Singapore visa for the citizens of Macau

Singapore visa for the citizens of Macau
iVisa | Updated on Jan 16, 2019

While Macau is on the list of countries whose citizens are exempt from getting a visa for Singapore, according to Singapore’s visa policy, holders of Macau Special Administrative Region Travel Permit can apply online for a Singapore e-visa. The document mentioned is given to non-permanent residents of Macau SAR holding Chinese nationality. If that happens to be the case for you, you are no longer required to visit the nearest Singaporean diplomatic mission to get your visa.

What are the requirements?

The one thing that you will love the most about iVisa is that it asks very little effort on your part. All you have to do is give them some information and a few documents to get the process started, but once you do that, you are pretty much done. iVisa will handle all the bureaucracy for you. Here is a list of everything you need to provide:

  • Copy of your Macau Special Administrative Region Travel Permit

  • Passport – all applicants must hold a valid passport that does not expire for at least another 6 months from the date of departure from Singapore

  • Digital photo – the picture must be taken in the last 3 months and meet all the other guidelines for a passport photo.

  • Valid e-mail address – iVisa will send you your visa via e-mail in PDF format. Do not forget to print it out before departure. Preferably in multiple copies.

  • Means of online payment – the payment must be made during the application process, which is why you must have a credit/debit card. However, if you use PayPal, Alipay, or WeChat, iVisa accepts those as well. Whichever you find more convenient.

  • Return flight ticket – you will be asked to present it when you arrive in Singapore. The immigration officers just want to make sure that you do not overstay your welcome.

The application process

After you put together all of the above, you can move on to the next phase, and that is to fill in the application form. You do not have to worry about it being challenging because it is as simple as it can possibly be. It should not take you more than 20 minutes to complete, and if you are in need of assistance, iVisa has an excellent support service that can help you 24/7.

The application form designed by iVisa consists of three simple steps. Step number one requires you to fill in your general information, such as name, address, date of birth, passport info, and some details about your trip. You are also asked to choose a processing time, but your choice determines the cost of your Singapore e-visa. You have three options:

  • Standard processing – your application is processed within 72 hours, and you will be charged $57.

  • Rush processing – this option is a bit faster. Your Singapore e-visa arrives in 24 hours, but you need to pay $87.

  • Super Rush processing – this is the fastest option you have. Your application will be processed within 18 hours, and you need to pay a fee of $122.

Step number two requires you to make the payment and carefully revise your form so that there are no mistakes, while the last step covers the documents upload. You need to provide some of the documents above so that iVisa can process them. After that, you can submit your application, and that is it.

The bottom line is that while the citizens of Macau do not need a Singapore e-visa, those who have a Macau Special Administrative Region Travel Permit can apply online for the document. It is valid for 90 days since issue, it grants multiple entries, and you are allowed to stay for up to 30 days in Singapore.
