Marriage with a yellow card holder

Postby aigk » Wed, 14 Nov 2012 8:05 pm

Hi friends,

I'm a PR and in a relationship with a "yellow card" holder.

We are from the same country. So after she surrounds her pass, we're going back to our country to register the marriage.

However, I have some concern about whether she will be allowed to enter Singapore after that? Can I apply dependent pass for her?

I've heard about such rumor that a yellow card holder would never be allowed to enter Singapore again after surrounding her pass. I'm really upset about this. From my understanding, such policy is to prevent them to do that business again.

So is that a way, for example I put a deposit in the government to guarantee her behavior? Or buy a property under her name so that she can come again?

I'm looking for your help. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

In the worst, giving up my career here seems to be my final choice.

Thank you for reading my topic.

I've heard the same rumors, and I'd assume they're true. Unfortunatly MOM doesn't publish anything at all about the yellow passes, or the requirements/restrictions on them for later. It's difficult to marry a WP holder later, I suspect it would be significantly harder for the uhm, 'yellow pass holders'.

Good luck with it though. I sure hope you've looked at this through cold hard logic and not just rosey "in love" glasses.

Ahem, forgive my ignorance but what is yellow pass? This is the first time I've heard of it.

I am not too sure but I believe yellow card is something like prostitution pass, kind of a certificate of good health for them.

...and I was thinking the OP is using football analogy of Yellow card, indicating that she was given a warning for entering too many times or something, haha.

What baffles me is that it is legal, yet there are soo many people doing it illegally. And I don't just mean the BMD(++) girls in places like Orchard Tower, but the hundreds of girls standing on the corners right outside the legal houses. And it would be so simple to put and end to, but the police don't seem to care, except for the occasional token raid and ride-along with a mediacorp reporter to put something on the news. And those girls on the corner wouldn't be there if there wasn't demand, which shocks me that it exists. Maybe there's really long queues in each of the legal houses? But then don't Singaporeans love waiting in queue? I'm really curious how there can be demand to sustain such supply.

The TFR here should give you one clue. And the huge numbers of foreign labourers who wont be found at OT will be the other.

TFR? And I didn't mean for people to go to OT. My point was, why would someone go to a girl on a street when you can walk 5 more meters to a place where it is legal and (in theory) safer?

Maybe when I'm an old Ah Pek I'll understand :D

I agree. The pimps running illegal brothels (around the world) are 'connected' enough, in the criminal sense, to be running guns and drugs as well. Level the playing field, devolve management responsibility to local madams... those connections disappear.

It is unusually an enlightened policy. It falls somewhere between that in the UK (prostitution is legal, but soliciting is not), and Holland where just about anything seems to go (though I'm sure it's not as simple as that).

What next cannabis cafe's, the logic for which is of course precisely the same? (jk)

There is no next. The enlightened British colonial govt that brought those laws in (and I'm sure that an opium den beats a cannabis cafe) are long, long gone.
