pk4187 » Tue, 03 Jan 2017 4:57 pm

Dear All,

My wife (Indian) got a multiple visit visa (for 2 years), she came year last year (Oct and nov) and stood for 2 months.
Now I am planning to bring her again.
1. Do I need to apply visit visa again or with the same visa she can enter Singapore ?
2. How often she can take gap between each entry ?

Awaiting for your valid inputs.

Thanks

There is no black and white as far as I know. However, if she stays more than 183 days a year, then she would be tax resident in SG, so it is unlikely that they would allow her to stay that long within a tax year. Basically, if immigration think you are using the visa to circumvent applying for a DP for her, they may refuse entry.

The multiple entry visa would normally state the period per stay.

I recall it is 30 days.

Back to how soon is too soon, there is no answer but a gap of 3 months is safe.

If the visa says multiple entry valid for 2 years, she don't need another entry visa for visits within the two years.
