Hey Dodrio, you've been given comprehensive information, why don't you just go back and re-read it. Nothing has changed in the intervening two weeks.

Ok, let's repeat what you've already been told.

a) Earn more than $2800/mo, or preferably more than $3k
b) Don't look like a marriage of convenience.

Any other questions?

Okay I know all this already, i was merely just asking if there is any ways to increase chances than just this if no just tell me there isn't, that's the answer i am seeking for only.

And 1 question, if we were to marry overseas (China) from what i have read it is also being regonised in singapore but will I be eligible to apply a long term pass for her?

Not to sure what the criteria is but in my nephew's case, his wife was originally given a one year LTVP to that allowed the baby to be born in Singapore. As the father is Singaporean, the baby has Singapore Citizenship. Unfortunately, the baby doesn't have Philippines citizenship so when the mother was deported, she took the baby to the 'peens and the baby was allowed to stay one year then my nephew had to go to the 'peens and retrieve the baby when the baby was a little over 1 year old. The baby has been with me ever since.

That's what happens when you don't follow protocols. Additionally, as my Nephew doesn't make the required salary they won't let her come back even on an LTVP. So keep looking for shortcuts, eventually you will hear from somebody what you want to hear and then you will get yourself and your possibly wife into a world of crap. Instead of trying to figure out how to screw around with the system, try working within the system. It's a lot easier. And safer too.

ICA/MOM do not have a heart. They cannot afford to have one because if they did there would be abusers like yourself lined up at the door a km long. It's for that reason that they are adamant on the procedures and protocols.

This is the link
http://www.ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid=237&secid=171

You child will be a Sger if born here and will get SGPP but that does not mean the mother will get one. No way hombre !!

There is no short cut.

In short, even if you run around ICA Building NAKED 100 TIMES , you will not get for your gf that LTSVP pass
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.Yahoo !!!

So having said that, does it mean that after your nephew can bring her after he met the required salary bar next time?

We don't know. They got married without getting MOM's approval because her contract had already been finished for a year or more. MOM has a long memory. It say "if they have EVER worked in Singapore on a Work Permit".

Yep, you are right. That's the whole problem. That's why we keep harping on being sure you get permission from MOM FIRST. Before doing anything else, make sure you have the letter granting permission. It's critical.
