Advice for Singapore Citizens Travelling Abroad/Returning to Singapore

Back to top

Singapore citizens travelling overseas should note the following:

  • Make sure your passport is valid for at least six months before departure. It should be in good condition, with no torn or missing pages. If your passport appears to have been tampered with, you could have difficulties at a foreign airport, including being refused entry.
  • Ensure you have the required entry visa for your destination country. Please visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) website for information on visa requirements and overseas consular offices.
  • Record information about your itinerary on MFA’s eRegister system. The information you provide will allow MFA to contact you to make sure that you are safe and, if need be, assist you should an emergency (for example, a natural disaster, civil unrest) occur.
  • Check your passport and endorsements as soon as you arrive at and depart from foreign countries. If you find any discrepancies, you should contact the police or immigration authority in the foreign country.
