If you are applying for an entry visa for business visit (attending business negotiations or discussions), the local contact must be acting on behalf of the Singapore-registered business entity. LOIs issued by your Embassy can also be accepted, if you are unable to secure an LOI from a local contact to support your visa application for social and business visits.
A fee of EUR 20/- per visa will be charged, and the payment is required at the time of submission. The fee is not refundable. Please contact the Embassy by email (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) for the payment method.
The application can be submitted by the following methods:
The processing of visa applications would take approximately 1-2 weeks after the date of receipt of complete applications. Some applications may take longer if more verification of information is required by immigration authorities in Singapore. Applicants should therefore give allowance for time taken to process (and possible postal delay) when setting their intended dates of departure. There is no express facility to expedite the visa application process.
The visa will be issued electronically.
