Hi everyone,

What is the maximum days to stay that can apply on Short term visit pass?

A few months ago, I heard that it can be apply up to 90days from a local sponsor. How can I apply for 3 months short term visit pass?

Last time when i enter singapore, I extended to 2 months.

Last couple of times I visited SG I stayed 6 hours, and 12 hours respectively. On both my D/E cards I stated that my duration of stay was 0 days. Both times ICA gave me 90 days.

But none of that helps you, as it has no bearing on you and your situation. Sorry.

Most normal people can get an SVP on arrival.

Where are you from?

The main factor is what the ICA deem your reason for wanting to stay here for 90 days. As this is your second time of wanting an extended SVP to stay in Singapore the obvious alarm bells will ring and you will probably be flagged as wanting to work illegally.

No offence, but, frankly the story seems a bit lame and the fact you worked here and no longer do you have access to working life, why do you need 3 months? how can you afford that much time off work in China?

I'm with SMS... If I was ICA, I wouldn't extend you, I'd no be surprised if they didn't even let you in to be fair!
