question about Long term visit pass

Postby randomrockz » Thu, 07 Apr 2011 7:43 pm

Hello. I moved to Singapore about a month ago and am currently on EP which is one year valid. I am planning to bring my wife,son and mother-in-law after five months from now, so which will make it six months from my entry. Employer has agreed to get the DP done for my wife and son. I am planning to get Long term visit pass for my mother-in-law since she will have to stay with us for all the time that we will be here. The question is, will it affect if I apply for the Long term visit pass after six months bcoz my EP will only be valid for six months then? Is there a better way that anyone can suggest? Of couse employer will renew the EP at the end of one year, but I am worried if this will become a problem when I apply for Long term pass.

Employment Pass holders may apply for this pass for their

- parents,
- in-laws
- common law spouses
- step children
- handicapped children
- unmarried daughters above the age of 21

Applications and renewals take about 2 weeks. Application can be submitted online by the employer with a processing time of about seven working days.

The Long-Term Visit Pass holder is required to obtain an Employment Pass or a Work Permit in order to work in Singapore.

For your question , no, it will not effect your EP validity as LTSVP approval comes from ICA not MOM and it is review on its own merit
