Singapores visa policy is concerned with the criteria for entry into the city-state. A foreign individual, depending on their country of origin, must complete specific conditions in order to receive a visa, which is a permission to travel, enter, and stay in the country. A visa is a permit to travel, enter, and remain in the country. A visa may also confer additional rights on the visa holder, such as the ability to work or study in the country where the visa was obtained, and these rights may be subject to restrictions.
When visiting Singapore, citizens of certain countries and territories who qualify for visa waivers can enter for a period of 30 or 90 days without a visa, depending on their nationality; however, some visitors who wish to stay for a longer period of time must first obtain a visa in advance before being allowed to enter.
