Husband wants to move to Singapore with MIL

Postby duncoje » Fri, 16 Nov 2018 9:09 am

Hi,
We are a family of 3 (2 adults, 1x2yo) currently living in SE Asia. My husband has decided that instead of moving home (Australia) he wants to bring his mother to come and live with us. :roll:
There are no options to do this in the country we currently live in, as we are not PR and it would require her doing a visa run every 3 months (which they will not allow after the 3rd consecutive trip).
Note: I am currently not working as I am a stay at home parent, I would ideally like to continue this until toddler starts school but have a professional qualification if I do need to work.

My understanding is if he was earning over $12,000 a month and had a P1 visa then it could be possible in Singapore. It would be possible for her to apply for a LTV pass/dependent visa? Please let me know if I am incorrect.
If we decided to take this route I am also curious to know about health care. MIL has pre-existing medical conditions, would we be required to take out specialised insurance? Would she have any sort of local coverage? I just want to make sure that if we move forward with this and she gets sick and needs to be hospitalised that it's not going to cost $x000's a day out of pocket and she would be cared for.

I apologise if this is not very clear - happy to provide further information if necessary.

You can get a pass for the following family members:

Parents - only for those earning a fixed monthly salary of at least $12,000.

You can take hospitalization insurance in SG. But once she has pre-existing conditions, they will be excluded in most of the cases.
