Letter of Consent for ICA-issued LTVP/LTVP+ holders

You can apply for a Letter of Consent to work in Singapore if you are an eligible LTVP/LTVP+ holder who is the spouse or unmarried child of a Singaporean or permanent resident.

Who is eligible

To be eligible for a Letter of Consent, you need to be one of the following:

  • An LTVP/LTVP+ holder who is married to a Singaporean or PR.
  • An unmarried child (under 21 years old) of a Singaporean or PR, who holds an LTVP.

NOTE: If you are a Dependant’s Pass holder seeking employment in Singapore, you will need to apply for a Work Permit, S Pass or Employment Pass instead.

The LTVP/LTVP+ has to be valid for at least 3 months, and you must have a job offer from a Singapore employer.

NOTE: You are not allowed to work in objectionable occupations such as a dance hostess.

What is the duration

The duration granted for the pass is based on the earlier of these:

  • What the employer indicated in the LOC application.
  • The expiry date of the LTVP/LTVP+.

The LOC stops being valid when:

  • The LTVP/LTVP+ is cancelled or expires.
  • You are no longer employed by the company. The employer still needs to cancel the LOC.

Is the Letter of Consent renewable


When to renew

For LTVP or LTVP+ holders, you can apply to renew up to 6 months before the LOC expires. Before applying, check that the LTVP or LTVP+ is valid for at least 3 months. If it is not, the pass holder needs to go to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) to renew the LTVP or LTVP+.
