LTSVP or DP for my father

Postby dave1981 » Fri, 15 Apr 2011 1:57 pm

dear all,
I am an Indian with EP-P2(valid for the next 2 yrs). i am planning to bring my dad here in Singapore for the next 1 year.
I know as per mom, LTSVP is the option. But my friends say that I can also apply for DP or PEP. I am confused. Any suggestions??
I heard that LTSVP is really hard to get. Any comments??

thanks, dave

You cant apply for PEP or DP for your father. You can only apply for an LTSVP.

You should believe the MOM website and not your friends. DP only for spouse and children. PEP needs to meet employment pass criteria.

Technically, your friends are right. Your dad can get a DP or PEP but for that please have a look at the requirements for those passes.

If his mum got an EP and his dad moved over with her on a DP?

Pretty far-fetched and not likely to happen I'd imagine, but technically possible

Or his grand dad or grand mom got an EP even more far fetched, but technically possible :lol:

EDIT: Ooops! I forget DP is given to children aged below 18? My bad :oops:

People are here to get help from the forum, however, reply from some members of the forum (i.e. revhappy, Jaylee etc.) do not appear to be really helpful!!! No offence plz, just my personal view.

Forums are also to express yourself and display your sense of humour and have some fun, the OP has been a great sport if you read his reply carefully

BTW, he is JayCee and not JayLee :lol: :lol:

The most obvious question and alarm bells that will be set off at the ICA is why do you want to just bring your father only in the first place? Are you married and have children? If not the ICA will just come to the conclusion that he'll be coming here to look for work and probably illegally.

@Saint: Yes I am married. No children. I lost my mom some months back and he is all alone. Thats the reason. Regarding his work/illegally, oh! I am sure he won't. he is 65 and retired from work.
