Pre-Marriage Long-Term Visit Pass Assessment (PMLA)

Singapore Citizen Non-Resident (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 the applicant is assessed to be eligible for an Long Term Visit Pass (LTVP), he or she will be issued a Letter of LTVP Eligibility (LLE) that is valid for one year. The applicant can then use this LLE in his or her LTVP application, after their marriage.

Failing to complete a PMLA may lead to a longer processing time when the applicant does submit a post-marriage LTVP application.
