Marriage to a foreigner with an EP

Postby JeromeJ » Thu, 06 Apr 2017 7:02 pm

Hello,

I'm looking for your help because i can't find the informations needed about my question.

I'd like to know if it's possible to go and work in singapore as a single (so having an EP and no DP for anyone of course) and then get married in SG with a foreigner (tourist) then ask for a DP for her.
Should i need to earn at least 5000 ?
Should i need to ask for a new EP for me (with this DP attached to it) to my company ? Can they refuse ?
What would be the process to do it properly (and legally) ?

Any informations is welcome

Many thanks

yes, you can marry a foreigner.

Yes. You need more than 5k to be eligible for DP, but no guarantee that it's a given. ICA may still reject it.

And, your employer will apply for DP, they should agree to it first.

So you still wanna get married ? ;)

PS. Are you planning to get a job here ? Or you are here already ?
