Multiple Entry Tourist Visa for Singapore
Myself and my wife are planning a week in Bali in September 2010 and on the way back we are planning 3-4 days in Singapore.
We plan to book tickets as Mumbai-Singapore Return and Singapore-Bali Return as this would be a cheaper option (These would be with different operators mostly). But I guess this means that we need to pass through immigration in to Singapore and collect baggage and then immediately proceed to the flight to Bali.
Just wanted to check if it is allowed to pass through immigration in to a country and then immediately fly out of the country?
Secondly, on the return journey we would be halting in Singapore for 3-4 days. This means a second entry in Singapore. So do we need to ask for a multiple entry tourist Visa for Singapore in our application?
As long as you have all the relevant documents, there is nothing to stop you from entering Singapore and flying out almost immediately.
It does seem you'll need a multiple-entry visa for Singapore, or at least 2 separate single-entry visas. As I am not the official representative of the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) - and no one else posting on this thread is - I advise that you verify your Singapore visa requirement with either the Singapore ICA or the Singapore Embassy in your city.
Read this article about Singapore entry requirements, where there are links to the relevant authorities, as well as to Trusted Partners, who are usually travel agents appointed by the Singapore ICA.
Also, what should be the time interval you would suggest we keep between Mumbai-Singapore and Singapore-Bali flights during our onward journey? Also, let us know if you have better ideas? Thanks.
I would suggest that you leave at least 3 hours. But I have ever experienced a 4-hour delay while taking a budget airline into Singapore - so be warned.
