SPR male with foreign female spouse, 3 years married

Postby previousnextlife » Sat, 20 Oct 2012 9:28 pm

Hi,
I'm male 34 yrs old with bachelor degree in comp science, holding as SPR with S$3000/mth.
I have been married since 2009, with my wife. And she 30 yrs old with bachelor degree management economy.
It seem apply SPR for my wife as sponsor is not possible, when she not in here. I had applied for her twice and all rejected. However now we decided together in Singapore as today.

Genuine questions, as commonly.
How should I move forward continuing to live in Singapore?
Definitely she need to work, I read LTVP+ is not eligible to apply for SPR with foreign female spouse. For this situation does LTVP eligible for her? How long LTVP issue in first instance? Does LTVP eligible to get a job for her? Actually I want her become SPR in first place. I keen to become SC, but all these the foundation drag me to long and in matter of facts it taking me years.

I hope I can get good advise :)

If you don't mind, perhaps you can start with sharing both of your attributes (work, race, age, annual salary).

Like i mention before, I tried apply SPR as sponsor.
While she back working in Indonesia.
Which I think this is wrong action.
Now she just came to Singapore and she no work at this moment.

1 question: do you want to "dip your feet" in Singapore for a long term?

Alright. Right now, it's impossible for you to sponsor your wife:

As you might notice, gahmen are pretty strict. I'm not even sure if your wife can get a job in Singapore in current situation. What I can suggest is "upgrade" your salary, to at least 4K per month so she can stay here. But honestly, you're at disadvantage.

How in the hell did you manage to get PR in Singapore? What were they thinking! :???:

In order for your wife to be able to stay here long term, she need to obtain an LTVP.

In order to obtain an LTVP, she needs a sponsor. YOU! However, in order to act as her sponsor you will need a salary of at least $4000 per month. Otherwise, ICA will NOT give her an LTVP. Her only other alternative is to find a job. Doesn't matter if it's a work permit or an S or EP pass. Otherwise she can only get a SVP. Unfortunately, unless she is working, the Government doesn't think you can support her with only $3000/month income.
