So move to China for a few years: Demonstrate the depth of your marriage.Thrael wrote:I'm quite terrified that after we ROM, he'll be unable to get a student pass OR a LTVP, as immigration has been quite stringent lately.
I did seriously consider the moving to China bit, much to my parents’ chagrin.. but I’m an only child and unless I can export both my parents with me, they’d be quite…distressed (putting it mildly). Also, financially it makes more sense to be here, in China, he would be working in his family's business (not a successful one) and I would not be able to work or at least not earn as much as I can here. Also I don’t like him doing business in China, with all the drinking/’connection’ building it requires. ?JR8 wrote: So move to China for a few years: Demonstrate the depth of your marriage.
A PRC going straight from ROMing to SG-PR? I expect they're going to make any such applicant hold off for a few years to demonstrate that it's more than just a marriage of convenience.
Forget the cost of a wedding. The joy of the occasion comes from those you invite, and how you personalise it for you and your guests. If you can only afford $250, don't get suckered into trying to lay on a $10k affair, based upon how you perceive 'other's expectations'. Some of the best and most memorable weddings I've been to have been the simplest - ironic eh? - Just a dozen friends/family down at the beach, with a licensed solemniser, some flowers, and a BBQ to follow... that kind of thing...
Yes we won’t be spending beyond our means even when we do have our formal wedding (in both countries omg). It’s so sweet of yall to worry about that! Thanks!sundaymorningstaple wrote:The biggest hurdle you are going to face it the fact that when you ROM he will have to sign a document stating that by marrying a Singaporean, it will not automatically make him eligible for PR. (I know that is not what we are talking about at the moment, but you should be made aware of this well in advance).
You will need to be able to act as your spouses' guarantor/sponsor. For this you will be required to produce your last three years tax assessments showing an income estimated currently to be in the neighbourhood of $3K~3.5K /month. If below 3K it is highly doubtful whether you will be able to sponsor him for an LTVP. I don't want to be a wet mop but at the moment your stats don't look positive for obtaining the LTVP.
Also, while not any of my business, you should think about a wedding that is affordable and not what is fashionable. Your salary levels are not high and there is no sense in saddling yourself with a couple of years of misery trying to pay off wedding costs.
Poor you, born with baggage for life.Thrael wrote:I did seriously consider the moving to China bit, much to my parents’ chagrin.. but I’m an only child and unless I can export both my parents with me, they’d be quite…distressed (putting it mildly).
