Until you have been married AT LEAST 2 years you are wasting your time applying for PR for you wife. The same goes for applying for citizenship. You need to be a PR at least through one REP and into the second REP before applying. Applying for citizenship without your wife having PR is a total waste of time, effort and money. It will take you a minimum of 7.5 years to get citizenship from this point. two years to get PR for your wife plus 5+ years as a PR for you wife before you can both file together. Even then, there are no guarantees.

That could actually work against you.

1. Singapore already has met their quotas for Indians.
2. It has been established that they're clamping down on foreigners having their relatives tag along on DP's, LTSVP's and such.

I fail to see the causality of delivering in Singapore and being able to apply for a pass.

Why weren't you converted with them? Were you already an adult or were you living in India with other member of your family? I'm trying to figure out Why you apparently didn't have to do NS as this may well be a stumbling point with ICA as it seems odd that they are naturalized citizens when their child is not. Please enlighten us.

Despite of huge cloud of potential whoopsie with ICA on your side, I will still advise on your mom-in-law's part.

Answer: Not likely.

Sorry. Like what other regulars said above, ICA is already hell bent on clamping on trailing passes behind Indian PRs. Your wife is already having a hard time getting a PR. Having your mom-in-law on LTVSP will be almost impossible.

Here is my suggestion:

Your mom-in-law being in Singapore is to serve the purpose of taking care of your preggy wife and consequently, your newborn and your post-natal confined wife, right?

1. Forget it. Let your parents take care of her instead. (you said they're naturalised Singaporeans right?) That should solve A LOT of problems. Common sense.

2. Have your wife to deliver in your hometown, in comfort zone of your mom-in-law and familiarity. Then come back once she and her baby is done. After all, there is no guarantee if she can renew her LTVSP after it expires anyway while she is here :oops!: let alone getting PR approved in the meantime. Then worry about her next pass after she's ready with your baby.

Sounds good? Or still not good enough?

Not the same thing. One is worried about lack of documents and another is worried about the possibility itself ;)

Hence I said 'slightly different situation' :mrgreen:

But it is related in a way so I hope the OP is able to see and compare and discern.
