You are here on SVP #1
You are looking at e-extend, as you wish to extend SVP #1, into lets call it 'SVP #2'.
i.e. you wish to stay in the country.
When it says:
'e) you will not return to Singapore within 5 days from the departure date of your current trip'
Your 'current trip' is your present unextended trip: Since you have not applied for an extension yet, nor been granted one.
Subtle, but confusing.
It would be clearer if it said something like
e) If you apply for an extension, and are granted one, you will then not be eligible to return to Singapore within 5 days of your departure from that extended trip.
Ore summink liek tat...
Like this can
Arrive 1st June, get 30 day on arrival, go online to exend- +30 day without local sponsor, +60 day with local sponsor, and then the disclaimer comes out .. that ..
"e) you will not return to Singapore within 5 days from the departure date of your current trip"
but doesn't say if you go out for 5 days, a 'reset' applies .. (yes, some ask here if they can 'reset' the visa .. right .. ) and then the ICA site goes on to say ..
Travellers who do not fulfill the above conditions would need to apply for an extension in person at the Visitor Services Centre (4th Storey) of the ICA Building. "
and the above exclusion applied in my case, there was no need to exit and disappear for 5 days, but a visa fee of 40 $ was applicable, as per law, since the original visa + extension ran into 89 days .. had to submit a Form 14 and photo and show proof of marriage etc . and extended for another 30 day and another 30 day .. (so 40$ X 2 for the last two personal extensions ..
