1. Valid travel document (minimum validity of 6 months at the time of departure).
A valid travel document is a necessary requirement for applying for a Singapore visa. This document will usually be an international passport, but other forms of travel documents such as a National Identity Document or Evidence of Permanent Residence may also be accepted. The passport should have a minimum validity of 6 months at the time of departure.
2. Confirmed onward or return tickets (if applicable).
If you are travelling with an international ticket for onward travel, you must present evidence of your confirmed booking at the point of entry into Singapore. This may be in the form of an itinerary from the airline/travel agent or an e-ticket number and online flight booking page. If you are entering Singapore on a one-way ticket, you will need to provide proof that you have sufficient funds (at least SGD 1000) to cover any return costs.
3. Entry facilities, including visas, to the next destination.
You will be required to provide evidence that you possess valid entry facilities to the next destination, including visas and re-entry permits. If you are traveling out of Singapore without any onward travel plans, you will be required to produce evidence that you have sufficient funds (at least SGD 1000) to cover any return costs.
4. Sufficient funds to maintain themselves during their stay in Singapore.
In order for an individual wishing to enter Singapore visa-free or on a visa-on-arrival basis, they must prove that they possess sufficient funds (at least SGD 1000). This may include proof of a current bank statement or cashier's check from your local bank showing a minimum balance of SGD 1000. Credit cards are generally not accepted as evidence of sufficient funds.
5. Visa for entry into Singapore (if applicable).
If you require a visa to enter Singapore, you must apply for and obtain this prior to your departure. The type of visa required will depend on the purpose of your visit, such as business, tourism, study, or employment. Most visas can be obtained from the embassy or High Commission in your country of residence. You may also need supporting documents such as a letter of invitation/employment contract, evidence of enrolment into a course at an educational institution in Singapore etc.
6. Yellow Fever Vaccination (if applicable).
If you are traveling from any country where Yellow Fever is present (as per WHO regulations), you must provide proof that you have been vaccinated against the disease. This must be in the form of an International Certificate of Vaccination (or similar document) issued by a recognized clinic or medical practitioner and must be presented on arrival into Singapore. Failure to provide this certificate may result in you being refused entry.
