Visa for Dependents

Post by keisuke » Tue, 13 Jul 2021 10:12 am

Hi,

I've been in Singapore for 3 years and had some savings, I think it's enough for me to pursue a Master degree here and support my family.
Right now i'm holding EP, my wife and child are DPs.
Is there any way for my wife and child to stay with me in SG when I'm studying the Master degree? I heard that you cannot sponsor DPs while holding a Student Pass.

Thank you for your advices.

It depends on which university you plan to enrol in, but at least for NTU and NUS, family members of full-time graduate students can apply for social visit pass (LTVP). NUS seems to specify graduate research students. Best to check with the institute you plan to enrol with.

Hi,

I am currently holding S Pass. My salary has been recently hiked to 6k. Even though I meet the eligibility criteria to apply for DP, my HR stated that I need to wait until 3months to apply
for DP, as payslips for 3months need to be submitted. DP is for my child.

My question is
1. Does the 3months payslip have to be with revised salary? Can I apply with salary revision letter and payslips before salary revision?
2. Has anyone applied before (without revised payslips and just salary revision letter) and have succeeded in obtaining DP?

Thanks in advance!

The salary revision letter is only if your three months pay vouchers are not available which means the letter has to be written after the time period has elapsed. A letter of a revision that hasn't happened, hasn't happened, therefore not acceptable.
