Canadians intending to visit Singapore for touristic or business purposes, and stays of a maximum of 30 days, are allowed to obtain visas upon arrival. However, Singapore immigration strictly enforces the rule of passport validity of 6 months beyond the intended departure from the territory. To gain entry into Singapore, Canadian citizens will have to satisfy Singapore Immigration Officers of the following requirements:
General Entry Requirements:
- Canadian passport with validity of at least 6 months beyond the date of intended departure from Singapore.
- Valid visa for the next destination, if required.
- Confirmed return or onward airline ticket.
- Sufficient funds for the duration of stay in Singapore.
Additionally, those arriving from yellow fever-infected areas must submit an international certificate of yellow fever vaccination. Failure to produce this document will result in denial of entry into Singapore.
Canadian citizens intending to work, study or reside in Singapore for a period longer than 6 months are required to go through a complete medical examination including chest X-ray and a test for HIV. These tests must be completed in Singapore. The medical report will be an important basis for the issuance of an employment pass, long-term immigration pass or permanent residence permit.
For further information on visa and entry requirements, Canadians are advised to contact the Consulate of the Republic of Singapore. The information provided here is subject to change without prior notice.
