LTVP Renewal

Post by ckimy85 » Wed, 20 Mar 2019 5:24 pm

Hi guys....

Thanks for reading my post, much appreciated...

I'm a PR (both me & my wife are M'sian), currently renewing my wife's LTVP, submitted on 15 Feb 2019, till today is about 5 weeks already, understand that processing time up to 6 weeks... But the waiting time kills me...

I'm quite curious that when I first apply LTVP for her on last year March 2018, it just took 2-3 days then got approved. Some more that time she still working in Johor Bahru. After got her LTVP, she got an employer to get LOC for her to work in SG.

But now wait about 5 weeks, and still waiting.... Suffer leh....

There is a reason why MOM requires all renewals for LOC, since 2018, to be applied for a minum of 3 months before expiry. Apparently some people cannot follow directions. As her previous LOC was granted in March of 2018 the application should have been applied for around the end of December 2018 or at the very latest the beginning of January 2019

When to renew
For Dependant’s Pass (DP) holders
, you can apply to renew the LOC when the Dependant’s Pass is renewed. You can apply to renew up to 6 months before the LOC expires.

For LTVP or LTVP+ holders, you can apply to renew up to 6 months before the LOC expires. Before applying, check that the LTVP or LTVP+ is valid for at least 3 months. If it is not, the pass holder needs to go to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) to renew the LTVP or LTVP+.

I saw 6 months before LOC expires, so submit renewal on the 2 months before...

I already sent an email and also went down to ICA with my spouse. They say just wait until the result coming out. I really have no idea to get approval before my pass is expired. And also really worried about losing my job.

We are pleased to inform that the application has been given the In-Principle Approval (IPA) today. It will be viewable in due course by tomorrow.
