Parent Immigration & Spouse Job

Post by Gahlot » Thu, 07 Mar 2013 6:46 pm

Hello Everyone,

Am relocating to Singapore from India. I was wondering if I can invite my parents to Singapore to stay with me during my full stay of 3 years.

Also, are spouses allowed to work in Singapore on dependent Visa?

I will appreciate yr insights on the above.

Thanks

The changes, from 1 September 2012 are as follows:

S Pass and Employment Pass (EP) holders need to earn a fixed monthly salary of at least $4,000 to sponsor the stay of their spouses and children here.
P1 Pass holders will no longer be able to bring in their parents-in-law. They may still bring in their parents, spouses and children.
P2 Pass holders will no longer be able to bring in their parents or parents-in-law. They may still bring in their spouses and children.
Additionally, your spouse may work on a Letter of Consent IF she can find an employer and an occupation that is allowed by the MOM. She doesn't have to qualify for a working visa in order to work, but the Letter of Consent is only valid for the duration of the EP holder's pass validity dates.
