student pass holder can carry the baby during the pregnancy?

Postby sailornaraa » Tue, 26 Jul 2011 9:22 pm

Hello veryone,
I really reaally want to get pregnant when i go to my home country. Because i have few month to finish the my course. so i want to use these months when i am pregnant. so is there any restriction for that?
but i dont want to give birth in singapore. after i finish, i will be already at my home. also i will have prenatal package and check my pregnancy. so please tell me, is it OK? ICA allow me continue to study?
i hope, i will get pregnant in sep, so my course will finish march, so that time i will be 24 weeks. so i can fly back home. then next sep i will get job in my contry.
me love

I'm pretty sure ICA can't tell you what to do with your body. If you are not visibly pregnant when you enter the country and you do not plan to give birth here (you may have to get permission to do that, I don't know the particulars) I really think you have the freedom to procreate as you want and the ICA can't do anything about it. But if you come and go from the country while visibly pregnant you may open yourself up to extra scrutiny.

There is nothing wrong in getting pregnant but if you travel back and forth during your third trimester , you may not be allow to travel by air yet alone enter SG if ICA border control officers can see the physical change in yourself. ICA border officers has the right to refuse you entry to SG if you are on the third trimester unless prior permission is given
Although you do not want to give birth here whereby you need permission from ICA go to www.ica.gov.sg for details

If you're that worried, why not just wait another 6 months? At 25 you still have many years of babymaking in your future, no real need to rush. When you have your baby in your arms looking back at those 6 months it will seem very very insignificant.

That is why my dead grandmother always said " Never believe in gossip as it spread like wild fire and there is always no truth in it !!"

Look, although I am not a woman, it takes two to tango and getting pregnant is not like shooting with an arrow and a bow where nine out of ten you will hit a target unless you are blind as a bat.

There is alot of hearsay in your post and alot of unnecessary worries for something you are not even sure of !! Go to ICA and check with your enrolled school to conform their guideline before even you dare to contemplate to get pregnant even if you are pretty sure that both of you will be on target by September :P

I would rephrase: "...but it may not be that simple".
On the other hand, in this particular case you are probably right with your more strict approach.

Female student pass holders are subject to random pregnancy tests .. and you get a letter asking you to submit the results, from a clinic, within 14 days ..

And getting pregnant on Student Pass, in view of a horde of violations, abuses and contravention of the pass terms - invokes your cancellation of your pass.

Good luck ..


PS: Student pass is to study, not to get pregnant .. correct me if I am wrong ..

She is unlikely going to get pregnant using the student pass.
