PLEASE HELP I need visa information

Post by Brian smith » Sun, 14 Oct 2018 4:15 pm

Hello everyone, I am a Australian passport holder and I am transiting through Singapore airport on my way to Cebu.

I am wondering if I get a 30 day visa exemption

But I am also wondering what if I want to fly back through Singapore on my way back to Australia and it’s past the 30 days ? What will happen then ? Will I get another visa or be denied entry ?

NO issue either way. Aussies get a 30 day visa on entry and it sounds like your transit anyways so don't need one.

Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA

It says in Singapore Imagration. They want see you have sufficient funds.

I need to know what’s going to be asked of me when i present my self to imigration at Singapore airport.

I think I just get 30 days That’s it ? But what about onward ticket and bank statement.

Since I will clear Imagration then I will be in the arrival hall mayby just mayby I will go out to Singapore for a little look. Or I can check in early and snooze in departures lounge

If you are transiting, you do not present yourself to Singapore immigration. You stay within the controlled part of the airport. That includes the airport hotel, of which there are a couple... they can only be accessed from within the airport. You do not need, and will not get, a visa just to hang around the airport for a few hours.

If you've got multiple hours to kill, just tell them that when you clear customs. I did exactly the same thing in Tokyo. Tell them you want to go into town for a few hours, that you'll be back for your onward flight. You do have that onward ticket, don't you? You'll get a bog standard 30 days.

You are confusing transit through the airport with entering Singapore by passing through immigration. Big difference.

Thanks. But I do need to clear immigration because I am arriving terminal 1 and my onward flight is terminal 4. Low cost budget airline that’s why. So I have to clear immigration

Terminal 4 is new and connection is a bus from Terminal 2, so I think you need to go through immigration. Have a read of this link.

As an Aussie you get at least 30 days (I thought is was 90?) with no issues. Getting around Changi Airport is very easy. If you do have a few hours to kill it's worth while popping into Sg and having a look around.
