A representative of the Embassy of Singapore in Washington, D.C. states that the length of a visa which the Singaporean authorities issue to the foreign spouse of a national of Singapore, who has applied for permanent residence status, depends on the nationality of the passport held by the spouse (Embassy of Singapore 24 May 1991). The same representative adds that the Embassy of Singapore in Washington, D.C. may not determine the length of such a visa for a national of Sri Lanka since the Immigration Department of Singapore is in charge of immigration affairs.

 Additional and/or corroborating information on the subject is currently unavailable to the IRBDC.
