Singapore citizen - Non-resident (NR) couples are strongly encouraged to complete a Pre-Marriage LTVP Assessment (PMLA) before marriage.
The PMLA is a free online assessment which allows couples to:
- exchange key information with each other before getting married
- find out if the intended NR spouse may qualify for a Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) after marriage; and
- enjoy a shorter processing time when they subsequently submit an LTVP application.
Marriage to a Singapore citizen does not guarantee the NR spouse automatic right of entry into Singapore or approval for long-term stay in Singapore.
A positive PMLA outcome is not an immigration pass, and does not mean that the intended NR
spouse has been approved for an LTVP. The NR spouse should separately apply for an LTVP, after marriage, to be considered for long-term stay in Singapore.
The outcomes of the PMLA and LTVP applications may differ if a couple’s circumstances
change between their PMLA and LTVP applications. Couples should ensure that the information submitted in the PMLA are correct, for a more accurate assessment of their eligibility for LTVP.
