Dependant Pass information

Post by sam_77 » Thu, 08 Sep 2005 4:15 pm

Hi,

Is there a minimim time period for expiry that should be remaining on passport of the dependant for applying for a Dependant pass ? Is it like that the passport of dependant should have minimum of 6 months (or more) on his/her passport for expiry then only his/her DP can be applied ? There is nothing regarding this on the MOM site. Can someone guide pls ASAP.

Thanks in Advance

Sam

yes, you need to have a minimum of 6 months left on your passport before Singapore will give you a dependant pass or an employment pass. I assume a work pass would be the same.

My friend has had an Indonesian GF for over a year now and wants to bring her to Singapore but they are not legally married. As he is not a PR he cannot apply to sponser and she has already been knocked back for a Students Pass.

I have heard somewhere that a common law/de facto spouse application can be used for DP applications - I want to advise my friend bnefore he does something stupid like get a marraige cert or such...

Bafna,

You have to be legally married to apply for a DP so your friends will not be elligable for it. Depending on which country he is from and the class of his employment pass they will be able to apply for a Long Term Social Visit Pass for her.

De facto doesn't apply in Singapore. In Australia it's possible, but not in Singapore because it's a pro-family culture. The government does not encourage de facto relationships. You can't even apply for a flat unless you are ROMed.
