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.
