Entry & Visa Requirements for Foreigners Travelling to Singapore

All foreign visitors must ensure that they meet or possess the entry requirements and visa requirements of the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) of Singapore. 

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 ICA officers at the point of entry. Possession of a valid visa alone does not guarantee entry into Singapore.

If you are granted entry, you will receive a Visit Pass which will indicate the period of stay granted. This is not tied to the validity of your visa.

The Singapore High Commission accepts visa applications for tourism or business purposes only.

To check if you need an entry visa, please visit ICA website here


We are currently experiencing a high volume of applications. If you are unable to secure an appointment, please continue to look out for the next available time slots. For further queries, you may call us at +44 20 7235 8315.
