Which country is she from ??

Not a given, but from what I am hearing, from my work colleagues, as well as at church, certain countries LTVP/PR are being rejected en-mass ..



She's from the Philippines - and yes that thought had run through my mind too.

So it could be ..

A few Filipinos, married to Singaporeans, also have issue getting LTVP

Alternate, is there a big age gap ? One of the person rejected, she was 27, her husband, Singaporean, divorcee, was 52 .. ICA had even rejected even after a letter from the MP ..

Let me send you a PM

You gotta watch those May-December marriages. Less than 20% of them survive. And East-West marriages? Less than 5% of them survive past the 2nd year (and most of them are May-December marriages as well).

Yeah, I beat the odds, but my Asian wife is actually a year older than I am. Married 28 years last month.
