This is an obvious reversal (or should I say, something we've not heard about yet) but, yeah, does sound like you are being adopted. :lol:

Wow! Approved under some scheme that doesn't officially exist? It's no wonder people land up here confused as heck.

I don't understand though, have you had an LTVP approved, or is it that the lawyer/corp have decided on a route forward with which to apply, perhaps when you're in-country on an SVP?

It's just that I thought you had to personally file an LTVP application, and it usually takes a couple of weeks to come through... plus you'd surely have had to provide all the usual reams of documents...?

Oh well, let us know when you do, meanwhile congrats :)

I'm sure it hasn't been issued at of yet, but they may well have gotten an in principle approval to be finalized upon arrival, similar to the old LPR (Landed Permanent Resident) scheme that was mothballed last year.

It still has to be finalized on arrival.

I've just found this post and come to the last page......
Has anyone heard or found out more to wrap this up? Was there success?

If you have read this thread, then you should already surmised that she will not arrive in Singapore until sometime in July or possibly August as her post on March 13th indicated she had to pack up everything in "four months".

Interesting though as while it's being treated as a Union, apparently ICA will not be issuing a LTVP+, hence the requirement/guarantee that she cannot work and the Singaporean partner will be responsible for her.

Just read threw this thinking wow I hope she gets in, then was pleased she made it, jsut missing the happy ending where she comes back and explains how much she loves it here and the full details of how one New Yorker buck'd the system :o

Yes, it would be nice to see people who come ask information to come back and tell us what happened to help future people in similar situations, like Thomas on the other thread. I am certain he'd find this useful if Joanna hadn't deleted posts and not explained what happened.

Unfortunately in a case like this where Joanna said her partner's company's lawyers were going to obtain the pass, the lawyers may have instructed her to remove the posts. If MOM really does monitor the forums regularly, it wouldn't be difficult to figure out which 'non-standard' application coming in (and probably delivered directly by a large company's legal or HR dept) belonged to this poster.
