Submission of visa application may be done online, in person or by mail.
Online: Submit your visa application online via Submission of Application for Visa Electronically (SAVE) through a local contact with a SingPass account.
By Mail: To facilitate the return of your passport by post, please provide a self-addressed and stamped US Postal Service (USPS) Express Mail Flat Rate envelope OR a self-addressed prepaid envelope from a courier service of your choice. For the latter, please make sure that pick-up service from our location is available.
Processing Time: It takes approximately 2 to 3 business days from the date of receipt of complete applications though some may take longer. Applicants should therefore give allowance for processing and possible postal delays before their intended departure. The processing time required is independent of the mode of application (i.e. either by post or in person). There is no facility of expediting service. Depending on the documents produced, local sponsors (i.e. Singapore Citizens/Permanent Residents) and security bond may be required.
