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).

SC-NR couples are 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.
