Singapore Expats

Appealing ICA decisions??

Moving to Singapore? Ask our regular expats in Singapore questions on relocation and their experience here. Ask about banking, employment pass, insurance, visa, work permit, citizenship or immigration issues.

What trailing spouse? :???:
Not you, but in general trailing spouses (who do not have children or have a maid)
Basically I think I covered that below....

Normally immigration officers are gods unto themselves, just like they are in Australia and the US, where I am originally from. They don't have to answer to anyone. Appeals, in this country, unless you can present NEW data that is relevant to the case, is doomed before applying for it. Another problem you have is the Asian (Singaporean) perspective. Singapore is a patriarchal society. It is in that vein that a lot of their decisions/mindsets are framed. As the male, it is assumed that the female will follow the male, rather than vice versa. Therefore, the fact that you have not shown any sign or attempt to "root" yourself here (rental property that is not in your name doesn't count one iota) would lead the officer to think you stay here is only meant to be temporary.

Then again, maybe not. I have NEVER been on an LTVP at all. Nor a Dependents Pass. I lived here as a tourist on a tourist visa for the first 11 years. So, technically, I wasn't a parasite, but one of the favoured ones (tourists with money to burn......)
And what about trailing spouses??

I am he.

Though I did get to pay the rent :?

I think that's what, in politicospeak, is called collateral damage! :lol:
