Similar to any other visa of another country, possession of a valid Visa does not entitle a foreign national to enter Singapore automatically.
Granting of a visit pass to foreign visitors is determined by the officer of the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority at the Singapore checkpoints and each case is considered on its own merits.
Refusals by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority are quite rare. Reasons for refusals of a Singapore Visa are never given to us by the Immigration & Checkpoints authority. As far as we are aware, some of the main reasons for refusal can be if:
- the applicant has done something wrong during their previous stay in Singapore;
- the applicant has abused the visa regime or overstayed the permitted time during their previous stay;
- the applicant has another currently valid visa to Singapore;
- the applicant has already been refused a Singapore visa recently;
- the applicant has already applied for a visa with another agency;
- the photograph is not as per the specifications.
