Travel Guide to Thailand
If you’re looking to travel to Thailand, there are many ways to get there. You can drive or fly in, or take a boat or train. No matter your preferred mode of transportation, it’s important to know the rules and regulations regarding tourists before entering the country.
The best way to get around Thailand is by plane and train. Many local bus companies also run public buses and long-distance buses. You can purchase tickets in advance through the internet or at a ticket office before boarding your plane or train, which will save you time at the airport or station.
Bus travel is cheaper and more flexible if you have a lot of luggage or don’t mind taking long journeys without any entertainment available on board. Train travel has the advantage of allowing you to see more countryside as well as being fairly comfortable compared with buses; however, trains aren’t always reliable either so make sure your tickets are confirmed before setting off!
Boats are an excellent way for seeing some spectacular scenery while getting from A-to-B – whether it be a river cruise along Thailand’s Chao Phraya River or cruising from one island to another in Southern Thailand’s beautiful Andaman Sea (where we’d recommend stopping at Koh Samui).
The country’s domestic flights are very affordable, so if you want to travel from Bangkok to Chiang Mai or Phuket, then flying would be a good option for you.
The most popular modes of transportation within cities include tuk-tuks (motorized three-wheeled taxis), motorcycle taxis known as “songthaew” (minivans) and songtaews (buses), regular taxis, Uber/Grab car services that use smartphones to connect riders with drivers via text message for payment processing purposes instead of cash payments like traditional cabs do elsewhere around Asia), motorbike rentals etc…
The best time to visit Thailand is from November to February. The weather is pleasant and the temperature is warm, but not too hot. There’s a good chance you’ll see some rain, but it won’t be too much of a problem if you plan on visiting the country during this time.
You might also enjoy traveling to Thailand between May and September, especially if you’re an outdoor enthusiast looking for beach activities or water sports like scuba diving or snorkeling. However, keep in mind that there are two rainy seasons: one in July-August and another in November-December (the latter being more severe).
- Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, is known for its temples and amazing street food.
- Chiang Mai is a great place for nature lovers, with beautiful waterfalls and mountains to hike around. It’s also home to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), which you can climb up to for panoramic views over the city below!
- Phuket has tons going on in terms of festivals, nightlife, and beaches—so much so that it’s often nicknamed “the island of happiness”! If you go during Chinese New Year (which occurs around February 1st), there will be parades with floats featuring dragons moving through town before being burned at midnight; then afterward people dance around burning firecrackers until sunrise! This tropical island has many activities like water sports like scuba diving, snorkeling, and parasailing as well as land-based activities such as hiking through dense jungle trails or exploring its rich history at one of many museums along the way.
- Koh Samui has many resorts that are great for families looking for relaxing beach vacations; however, if you want more thrill than relaxation there are also some amazing scuba diving experiences available here too! Koh Samui is a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand. With its powdery white sand beaches and turquoise waters, it’s no wonder that this island is a popular destination for tourists. The best time to visit this island is during low season when you can get great deals on hotels and flights.
- Krabi is located near various other islands such as Koh Phi Phi Don where there are lots of water sports available including snorkeling trips or hiking along cliffs overlooking Phi Phi Leh Island where one can admire the sunset from above while admiring the beauty surrounding them from below.
You can expect to spend around $50–$120 USD per day in Thailand on your trip. This will cover your transportation costs. The best time to visit this island is during the low season when you can get great deals on hotels and flights, or taxi, accommodations, food, and activities. You can find budget hotels for as low as $15 per night and mid-range hotels for $35–90 per night. If you’re looking for luxury accommodations and want to splurge a little more on your trip I would recommend staying at the Shangri-La in Bangkok which has an awesome rooftop bar with a stunning view of the city!
In Thailand, especially in the larger cities, food is incredibly affordable. Street food can be purchased for as cheap as $1, but if you want a very hearty lunch, expect to pay $3 per meal. If you only eat Thai cuisine in good local restaurants, the worth of meals will cost you up to $10.
While traveling in Thailand it’s best to have cash on hand so that you don’t get hit with exchange fees when using your card at restaurants or shops. Some places do accept cards but they may charge up to 5% extra which can add up quickly if you’re spending more than $100 USD each day! The currency used is the Thai Baht (THB). While there aren’t any ATMs that accept foreign debit cards yet so make sure that you bring enough cash into the country before leaving home!
Budget between $20 to $40 (around 1000 bath to 1500 bath) each day if you’re a backpack traveler. Using public transit to go around, sleeping in a dorm room, eating food from street vendors, having a few drinks daily, and participating in generally free or inexpensive activities like swimming, hiking, and resting on the beach are all possible on this budget.
If you’re a mid-range traveler and still want to enjoy good food in restaurants you can budget $40 to $100 (1500 bath to 3200 bath). You can travel between cities by train or low-cost flight, stay in a private hostel room or guesthouse with air conditioning, eat a few meals at Western or sit-down restaurants, or rent a motorcycle or scooter.
For luxury travellers, the budget is unlimited. You can expect to spend more than $100 per day. But no worries, Thailand is one of the most affordable prices and value money for traveling in Asia.
Thailand is known for its delicious cuisine. Thai food is one of the best in the world, and there are several reasons why. Thai cuisine has a lot of variety because it’s influenced by many different cultures and cooking styles—from neighboring countries like Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia and Burma; from Thailand’s former colonies like Vietnam; from India through its use of spices; and from China through wok techniques.
Thai food can be spicy or mild depending on what you order at a restaurant or buy at the market (in Thailand). If you’re not used to spicy foods then try ordering something that’s not spicy first before trying anything else!
