EPEC to LTSVP

Postby Jimmy Hawk » Tue, 01 Nov 2011 5:30 pm

HI, Someone kindly assist me, i am really confused here.

I got my EPEC approved on Sep 25, 2011 and have now got EPEC certificate on Oct 20, 2011. I know that i required a short visit pass to go Singapore.But confusion is that should i apply for LTSVP from my home country or after going to Singapore? Through search on this forum, i found one post in which that guy apply from home country and got LTSVP approved.But he was asked to come to Singapore for other formalities
(such as medical report to claim his LTSVP.). HOWEVER EPEC certificate is stating that i should apply for LTSVPafter coming to Singapore.Kindly assist.

Secondly, it is mentioned on MOM website that u should apply for EPEC when you are ready to come to Singapore.I can't be in Singapore before last week of Jan 12.Whether this gap of 4 months will have any impact on the application of LTSVP?

    This topic discussed the latest thinking on whether or not you can apply for an EPEC based LTVP before arrival in Singapore.

    No it won't. Everyone one needs time to wrap up back home and pack up and move.

      EPEC to LTVP

      Postby Jimmy Hawk » Tue, 01 Nov 2011 7:17 pm

      Thanks for the prompt reply,

      i have read the link (ftopic82816-0-asc-0.html), which u suggested.I definitely messed up with all the material posted.What i have concluded is that,

      - You DON NOT need D/E card number to apply for LTSVP, If you are EPEC holder prior to coming to singapore.

      - But you do need D/E card number to apply for LTSVP, If you are applying for a child or spouse.

      My case is that, i got my EPEC approved while in my home country.So that means i should now apply for LTSVP online from my home country ubder EPEC holder section and once LTSVP approved (hopefully), i shall go to Singapore on short visit pass.Than to ICA building for the collection of my LTSVP, once they verify my original documents medical report, payment of fee and also handing over my D/E card, which i received from airport etc.).

      am i correct on this?

      Well well, if you're right that is a very interesting 'anomaly'.

      Sounds about right based on my non-expert understanding. The only thing I'd watch out for is not applying for the LTVP too early given you aren't moving until January. If and when they tell you your LTVP is approved and you need to come and visit ICA to wrap formalities up I'm sure you can't expect them to wait a few months.

      Right you comment certainly make sense.

      i would like you to kindly review the link (ftopic82816-0-asc-0.html), so that you are also aware of what is being posted there, if u are not confirmed about the posts there. which could definitely impact your opinion.

      secondly,

      Lets remove the condition that i can't be in Singapore before January, i can maange all the stuff.

      So what you suggest, should i apply for the LTSVP from my home country now?

      Thanks.

      I participated in that topic at the time, but don't have time to reread the whole thing on your behalf. Besides there is nothing more incisive or reliable that I can conclude that you cannot. So, I'd suggest that you read it and form your own conclusion! :)

      If you are able to report back to the forum how you get on, it would be appreciated by those who follow in your footsteps!

      Good luck.
