Visa policy map
Countries/Regions which require a visa for entry into Singapore
If your travel document is issued by one of the countries or regions below, you will need a visa to enter Singapore:
You will also need a visa if you are travelling on:
▪ A Palestinian Authority passport
▪ A temporary passport issued by the United Arab Emirates
▪ Refugee travel documents issued by a Middle East country. These travel documents are subject to assessment of recognition for entry into 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. 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.
Visa-Free Transit Facility
Nationals of the Commonwealth of Independent States, Georgia, India, The People's Republic of China (PRC), Turkmenistan and Ukraine may be eligible for the Visa-Free Transit Facility (VFTF).
