Singapore Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) – Part 2

In our previous article on the Singapore Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP), we explored the details of LTVP applications through the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). This time, we move forward with Part 2 of our LTVP journey, focusing on the LTVP issued by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM). The LTVP in Singapore is also relevant for foreigners who hold a Work Pass and wish to have their certain immediate family members stay together during their stay in Singapore.

LTVP Fees and Processing Time

A non-refundable processing fee of S$105 is applicable for each application. Additional fees of S$225 (for each pass) and S$30 (for each multiple journey visa, if applicable) will apply upon collection if the LTVP application is granted in-principle approval. The processing time for LTVP applications is generally around 3 to 8 weeks, provided all required documents are submitted and in order.

Application Process


LTVP (MOM) Renewal

You can apply to renew a LTVP up to 6 months before it expires. You must apply before the expiry date. Check when you can start renewing.

For dependants of Employment Pass (Sponsorship) and EntrePass holders, you can start applying to renew 3 months before the pass expires.

The duration is tied to the main pass holder’s pass or up to the duration requested, whichever is shorter.

Renew using EP eService: within 3 weeks for most cases.

For dependants of Employment Pass (Sponsorship) and EntrePass holders: within 8 weeks for most cases.

Important Note:
  • Remember to apply for renewal early. Renewing early does not mean that you will lose the remaining days in your current pass. The duration of the renewed pass will start when the current pass expires.
  • If you miss the deadline, you need to apply for a new pass.
  • You need to apply for renewal using the renewal application form for dependants of Employment Pass (Sponsorship) and EntrePass holders.
