Hi Sir,

It is of great luck to chance upon your blog. My Thai GF and I are planning to settle down in Singapore (been dating for 1.2years) but it seems like there is a lot of red tapes for us to permanently settle down in Singapore. (chances for PR, etc...) She is a university grad from Kasertsart University and has expectation of job prospects in Singapore.

Do you have any advise on the PR application process and how each individual is being assessed?

Cheers bro.

Hi Bryan,

Since she has a degree, she can start by getting a job here. After that she can try to apply for PR by her own merit. But it might be tough, nowadays government seems to be cutting back on such PR approvals.

The other way is get married, and then you apply for her as her sponsor. I have quite a few visitors who had success this way.

Process-wise, can check out the link https://www.ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid=151, just need to submit her documents depending on which group she fall under.

As to how they assess, they don't disclose it but from experience I can tell you family-type applications stand a higher chance these days. Even EP holder with high salary doesn't mean they will have better chance.

Hi Bro,

How are you doing? Hope you are doing well!

Thanks for your reply. We are planning to get settled down in Singapore soon and hopefully she could get a internal transfer in her current company to Singapore (Huge MNC). We had passed the pre-marriage LTVP assessment but they had clearly stated this does not contribute to any merit during our application except only for faster processing time, how true is this? We are just worried that ICA may reject her application for LTVP.

Moreover how long does it take for foreign spouse to complete marriage registration in Singapore?

Cheers.

Bryan

Hi Bryan,

I'm doing fine, thanks!

Don't worry about it, since they approved the pre-marriage assessment, I don't see why they should reject the LTVP application.

I think fastest is around 3-4 weeks, you need 21 days for the notice, after that you can get married and receive the marriage certificate. Fastest is to marry outside of ROM, find a venue, find a solemnizer, that's about it.

Hi

My wife is currently pregnant (we just found out a week ago)! so we're kind of concern with the potential fees of delivering our kid in SG. Just wondering if you've an estimation of the fees here? Eg. 10k?

Thanks
Dave

Hi Dave,

What is your wife's residential status? If she is PR then the cost will be mostly halved.

But if she is a foreigner, then there is no subsidy so expect to pay full for everything.

For my wife's case as she is PR, the cost was ok as most of it was subsidized.

By the way you can check out these two links for rough idea:

C-section: https://www.moh.gov.sg/content/moh_web/home/costs_and_financing/hospital-charges/Total-Hospital-Bills-By-condition-procedure/delivery_caesareansection.html

Normal delivery: https://www.moh.gov.sg/content/moh_web/home/costs_and_financing/hospital-charges/Total-Hospital-Bills-By-condition-procedure/delivery_normal.html

My wife has heart problems so her case was a bit more complicated, end up she stay longer, but if your wife is healthy and don't need to stay in the hospital too long, then cost should be lower.

Mostly is the consultation and scan part because specialist is quite pricy.

Good day Bro,

Need some advise from here. currently i am abit lost of what to do due to my thai gf pregnant. should i apply for her pre marriage LTVP first? or bring her over to sg for ROM?

hope to hear from you soon! thanks alot!

marrythaigirlsingapore said...

Hi,

Apply for the pre-marriage LTVP first. If ROM first later might be difficult to get LTVP.

I think her passport is in english and thai, so no need to translate.

Hi all.. thanks for all the info here. Just to share a little n also to enquire.. im a malaysian chinese ex wp holder married to an sc with mom's approval on the 2nd of dec 2016. On 6th Dec 2016 My husband applied for ltvp and also booked a appointment for pr application on 15th May 2017. I finally got my ltvp ipa yesterday after 4 months of waiting as we did not go through PMLA. There's a few things I'd like to ask here.
- as I'm now 33 weeks pregnant do I still need a medical report or just a letter from the gynae stating my edd?
- will I be able to get ltvp+?
- my svp is expiring soon and i need to heat to ica to renew it anyway. Is it possible to try for a walk in appointment to complete the formalities on the same day as the doctor advice against moving around too much during this last stage of pregnancy?
- will my chances of getting pr be affected since I'm heavily pregnant and unemployed during the time of application?
Ty all in advance for willing to shed some light on this.

Hi Sir

I am SC and im planning to get married to WP holder. I understand we need to seek MOM's approval before marriage.

Currently, im working as a part-time driver (daily paid job) with no cpf contribution. I started only last month. My partner is WP in marine sector.

They also requested 6 months payslip from my previous employer. Is it okay just to submit my 6months cpf contribution as i misplaced my pay slips?

Will my marriage application be rejected because of my employment?

Thank you.

Hi,

Better call MOM and check with them if you are not sure because I don't have information on marriage approval.

Best of luck!
