Here is an important notice to the China nationals:

With effect from 9 February 2024, holders of ordinary passports issued by the People’s Republic of China will be exempted from visa requirements for a stay of up to 30 days in Singapore.

These include the PRC Travel Document, Hong Kong SAR Document of Identity (DOI) and Macau SAR Travel Permit.

 

Singapore implements electronic visa(e-visa). Please refer to the website of embassies and consulates in your country for details about the requirements for applying for e-visa. After the visa is approved, you should carefully check the information such as name, gender, date of birth, passport number and entry times to ensure that it is accurate and consistent with the passport. If the information is found to be incorrect, it should be corrected in time. Entering Singapore with a visa with incorrect information may lead to refusal of entry.

 

Please note:

Duration of stay. The Singapore visa only shows the validity period (meaning to enter Singapore no later than a certain time) and the number of times, and the stay time in Singapore is subject to the electronic Visit Pass or e-Pass issued at the time of entry.

Number of arrivals. The number of visas should be confirmed in advance. If you want to travel to Malaysia and Indonesia around Singapore and then return to Singapore, you need to apply for two or more valid visas.

 

Singapore Arrival Card

All travelers are required to submit the Singapore Arrival Card(SGAC) within three (3) days (including the day of arrival) before arriving in Singapore.

 

To submit the Singapore Arrival Card, it is recommended to download the MyICA Mobile APP for your convenience. You can get it easily when you need it. And you can also submit the SGAC online through the official website of ICA.

 

 

Short-Term Visit Pass(STVP) Extension in Singapore

All STVP extension applications must be submitted online to the official website of ICA(Immigration & Checkpoints Authority). And the extension to the STVP is up to 14 days before the STVP expires. The extension of STVP will be processed with 3 working days.

 

 

Passport Loss

If you lose your passport in Singapore, please immediately report the loss at any police station, neighbourhood police or police post. Then you should contact your embassy, high commission or consular office to apply for a replacement travel document. You can find the addresses and contact details of the foreign missions above on the official website of the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
