Hi everybody,
I hope this is the right place to post...

My (M, British Citizen) PMLA has been approved and we have the LLE - hooray! My fiancee is a Singapore Citizen.

Could anybody advise whether it's advisable for me to get married and apply for the LTVP while I still have my job in the UK and associated income? I can then later resign to look for work in SG. Or is it possible (or even better?!) to leave my current UK job and get married in Singapore, applying for the LTVP as somebody who is recently unemployed due to the relocation.

Either is possible as I can take annual leave and work remotely in SG while sorting out everything; I just need to work out the logistics especially as there is the SHN on arrival currently.

Also if I might ask two more questions:

1) How long should I plan for the whole marriage and LTVP process (assuming a need to temporarily return to the UK to tie up some lose ends before moving permanently)?
2) I was approved for the LLE 20 days ago but yet to receive the physical copy in the UK. My fiancee has her copy with reference number, but is there a way to contact the ICA if my copy doesn't arrive? Or should I just be patient!

Thanks a lot for your help

And may I know are all spouses of Singaporean’s will need to renew their ltvp+ every 3 years is it? Or every year. Sorry to ask you such a noob question. ^^
LTVP+ is only granted to foreigner spouses that have been married to their SC spouse for at least 3 years. Based on my initial application and renewal, I did not see any option to choose it in the application form and it could automatically granted by ICA once they see the marriage has lasted for at least 3 years. That is speculation on my part, I’ve only been married for a year and my husband got 1 year LTVP each for his first application and the renewal. I renewed my husband’s LTVP about 3 months before expiry.

Hey Miss mochs just wondering when you apply for your ltvp, the ica website stated that the sponsor have to submit 12 months cpf and 3 years income tax. But when I applied today there isn’t a section for those two. Is it the same for everyone?

That would be in the list of documents that you need to bring for the appointment after you get the in-principle approval. You’ll just have to wait.

Hi guys,

I’m a Malaysian Chinese (F) on EP currently. Married to native Singaporean for 3 months.

Would like to apply for PR directly under spouse scheme but was told that should wait for 3 years of marriage before applying, or have a child.

Hence we would like to try the LTVP route. Let’s say LTVP is approved, does that mean my EP will automatically be canceled?

As I understand, LTVP holders can work with LOC in Singapore. But I already have EP, do I need to apply for the LoC? Or I can continue to work and it’s an automatic transfer?

Thanks.

Apply for LTVP when Employment(EP) comes in trouble else just continue on EP (Save LTVP cost). When you hit baby or 3y, which ever comes first you could try with PR application

Thanks for your response. Actually I intend to quit my current job once my 2 years bond is due this coming June. But am afraid that I couldn’t find a job in time and will have to go back to KL once the given social pass is up.

Anyway, sidetrack abit. If I’m on EP married to SC, do we get government grants when we buy resale?

When you quit Employment, at last day of work HR will issue SVP with 30 days validation, at that time apply for LTVP. Don’t worry, you can get SVP extended by hubbie at almost in a day or two. You don’t have to go back....Enjoy your life...

Difficult? Definitely no.

Through agency? I won't encourage.

Hello there,

Not sure if I’m able to open a new thread hence tapping on this topic.

I’m Malaysian on EP expiring (June 2021), recently married to SC (Nov 2020).

We applied for LTVP in March 2021 and recently got the IPA for the application. However, final outcome will be subject to clean medical report.

Is it necessary for me to inform my employer NOW that I’ve received an IPA for LTVP or only after I have obtain an official approval?

P/S: My HR told me she will renew my EP as it is going to expire soon. My concern is that if my LTVP is approved, HR does not need to apply for EP renewal but apply for Ltr of Consent instead. But the question is, we don’t know how long does ICA take to process and come out with final outcome. And if it’s rejected, I would need the EP to continue staying in SG.

Or can my employer submit renewal of EP while my LTVP application has IPA and awaiting final outcome?

Why did you want to exchange your EP for an LoC? Doesn't make any sense unless you are planning on quitting your job or your job was in jeopardy.

Why don't you inform your employer and they decide if they want to renew the EP or wait for the LTVP to be approved and apply for LOC? Better to be open and honest.

I'm planning to quit my job once my 2 year contract is up and take a break before getting another job.

Anyway, does anybody know how much time does ICA take to approve LTVP from submission of medical exam on IPA.

"If you submitted a Pre-Marriage Long-Term Visit Pass Application (PMLA) before applying for your LTVP, it may take up to six weeks to process your LTVP application. If you did not submit a PMLA, the LTVP processing time may take up to six month"

Saw the above statement in ICA website, quite concerned if the official approval could take another 6 months upon receipt of IPA. 8-[

Have you completed the medical exam and received the results? Have you uploaded the results onto the ICA website? If so, when did you upload it?

Recently the LTVP application has a lot of IPA steps like “approved in principle (pending documents)” before progressing to “approved in principle (documents received)” and then progress to “approved in principle (pending payment)” and finally “approved in principle”.

As long as you’ve submitted the necessary documents and everything in order, it’ll take a few working days.
