Dependent Pass in process, apply Tourist Visa?

Dear friends,

I'm happy and excited to start a new life, moving to Singapore next month. However, my wife's Dependent Pass seems to be taking longer than expected. Would it be okay to apply for a tourist visa on parallel? Would it affect the outcome of the the DP?

thanks a lot!

Congrats, it won’t have an impact. Most cases EP and S pass holders (Basic monthly salary must have $5000 or above) bring their spouses on visit pass, while DP application still pending.

That's a relief, thank you surya2k!

Update: DP got approved in 2 days, so this is a moot question now. :)
But thank you, Surya2k!

For your information: Salary threshold to get DP for direct family members (spouse, kids) will increase to S$6000/month from January 2018, while the one for other dependents (e.g. parents) remains at S$10000/month.
