Dependent pass rejection reason

Postby Steven Tun » Wed, 30 Nov 2011 2:00 pm

I m EP Q1 holder & my pass was approved last 2 months ago. Last week I apply dependent pass for my wife. She work in Singapore before with work permit pass. May 2011 she cancelled her permit n went back to home town. But dependent pass application was rejected. The reason they give was just "unsuccessful" which I dont really know what it is. Then I ask some of my friend and they say dependent pass is very difficult at the moment even for PRs. Some suggest wait for another 6 months n apply. But what really get my attention from some of my friend answer was my wife marital status in last time work permit. There might be problem the agent from that time has written SINGLE in my wife work permit application. I m really worry about that now. Do u think that might be the case or any other than this? Pls help & give me some advise what should I do now and what really they mean when rejection reason was unsuccessful. Pls help me with some info coz I really need my wife to be here with me. Thanks in advance to u all.

Hi, when did you get married? was your wife's employment terminated by any reason? MOM may see a marriage of convenience if you got married recently or her employment terminated by any reason before as your wife used to work here as Work Permit holder.
Fyi, I got my wife's dependent pass successful six months ago and just get it renewed last week with no problem, so I dont think the process is tough recently.
Btw, for PRs, they only can apply Long Time Visit Pass for spouse, not DP.

There is a difference between a dependent pass for EP holder and a LTSVP for a PR. It sounds like the officals might have mixed up what you are applying for. An ex work permit holder who got married to a PR / Citizen without the blessing of the govt is not allowed to reside in Singapore for 10 years. I suspect that they might think that the same rule applies here - which it doesn't. I suggest that you appeal the decision and try to get a face to face meeting (and get your companies HR dept involved too if you can).

Sorry for lack of info in my post. Our date of married in marriage cert was October 2009 (it's a real). And she came to work here with WP on October 2010. But agent might indicate Single when they apply for her WP in 2010. And I ve already submitted translated marriage cert to MOM & got rejected.
Anyway to solve this problem? Thanks for yr answers anyway.
