Transiting through Singapore and Free Transit Visa

Transit visa for 96 hours (4 days)
You are eligible for such a visa if you are flying through Singapore to a third country in transit. For example, Kuala Lumpur - Singapore - Bali. If you are flying Bali - Singapore - Bali, it is not considered transit. If you arrive from a country in Singapore and return to the same country, you won't be issued a transit visa. In this case, you need to apply for an electronic visa. Bali.Live recommends LegalIndonesia for Singapore visa processing. Processing time is from two working days. The service cost starts from 1,900,000 IDR. Exact processing time and cost depend on the applicant's citizenship. Transit visa in Singapore is issued for free upon arrival at the airport. Entrance and exit are counted by hours.
Note that the final decision on granting the right to visa-free transit through Singapore remains at the discretion of the immigration officer at the border.
If you don't have to leave the transit area of the airport for re-registration or baggage transfer, you don't need a visa. The key is to ensure that during check-in at the departure point, you will be issued boarding passes to and from Singapore and that your baggage is checked through to the final destination.
To obtain it, you need to:
1. Arrive in Singapore by any means of transport.
2. Have an airline ticket to a third country (not the one you are entering from).
3. Do not forget about a visa to the third country if required.
4. Hotel reservation if you plan to stay overnight.
Also, you'll need an arrival card, which must be filled out 3 days before arrival. It is advisable to print all these documents - you will be asked to present them at the arrival counter. Agencies also warn that in some cases, there may be a refusal of a transit visa in Singapore. Refusals are often related to ticketing. For example, if you have a Bali - Singapore - Bali ticket, airlines won't let you board because this route is not considered transit (you are leaving and returning back). Problems with a single ticket may also arise, even if the route is more complex, for example, Bali - Singapore - Kuala Lumpur - Bali (the same principle). It's better to play it safe and get a separate ticket from the third country back to the island. Tickets can be either single or separate (by different airlines and in different purchases). Changi Airport in Singapore has resumed free bus tours for transit passengers since April 3. Three bus tour routes are available: around Changi, an overview tour of central Singapore, and a cultural-historical tour (available from June). There is also a walking tour of Changi Airport itself. Registration is required before passing through immigration in a live queue at the Free Singapore Tour counters in the transit area. They are open from 7 am to 1 pm at Terminal 2 near exit F50 and at Terminal 3 near exits A1–A8. Boarding passes and passports are required.
