Married a Singaporean Citizen - Moving to Singapore

Post by chrisso » Thu, 14 Oct 2004 10:38 pm

Wondering if someone can help.

I have just married to a Singaporean Citizen here in Malta and we are planning to move to Singapore and register our marriage in Singapore.

When we arrive in Singapore this November, will I be give freedom of movement in Singapore? Since I am married to a Singaporean Citizen, am I able to live and work in Singapore automatically?

Would be great to hear from people who have gone through this or know the answers.

This may help, I am getting married in Singapore and found this on the internet site: ... ration.asp

"What are the common things I need to know, as a Singaporean/PR who have married overseas?
A 1) The law does not require couples who contracted marriages overseas to re-register (includes "converting" or "endorsing" a foreign marriage certificate) with the Singapore ROM. The marriage certificate issued by the competent authority of the foreign country may be accepted as prima facie evidence of a marriage between the parties named in the certificate.
2) You may update agencies which you have dealings with, about your new marital status. For example, you may wish to update your marital status with CPF Board (Central Provident Fund) to change nomination of CPF beneficiary.
3) If you wish to insert your husband's name into your identification documents, you may contact the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority.
4) If your spouse is a foreigner and you like to obtain permanent residence or citizenship for him/her, you may seek the advice of the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority. "

Hope this helps
