Long Term Visit Pass



Long Term Visit Pass


A Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) in Singapore allows foreigners to stay in the country for an extended period for reasons other than work or permanent residency. It is often used by dependents of Employment Pass (EP) or S Pass holders, as well as retirees and individuals with strong ties to Singapore.


Eligibility for an LTVP:


  • Be sponsored by a Singapore Citizen (SC), Permanent Resident (PR), or Employment Pass (EP) or S Pass holder.

  • Meet the minimum income requirements for the sponsor (if applicable).

  • Have valid travel documents and meet health requirements.


Types of LTVPs:


  • LTVP: For spouses, common-law partners, unmarried children below 21, and parents of EP or S Pass holders meeting the minimum income requirement.

  • LTVP+: For spouses of Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents who have been married for at least 3 years or have a Singapore Citizen child. Offers longer validity and multiple entry privileges.

  • LTVP (Dependent's Pass): For spouses and unmarried children below 21 of EntrePass holders.


Application Process:


  • Applications are submitted online through the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) website for sponsors who are EP or S Pass holders.

  • Applications for other categories are submitted through the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website.

  • Processing time is typically 8 weeks, but can be longer in some cases.


Validity and Renewal:


  • LTVPs are typically valid for 5 years, with the option to renew.

  • LTVP+ can be valid for up to 10 years.


Restrictions:


  • LTVP holders are not allowed to work in Singapore without a valid work visa.

  • They are also subject to certain restrictions on studying and owning businesses.
