Which pass to apply for my baby

Postby cachia85 » Thu, 27 Oct 2011 5:10 pm

Hi,

I cannot find the answer for my question on ICA website so I post here hoping that someone may advise me. Our situation is as below:

- My husband is SPR.
- I'm on student pass, study PhD at NUS. I apply for PR too but was rejected on 12/10. It is only 2,5 months after I submit the application.
- We've just find out that I'm pregnant and our baby will be due in June.
- We plan to have my mother comes in Singapore to help us on the first 2 months of our baby, after that we will send her to infant care.

So, in our case which pass should we apply for our baby, LTVP then student pass or LTVP is enough? I see from ICA website that the student pass is need for foreigners attend kindergarten/childcare and the application must be submitted 2 months before. Is infant care considered as childcare? If need to be submitted 2 months before then our baby doesn't have her passport at that time.

I also wish to know which way is better for us to extend my mother stay in Singapore, can we just use the extend short term visit application or we have to apply LTVS for her. We are from Southeast Asia so she can stay in Singapore for 30 days per entry without applying visa beforehand.

Thank you very much for any advice!

since your husband is SPR, your baby can apply for PR too

First LTSVP through your Husband and then after 1 year can apply for PR.

LTSVP can go to childcare or infant care. But LTSVP for child is only one year. So need to renew every year. Apply student pass after the child got a place in primary school.

I think only admission can use PR subsidised price, but for normal check up / test outpatient will be foreigner charge..

Currently I am paying foreigner price for my Son (3months old) and I am PR.

if the baby status is not PR, after 3months, either admission / hospitalization fee or outpatient check up will be charged as private..
