People who are successful for applying LTVP for spouse

Postby thysecret » Thu, 30 May 2013 5:00 pm

People who have experience in LTVP, successful application for LTVP, please list out what kind of education/job, salary you're earning every month and some other requirements to be able to apply for LTVP. I am worried that i can't apply my future spouse over, and he can't apply me over too because of low education and job...sighh


p.s i already know what ICA requires and i have already emailed them, they say is case by case.. but i want to "judge" what are my chances in applying him over

I earn a lot and my wife has a masters in math and two SC children. We got an LTVP pretty much straight away BUT you're applying for a man and the abbreviation for LTVP means "Ladies Temporary Visit Pass" .... really - they don't seem to give them to male spouses easily.

Personal Experience. Moderate earning female with a number of degrees. Spouse has no degree. A number of children - some PR some not. He was recently granted a LTSVP. But in the end he did not need it as his EP came through (applied for both as the rules are you can not get an EP without a degree unless you put in a special application). So yes, men can LTSVP

I suspect knowing a little bit more about you now that you fall into a highly favoured or exclusive and difficult to find category of employee. A lot of the Singaporean ladies trying to get LTVP for their male spouses seem to be failing and I believe it's because the LTVP was originally designed to provide relief to the ever increasing sore point of many SC men here with foreign wives who were not able to get PR.

No great mystery about my career. Nothing special. I suspect that my children being PR is of assistance. Also I am PR. Perhaps that is the difference
