The Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) is an immigration pass issued by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) of Singapore. It allows certain foreign individuals to stay in Singapore for an extended period to visit family members, accompany a work pass holder, or seek medical treatment.

Here are some key points about the Long-Term Visit Pass:

Eligibility: The LTVP is typically available to spouses and unmarried children (below 21 years old) of Singapore citizens, permanent residents, and certain categories of work pass holders, such as Employment Pass or S Pass holders. It may also be available to common-law spouses, stepchildren, or handicapped children of eligible residents.

Duration: The LTVP is usually granted for a longer duration compared to standard visit passes. The duration can vary depending on factors such as the sponsor’s immigration status and the purpose of the visit. LTVP holders may be granted multiple-entry privileges, allowing them to enter and exit Singapore multiple times within the validity period of the pass.

Privileges: LTVP holders may be eligible for certain privileges, such as the ability to work in Singapore with a Letter of Consent (LOC) issued by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM). However, the privileges and restrictions associated with the LTVP may vary depending on the individual’s circumstances and the type of LTVP granted.

Application Process: The application for an LTVP is typically initiated by the sponsor (e.g., the Singapore citizen or permanent resident) on behalf of the applicant. The sponsor must meet certain eligibility criteria and provide supporting documents, such as proof of relationship or marriage certificate. The application is submitted to the ICA for processing.

Renewal and Extension: LTVP holders may be eligible to renew or extend their passes, subject to meeting certain criteria and providing relevant documentation. The renewal or extension process typically involves submitting a new application to the ICA before the current LTVP expires.
