As required by law, foreign mothers that wish to deliver in Singapore need to apply for a special long term visit pass – the maternity visa – with the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA).
Mothers obtain a maternity visa because:
1. It is required by the ICA
2. They appreciate the flexibility that comes with the visa’s multiple-journey feature
3. It allows them to stay on in Singapore after their delivery and fully recover before returning home
The maternity visa requires a substantial amount of preparation, where mothers must find a local sponsor, produce supporting documents and place a security deposit for submission to the ICA. As a result, many mothers – especially those without support in Singapore – find themselves in difficult situations that require them to go down to ICA often, when instead they should be resting in preparation for their delivery.
