Personally I find the whole visa / pass situation extremely unfair and biased now. It's clearly stressed and under a lot of different tensions in different directions. My current whinge is that my wife who is on an LTSVP and is the mother of SC children cannot work in Singapore which DP holders can obtain an LOC.
Now I'm called PNGMK

I think if they had their way, they would have allowed the parents to come to SG as well, like they did earlier.

But ever since the locals started crying father crying mother about the crowding in MRTs, I guess some scholar in the ministry got this idea of minimizing the negative impact by reducing the collateral damage first before reducing the actual FTs

Cant she get an EP on the basis of her own ability? Not even an S pass?

Long term vs short term I guess. How about LTVP+ ?

AFAIK LTVP+ is only for SC spouse and OSOD is PR

Well, I know people, who are SC, who's children were born while the mother was in SVP - well, the children are SC and the mothers were until recently on SVP = higher medical fee, no medical insurance et al ...

Only recently one guy's wife got a 12 months LTVP and another - whose child is two years old, a 6 months LTVP - the father's mistake was being a taxi driver -> no CPF / Fixed income = not favourable in ICA's eyes, is the conclusion ..

And even for SCs, LTVP + is not a given ..
