Question on employment pass and girlfriend/child

Post by kidspat » Thu, 20 Apr 2006 5:18 pm

Hi there,

I've recieved confirmation of my employment pass, and i'll be heading to singapore in june to start my new job. After accepting the possition i was blessed with great news that my girlfriend was pregnant :D

My question is this, we have decided we would like the child to be born in our home country. But after this both mother and child would like to join me in singapore. What is the best way of achiving this? do i get them to travel over on tourist visa's and extend the stay or would it be easier if she was my wife?

I dont want my future wife and child unable to move and live with me in singapore does anyone have suggestions? :D

Thanks for any info!

Kidspat :shock:

Depending on the type of Employment Pass you are coming on, it is always easier to be married (as far as bringing her along that is :wink: ).

However, I believe the higher your EP rating "S", "Q" or "P" 1 or 2 the easier it is. I believe you can find the answers here with that regard.

If you can show a long-term relationship, you should be able to apply successfully for a Long Term Social Visit Pass for your partner and a Dependent's Pass or LTSVP for your child. If you decide to marry and are on P pass, no problem with DP for both wife and child. Main difference is that your girlfriend can apply to work on DP if she wants to, but not on LTSVP.
