Which LTVSP is better?

Postby CrazyChina » Sat, 09 Apr 2011 11:09 pm

Hi all,

I have a China wife. We are married on 01 Nov 2010. I have applied for her LTVSP but was rejected and I appeal and again was rejected. She had a five year old child and I intend to apply for the child to study in singapore. I can apply for her LTVSP this coming June 2011. But if I am applying for the child to study in Singapore, I can also apply for her to accompany the child with LTVSP. Which LTVSP is better or easier to apply? Can she get pregnant when she is here on any of the LTVSP? I hope to have a child soon. I appreciates all replys and opinions. Thank you.

And to add on. I had a big increase in salary and is thinking maybe this might helps in the application of LTVSP. Thank you all.

Only being married for 5 months, ICA probably figures that your China Bride is a marriage of convenience. If it's been rejected 2x already, it is not going to make much difference as her file has already been flagged. But don't let that stop you from applying again. Just be prepared to be rejected again.

$2500 used to be the minimum income before spouse was eligible, so your rejections are probably to do with your financials.

Though things may have changed with all the new passes being increased, so it's very possible that the minimum income to have spouse in Singapore may also rise. You need to check with ICA on the updated criteria if it's in the process of being changed and which date it becomes effective.

She can also apply for her siblings to study and also accompany them, on a LTVSP though she cannot take up employment the first year.

You need to ensure you are eligible, with your income.

I am prepared to face the rejection and try harder every rejection.
My income is definitely more than sufficient to cover the minimal. So do u guys think that applying for LTVSP accompanying her child to study in Singapore will be easier? Thank you all for replying.

Without knowing why she was rejected, it is a difficult to say. Why not try to get more information.

You could try and get the student visa and LTVSP if its straight forward enough, there is obviously a reason why she is being rejected, maybe the forms haven't been filled in correctly. or information is missing like her previous divorce papers. Aru you sure you sent in all the paperwork and had it translated too.

Dunno if i notice, but are you also China ?? :(

Anyway, when immigration says rejected, dont go and submit again blindly - known and have seen enough people 'barred from coming into the country' and to top it off, the rejection letter says 'do not apply for the next 24 months .. '

Anyway, your call ..

Hi ecureilx,

I am a 100% Singaporean. What makes you think I am from China, Lol... Actually I am also puzzled about the rejection but anyway as we are married only for five months. I can wait and try harder, no harm trying. I may even have a child first. Thank you all for replying.

Having a kid isn't going to increase your chances of her being allowed into Singapore at all, so if that's part of your reason for wanting to do it then think again. there are numerous stories of people having to live away from their children and/or spouses because they didn't follow all the rules, I believe one of our mods has such a story to tell if he so wishes.

And also think of the child who will be stuck in the middle of all this, and if things don't work out then what? A fatherless child. Better to wait until things are sorted out and your wife is here permanently and settled before you get her pregnant IMO

How did you answer the declaration below when applying?

"Have you ever been refused entry into or deported from any country?"

This is the problem when the Gahmen try to play GOD. During the 50s, the campaign "Two Is Enough" started as SG had the highest population per country in Asia based on land mass, it was so successful that the repercussion is being felt now with lowest fertility rate outside Japan for the four main races PR and local combine.The number of FT born children is almost half the number of children born in Singapore in whole.
Now, Gahmen is playing GOD again by having a blanket ban on foreign born spouse esp. China, Philippines, India while I can understand the ruse these foreign spouse use and Gahmen is adamant in putting it right but those genuine ones will suffer the most. There will be no winners in this policy .Everybody loses.
At the end with the locals having low fertility , foreign spouse difficulty in getting LTSVP, I wonder who will fight for SG in the future

Sorry mate if you are disappointed with my replies . Honestly I have no answer to you questions. I posted the previous post as a general observation. Nothing more.
Yeah, do that with the MP. I would have thought the China woman once they gave birth , the diaphragm will be removed. She had her first child with her previous spouse , yes ?
