As per instruction in my certificate, I am entitled to apply for a Long Term Visa Pass (up to 12 months) for me to stay in Singapore long enough to find work.
Immigration and Customs AuthoritySo today, I went to Immigration and Customs Authority to apply for an LTVP. Pre-warned by my aunt who have worked in SG for more than 20 years, there are a lot of people at ICA so I better leave the house early. But when I arrived, there is not much people unlike in the Philippine Government Agencies.
The small crowd is due to the efficient system of employing computers for applications. So I was directed to an e-ICA kiosk of which, there’s an ICA employee assisting users of what to do. After a few clicks, I found myself answering the questionnaire for the LTVP application. Then my photo was scanned. Afterwhich I was asked to pay 30SGD through credit card in the same kiosk. And I was done. The whole process didn’t even last for 20 minutes.
I just love their system. It was a breeze. No wonder Singapore is a first world country. The employees know what to do or what to advice enquiries. They employ technology for the public’s convenience. Two thumbs up for ICA. I’m impressed!
I ask for your prayers. I hope to get my LTVP approved and released ASAP.
