Singapore Visa Process

Processing Time And Fees

Depending on the type of educational institution that a foreigner is intending to study at, the processing time for a Student's Pass will differ.

Processing Fee

A processing fee of $30 is required for every application submitted to ICA. The fee is non-refundable regardless of the outcome of the application or if application is withdrawn after submission. For submission via Solar, please make payment by credit/debit card or internet banking.

Issuance Fee

A $60 issuance fee for every student's pass issued and a further $30 multiple-entry visa fee for visa required nationals, where applicable. The fee is payable when the successful applicant completes the formality to collect the Student's Pass.

You will need to pay the processing fee during the application stage. The system will prompt you that the application is "Pending Processing Fee." Payment must be made via SOLAR+.

Visa Approval

When the application for a Student's Pass is approved, an In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter will be issued for the applicant to complete the formalities and collect the Student's Pass card at ICA. The Security Deposit if required, would be indicated in the IPA letter to the applicant.

Successful applicant must bring along the In-principle Approval (IPA) letter and the relevant documents as stated in the IPA to collect the Student's pass(STP). Applicant must make an appointment with ICA prior to reporting to ICA for the collection of the STP. You may wish to make an appointment to meet us using our e-service e-Appointment.
