LTVP: Better to have a job in my home country?

Post by Remrt » Wed, 28 Oct 2020 6:06 pm

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

Work remotely in SG first. FYI,SHN has internet access

You should be patient for receiving physical copy via post that too in COVID Times. Worst case if you don't receive it in the next 2-3 weeks, your sponsor can contact ICA and see what can be done. They will be happy to assist.
