SINGAPORE VISA RUN
Visiting Singapore on a Visa Run? Here is the information you need.
Singapore is the most popular Visa Run location due to the efficient
service of the Embassy and the holiday and shopping opportunities
of the city-state of Singapore. Shop, eat and be merry could be
the motto of the Lion City. Enjoy.

Visa applications are accepted ONLY in the morning and processed
visas can ONLY be collected in the afternoon.
Application for Visas and Renewal of Visas (Submission of Requests):
09.00 - 12.00 hrs
Collection of Processed Visas:
15.00 - 17.00 hrs
Visas take three days to process. The fee schedule is posted on
the wall of the embassy. For a higher fee, many visas can be processed
in one day: ask for ‘express service’. This is unofficial
and costs about S$90.
Many people use the services of a visa agent who can collect your
passport from your hotel and deliver it back to you the same day.
Contact your visa business service here in Bali for details. This
is by far the easiest and frees you from going to the embassy [shop,
eat and be merry, remember?]. On the safe side, photocopy your passport
before giving it to any agent or the embassy.
Entering the Embassy
When entering the Embassy grounds all visitors are required to
exchange an identity card (ID) for a Visitor Pass at the Security
Counter. This needs to be something other than your passport like
a driver’s license, etc.
The Embassy has a dress code and the following attires are not
allowed inside the Embassy premises:
- Shorts and Bermudas (except children below 12 yrs)
- Singlet/strapless top
- Plastic sandals (best to wear shoes)
Once you are inside, you need to find the forms you need to fill
out. You can take a number from the number machine before or after
you fill in your forms. This machine is similar with machines in
banks: push the button for what you intend to do and wait for your
number to be called for service. You need 2 passport size photos
and support letters / documents from your visa agent in Bali or
letters from whomever is sponsoring you. Pay your fee in Singapore
dollars at this time.
Dates the Embassy is Closed
Please note, the Embassy is closed on Indonesian and Singapore
National/Public holidays. Also, closed Saturday and Sunday.
Time: Singapore is in the same time zone as Bali.
Tipping: There is usually no tipping in Singapore
