That is beyond our scope here. I'm afraid you will have to direct your question directly to MOM on that one. They are actually very helpful as long as you present your questions correctly and be patient. Frankly, I would make a trip to MOM and ask to see an officer in order to clarify the procedure. When you go there, make sure you have your ROM Certificate and the letter that MOM gave your for her dispensation to allow her to marry. That should suffice and clear up the medical at the same time. (you might want to get the letter from her doctor prior to the visit to MOM as well).

To my knowledge, the banned can be from 5 to 7 yrs. 7 yrs is standard. More than that I do not know

Look, what you did out of ignorance or otherwise is your own perrogative and now you have to pay the consequence of your action. My brother married to a foreigner overseas, she never works in SG b4. All their kids were born (2 boys) overseas while he was working there. Moreover he was an ex-cop and yet he still has to wait for 5 damned years to get SPR for his wife.
No amount of money and time spend on lawyers, MPs, Ministers could make ICA or MOM change their stance. Why the delay ? Only GODZILLA knows.
What I do know is what I have informed you but my gut feelings it could be longer.Personally I would consider your next move carefully whether appeal and keep on appealing to Gahmen or going back to your own country with your child and your bf.I do not pity you but I pity your child born into this world thru no fault of the child and has to suffer for it.
You have to make this choice and good luck

hello everyone!

Does anyone have an idea of the criteria or basis of MOM to lift the ban for ex-work permit holder ??..
If the ex-work permit holder upgraded her skill or educational attainment,does it help /benefit in lifting the ban?

But is there such case where they ban the holder FOREVER?
on what grounds??

HOw about the kids?? will they be given a chance to become PR despite the face they were born out of wedlock?

any ideas plssssss

There is not any criteria or basis to get them to lift the ban. That's the problem. You and your bf broke the law of MOM. Therefore you are banished from Singapore. Maybe, sometime in the future, had you and your bf actually been married, it might have become possible, but now, you have not one but two errors. One, you go pregnant on a Work Permit and two, you had a child out of wedlock.

No. At least not at the moment.

But is there such case where they ban the holder FOREVER?
on what grounds??

Let's put it this way, I've never actually known anybody who had the ban lifted. I was told recently of one but I cannot confirm this. It was a case where the husband (Singaporean) had to get the PM to intercede on his behalf and that the Husband had to be earning over 2000/mo. But, in this case, they were at least legally married. Whether this is true or not, I cannot confirm.

Grounds? You and your bf broke the law. How much more grounds do you need?


HOw about the kids?? will they be given a chance to become PR despite the face they were born out of wedlock?

No idea.

any ideas plssssss

Singaporean marrying a Malaysian

Postby viewer » Tue, 29 Jun 2010 1:10 am

Hi all,

Male is a Singaporean. Female is Malaysian, been working for 5-6 years on Work Permit.

Female is wholesome, normal girl. No smoking, no alcohol, no night life, basically a simple and wholesome person. Just work, and have good friends. No criminal records, no immigration rule/law violations (been working here for 5-6 years on Work Permit after all).

What are the chances of them marrying? Is there any chance to get in touch with an MOM officer to explain things on a deeper and more detailed manner?

Their love is real, and normal (not tumultuous or dramatic). Just a "couple-next-door" story.

Lastly, where is the form to apply for permission to get married?

Hi, thanks for your reply. I've read that 4th Schedule from another download via the MOM website. That Schedule only states that the Malaysian female (on Work Permit) must obtain permission from the Controller (MOM?) before marrying.

But how does she go about obtaining said permission?
