    I plan to go to Singapore, and for Singapore, there is the visa on arrival option. I would like to find out more about the visa on arrival option for Singapore and know what the whole procedure is.

    I would like the step by step procedure?

    Also, would I need to do anything in India before I leave for Singapore?

    When getting the visa on arrival, how long is the visa valid for?

    Visa Policy of Singapore - Does Singapore have Visa on Arrival?

    Singapore has different visa policies for different countries around the world. Citizens of countries in the western part of the globe, like Europe, some parts of Asia and of course America, can enter the country visa free. For citizens of some countries, designated Assessment Level I Countries and Assessment Level II Countries, a visa is necessary before entering Singapore. India is part of the Assessment Level I Countries, therefore, Indian nationals need to apply for an electronic visa prior to entering Singapore. The process is fairly simple and can be completed at three days at the most. With an electronic visa at hand, Indian nationals can enter Singapore without any issues. There is no visa on arrival facility in Singapore, except maybe for transit passengers (those who have a valid boarding pass for their main destination and only passing through Singapore) but even issuing of the visa on arrival then is not assured.

    Singapore Electronic Visa for Indian Nationals

    You have two options for applying for a Singapore Electronic Visa, if you're an Indian national. The first one requires that you know someone from Singapore itself, a local who has a SingPass account. He or she can apply for your Singapore visa on your behalf locally, saving you some money in the long run. However, if you don't know any locals from Singapore, you're left with just one option and that is to apply for the Electronic Visa via an authorised agent in India. This guide would focus more on the second option, since not many people have friends or relatives in Singapore. Beforehand, you need to prepare the following requirements to ensure that your visa would be approved.

    Requirements for Singapore Electronic Visa for Indian Nationals
    • Fully completed and signed Form 14A from the Government of Singapore website
    • Valid passport with at least six months of validity
    • Two recent coloured passport sized photographs attached to the form (Must have a white background with matte finish, 35 mm in width x 45 mm in height)
    • Cover letter stating your purpose of visit plus the number of days you intend to stay in the country
    • Confirmed return air ticket, hotel booking and itinerary
    • Bank statements for the last six months
    The first four requirements are necessary while the last two are optional. But to increase your chances of getting approved, it's best to include the last two requirements when submitting your documents to one of the authorised Singapore visa agents in India. If any of your documents is in a language other than English, you have to have it officially translated into English.

After which, they would submit your application to the High Commission of the Republic of Singapore in Delhi. Alternatively, you can also have your documents picked up from your house or office by any one of these agencies, but there's a separate charge for that.
