Is there a way to get a dependent pass for an over 21 year child of mine?

If the child is over 21 then the child is not. It's an adult. Different set of rules upon reaching the age of majority.

So what to do next? Unable to live here, no exceptions?

I tried to find something else this morning along the line of an exemption for say, a sub-normal man-child. (low IQ or Downs or something similar), but to no avail. This doesn't surprise me too much as it only in the last couple of years that they even provided any sort of "help" for "special needs" children. In fact, for many years that was the only way a local child could get the schooling needed was for the gahmen to give local parents an exception to allow a local special needs child to attend an International School like SAS who does have the facilities & teachers.

One possibility is to get the young adult into an approved tertiary institution and put them on a student's visa. Otherwise, you might be out of luck.

Hi,

If you child is still in University, they may be able to get a Work Holiday Pass for, I believe, up to 6 months. Hopefully they can find a permanent job and move on to an Employment Pass before the time their Work Holiday Pass is up. Also, they could apply for EPEC (Employment Pass Eligibility Certificate) and Social Visit Pass (once they get the EPEC). If both EPEC and SVP applications are successful, they could stay in Singapore for up to 1 year to look for a job. Best of luck! :)

That's good advice. Come over with nothing more than a gamble that your kid will be able to stay here, in a climate of "get rid of the foreigners". #-o

If you are on P1 or P2
you can apply LTSVP if your child is a female
