Where is your girlfriend from? Thailand? Or the Philippines?

If either of the above, she may well have been here before on a different passport and has been recognized by Singapore's Photo recognition software as she came through immgration. Once confirmed that she had used a different passport.....Wham!

She is from Malaysia.Never use different passport or name.ICA Issue her a refuse entry form stating "No eligable to issue pass under current immigration rules" at the woodland custom.

She renew social vistor pass till it reach the max of 60 days either at checkpoint or ICA building.she is very careful not to hit the 60 days in 3 months. she will stay out of singapore for 1 to 2 months once going to hit the max.

So I guess the obvious question is...........

What is she doing with all the time she seems to be spending in Singapore if she's obviously not a student nor working nor married to a Singaporean?
Is her health card current? :-|

Why don't you seek help from your Member of Parliament? I'm told Singaporeans do that all the time.
