Vaccination certificates are currently valid for 270 days after receiving the final dose. A booster dose cancels this expiration date.

Fully vaccinated travelers aged 13 and older are exempt from showing a negative PCR or antigen test result if they can show a vaccination certificate. Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated travelers must still show a negative PCR or an antigen test result taken within 48 hours before departure.

The Singapore eVisa is only for tourism purposes.
Travelers must have their passports with at least 6 months of validity from the date of arrival and have at least 1 page available for stamping.
The Singapore eVisa is valid for 63 days after issued and allows the holder a maximum stay of 30 days Per Entry. However, due to highly chances of rejection, we only process applications for tourists staying no more than 15 days Per Entry.
Having a Singapore eVisa does not provide an automatic right of entry into the country (also known as being granted an immigration pass). The Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officer at the port of entry may refuse entry to any person if they consider that a person is unable to fulfill the immigration requirements or that such person's presence in Singapore would be contrary to national interests or security.
A proof of accommodation is required to obtain the travel document. The dates in this document MUST match the travel dates selected in the application. This is a requirement that is demanded by the government in order to issue the travel document.
Please be aware that, due to frequent rejections of the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority, we are not accepting applications for women under 40 years old traveling alone.
All unvaccinated travelers need travel insurance with a minimum coverage of S$30,000 against COVID-19-related medical charges.
iVisa is a legitimate company, accredited and recognized by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). For more information, see the FAQs below.

Is entry to Singapore guaranteed if I have a visa?
The Singapore Immigration Authority is in charge of deciding and granting valid Singapore visas, and as with any visa to any other country, possessing one does not guarantee a foreign national entry into the country.
Immigration Authority officers at the Singapore checkpoints get the final say on whether you can enter or not, and each case is considered on its own merits.
What can be a possible reason for the refusal of a visa?
Refusals by the Immigration and Checkpoint Authorities are rare, and the reasons are not disclosed. However, some causes of rejection by the Immigration & Checkpoints authority include the following:
The applicant did something wrong during their previous stay in Singapore
The applicant has abused the visa regime or overstayed the permitted time during their previous stay
The applicant has another currently valid visa to Singapore
The applicant has already been refused a visa recently
The applicant has already applied for a visa with another agency
The photograph is not sharp or bright enough
Due to increased illegal activity by female tourists entering Singapore with a tourist visa, the ICA has become much stricter with the visa approval procedure.
