How can I extend my stay in Singapore?


A short-term visit pass (STVP), generally in the form of an electronic visit pass or e-Pass, is issued at the point of entry to visitors who are eligible for entry and short-term stay in Singapore as a tourist; for social visit, or medical treatment. To check the validity of your STVP, you may use the visit pass validity tool or the e-Pass enquiry portal.


Visitors who need to extend their STVP may apply for an extension of stay by using the e-Service, seven days before their STVP expires. This facility is only applicable to STVPs issued by ICA and can be used to apply for an extension of stay for 30 days or up to 89 days. For more information, please refer to ICA’s website here
