PR applying for visa for foreign wife

Postby vcasual » Sat, 25 Jan 2014 9:13 pm

A bit of background information: I'm a PR and recently got married. My wife is a foreigner who is working overseas. She will be moving here next month and will be still be employed by her overseas based company from Singapore (working from home). I'm confused about a few things:

1) Which visa is she eligible for (I always assumed it was a Dependancy Pass)?
2) Is there a visa type where she can work (I understand that on a LTVP, she won't be able to work)?
3) If #2 is a no, then what additional documents/applications are required?
4) Any issues if her overseas company is not registered in Singapore?

Thanks for your help!

Yeah this is a nasty gap. LTVP for PR only - no DP available. I've never liked this either and it seems incredibly unfair to me that a employment pass holder can get a DP for his wife and then an LOC but the wife of a PR is not permitted to work unless she satisfied the criteria for a P1/P2 on her own merits. Just another reason PR sucks.

Honestly - if there's no entity here and she's working from home... and you can get an LTVP well ....

Otherwise you're looking at the self employed start a company to get a work permit case.
