getting married to a dependamce pass holder

Post by robatron6k » Sat, 13 Mar 2010 2:26 pm

Hello! I tried to google this question, but it seems difficult to get the answer I need.

I am in love with a woman who lives in Singapore under on a dependence pass from her mother's job. We plan to get married, and i want to stay in Singapore.

I was wondering if this is even possible. I know if she were a PR then all would be okay, but since she is just staying here under her the dependence pass would i even be able to stay as well? Would i be able to get a dependence pass from her mom's work permit? I forget the name of the work pass she has, but i know its the highest one. Anyway, I have a decent amount of cash saved up from over the years so i don't need to worry about a job and can support myself with foreign (US) money for a few years.

Thanks for readign!

Think you are out of luck. Unmarried children aged under 21 of EP P and Q1 pass holders can have DP. Unmarried daughters over 21 of P pass holders can have LTVP. Key provision is "unmarried" according to the MOM website. Look up the MOM website - click on Employment Pass then About the Pass section then click on Passes for Family Members. It's all there.

So basically you would screw up her legal state in SG by marrying her :)

Then neither you nor her would be able to stay around.
Get her to apply for PR and then marry her to get a LTVP yourself.
