I guess, they didn't receive the additional documents and hence the status changed to withdrawn

Hi Wd40,

Thank you for your input.
Agree! I also feel the same. I have submitted both documents to ICA 4th floor counter after obtained the queue number within 2 weeks. So tomorrow I will to go to ICA to find out why the senior officer did not receive the documents.

Hope can resolve it tomorrow!

Tomorrow Morning, me and my wife are going to ICA for this matter. Will update you guys for possible outcome.


Hi SMS,

Just to update. The reason is my spouse is not eligible to sponsor Long Term Pass to her mother. The officer did not tell me in details. But the good things was officer automatically withdrawn application from My spouse sponsor and change the sponsorship to me. So after i checked my iEnquiry, i saw mum-in-law Long Term Pass application is pending under my sponsored application.

Please kindly advise..... it is good or bad? what will be the possible outcome! i am sure will get the outcome next couple of week later.

Finger cross and hope for the best!

Let's put it this way, it's not bad. Whether it is good or not we can only wait & hope. It sounds like there is a chance or I don't think the ICA Officer would have pointed you in that direction. Keep your fingers crossed.

Just to update my wife application will be going into the 9th week tomorrow. Still pending no new whatever so from ica. I will go down later to check with the officer at ica. I doubt I will get any news from them either but better to try then do nothing. Will update again soon on any news so brothers with similar case can take reference. Really quite frustrated on how our own country could do this to us.

Sounds like your immediate problems have been solved. Patience is normally in short supply in these types of things. Congrats. Should make life a wee bit easier now.

You are right! It had been too long, twice rejected and one appeal process then officer told me that my spouse is not eligible to apply for the pass. Any way, Singapore immigration system is really good and help and support who really in need help to look after my two children.
My mum in law with short term pass for nearly 5 months.

Hi all bros, I went to ica today. When I ask the officer over at the service counter, she check on the system n she told me ica wanted me to submit some document but when I probe more she doesn't answer to me what document I need to submit. She then gave me a queue ticket n ask me wait inside. The officer inside the big hall then said the application is still pending and ask me to wait n offer to extend the short term social visit pass. I told her no need as we will go for our honeymoon on 19 July n that is the day her short term visit pass will expire. According to her, if ica need any document they will give a 2 weeks timeframe to submit the necessary document. I also ask her why the officer at the service counter who was also wearing the ica uniform told me ica is requesting some document, she told me maybe she mistaken. Frankly I m very confused. Tmr will be the 9 weeks already. Any bro can advise on this matter

Also I read on some post that if we leave sg during the application process the application is due to failed 100%.I think for a new couple to travel for honeymoon after marriage is very normal. I called the ica officer n they told me its fine to travel n a different white card does not matter.

I would hold onto your original DE card anyway because the number on it is linked to your application. Good luck.

I mentioned this before .. your LTVP is tied down with the DE card, and no DE Card, no LTVP Application.

And yes, somebody said ICA should be given a kick in their backside for some bug in their system, but .. hey ..let's just follow what works - so, when you depart the country, the DE number disappears and then your LTVP goes into a Limbo .. well, that's my deduction from seeing 100% failure of those who left while LTVP was in progress, vs a better chance of asking for additional documents etc, for those who stayed back

I suspect, when the LTVP reaches the second vetting round, if there is no DE valid, then it gets junked ...

I maybe wrong though .. yes, ICA front office staff will say you can travel ..

Hi all bros, my wife ltvp had been approved in principle after 10 long weeks. Just want to clear all doubts it's possible to travel when ltvp is pending. We left the country twice during the application n now I m currently in Hua Hin Thailand posting this. Whatever it is, I thank all brothers for the advise given.
