hi everyone!..im glad i found this site which is very helpful. coz i got a lot of questions regarding my ltvp...here is my situation...i went here last sept. 28, 2013..after 2week my husband a singapore citizen applied for me ltvp tru the counter..we waited for more than 2mos. wen i checked the result was withdrawn..then we went to ica last dec. 26, 2013 asked how come the result was withdrawn and we didnt withdraw my application..the officer told us that they sent a letter for some documents needed but we told them we didnt receive any letter from them..my husband ask him what documents they need but he couldnt tell us what is it coz its only in the letter where stated...then the officer advice us to apply again new application tru online since counter application will take long for about 2-3months..because of the holidays and my husband was so busy at his work..he just applied my ltvp application today jan. 9,2013..the application was successfully submitted and it was stated there if we would like to extend my social visa and we didnt extend because i already stayed more than 3 mos here in singapore and the office gave me a final date to leave which is on jan. 16, 2013..and i will leave on jan. 15, 2013..here's my question..

1. is there a problem with my application as i only have 7days validity of visa from the date of my application to final date to leave?..because i just read in forum that must be 10days or more validity

2. tru our online application they didnt ask for some documents..when we need to submit our documents?

hoping u can give some advice guys..thank u in advance

1. Should be no problem - in fact you can apply for an LTVP while abroad and having no SVP at all.
2. They will send you a letter asking for those documents. Make sure they have the correct postal address (of your husband) and he checks the mailbox daily.

exactly. Your online application is linked to your DE card. Additionally, you need to submit those documents in person. They ask for a photocopy of your passport and expect to see the original in person so you definitely need to be present.

and this was hashed and re-hashed many times over. ..

when you go online, no DE Card, you cannot proceed. You can try to work the system by keying in an old DE card, but when you query status etc, it will say "APPLICATION NOT FOUND" ..

For over the counter, they still ask for the DE Card, though I don't know if they will take a don't-have for an answer

PS: ICA don't like submissions over the counter, unless you have a pressing need to do it .. like being asked by ICA to do so .. that's what I know ..

whoops, let me clarify jic since I posted a little hastily. I meant you need to be in person to submit the documents the OP asked about in question 2, as in the ones ICA asks to see in the IPA letter. I was just adding that to the discussion that you should not be out of the country during this process. I agree that they want you to apply online.
