    Married aIn Singapore

    Post by SAFC73 on 18/07/14, 05:17 am

    Hi Newbee onsite

    Just wondering if anyone has any advice regarding my circumstances.
    I am currently working in Singapore from UK, and my wife to be is back in China.
    We have lived together for 6 years when I was located in Dubai, with no Visa issues. In Singapore things seem far more difficult, I have been informed that in order for her to obtain a long term Visa she will have to be considered my dependent, to qualify for dependency we will have to have Marital status.
    The question I am asking is this the criteria ?, if so it seems very simple as and of course I will very happy. If anyone can confirm or has more details on any other requirements could you let me know.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.

    To answer your question, the best advice I could give would be to contact an expats forum from Singapore. You'll get more help and advice there from those who are experienced in these matters from already residing there.
    Try: http://forum.singaporeexpats.com/forum13.html

    Unfortunately this forum deals with mainly Chinese living in the UK or Australia.

    In many Countries you do have to be married to get long term residency. A Chinese girlfriend for example could not get permanent residency in the UK or Australia. She must be a dependant, i.e. wife. I presume you work there and have a Visa to suit?
    Only dependants could join you to reside, otherwise non dependants can only visit for a short period.
    What you have been told makes sense.

    Cant see the Australian immigration being so slack to hand out PR visas this way My Wife and I applied 309/100 it was very defined regarding application for a PR visa, having a Girlfriend and being given a PR after application for the 9 month marriage rule and no marriage makes no sense at all to me someone is telling a fib with respect

    Totally agree Geoff. Someone is telling porkies. Only dependants would be able to get PR, otherwise they are visitors and have a limited time of stay.

    It's irrelevant anyway because the OP was enquiring about Singapore, not Australia.

    MIL show me the link on Australian Immigration website where it states such is possible.
    I can give you links to the contrary. Your mates are telling fibs.

    Thanks guys , now now ,,no need to argue about something that has nothing to do with my original question.
    I seem to have sorted things out and am clear on what to do now, I wont bore you with the long winded procedure involved, but I do appreciate the feedback, cheers Gents

    Hi again, my original post , was only meant to highlight that as i said ! dont believe everything you read ,and yes Wanneroo i do remember you getting your wifes visa rather quickly,i put that down to ,your wife being of similar age to you (not a large gap ect ) so would seem a genuine relationship, not like me for eg 25 yr gap lol As for Handyal asking for the link for the info that allows this,surprised me , of course there is no link for those situations that allow ppl to get visas in this manner, but the cases i mentioned has happened and not a porky as mentioned, and do you really think i would waste my time posting something that i was not 100% positive about Mil
