Ensure you have a copy of your marriage certificate and that it is NOT dated before you received your PR. Apply for an LTSVP initially for her. Once you have received that, then if you want apply for PR for her as well. Whether or not they grant it will depend on how long you have been a PR and how long you have been married. If they suspect that it is a marriage of convenience they may tell you to reapply in a year or 2 years. You will just have to apply to find out.

I have been working in sg for 10 yrs plus and just obtained the PRs last yr. While applying for the PR, I declined that I am single becos I am afraid that I will be send back to Malaysia becos all the while I did not update my martial status. But now I realised that I am struck unless I can obtain a non-dated marriage certificate or may I can register with my wife for marriage in sg. And my second problem is I have a 8yrs old son and I am not sure if they will look into my profile again if i apply him to sg and stay.

It's not nice to lie to Immigration and the Ministry of Manpower. Eventually, one ALWAYS gets caught out sooner or later. Now you have impacted the lives of two other people with your deceit. Good luck. With an 8 year old son, if you apply for PR for them both, then the boy will have to do NS. With that in mind, maybe you will somehow get by, deceit and all. :-|

You have to deal with the govt like a business transaction which is what I tell everybody. Odds may be in your favor with a son but there is no guarantee. Dangle your son in front of them and they might dangle other benefits in front of you. Do the numbers and a risk analysis and decide if its good business.

I would come clean and if there are any questions, just explain that you are single while in Singapore that's why you ticked the box marital status, you thought meant in Singapore! :lol: , and married when you go home, it was an error that's all. tell em straight pure singlish lah but ya know what i mean right!
