visit pass (long term)

Post by bex_140 » Tue, 06 Oct 2009 2:54 am

Hi

I have recently had my EPEC approved and sent to me :) i have applied for a visit pass (long term) is this the same as LTSVP?! i have a couple of questions I hope someone can help me with....

1. i have applied for the LTSVP (2 weeks ago) and now read somewhere that when it is approved you have to attend within one month to present documents in singapore - i am now only able to head out to singapore in January, do you think I should cancel this application and resubmit when I am in Singapore??

2. I am hoping to do some traveling when I come out to Singapore - can you do that on a LTSVP or does it get cancelled when you leave the country?

3. Is it possible to rent a condo/appartment on a LTSVP?

I have been trying to find this info on the MOM/ICA websites but cant find the answers.

I would really appreciate to hear from anyone with experience of the LTSVP/EPEC process!

Thanks for any help!

Might be good to cancel it as you can't pick it up yet. They are rather quick with LTSVPs so they should be done soon and you can't pick it up, not a good solution. The idea is that you go to SG the way you would as a tourist and then change to LTSVP when you are there.

2. I am hoping to do some traveling when I come out to Singapore - can you do that on a LTSVP or does it get cancelled when you leave the country?

No problem. The LTSVP is multi entry.

3. Is it possible to rent a condo/appartment on a LTSVP?

Yes. Only once you have it though.

Hi Rebecca, LTSVP stands for long term social visit pass, so yes that is one and the same. For the remaining answers see above in blue.

Thank you so much for your quick reply! It is definately exciting planning our move to Singapore, but at times a bit overwhelming, so your help is very appreciated. I am kinda hoping to keep my sanity!

I have moved many times internationally around the globe and the most important thing is planning ahead. The internet is a wonderful tool and you can get all the information you need. By the time you reach Singapore all you should have left to do is take your "shopping list" and do what is on it. No need to compare mobile phone plans when you are there, you can do that now already. No need to decide which area you want to live in when you are there, you can do that now... at will be easy, so don't worry.

As you have no employment or EP lined up make sure to have a back up plan and set yourself a timeframe because since last month it seems EPs are hard to come by unless you earn over SGD7k a month.
