You must present yourself for immigration clearance at your point of entry into Singapore. You must satisfy the following basic requirements before you can be considered for entry:
- A passport that is valid for at least six months1
- Sufficient funds for the length of your intended stay
- A submitted SG Arrival Card2
- A valid Singapore entry visa (to check whether you need a visa, see Visa Requirements)
- A confirmed onward or return ticket (where applicable)
- Evidence that you can enter your next destination (for example, a visa)
- A Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate, if applicable
- Travellers are required to adhere to the latest travel requirements and advisories on the SafeTravel website, where applicable.
Please refer to Visa Free Transit Facility for further information on the facility.
If you are eligible for entry, you will receive a Visit Pass which will indicate the period of stay granted. Check your Visit Pass and the number of days you can stay before leaving the checkpoint.
From 11 March 2022, all foreign visitors arriving in Singapore will be notified digitally of their Visit Pass (e-Pass) through email. There will not be any endorsement on your passport. The e-Pass notification will indicate the period of stay granted and last day of stay allowed. Please ensure that you provide a valid email address when submitting the SG Arrival Card.
While in Singapore, on a visit pass, you are not permitted to engage in any business, professional or paid employment activities.
Overstaying is a punishable offence in Singapore. If you want to stay beyond the period of stay granted, you can apply for an extension online using the e-Service or
go to the Visitor Services Centre on Level 4 of the ICA Building before your Visit Pass expires. Applications for an extension of stay are subject to approval.
1Every traveller is required to hold their own individual passport, regardless of age.
2The SG Arrival Card is the electronic version of the paper disembarkation/ embarkation (DE) card (or commonly known as the white card) that foreign visitors are required to submit on arrival. From 27 March 2020, ICA will discontinue the use
of paper DE card and all travellers will have to provide their arrival information via the “SG Arrival Card” e-Service instead.
