The authority for information on visa requirements is the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). Information here is extracted from their website If you wish to find out more about visa requirements, please refer to this website.

Visa Requirements
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.

Check if you need Entry Visa
Please refer to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority’s website to check if you require an Entry Visa.

Visa Applications
You may apply for a visa online which must be submitted by a Local Contact (a Singapore citizen or Singapore Permanent Resident who you know). Your Local Contact may submit a visa application on your behalf using the e-Services. Your Local Contact will require his/her Singpass to use the service.
