Need information about visa for my grandmother

Postby technokraft » Tue, 04 Oct 2011 8:49 am

Hi All,
I am currently in Singapore on Employment Pass which is valid till 2012 end as of now. I want to bring my grandmother from India to stay with me and my wife in singapore. I am not sure what should be her visa type. Also she has some medical problems, so i would also like to consult and do her medication in singapore. Could someone guide me as to how i can get a long term visa for my grandmother.

I'd say, on the face of it, you are going to be out of luck for a G Parent. Parents okay, even parent in law okay. but G Parent too far removed.

Long Term Visit Pass

P Pass holders can also apply for a Long Term Visit Pass for their:

Common-law Spouse
Unmarried daughters above 21 years old
Handicapped children above 21 years old
Step-children under 21 years old
Parents and parents-in-law

You could explore ICA LTVP on medical grounds, but that might be a bit far fetched as it would seem that it's only a medication problem and not major surgery. I also think that has been done away with, except for the delivery of a child, but I can't be sure as I can't find anything concrete in writing.

Is this new? I don't think I've ever seen them officially (on a govt website) acknowledge such relationships

Yeah, reasonably new. With a lot of countries now accepting gay marriages, de facto marriages are almost respectable in comparison. Also, a lot of countries accept de facto marriages as valid "unions" as well, so rather than lose talent, they have loosened up a bit. But now they are tightening up but in other areas (e.g., as long as you are the right flavour and have the goods to put on the table.....)
