Deported to Vietnam

Postby Hienandy » Fri, 15 Mar 2013 6:21 pm

I had a girlfriend who had overstay and she has been deported back to vietnam. How long she can come singapore again? If i were to marry her in vietnam, what will the procedures be like? How can i apply for a long term there? Will the marriage cert be reconisgned in singapore? After marriage, how long she can come back singapore? Do i need to work in order to get the long term or i can apply straight after our marriage?

i think ICA may be able to tell her/you how long her ban is.

of course you can marry her in vietnam. i'm not sure what their culture entails - i'd imagine money and/or livestock might be involved. and some paperwork with their marriage registry too.

if you're not working, how would she be financially supported in singapore? (she is not allowed to work with LTVP)

btw, has she worked in singapore under a Work Permit before?

may i also ask how old you are, and if you're a singaporean?

Garbage input = garbage output + wasting everyone's time.

Did your girlfriend previously work or live in SG prior to this deportation (you failed to reply to Taxico on this)?

You say you want to go to VN, marry her and live there. Then you ask how long she can stay in SG for. It's very confusing.

I would imagine a VN wedding certificate would be recognised in SG. If needs be you could have it certified at the VN embassy in SG.

This forum is about SG; I doubt anyone can give you detailed immigration/legal advice re: VN.

If you do go and get married in VN then I think you will have to stay there some time (a year? two?? more???... no idea) before SG-ICA will consider it more than a marriage of convenience.

How would she support you if you cannot work in VN?

The questions that matters:

How long of an overstay? How was she caught? Did MOM catch her working? Was she caught in vice activities? Did she turn herself in? How much time did she serve?

I've heard if it is just a simple over-stay without being caught for some other illegal activity, three years.

As she was deported it doesn't sound good at all. I don't think marrying her be it here or in VN is going to fix your troubles.
Go to ICA and talk to an officer. Nobody here is going to help you especially, as mentioned, you can not really express yourself and give any solid information.

yeah, i overstayed years and years ago and didnt get deported. visa just got renew without any issue at the checkpoint. i came in via changi (had a 4 weeks visa) and then went to JB and coming back, had a 1 week visa (which i was told was standard). didnt know about that thinking it will be 4 weeks again.

you dont get deported automatically if you overstay unless it is something bad!
