Marrying Foreigner from Malaysia

Postby catuser » Tue, 26 Nov 2013 1:22 pm

Hi everyone, I have some question to ask.
I'm Indonesian-Chinese who's currently a Singapore PR.
I planning to do my ROM here at Singapore.
My GF is a malaysian who's currently being blacklisted for some reason after been visiting Singapore couple of times.
Is it possible for me to do the ROM here? or any suggestion?
Thank you very much.

And what is that reason? We need to know to be able to understand your situation and give suitable advice.

That's the keyword right there.

I'm not 100% sure but given she can't even enter the country, no.

I'm not sure as the ICA din't give a clear reason.
I think is because she has been visiting Singapore too often.

Then the next question is: how long ago was she blacklisted? I believe if the reason is too frequent visits, it may expire after some time.

I don't think you can do ROM here without bringing her back to SG first. Visiting Singapore couple of times is not illegal. Perhaps there are more reasons that you'd like to share? Malaysian always considered as family to Singapore, so i doubt the ICA blacklist someone from Malaysia without valid reason.

Nevertheless, I still hope you're wrong, SMS.

OP, ICA won't use terms like "blacklisted" in their correspondence. Perhaps you could share exactly what they communicated to you or your girlfriend, as in, verbatim. I think there will be at least a few clues there.

The Yanks are the military, the Brits their diplomats.

So, I've done my bit. All you have to do is moderate his subsequent ire :lol:

Indonesian marry Malaysian.

Go marry in Malaysia.
otherwise... the marriage is NOT RECOGNISED by both KBRI and KDN Malaysia.

If she was working here before... then that is reasons MOM banned her. Ask her frankly. My wife can enter ..but cannot apply marriage at ROMM due to she is a civil servant.
Just a Singaporean who had to run back from Kent.

Who said she was a civil servant. As for the ban, ROMing in Singapore will NOT be disallowed, even if she work here on a work permit and didn't get prior permission from MOM to marry. What will happen is she will be allowed to ROM and then the ICA will not give her a DP. Therefore either forcing them to live apart even though they are legally married OR the PR holder can go to her country to live.

Even if she worked here before on a work permit, she does not need permission to marry a PR. She only needs permission to marry a citizen if she held a WP. Maybe you ought to check up on your facts. You may have been away for too long.
