This forum is really helpful, I am a singaporean chinese girl, and i had gotten my consent letter to register marriage with my Malaysian Chinese bf who is still under Wp,really thankful! I just got an enquiry here, the given consent letter doesn't state the vadility dates, so does it means this letter do not have any expiry dates?


I would call them to confirm that, or just get married ASAP. Most of the letters we see from MOM (IPA letters) have 6 month validity dates.

Hi all, I will need another piece of advice, my bf had previously applied for spass but it had been rejected. He had been working in sg for the past 6yrs, 2yrs of income tax, upgraded himself in Singapore polytechnic by going through a part time studies and competency test. Obtained MOH register license to perform his job.

Sep 2010- 1st application, rejected; reason given as information provided is not consistent with that in their record, would review the application after supporting documents is submitted. Did summit the documents, but I think there is still some informations uncorrected, hence appeal rejected
Feb2011- 2nd application through agency, rejected without appealing
Aug2011- 3rd application through agency, rejected with appealing but still unsuccessful
March2012- 4th application through agency, rejected without appealing

My prediction, the rejections may be due to the multiple applications, as well as the informations provided result in some confusion and inconsistency in their system, which is still not yet clarify.

The boss would like to reapply next yr. Hence I would like to get some advices here, whether what his boss can do so that the controller may reconsider his application?

Thanks a lot, for all urs help!

Unless he is earning at least 2K/mo he will not get an S pass. Unless he has at least a Polytechnic Diploma and several years of relevant experience for the position applying for, he will not get an S pass.

He had a poly diploma, but not in the area that he is working now, what he obtained for his current job is just a performance certification for the competency test by singapore polytechinc, which qualify him to obtain register license for his current work, he had work in current trade for 6yrs, salary more than 2k/mth. Is there any further advices for his next application? Shall his boss summit the application by hand and include all the relevant documents to clarify all the inconsistency or just simply apply through online?

Why is he working through an agency? That might be part of the problem.

Try a manual submission but go over the application with a fine tooth comb to ensure ALL documents and items on the application are correct. Ensure all the 'i's are dotted and the 't's are all crossed. (figure of speech - make sure it's all 100% correct) A letter from the employer detailing the necessity of needing to continue his employment, and a good description of his duties. That's about the best that he can do. Sometimes persistence pays off. We did have one on here a couple of months ago who was rejected around 6 times and eventually got renewed. But the majority, unless there is something major like a substantial salary increase and/or additional qualifications, haven't been so lucky.

good luck

If there is not stated expiration date on the letter, then it doesn't expire. But, you would have to use some common sense as well :o as I reckon getting married a couple of years after getting the letter, could result in MOM changing their criteria like they have been with a lot of things recently. Remember, if you put it off long enough, they may well say no later if things change.

Hi,

This is my first post here.

I have been searching throughout the internet until I found this thread.
I have followed very closely because I am currently faced with a similar situation.

I intend to marry an ex WP holder. She is now back in her hometown.

From my understanding, I need to apply from MOM for approval, but what I would like to know in which I have searched everywhere but to no avail, is :

1. What do I need to prepare before I go to MOM to submit my application?
2. Does anyone know the criterias for approval?
3. Does she needs to be here when I go to MOM?

Thank you very much

As she was previously on a WP, she will still have to gain permission from the MOM in order to ROM here. This in spite of the fact that she may be on an S pass now. The rules state "if you have 'ever' been on a WP". The odds are it will be granted with no real problem, but if you forego it and marry in another country. There will be hell to pay and you could find yourself having to immigrate to her country if you want to be together. So, apply for permission BEFORE doing anything silly.
