Visitors must have a valid passport or internationally recognised travel document valid for at least six months beyond the date of entry into Singapore. Travellers from the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and most European countries automatically receive a 30-day tourist visa on entry if arriving by air, or a 14-day visa if arriving by land or sea. You may be asked to produce a return/onwards plane ticket and evidence of a healthy bank account. For visa extensions, the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (6391 6100; 10 Kallang Rd) bamboozles you with forms, queues, red tape and bureaucracy. Applications take at least a day to process.
