I am an SC planning to marry a foreigner overseas.

As far as I know, as long as you can provide a marriage cert and your spouse is not a former or current WP holder, you are good to go to apply for LTVP for your spouse.

Did you apply for PMLA? If you did, the LTVP process is shortened to 6 weeks. If you didn’t, you might be waiting for 6 months for the LTVP to be approved. So I highly suggest that you apply for PMLA before you get married.

Does the overseas marriage cert have a certificate number? You need to input the marriage cert number during the LTVP application which is why most people recommend doing the ROM in SG since the SG marriage cert will definitely have a number.

If your overseas marriage cert is in another language, you might need to provide a translation for it.
