Funny thing is that MoM seem willing to issues LTVPs to people who 'have a relationship... which exists'
OK another perspective in a simpler way
Anything related to working in SG you go to MOM. For this particular issue LTVP applied under common law spouse thru MOM will be sufficient for ICA for approval once vetted by MOM.
Notarising must be from either SG Mission overseas or Public Notary. True likeness with orginal PP as proof is sufficient. Of course the officials in th embassy has to cover their arse when they said they are not lawyer per se.
Anyway lawyers are always liars
Anything related to immigration will be under the purview of ICA.
GF or BF as common law spouse is more to accommodate the trend right now , I believe was changed after feedbacks from EDB, MNCs relocating here , head hunters and business communties trying to attract good FTs.
Same sex marriage, I heard about it but not so common during my time so I do not know. SMS knows better
Having said that, SG racial and religion identity does not recognise same sex marriage period. Gahmen knows about it but put a blind eye
