Hi Rola,

According to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority in Singapore, the type of application for Pakistan nationals is the Visa for Assessment Level II Countries.

The following is quoted from the page:


To apply for an entry visa, the applicant should complete Form 14 as well as furnish a copy of Form V39A (Letter of Introduction - LOI) issued by a local contact in Singapore.

In the case of business visits, the local contact must be a Singapore-registered corporation. For social visits, the local contact must be a Singapore Citizen, Singapore Permanent Resident or a Singapore-registered corporation. If you are not able to furnish a LOI from a local contact, you may approach your Embassy or Ministry of Foreign Affairs to issue a LOI to support your visa application.

Hope that helps. :)

oslaue, what passport do you hold, Brits get thirty days on entry as I THINK most european holders do, may be wrong but worth checking out before you come. Singapore imigration have no problem chucking folk back on the next flight out.

Hey Hien, thenks for ur reply,

I found a work around though, I got KUL-SIN-KUL ticket from singapore airlines and they will get me Singapore visa, later it is up to me if I use their air ticket or not, but if i dont, i have to pay 40% cancellation charges.

not a bad deal i guess... mite help some one else facing the same issue....
