It looks to me like your marriage is one of convenience. I'm sure the government are looking at it the same way. Once you have been married for a couple of years and have a child or two, maybe. Just maybe, the ICA will allow you to come in on an LTVP. Otherwise, you will have to find a job here and get an employment pass like everybody else. Once here on an EP then you can work on getting PR under the family ties scheme (or PTS scheme).

How did you apply for LTSVP. ? Did your spouse sponsor you ?
Did she show proof of income ?
I am guessing here but did you work in Singapore before ?
Did you seek clarification of marriage with ICA and did they state reason for rejection ?
Your last short visit pass was rejected because you have too many run in on the immigration. You have to return to the point of departure i.e Pakistan. Come back after a month, you will get 30 days again.
Your spouse must do the legwork now. Go to ICA to seek clarification for LTSVP rejection.
Are you working or studying now? in Singapore or Malaysia?
Lastly may I know what is your wife age ?

You say you're going to go to the UK to do an MBA, and yet you seem to be rather challenged to write coherent English.

How do you reconcile the two?

It's probably one of those shady twinned programmes like they have up at sunway college in malaysia. They might be twinned, but they ain't the same, that's for sure. distance degrees aren't looked upon very favourably by the MOM here. In fact, recently we found out that NONE that are twinned with a certain middle eastern country are approved for consideration. ........

MBA completed in 12 mths linked to The University of Grimsby. Why waste your money. You are going to be taking MBA with a level of English that would only just see you pass High School. And as for going to the UK, i think you would find it very hard to get a Student Visa now.

There is a University of Grimsby?

My earlier point was a serious one though. I recall going to an MBA evening at City University London. The idea being that the evening allowed one to judge for yourself whether the course and faculty were right for you. It included several examples/self-tests of the skill-levels that were required.

The long and short of it was my poor English grammar alone was enough for them to advise me 'not to bother'.

Majority of MBA's in the UK are not really for the sake of an "MBA". They are actually terrrrrrrrrrrific value for money.

Consider this: 1 year MBA in non-top tier university costs like less than 10k Pounds. You work part time and you can meet the living expenses. You can choose a university as far away as scotland.Then you get a 2 year work visa and can do any kind of work anywhere in the UK and easily earn back much much more than the 1 year MBA investment by doing any kind of a job

This loop hole was exploited all this while until recently the gahmen there has tighten the screws and the 2 year work visa is no longer available. This is not just bad news for the economic immigrants. Its also bad news for most of the universities there that were surviving on the basis of foreign student's higher fees.

I suspect the Uni of Grimsby doesnt fall in to this category though ...... Upside is you might be able to work part time at the fish finger factory (assuming it still exists) :)

I suspect you are right! My initial thought was that it sounded like something from a Bernard Manning joke! :)

I'm just curious, but why would you get newly married, try to get an LTVP for Singapore, despite planning to go and do an MBA in the UK? Why go to the UK when you could do the course in SG/Malaysia, be with your new wife, and your proficiency in English might be less of an issue?

p.s. I've just had a thought, and hope you don't mind be mentioning it. I wonder if ICA looked at your wife's age and made a judgment on the likelihood of her having children. If they thought it unlikely, maybe granting you an LTVP was nothing more than giving you residency with nothing obvious being returned to Singapore (taxes, children etc)

Sorry guys, i was messing. What i was getting at was the fact that it could be called anything. And no i don't think there is a uni in Grimsby. All in all studying in the UK, for a student from a different country is soooooooooo hard and more to the point you are from Pakistan, which would raise eyebrows cause of your age. :shock:
