1. Every application for a visa, including the duration of the visa granted, will be considered on its own merits and subject to approval.
2. The visa issued is normally dated on the day when you submit the application and the validity of the visa cannot be changed once issued. Please do not submit the application too early before your planned trip to Singapore. If the validity of the visa has lapsed, the applicant will need to submit a fresh application. Applicants are advised to submit the applications 1 to 2 weeks prior to the departure and to check the visa date of issue and the validity period carefully upon receiving the visa.
3. Possession of a visa does not guarantee entry into Singapore. The granting of entry into Singapore is determined by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers at the point of entry. Visitors must meet entry requirements such as holding a passport with more than 6 months validity, sufficient funds for the period of stay in Singapore and confirmed onward/return air ticket.
4. The period of stay in Singapore will be decided by the ICA officer at the point of entry in Singapore. Applicants are advised to check their passports for the arrival endorsement and take note of the duration of stay given.
