What Is The Process?
Unfortunately ‘The High Commission of Singapore’ doesn’t accept individual applications at this moment. Instead, they have designated Authorized Visa Agents/Strategic Partners to process an application for travelers. These Agents/Partners acts as an application center for a traveler while applying for Singapore visa from India.

How Much Time Would It Take?
For an Indian passport holder applying in India,
- It would take around 3–4 business days to process Singapore tourist visa.
- The embassy has authorized partners for each city. So depending on your place of application, this time may vary.
- It is safe to have at least 7 business days in hand before submitting your application though.
- You can only apply for Singapore visa 30 days prior to your actual travel date.

Would It Cost Too High?
Not really. The embassy/consulate charges are INR 1924 as of now as the visa fees, which is comparatively less than many other countries.
