Query on Social Visit Pass(SVP) extension

Post by raj2003 » Wed, 15 Sep 2010 10:17 pm

Hi,

I have 2 yrs multiple entry visa, i am an indian, currently came to singapore on 09/08/2010 and got a initial stay for 30 days. I extended it online till 09/10/2010, I want to extend it for 1 more month. Can i go to malaysia on 09/10/2010 or 2 days before that and come back after 7-8days, will i get extension for another 30 days? Will the immgration officer ask for a return ticket to india at port of entry from malysia to singapore.

Friends pls guide me.

Thanks.

If you have a 2 year, multiple entry visa, then why are you worried about border runs?

If you go to Malaysia you should get at least 14 days on your return. Maybe 30, provided you stay out of the country for 7-8 days as noted. Yes, it is possible that they will require a valid onward ticket as well. Tis better to be prepared than to be caught short.

Though i have 2 yrs multiple entry i cannot stay more than 60 days, i have to out of singapore and enter again right?

Suppose if i take a flight ticket to india after 30 days and immigration office will give me extension of 14 days on entry from malyasia to singapore then what can i do?

To be honest, I really don't know. Maybe MS will know when he sees this. You shouldn't need an onward ticket but I'm really not to sure what the time duration actually is. Most don't have multiple entry unless they are on a work visa of some kind. You are on a LTSVP or a normal SVP?

Are you on business or Apec visa ? Only business visa has multiple entry
Student visa has no limit on entry as long as you are studying in approved institution

If you are on this , you can come in and out as much as you like. ICA would not care. You do not need to show return ticket
Most sub continent and Asian countries will get 30 days standard bog visa. Only Malaysian will get either 7, 14, 30 days depending on your route of entry.
