CONSULATE OF THE REPUBLIC OF SINGAPORE GUIDELINES FOR APPLICATION OF VISA FOR BANGLADESHI NATIONALS
The Consulate of the Republic of Singapore in Dhaka processes visa applications for Bangladeshi Nationals and other foreigners who require a social visa to enter Singapore.
Visitors holding ordinary Bangladeshi passports will need to apply for an entry visa prior to their arrival in Singapore. Holders of Bangladeshi Diplomatic and Official passports are exempted from visa requirements. For other nationals, please visit www.ica.gov.sg for details.
Each application for a visa will be considered on its own merits.
A Singapore visa is not an immigration pass. It is a pre-entry permission for the holder of a valid Singapore visa to travel to, and seek entry, into Singapore. The grant of an immigration pass will be determined by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers at the point of entry. Possession of a valid visa alone does not guarantee entry into Singapore.
A holder of a valid Singapore visa who is found suitable for entry into Singapore will be issued with an immigration pass to enter and remain in Singapore. You are advised to check your passport for the arrival visit pass endorsement when in Singapore and take note of the period of stay granted before leaving the checkpoint. The period of stay granted is shown on the visit pass endorsement given on your passport and it is not tied to the validity of your visa.
- Bangladesh Taka equivalent SGD$30/- per Applicant excluding Agent’s Fee.
- The processing time for complete visa applications is at least 5 working days (excluding the day of submission). Those who submit incomplete applications or documents may face delays. Some applications may take longer to process, especially during peak periods.
