This is what I pulled out fm MOM site.
So this means tht Spouse can work on WP right?

Yes, on WP, NOT on LTVP.

But can anyone tell me - r LTVPs getting issued

I am not sure I understand your question.


If they are a parent/parent-in-law of the sponsor, they must be from an approved source country and meet the prospective company's dependency quota. The foreign worker levy will apply.
If they are a spouse or unmarried child of the sponsor, there is no need for foreign worker levy to be paid. Their employment will not be counted towards the company's dependency quota. They do not need to be from an approved source country.
This is only about the levy and some other related to WP (Work Permit) restrictions. So if he is your husband and he will sponsor you no levy is to be paid if you get the WP..
cheers

Foreign spouse of Singapore Citizen (SC) or Singapore Permanent Resident (SPR) may apply for Long-Term Visit Pass or LTVP in short, online via e-VP.

From 1 April 2012, the Long-Term Visit Pass - Plus or LTVP+ in short, provides foreign spouses of SCs with greater certainty of stay here by granting the holder a longer period of residency. LTVP+ holders will be eligible for healthcare and employment benefits. For further details on the LTVP+, please refer to the News Release.

There is no separate application for LTVP+. Foreign spouses of SCs who submit applications for LTVP would automatically be considered for LTVP+ if they are eligible. All applications for a Visit Pass are assessed on their own merits and are subject to approval.


Where do you see that? Am I missing something? See bolded by me.

Long Term Visit Pass (LTVP) holders who wish to work in Singapore and have found prospective employers will need work passes to do so. Applications for work passes (Employment Passes, S Passes or Work Permits) must be made by the prospective employer to Ministry of Manpower. Each application would be assessed on its own merits. However, these LTVP holders are not allowed to work in objectionable occupations such as dance hostesses, masseurs, etc.

Applications for an Employment Pass or S Pass will be assessed based on prevailing criteria (i.e. educational qualifications, salary, occupation, and experience).

Applications for a Work Permit (WP) will depend on the LTVP holder's relationship to their sponsor:

If they are a parent/parent-in-law of the sponsor, they must be from an approved source country and meet the prospective company's dependency quota. The foreign worker levy will apply.
If they are a spouse or unmarried child of the sponsor, there is no need for foreign worker levy to be paid. Their employment will not be counted towards the company's dependency quota. They do not need to be from an approved source country.

cheers


Hi,

Yes LTVPs are still getting issued. If you are on an LTVP and find a job, your potential employer applies for the appropriate work pass for you. Your LTVP is then cancelled once the WP/EP is issued. All they're saying is that an LTVP holder is allowed to seek employment (doesn't mean they'll be approved for the pass though!).

Guess I was reading too fast with too much on my mind. The wife's angioplasty yesterday was successful, resulting in the ballooning of the stent she got two years ago. Am at the hospital at the moment - she's been transferred from the CCU back to a normal ward and will be discharged tomorrow provided nothing goes sour.

Saw the header and the mind inserted the same in the other two paragraphs!

:oops:

She'll be alright, do not fret. Go with GOD and rest well.

BTW the mods do not like double posting, please refrain from this unless you allowed to

Will pray for her speedy recovery
