Stopover at Singapore Budget Terminal - Visa Needed?

by Rohil
(India)

I am going from India to Australia by tiger airways. I have a stopover at Singapore for a few hours. I am arriving and departing from the Budget terminal.

Do I need to pass through customs for arriving and departing from the budget terminal? If so do I need to apply for a Singapore Visa from India?

no need to apply for visa
by: rohil

tiger airways informs me now that all indian passport holders who have a visa to enter australia will be given a 96 hour visa on arrival so no need to apply for a regular visa from India. Hope this helps others in their future travels. Thanks

96-hour stay for Indian Passport Holders at Singapore Airport
by: Gabriel Tan

Dear Rohil and all Indian passport holders,

I verified a few things with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore's (CAAS) Customer Service counter. What Rohil wrote above is correct: an Indian passport holder with a valid visa for Australia may enter Singapore for up to 96 hours.

In addition, here are a few small prints to take note of:

1. The 96-hour stopover allowance at Singapore Airport does NOT apply to all onward destinations from Singapore.

2. At Singapore Airport, you need to:

a. show your visa to enter Australia,
b. show your onward air-ticket to Australia,
c. clear customs and collect your checked-in luggage,

before going on your onward flight to Australia.

As visa requirements are constantly changing, please verify all this information with the Singapore Overseas Mission in India just before your departure:

Same for Australians?
by: Bill

Is it the same for Australian passport holders flying from Chennai to Perth - no visa needed to leave the airport in Singapore for a few hours?

Singapore Visa Requirement Questions - Why We're Not Answering Them Any More
by: Gabriel Tan

Hi Bill

Australian passport holders normally do not need a visa to enter Singapore as tourists.

But please do not just take my word for it - because visa requirements change regularly and I don't know whether you are under any unique circumstances.

Since this thread began, there has been an deluge of questions about Singapore visa requirements.

We are not the official spokespeople for the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

So in order to prevent any misunderstanding, I've decided to write up this page about Singapore entry requirements. Follow the steps there and read the linked pages carefully - your visa questions are answered there.

As such, I'll now proceed to lock this thread.
