How to apply for a visa in Singapore.
Do I need a visa to Singapore for citizens of Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus and other CIS countries? Do I need to get a visa to Singapore in advance? To answer these questions, it is first important to determine the details of your trip to Singapore.
Do you fly purposefully to Singapore itself or transit through Singapore (with a stop in it for a couple of days)? It is from this that the answer to the question “is it necessary to pre-register a visa to Singapore?”. So there are two options: a visa-free transit visit to Singapore and not a transit visit, when a visa needs to be received in advance.
