Is there a gap in the space between a DP and LTVP or?

So - why does an SPR - like myself - have to bring his wife in on an LTVP which does NOT allow her to work?

Seem a bit disadvantageous to PR's or did I miss something?

I guess it's because DP is of much more temporary basis than PR. Having a PR and allowing DP for PR's spouse would be like granting a sub-PR at least from a down to Earth pragmatic perspective. They want to have a better control over more permanent ability to take the jobs.


Perhaps but then an LOC mechanism could control that. I think it's a gap that's simply not been thought about and because PR's are not really complainers it will probably stay for some time this way.

The LOC control will only add more work for them and you will have a very large group with de-facto PR like rights for working here. It would look bad from both PR and SC perspective. They are not going through all this PR related scrutiny to have such big gate left open.
Besides, if they use LOC control they would have to make it more strict or go for two different standards. For the later, you would complain here again :)

Ok. Let's see what the future brings. Perhaps the employers will ramp up pressure to allow the thousands (?) of sit at home expat partners into the workforce.
