Canadian with Chinese girlfriend

Post by Canadian85 » Sun, 26 Apr 2020 3:35 pm

Hi All - have been doing a lot of reading on MoM and other sites and it doesn't seem to have clear guidelines.

I'm a Canadian who has been in Singapore for over a year now on work permit. I have a Chinese girlfriend, who I (prior to vivid) would travel to see once or twice a month. We have been together for close to 2 years (I used to work in HK which is where we met).

She has a business in China that she can manage from Singapore, and I want her to come live with me here in Singapore. Based on MoM, she would not qualify for dependent pass, but may qualify for LTVP (however as I mentioned above, the qualification criteria from MoM is a mystery). I make over 20K SGD a month and can support us both, but because we are not common law or married, it seems like it will be rejected.

Other than going to China/Canada and getting married, are there any other options?

Sadly, you are correct in your assumptions.

You can get married now on Zoom.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Bet you ICA would look at it as a marriage of convenience though.
