The information on this page is a guide for Singapore Citizen – Non-Resident (SC-NR) couples wanting to submit a Pre-Marriage LTVP Assessment (PMLA).

Submit Online Pre-Marriage Long-Term Visit Pass Assessment (PMLA)

SC-NR couples are strongly encouraged to submit a PMLA before getting married. The PMLA provides greater clarity on whether the intended non-resident spouse may qualify for long-term stay in Singapore.

If you are assessed to be eligible for an LTVP, you will be issued a Letter of LTVP Eligibility (LLE) that is valid for one year. You can then use this LLE in your application, after your marriage.

Failing to complete a PMLA may lead to a longer processing time when you do submit a post-marriage LTVP application.

You can refer to the advisory notes to learn more about submitting a PMLA. The notes are available in the following languages: English, Chinese, Tamil, Malay, Thai and Vietnamese.

Applying for LTVP after marriage

If you submitted a Pre-Marriage Long-Term Visit Pass Application (PMLA) before applying for your LTVP, it may take up to six weeks to process your LTVP application.

If you did not submit a PMLA, the LTVP processing time may take up to six months.
