Most Western nationals either do not require a visa at all or do not require a visa for a social stay of up to 90 days. A 30-day permit is issued on arrival and extensions are difficult to obtain.
The traveler must hold a national passport, valid for at least 6 months after the date of departure from Singapore, together with confirmed onward or return travel documentation, and sufficient funds to cover expenses for duration of his or her stay.
Women more than 24 weeks pregnant must obtain a Social Visit Pass prior to arrival; apply at the High Commission or Embassy.
Severe penalties are imposed on those found in possession of narcotics; the death penalty is in force for those convicted of trafficking in heroin or morphine.
Regulations are subject to change without notice and all visitors are therefore advised to check with the High Commission or Embassy before leaving.
