Visiting VISA Extension

Post by ramuhmn » Sat, 21 Sep 2013 9:09 pm

Hi ,
My Name Is Ramu,Recently My wife came on visiting visa and finished one month.For staying more time here i taken her to Indonesia and returned back to Singapore.While entering in to Singapore at immigration they questioned how long you are going to stay here then we answered 2 more days.Then they said,we are giving 7 days . so she can leave Singapore in this period and don't follow this visa.so they stamped on passport.But in that stamp identified that she permitted to stay in Singapore another 30 days.So can we continue one more month.


Can anyone please advise me on this

I would suggest you follow the advice of the immigration officer. Just because the stamp says 30 days, if you were told 7 then it probably will be noted in the computer. If you overstay, that will cause a red flag to pop up and you will then be in a heap of trouble.

I may differ a bit there .. the stamp on your passport is what it says it is ..

30 day = 30 day ..

ICA officers don't say 7 day, enter 7 days into the system and stamp 30 on the passport .. from what I know .. and I could be wrong though ...

it would be wise to check directly with ICA ..
