What is the process for applying for a Singapore visa from Pakistan?Singapore Visa from Pakistan

If you are planning a visit to Singapore; also called one of the Asian Tigers in Southeast Asia, you will need to apply for a visa if you hold a Pakistani passport. Singapore has completely abolished the self-adhesive visa and only issues the e-visa. Unlike a Thai visa in Pakistan and a Malaysian visa in Pakistan, a Singapore visa is not so easy to obtain.

Singapore Visa: Things to Know Before Applying

First, let me clear up your confusion on how the visa is processed. The Honorary Consulate in Lahore simply collects the visa application and does not issue the visa. The visa is processed by Singapore Immigration. Immigration to Singapore is unpredictable with processing times and decision-making.

According to the latest trends. Normally, when the visa is issued, it only takes 6-8 working days. When the case is put on hold, it takes a long time. When your case takes longer, like 10-20 days. This means that the visa will be refused. It has only happened in very few cases where the visa has been approved after an extended processing period. The company checks your profile for background information.

In Pakistan, Singapore visas are in demand according to the latest trends. One of the weird things about the Singapore visa process is that they don't ask for travel history or bank statements. They simply decide based on a letter of intent and a scanned copy of your passport. This is why the outcome of the visa is unpredictable.

The government can sometimes refuse the wife's visa while granting the husband's visa if they are applying for a visa together. The same thing happened to me when I applied once with my family. They refused my visa and approved the visa of my children and my wife.

What are the steps for applying for a Singapore visa from Pakistan?

Singapore visa can be obtained from Pakistan in two ways. You can go to the Honorary Consulate General in Lahore to apply yourself or you can do it through your contact in Singapore. Your contact in Singapore is someone (your friend or relative) who can arrange a letter of intent (letter of introduction) for you. It is a type of invitation letter in which the sponsor will write their details and mention your details to invite you to Singapore.

Apart from the letter of intent, you just need a photo, the completed visa application form, and the photocopy of the biographical data page of your passport. You can find this information on the official Singapore immigration website here. You will also need a photocopy of your CNIC.

The Singapore visa fee is Rs. 16,000 if you apply yourself (along with the Letter of Intent from your friend or relative in Singapore). If you are applying through a travel agency, they may charge a different fee as they will arrange a Letter of Intent for you. We can also organize a letter of intent for you.

After applying for a Singapore visa in Lahore, you will have to wait for the outcome. In most cases, you will get a decision within 3 business days. In some cases, it will take a long time and you will have to wait. They keep your passport but I think you can get your passport back if you need it for another task. Because they keep the passport with them for no reason (the visa is applied for online).

Singapore Visa Tips for Pakistani Citizens

I will give you some important tips about a Singapore visa. I visited Singapore recently and got a visa twice. The first piece of advice I can give you is to mention a few days in the application. Singapore is a small country that can be explored easily in 3-4 days. If you mention 10 days it won't make sense and most likely they will refuse your visa.

I will personally mention 5 days to visit Singapore. The second thing is to try to get a Letter of Intent from a friend or relative in Singapore. If you don't have a friend or relative in Singapore, find someone who knows someone in Singapore. If you cannot find someone then as a last resort please contact us so we can arrange a letter of intent for you in Singapore.

The letter of intent and visa will cost you between 10,000 and 15,000 rupees these days and if refused, all that money is gone. The odds of success are 50/50, so make sure you are prepared to lose 10,000-15,000 PKR when your visa is rejected. I say this because many visas have been refused despite having a valid Letter of Introduction (LOI) from Singapore. The visa is not guaranteed.

Let us provide you with a Letter of Introduction (LOI) and Singapore visa information

We can provide you with a Singapore visa service. We will arrange a Singapore introduction letter for you and the sponsor will apply for your Singapore visa. The tracking number you receive will allow you to track your visa online. You won't have to go anywhere to pick up the visa because it's Evisa. An email will be used to send you the visa once it has been approved. If the visa is rejected, the money is not refunded.
