As a Singapore passport holder, I’m incredibly blessed to have the most powerful passport in the world. Singapore Travellers have visa-free access to over 160 countries.
Although we rarely have to worry about visa requirements, given the current state of the world, it is still advisable to check if the country you are travelling to will require health declaration documents or if it is safe to travel to your destination.
Countries that Require Travel Visa from Singaporean Travellers
Singapore travellers will need a visa to visit Australia, so does every other nationality in the world except New Zealanders.
Apply for your visa 3 working days before your date of travel which allows you repeat entry into Australia within a period of 12 months.
As of 1 Jan 2018, Singaporeans are eligible for an exclusive long-validity visitor visa to Australia. It is just like the Australian visitor visa but it allows you multiple entries for up to 3 months at a time that is valid for 6 years. Recommended if you want to avoid the hassle of applying for the ETA every year.
Bhutan has one of the world’s most stringent tourist visa requirements. You must book your trip through a Bhutanese tour operator or one of their international partners who will make the necessary visa arrangements on your behalf.
You can find out more from Ministry of Foreign Affairs Singapore.
Singaporean travellers need a visa to travel to India unless you are travelling to Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata, Trivandrum, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Goa or Kochi airports, where visas-on-arrival are available at USD$25 which takes a long time so it’s advisable to apply for your visa before departing to India.
Apply for your visa at least four working days before you travel which enables you stay in India for up to 30 days.
If you are entering Russia via an authorised cruise operator, you can stay in Russia for 72 hours without visas.
Otherwise, you will have to get a Russian travel agency or hotel to issue you a Tourist Confirmation which will require anywhere between 4 days to 6 weeks to get your visa ready and will only release when you have booked your stay.
You need to obtain pre-approval via email to the Venezuelan Embassy for a visa to Venezuela.
You are required to submit documentations such as passport photographs, proof of employment, yellow fever certificate, proof of financial means, travel insurance and there may be an interview during the pre-approval process. You may need at least 3 months for your visa to be ready.
