SINGAPORE: The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) will help facilitate the continued stay of foreign spouses who are widowed with children in Singapore.
This is done through the renewal of the the Long Term Visit Pass or Long Term Visit Pass Plus (LTVP+).
The LTVP+ was introduced last year to help Singaporean families with foreign spouses.
Minister in Prime Minister’s Office Grace Fu said in Parliament: "This is to enable them to care for and raise their Singaporean children here. Help is available to those who face financial hardship and the family may also be referred to a family service centre which will help them to adjust and tide over this difficult period."
