With the LTVP (MOM) , foreigners with work passes can bring in additional family members to stay in Singapore. Additionally, Singapore citizens and Permanent Residents (PRs) can also sponsor LTVP (ICA) for their family members.

The Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) application is specifically designed for individuals who want to stay in Singapore for a longer duration with their direct family members without the inconvenience of applying for a new visa every few months.

If you’re considering applying for an LTVP in Singapore, our article will guide you through the eligibility criteria, application process, and LTVP renewal procedure. Furthermore, we will explore the benefits of LTVP Plus (LTVP+), an enhanced version of the pass that offers even more perks. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to bring your loved ones to Singapore for a long-term visit!

Different Types of Long-Term Visit Passes in Singapore

If you’re planning a long-term stay in Singapore, you may need to apply for a Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP). There are two types of LTVPs that you can apply for, each issued by a different authority:

This pass is essentially an extension of an existing Short-Term Visit Pass for family members of Singapore citizens and Permanent Residents (PRs). It is suitable for foreign visitors who wish to stay in Singapore for more than the 30 days allowed by a Short-Term Visit Pass.

This pass is intended for the family members of foreign employees who are not eligible for a Dependant’s Pass but want to live with their loved ones in Singapore.

What is LTVP+?

The Long-Term Visit Pass-Plus (LTVP+) scheme was introduced to assist Singaporean families with foreign spouses. This new scheme offers foreign spouses of Singapore citizens who qualify a longer period of residency, providing them with greater certainty of stay. The LTVP+ also offers a range of benefits, including access to healthcare and employment opportunities.

Couples with at least one Singaporean child from their marriage are eligible to apply for the LTVP+. For those without a Singapore Citizen child, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) will consider other factors, such as the duration of marriage, and generally look more favourably upon those who have been married for at least 3 years.

LTVP+ holders will be eligible for a longer period of residency in Singapore, with the LTVP+ being valid for 3 years in the first instance and for up to 5 years for each subsequent renewal. Additionally, LTVP+ holders will receive healthcare subsidies for inpatient services at restructured hospitals, which are set at a level close to that for Permanent Residents.

Furthermore, LTVP+ holders seeking work in Singapore will find it easier to do so. Prospective employers of LTVP+ holders can apply to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) for a Letter of Consent (LOC) on their behalf, instead of an Employment/S Pass or Work Permit.

Eligibility Criteria for Applying for a Long-Term Visit Pass (ICA) in Singapore

To be eligible for a Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) issued by the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) , the requirements vary depending on the type of pass you are applying for. Here are the criteria for applying for an LTVP with ICA:

Here are the steps for applying Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) at the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) in Singapore:

  • Gather all the required documents for the LTVP application. The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website contains detailed information regarding the specific documents required for each type of application.
  • Go to the ICA website and access the LTVP e-Service. Fill in the application form and upload all the required documents. You will also need to pay the application fee online.

Note: LTVP application by foreign spouse of Singapore citizen who did not complete the Pre-Marriage Long-Term Visit Pass Assessment (PMLA) will take longer, up to 6 months to be processed.

  • If your LTVP application is approved, you will receive the email notification.
  • Upon in-principle approval of the Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) application, you can enquire the application status and download the term and conditions for issuance of LTVP and medical report form (for those who are required to undergo a medical check-up). The applicant must upload the completed forms within 30 days from the in-principle approval date. Otherwise, the application will be considered withdrawn.
  • Once the uploaded document(s) are verified by ICA, the applicant will be notified via email to make payment using the  e-Service . Payment of S$60 for applicant’s LTVP and S$30 for a Multiple Journey Visa (if applicable) must be made within 30 days upon receiving the email notification, otherwise the approval will be withdrawn.
  • Once the payment has been made, the applicant will be informed if he/she is required to visit ICA Building physically for the issuance of LTVP. If applicant is required to visit ICA Building, the applicant can download the In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter which is valid for three months from date of issue. With effect from 27 February 2023, a digital Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) will be issued in place of a physical LTVP card.

