Foreign Spouses – New Measures To Help Prospective Singaporeans with Foreign Spouses
ICA to introduce new measures to help prospective Singaporean-Foreigner couples better plan for the future
The measures will also help prospective spouses, particularly those who may not have had the benefit of a long relationship, to have sufficient pertinent information about each other before their marriage. ICA will provide greater clarity on whether the foreign spouse can qualify for long term stay in Singapore, based on the circumstances of the couple at the time of application.The Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) will also introduce new programmes to better support such cross-cultural marriages and the foreign spouses who qualify for long term stay to adjust to Singapore.
Foreigners who marry SCs can reside in Singapore if they have a valid work pass or are granted the relevant immigration passes such as the Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP).
