The complexity involved in getting visa to most of the countries for Indian passport holders, makes last-minute plans a difficult task. Arranging all the required documents, considerable turn around time at embassy plus time required for sending the application and then receiving passport back adds up to a longer processing time. However there are still few ray of hopes specially to some of the Asian countries. One such option is getting a visa to Singapore sitting at your home.

All you have to do is visit  https://www.singapore-visa.sg/ and fill up the application form. It is a very simple form to fill up. Along with application you need to upload scanned copy of first and last page of passport and a color passport photograph. Though I couldn’t find photo requirements mentioned clearly but I would suggest you to follow same rules for photo specification that you follow while applying passport. Next step would be to make payment via credit card and you are done with application. In case you have any queries those will be answered mostly in FAQ section and other information pages on this site.

You will receive your e-visa via email. The official time mentioned is 3-4 days but normally you will receive the visa within 2 days. You will need to take a print out of this document, show it at immigration and you are ready to enter Singapore.

Note : The website mentioned in the post is not a government website but an agency that assists in getting the visa. I have shared the information based on my personal experience however I do not intent to endorse the agency in any form and advice the visitors to use this website based on your own judgement.

    Thank you for sharing this info.

    It is surprising that the service you mentioned isn’t asking for many documents. Can you tell me if you had to provide air tickets and hotel bookings to get an e-visa via them?

      No they don’t ask for any additional document. Well, I was surprised as well. about this. When I researched more, it looks like the company act as a sponsor for the applicants and thus is accountable towards emabassy

        Thanks for quick response Makrand.

        Yeah, I think so too, acting as local sponsor makes sense. Unfortunately when I tried to apply there I couldn’t find option for Indians. A note says “Due to high traffic of applications, the Singapore Visa Service for Indian Citizen is closed for time being”.
        One another web service like them is showing a similar note as well.

        I think I will have to apply through local agent only now. Have to visit another city for that though. I’m thinking of going to Thomas Cook. Do you have any other suggestions?

        Thanks again 🙂

          Ohh. I just checked and looks like it has been discontinued at least for time being :(. In this case then only choice is to apply to Singapore embassy in India. Thomas cook or any other such agency should be fine. Can’t recommend any particular one. I believe the process should not be complex.
