He has the IPA that is all that is required.
Some airlines have a requirement to show the original visa copy in their Singapore office for an OK TO BOARD message.
This no longer is a requirement from other airlines.
One way out is to fly to another city and transit out to Singapore.
Get a visa to that country stamped on your passport.
Alternatively contact your local singapore embassy and ask them to issue a letter saying that it is standard practice for Singapore to issue only ELECTRONIC VISA's and that they do not issue Physical visas stamped on Passport anymore.
PS. you will never get a physical passport. You need to work out of your local bureaucracy and convince them that this is standard practice for countries like Singapore now.
Also this has nothing to do with his nationality or the actions committed by them. I think this thread has gone off on a tangent
mm actually the OP mentioned his IPA says that it contains a visa which can be used for travel. Why would ICA want another visa when his IPA says it holds a valid visa?Mad Scientist wrote: If you do not know please keep quite, have you ever bother to read the thread.The IPA is on paper , he still need VISA to enter SG
If you think we are advising him wrongly , show the link to state otherwise.
Pakistanis trying to even enter OZ. SG etc is subject to such inspection. Not only in foreign country but in their own soil.
I think you are on the wrong tangent.
Though the letter states a single entry visa, the visa authority must be stamped in the passport by the issuing office, that would be the Singapore Office Embassy in Pakistan, which is the jurisdiction office for visa'sactually the OP mentioned his IPA says that it contains a visa which can be used for travel
Look Faelle, you are making a lot of contradictory remarks which are confusing OP and readers alike. This is an immigration regulatory requirement which requires links that support it.FaeLLe wrote:
Actually I know a Pakistani citizen who had a similar IPA with a valid visa (like the OP claims to have) and did not require an Ok to Board because he did a transit through Dubai, UAE through Emirates.
An article describing the "Ok to Board" can be found at http://avindia.blogspot.com/2007/05/ind ... board.html
