What is GLPR? Or have you somehow mangled "Landed Permanent Residence"?

You will either be on a LTVP (long term visit pass) or you will be a PR as well. If you are one a LTVP, you will not be able to work unless you qualify for your own Employment Pass. If you gain PR at the same time, you can go to work as soon as you are able to find suitable employment.

thx for ur prompt response, GLPR - stands for Globally Landed Permanent Resident

i have 1 clarification, u say i can either be granted PR or long term visit pass??? r u saying that my husband gets the PR but for my application (which is not an independent one but as his spouse) there can be more than 1 outcome?

Sure. But if PR was applied for both, then normally if it granted, both would get it. Unfortunately you did not say that in your initial post, only that your husband was applying from some strange program that doesn't exist. However, yes, it is possible if you just recently married but they found his suitable but maybe the marriage was a "marriage of convenience". Has happend a lot in the past 5 years or so if it's a newlywed situation.

There is no such thing as Globally Landed Permanent Residence. It's just "Landed Permanent Residence".

thx for getting bk - we were directed by the SIN embassy to this site (http://www.migration.com.hk/IndexE.htm) & the tabs there & the application forms refer to it as GLPR

just to rephrase my situation to u, my husband is the one applying for the GLPR, iam applying as his spouse & under the children category our 6 yr old son.

there's a HKD 9000 fee per application,

my q is what status will I get on my visa? will i get my own PR status or will it be something else?

Okay, it's just SMC pulling the wool over unsuspecting prospective PR eyes.

I checked out the site and it's SMC's HK version of their site. They are the sole agents to process Landed PR applications. You will notice on their local site it doesn't mention global at all.

http://www.smcmc.com/immigration/immigration.html

Additionally, if you really want to go to the source try ICA's site (government site) which also shows the link to SMC.

For (e) Foreigners Residing Overseas who are Interested in Taking Up In-principle Permanent Residence in Singapore

Foreigners residing overseas may apply for In-principle Permanent Residence
Application at SMC Management Consultants Pte Ltd. SMC can be reached at the
following address for more details.

But in answer to your question, now that we know exactly what you have spent your money on. Yes, you will also get PR as will your child. Who, by the way, if he does take up PR, will be required to do National Service in Singapore. Plenty of threads on this subject in the Strictly Speaking Sub-Forum under the General Forum here.