Here are the steps for applying Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) at the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) in Singapore:

  • Gather the necessary documents for the application. Depending on the family member you are applying for, you may also be required to submit additional documents. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) website contains detailed information regarding the specific documents required for each type of application.
  • Your Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) application can be submitted online via myMOM portal by your employer or Employment Agency (EA). It is essential to complete all mandatory fields and provide the relevant supporting documents. Additionally, an application fee of S$105 must be paid before submitting the application.
  • The processing time for Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) application varies and can take up to 8 weeks. You can check the status of your application on the MOM website.
  • If your application is approved, you will receive the in-principle approval (IPA) letter via email. The applicant must enter to Singapore within 6 months (for EP holder) or 2 months (for S Pass holder) from the date of approval.
  • An email notification letter will be sent to you, which will remain valid for 1 month. This notification will contain instructions on completing the card registration process, which includes paying the approval fees of S$225 for each pass, and S$30 for a multiple journey visa (if applicable). The card registration formalities comprise undergoing a medical check-up, registering fingerprints, and having your photo taken.
  • After completing the registration process and your documents are verified, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will dispatch the card to the provided address within 5 working days.

Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) Renewal

To renew an LTVP issued by the ICA , you need to apply at least 2 months before your current LTVP expires. This is to ensure that your application can be processed and approved before your current pass expires. You can apply for renewal online through the ICA’s e-Service portal.

If your LTVP is issued by the MOM , you can apply for renewal up to 6 months before it expires. It is recommended that you start the renewal process early to allow for any delays in processing. Your employer or EA can apply for renewal through the EP Online.

It is important to note that renewals are not guaranteed. You will still need to meet the eligibility criteria and provide all the necessary documents for evaluation.

Singapore extends multiple-journey visas with 10-year validity to Chinese travelers

Singapore extends multiple-journey visas with 10-year validity to Chinese travelers

Share this article

IMPACT – MEDIUM

What is the change? Beginning June 1, Singapore will extend multiple-journey visas valid for 10 years to nationals of the People’s Republic of China.

What does the change mean? Chinese nationals who have previously visited Singapore and whose visa applications are supported by relevant Singaporean agencies will automatically be granted the 10-year visas, allowing them to make repeat trips to Singapore without having to renew their visas as often.

  • Implementation time frame: June 1.
  • Visas/permits affected: Multiple-journey visas (MJVs).
  • Who is affected: Nationals of the People’s Republic of China and their dependents.
  • Impact on processing times: The longer visa validity period will eliminate the need to reapply for visas for each visit.
  • Business impact: The MJVs will facilitate business travel, especially for those making frequent trips.
  • Next steps: Eligible applicants do not need to apply separately for the visas; those who qualify will automatically be granted an MJV.

Background: Chinese nationals applying for a visa will be considered for the 10-year MJVs if they have visited Singapore in the past. The same visas will be extended to the main applicant’s spouse and children below the age of 21. The application process and government fees are unchanged. MJV holders will also have faster border processing by being able to use automated immigration clearance service at Singapore’s airports.

BAL Analysis: The longer validity will benefit frequent business travelers from China. However, they are reminded that while the MJV allows repeat entry during the validity period, it does not lengthen the permitted duration of each stay, which generally ranges from 14 to 30 days depending on the discretion of the immigration officer.

Visa Requirements

A Singapore visa is not an immigration pass. It is a pre-entry permission for the holder of a valid Singapore visa to travel to, and seek entry, into Singapore. The grant of an immigration pass will be determined by the ICA officers at the point of entry. Possession of a valid visa alone does not guarantee entry into Singapore.

The period of stay granted is shown on the visit pass endorsement given on your passport and it is not tied to the validity of your visa.

Check if you need Entry Visa

If your travel document* is issued by one of the countries or regions below, you will need a visa to enter Singapore. Click on individual countries or regions below to find out about the general requirements.

NOTE: All non-conventional travel documents, such as Titre de Voyages (TDV), or Certificates of Identities (COI) for stateless persons, will need to seek approval prior to applying for a visa, from the Singapore Overseas Mission in the country you are resident in. If you reside in Australia, please email [email protected] the front cover and biodata page of your travel document as well as evidence of your valid stay in Australia to seek approval from the Singapore High Commission in Canberra.

