Singapore Visa

If you are thinking to visit Singapore for your new year holidays , then here are few tips regarding to get tourist visa. I went Singapore last year and I want to share my experiences with you regarding visa only. Google search for visa requirements was a bit difficult as compare to other countries.When you visit embassy website visa corner you can see some authorized agents who provide tourist visa for Singapore. All websites said one thing that you need Letter of Introduction(LOI) issued by a local contact in Singapore. If you have any friend  with Singapore Citizenship or Permanent Resident and at least 21 years old, he/she can act as a local contact to give you LOI. But incase you do not have any friend or contact in singapore you can write a letter to explain that why you can not submit LOI with your hotel booking and itinerary for the period you are going to stay in singapore.

Documents required to obtain Singapore Tourist Visa are shown below.
