Singapore’s passport is the most powerful passport in the world, tying it alongside that of Japan. Passport holders of Singapore have visa-free access to over 160 countries. To put it into perspective, I should remind you that there are only 198 countries in the world overall!

So, Singaporeans rarely have to worry about visa requirements when traveling to a foreign country for tourism and short-term purposes.

What Do Singaporeans Need for a Visa on Arrival?

To get a  visa on arrival, you must have some or all of the following documents:

  • Your valid passport. The passport must have enough blank pages for a visa or entry stamp.
  • A recent passport-size picture of yourself.
  • Proof of accommodation, such as a hotel reservation.
  • Bank statements or traveller checks, to prove you can sustain yourself financially.
  • A return travel ticket.
  • Travel health insurance.
  • Money to pay the visa fee. Check how much you have to pay and how (cash, credit card, local currency, etc).

Things to note:

  • You have to check whether the airport or entry point you will enter the country through issued visas on arrival. Most countries have specific places where they issue VOAs.
  • You may have to wait until your visa is processed. Depending on the country, it can take mere minutes or several hours.

How Can Singaporeans Apply for an eVisa?

To apply for an eVisa to one of the countries listed, you have to find the official visa application website. The site will be issued by a government body, such as a ministry. Considering that you usually have to pay a fee to receive an electronic visa, make sure that the website that you are applying through is approved and legitimate.

Visa Requirements for Singapore Citizens for Long-Term Stays

Although Singapore passport-holders are exempt from visa requirements for most countries in the world, it should be noted that the exemption only applies for short visits.

The longest amount of time Singaporeans can stay in a country without obtaining a visa is one year (and that’s only in Georgia) while the shortest amount of visa-free access is 14 days (in China). However, on average, a Singapore passport will allow the holder a visa-free stay of about three months.

This means that if you want to stay longer than the visa waiver allows, then you have to obtain the appropriate visa for that country or at least an extension of stay.
