Applying PR for my Husband

Post by khyla.raman » Mon, 22 Jun 2020 8:49 pm

My husband currently holds a LTVP and runs a company in Australia. He spends half his time here n half his time in Darwin. But he is able to work anywhere as he owns the company. So after he gets his Singaporean PR he will still be running his company in Australia in Singapore and getting well paid for it.

He is the breadwinner of the family and I only work freelance as we have a 2 yr old. I tried to apply online but I have to act as a sponsor but my income won’t be able to support us. And there is no place in the application to say that he will still be earning a decent income when he comes here and still be able to contribute to spending in the economy.

I tried to email immigration but they asked me to apply online. Can anyone advise how I can get around this pls?

He will still be earning from his job in Auz as he can work from anywhere only when projects arise he has to travel. But there is no place I can input his information and that he is the one supporting us. As his job is in Auz he had to pay tax to the Auz Govt.

I’m afraid there’s no other way to get around this other than you finding an employment that pays you around the qualifying threshold of a Dependent Pass (DP), which is $6,000.

Your husband’s income has no part to play, and he living and working in Australia ain’t gonna help with the application, if and when you’re able to sponsor him.

As much as the gahmen has been saying multiple times a day we will help Singaporeans with this and that recently, Singapore is not a welfare state. So, the gahmen will not want to bring someone who is not able and/or whose sponsor is not able to support him financially in to burden the system.

but that's the thing he will still be supporting us. He is able to work anywhere. Actually it is his own business and it's doing very well. So even if he comes here he will be able to support us well and contribute to the spending in the economy. Only thing is tax is payable in Aus not Singapore. How do I explain this?

He should register a company in Singapore and contract his services from Singapore to his Australia company. Doing so will allow him to generate an income in Singapore (to use for PR application) and possibly reduce his tax burden in Australia.

There are only 2 routes
1. If you are the sponsor, you need to show enough income to prove that you can support him financially. ICA will not accept saying he is making enough money to support all of you. It works like this for sponsorship cases
2. Apply on his own under PTS Scheme. He has to make enough and be working in SG for atleast 3-4 years for having a chance via this route.
