I am from India and to visit Singapore for job search, Is it better to apply for Tourist Visa or Social Vist Pass?
The Social Visit Pass, or SVP, is the tourist visa. There is no separate or different thing called the 'Tourist Visa'.
Also Can I directly apply for SVP(which is valid for 3 months)? Or first enter by Tourist Visa (which is valid for 1 month) and apply for SVP to extend stay before Tourist visa expires? Which one would be better?

(My plan is to be in SG for about 2 months time and look for jobs). Your suggestions are much appreciated..
Chief, In India, and in a lot of countries, they don't use the word Social Visit pass, they use the term tourist visa, and hence I believe John Richman (from Chennai) is confusedJR8 wrote: The Social Visit Pass, or SVP, is the tourist visa.

My morning coffee hasn't kicked in And I posted before rushing off to work (shows how dedicated I have became for the cause of the forum .. )JR8 wrote:Morning Squirrel,
The fact that both terms were capitalised suggested to me that he believed both were 'official names' of different visas.
Of course the SVP is what might be considered the everyday tourist visa (non-capitalised).
Sorry I think I'm in an unusually pedantic mood this morning lol
You mean like this ? my, my .. then how to speaketh when the mouth is fulleth ?p.s winter is coming, I hope your nut-sack is nice and full bwahahaha
Good luck getting people to read it. MOM/ICA already listed, highlighted and nicely-formatted these things and people still fail to understand. How many questions do we get from people who claim they've been to the websites and still ask questions answerable if they only bothered to read?ecureilx wrote:Probably there should be a FAQ section, with simple queries like ..
SVP = Short term Visa / Tourist Visa
IPA = something you get only after you found a job, employer applied for EP .. etc., etc
LTVP = worry about it AFTER THE EPEC is approved, not now
And more of the Singapore acronyms ..
What says you ??
Because, of late, I realised, not just here, but elsewhere too, a lot of people want 'personalised' advice .. and moreJR8 wrote:That's the thing. It's theoretically a good idea, but would likely not be used. It goes back to the idea of some people thinking their circumstances are unique, and hence requiring 1-1 custom advice.
