Navigating quaruntine & LTVP

Post by ashtag06 » Mon, 19 Jul 2021 7:14 pm

Hi Everyone

Firstly, thanks to the incredible advice provided by members in this forum, I have taken the right steps to coordinate getting a transfer from my UK based job to the Singapore office.

However, due to the pandemic, they have suggested the LTVP + LOC route is the easiest.

The plan is for me to fly to Singapore in late October 2021, where I'll need to undertake the 14 day quarantine (presuming this doesn't change for fully vaccinated people). However, I have some questions over the LTVP which the ICA website, and other forum posts don't seem to answer. I'm aware that my spouse can't apply for the LTVP for me until I receive a visit pass, so I presume I can do this once I've landed and am in quarantine.

Whilst the ICA website says it can take up to 6 months for the LTVP to process, my company are expecting me to start my contract on 1st November. I'm slightly concerned about it all fitting together and actually playing out that smoothly.

Does anyone have any experience with how the process is working during the pandemic and whether there are steps I can take to try and make the process as quick and simple as possible?

FYI - my wife is a SC citizen. We currently both work in the UK, but will be moving to Singapore in late October.

This post from 3 years ago suggested posting a blank D/E card to the recipient overseas and use that number to start the LTVP application.

However, ICA no longer issues a physical D/E card since Mar 2020, and it is replaced with this instead which is available on an app. If you click on the image in the example, you’ll see the D/E number which can be used for your LTVP application.

So I’m not sure if you can start the LTVP application with the D/E number from the app but you can certainly try and let us know.