Countries or regions that do not require an Entry Visa

If your travel document is issued from a country or region that is not listed above (ie Australia), you do not require a visa. However, you must meet the entry requirements below before you can be considered for entry:

  • A confirmed onward or return ticket (where applicable)
  • Evidence that you can enter your next destination (for example, a visa)
  • A  Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate , if applicable

If you are eligible for entry, you will receive a Visit Pass which will indicate the period of stay granted. Check your Visit Pass and the number of days you can stay before leaving the checkpoint.

While in Singapore, on a visit pass, you are not permitted to engage in any business, professional or paid employment activities.

Applying for an Entry Visa in Australia

' class=

My question is now; what are my travel possibilities from Singapore. Given that I am given a 90 day stay there, will I be able to travel out and in of the country every weekend, to do weekend trips to Malaysia , Indonesia etc. - without having any problems with the border control?

Thanks in advance.

' class=

A better option for longer stays would be to extend your pass up to a maximum of 90 day from date arrival which you can do in Singapore. You will need proof of a ticket ( flight ,bus,train,ferry) out when you apply. You then will need to leave Singapore for a minimum of 5 days before you will be allowed back if you choose this option.

Thank you very much for your reply.

Assuming that I apply for - and is granted - a 90 days visit pass. If I choose to take a 3 day trip to Malaysia , I will not be allowed back into Singapore (if I have to leave for minimum 5 days). But if I return after 5 days, I enter on the same 90-days pass? Or do they issue a new visit pass after leaving the country for 5 days or more?

Hello Jacob B,

Have you figure this out yet? I will be doing the same thing next year. Please let me know how are you guys going to do. thank you so much!

My questions are: upon arrival should we buy a decoy ticket (forward ticket) at least 21days days from date entry) or should he show his bali forward ticket on the 20th sept?

And will he be given another 30days in Singapore upon arrival back from bali on the 23rd sept (although we dont plan on him consuming it) its only 3 days out of Singapore, not the 5nights iv read they say on other posts

multiple journey visit pass singapore

This rule applies if you submit an ONLINE application for your social visit pass extention via ICA's "Extend" facility. It means that if you have got your visit pass extended via "Extend", you cannot re-enter Singapore for until 5 days after you have exited the country. If you apply for the social visit pass extension across the Counter at ICA's office in Singapore (instead of online), then this 5 day condition does not apply. One of my relatives who was on holiday had to leave Singapore for a short weekend getaway. When I inquired on phone, ICA informed that in this case, the visitor had to submit a paper application at ICA rather than online application.

Im sorry ill be a bit fussy i dont want anything to go wrong plus i dont want himhaving any brushes with ICA..

After reading ur reply guys, iv come to this understanding, pls correct me if im wrong..

One more thing id like to clarify, is it almost always assured of the 30days pass? Some people are telling me to buy him a decoy ticket exiting Singapore at least fifteen days from arrival, just for show upon initial entrance,.. and then spend the 30days pass.. Im afraid if i do that, say buy him ticket exiting SG on 10th Sept, he will be instead granted to stay only until that day, and not the 30days were hoping.. Should we just show his ticket for bal as a forward ticket? Pls enlighten me

<Kay Jay>

2. "Decoy ticket" - the immigration officers at airport generally do not ask to see return tickets, however, it is not advisable to play with the rules in Singapore, especially in immigration matters. If you are caught breaking rules, you will most likely end up paying dearly. The ticket and the return flight date which you produce to the immigration officer (if asked to do so) must be genuine. You can buy date changeable ticket and extend the return journey dates if you are granted a longer visit pass.

I don't think its a wise idea to plan a trip based on 'hoping' that your wishes come true.

...and when it comes to crucial matters which could affect your trip as a whole, its best to get first hand information, directly from the horses' mouth rather than relying on public opinion, the 'horse' in this case being ICA Singapore. Call ICA and put across your query to them or send them an email. They do reply.
