Visa question

Postby Bannockburn » Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:39 am

Hi there, we are moving to Singapore with my husbands company at the end of March. Myself and my youngest daughter will have dependants visas. We also have a 20 year old daughter studying in the UK and she will visit us frequently during holidays from college. Is there a visa we can apply for on her behalf or would she have to live in Singapore with us permanently?

I would think she could just use the tourist visas when she comes

She can have a dependent's pass until she turns 21 and then a long term social visit pass as long as she is unmarried or just go straight for LTSVP once your husband's own EP comes through. It's worth doing that if she will be here regularly for longer than 30 days. If she will be here for shorter trips, or will exit the country and then re-enter after a short trip away around the region, she can get 30 day visitors visa stamp on arrival each time by filling in the immigration card given out on the plane. My student sons just do that now as they are rarely in Singapore longer than 4 weeks during their summer break. LTSVP for sons over 21 is not an option, but allowed for unwed daughters!
PS being nosey but are you from Bannockburn?
