Other Prevailing Entry Requirements
9 The possession of a valid visa alone does not guarantee entry into Singapore. The grant of an immigration pass and the duration of stay are determined by the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers at the point of entry at Singapore checkpoints. The period of stay granted is shown on the visit pass endorsement given on your passport and is not tied to the validity of your visa. Each case is considered on its own merit, and includes, but is not limited to, fulfilling the normal entry requirements, such as having a valid passport with at least 6 months validity, confirmed return/onward tickets, sufficient funds for the period of stay in Singapore and entry facilities – including visas – to their onward destination.
