Indian Passport and Australian PR: Singapore Visa Needed?

by Roy David Choweller
(Dubai - UAE)

Am an Indian national & holder of an Indian passport living in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates for the past 17 years. Am also holding a permanent Australian residency visa.

I want to stop over in Singapore for around 72 hours before flying onwards to Melbourne. Yes I have a confirmed Singapore Airlines ticket for my onward journey to Melbourne. WOULD I NEED A SINGAPORE VISA PRIOR TO ARRIVAL?

Indian Passport Holders with Visa to Australia Are Given 96 hours entry into Singapore
by: Gabriel Tan

Hi Roy
I recently spoke to the CAAS staff at Singapore Airport regarding this, and answered a similar question about Singapore visa requirements for Indian passport holders on stopovers.

They told me that Indian Passport holders with valid visas to enter Australia will be allowed 96 hours in Singapore, without needing a Singapore Social Visit visa.

Since you're going to be in Singapore for 72 hours, you shouldn't have problem for the stopover.

Having said this, please note that visa requirements are constantly changing and I would advise that you also verify this with the Singapore Overseas Mission in Dubai just before you travel:

Address: Villa No 124, Street 30d, Community No. 334, Al Satwa, Dubai.

Phone: +971 4 321 9498

Hi there

We've stopped answering questions about Singapore visa requirements, which can only be properly answered by the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

Please follow the steps recommended here to ascertain your Singapore visa requirements.

Have a good trip.
