If you would like to stay in Singapore for a longer period, you may apply here to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) upon your arrival.

What documents are required to enter Singapore?

It is best to consult your local consular office for the latest information with regard to coming into Singapore. If you do require a visa, visit the Singaporean Immigration & Checkpoints Authority here to see all the proper documents required.

You should have a valid passport with at least six months validity, onward or return tickets, onward facilities (such as visas or entry permits) to your next destination, and sufficient funds for your stay in Singapore.

What are the minimum requirements for visitors staying in Singapore?

Should you require a visa, please refer to ICA’s website for application procedures.

As with most countries, do note that the possession of a visa does not entitle a visitor to enter Singapore automatically. Visitors must also meet entry requirements such as holding a valid passport, possession of sufficient funds for the period of stay in Singapore and confirmed onward or return air tickets. The grant of a visit pass to a visitor is determined by the ICA Officers at the Singapore checkpoints and each case is considered on its own merits.

How do I apply for a visa?

If you require a visa to enter Singapore, please follow the proper procedures in the Immigration Checkpoints & Authority’s website here.

Who do I contact if I need an Official Letter of Invitation for my visa?

If necessary, we can send you an Official Letter of Invitation after you register, which you should include in your application and bring to your visa interview. To request your letter of invitation after registering for this event, please contact:
