Write a letter requesting permission to marry giving name, passport number, FIN number and Local prospective spouse' particulars as well. Take to to MOM and ask the reception who you should give it to. Be sure to include your address, email address, phone numbers, etc.

There is no set form or protocol.

Hi, I have received the approval letter which sent by the MOM. How many days must I have to get the ROM dates from the MOM.

and in the letter, it stated that "in addition, we have no objection to you/your spouse becoming pregnant or delivering your child in Singapore".. what does it mean? does it means if I'm pregnant now and i can't deliver the child now due to the word of "becoming pregnant"? or mus I have to get the legally cert from the ROM there, and there's no prob for me to deliver the child in Singapore?

If you have this letter, get ROM . The letter is usually valid for a year. From past info. 3 to 6 months to get ROM will be acceptable.
Once you have this letter on hand if you get pregnant and wants to deliver in SG , this is not a problem even if you have not go to ROM
Congratulation on your approval

Well obviously you didn't include that particular detail in your request to ROM, if you had the MOM might have refused permission. As you've already got the permission to ROM I would like to even try to recommend what you should do, get ROM as soon as possible and hope when the MOM find out you are pregnant they don't cancel your WP and send you home?

Chance of getting find out is when you go for yearly medical check up OR go to see the GP for your pregnancy. Like Saint said get the ROM done ASAP or else is one way street to JB

grace fifi wrote:hihi,everyone, and i got one more thing which is not quite understanding is by the time i went to collect my work permit trainee pass, the MOM issued me a computer generated letter which is written that
"Dear sir/madam
waiver of requirement to apply for marriage
pleast note that there is no need for you to obtain the approval of the controller of work passes before you can marry a singapore citizen or PR,the relevant work permit condition will hence not apply to you..
yours faithfully
does anyone understand what is the letter for to issue me or what the perpose of MOM for issuing this ? does it mean i cannot marry here with a local??? thanks a lot for the advise...thanks

grace fifi wrote:hihi, im a foreign students here who was holding work permit trainee pass before, because my course is hotel management, attachment is compulsory for every students, so after we completed our course, our school will apply a work permit trainee pass for every foreigner students so that we can be trained and work as a trainee in a hotel industry or a company, and now my attachment is over already, so does a work permit trainee pass holder or a ex--holder can marry to singaporean here? i have known my boyfriend for 4 years, and we're very happy to be together and enjoy our lives here,and my boyfriend planing to marry me in next year, but after reading all the posts here, im start to worry that my future hubby cannot marry me because i was a work permit trainee pass holder,or im not qualify......can anyone give some suggestions for our future? im really worry we will encourter same case as be banned of entering singapore.. im really so worried,,,, thanks for everyone's help
HI GRACE FIFI, can i ask u if u still have that letter u received from mom when collecting your training pass during your attachment. please help if possible u could email me that letter to my email lizawati_1983@hotmail.com by scanning because i am facing the same situation but i think this a misunderstanding from. My husband has went back to his country because mom said he had contravened the marriage policy because i think mom thought he was a normal work permit holder before. he told me he also once received the same letter like you did from mom but unfortunately he threw it away long time even before i knew back in 2007. if i could get that letter i could prove it to mom at least and have my husband back and that now sad things is i am also 6 months pregnant now. thank you