The main ingredients used in Thai cooking are fresh herbs like basil leaves (for example), chilies (especially red ones), lemongrass stalks and roots which add flavor to soups/stews called “Tom Yum”/”Tom Kha Kai.” This soup is made with seafood broth along with tomatoes – if you eat meat then there’ll be some chunks added too!
When you are traveling in Thailand, it is important to be aware of the inherent risks and how to avoid them. It is also important to remember that Thailand is a very safe country overall and most trips will be trouble-free.
- Avoid scams by not believing everything you hear and never giving up your passport as collateral for any service offered on the streets.
- Stay away from drugs: Though illegal in Thailand, drug use remains rampant among tourists due to its easy availability at clubs and bars. If you do decide to indulge, be sure that it’s something you can handle (e.g., don’t take anything if you’re not familiar with it), and always have someone nearby who knows what’s going on in case something bad happens!
- When traveling alone, make sure someone knows where exactly where they should meet up if anything goes wrong or makes them uncomfortable—whether that means calling home during long bus rides or making sure they have a friend who can take them home safely after being out late at night.
You’ve decided to travel to Thailand, but not sure what to expect. Here are some things you should know before traveling to this beautiful country:
- What to wear: In Thailand, it’s very hot and humid during the summer months (March-May). Jeans and long pants are recommended for men and women. Women should bring shorts that cover their bum–you’ll be amazed at how many women do not follow this rule! And don’t forget plenty of sunscreens!
- What to pack: Make sure you pack comfortable shoes or sandals for when you’re sightseeing; flip flops also work well on airplanes, buses, etc… You’ll want a nice bathing suit too because Thailand has some beautiful beaches! Don’t forget your camera–there are so many amazing places in Thailand that will make great photos!
- What to expect: If you have never been on an adventure trip before then this is the perfect time for one because everything is included–your flights, transportation between cities (by plane), meals while we’re away from our hotels/ guesthouses eating local food etc…
Most countries can travel to Thailand without a visa, but you need to check the requirements of your specific nationality. The following countries are granted visa-free travel to Thailand for a period of up to 45 days.
Andorra, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bahrain, Brunei, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, Monaco, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, The Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovak, Slovenia, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, UAE, UK, USA, Brazil, Republic of Korea, Peru, Hong Kong, Vietnam.
If you do need a visa, you must apply for it before traveling to Thailand.
If you are eligible for e-visa, it is recommended that you apply online instead of through an embassy or consulate in another country. The cost varies depending on your nationality and where you apply.
At the airport, you might need to provide primary identification documents as well as ticket proof that you will leave Thailand within 45 days from the arrival date.

Travel Guide to Indonesia
The first thing to know is that Indonesia is a huge country, with many airports and even more islands. Most people will want to fly into the capital city of Jakarta or Bali, which is where most flights leave from and arrive in. But if you can’t find what you want there, there are plenty of other options. For example, if you want to go somewhere else in Southeast Asia (or even Australia or New Zealand), then flying into Denpasar is probably your best bet.
Additionally, there are international airports in the archipelago at Medan, Makassar, Manado, Padang, Surabaya, and Yogyakarta, with connections primarily to airports in Southeast Asia.
Indonesia has ferry connections with Singapore and Malaysia for boat entry.
If you’re visiting Sumatra or Java but don’t have time for a long trip on land between cities, there are also plenty of flights available for those locations as well. And if one island isn’t enough for your trip—or maybe two islands just aren’t enough—you can always get around Indonesia by boat!
We recommend that you take public transport (metro) from the airport because it’s cheaper than taking an airport transfer service provided by taxi companies at the airport. Also, if you take public transport (metro), you don’t need to worry about traffic jams because metro stops running late at night unlike taxis which can be expensive during rush hours because they charge extra fees during rush hours!
While you can use public transportation such as buses, trains and planes for getting around Indonesia, it is often much more affordable to rent a car or motorbike. In fact, renting a car or motorbike is one of the best ways to get around Indonesia because they are more comfortable than public transportation. Moreover, driving yourself gives you the freedom to stop whenever and wherever you like without having to adhere to a schedule and allows you to see Indonesia at your own pace.
Boat tours are another great way of seeing some of Indonesia’s most popular destinations while saving money on accommodation costs. There are many boats that travel along different rivers throughout the country which makes it easy for tourists who prefer this mode of transport over land-based transportation options such as buses or trains due to their higher capacity levels when compared to other modes.
The best time to visit Indonesia is from April to October when the weather is warm and humid. This is because it’s the rainy season in Indonesia. The driest period is December through February, which is also known as the cool dry or dry season.
If you love sunbathing on beaches or swimming in clear waters, then visiting during this time will be ideal for you. During these months, cruise ships are not allowed to enter certain ports due to rough seas and strong winds.
Java – the world’s most populous island, Java still has to offer much of interest to tourists. The island has a rich culture and history and is home to some of the country’s most famous attractions, including the Borobudur and Prambanan temples in Central Java.
Bali – Indonesia’s most popular tourist destination and an ideal destination for families with children due to its many activities, beaches, bars and clubs.
Sulawesi – home to over 5% of Indonesia’s species but less than 1% of its human population means it’s a place where you have good chances at seeing exotic wildlife such as pygmy elephants and other rare creatures that are not found elsewhere in Indonesia or even Southeast Asia as a whole!
Sumatra – it’s home to Mount Kerinci which at 3408 meters is one of a few peaks that tower above all others in Indonesia plus it also contains many protected areas where visitors can see untouched jungle landscapes without having any problems caused by large crowds (even though some places are getting pretty crowded now).
Kalimantan – Borneo Island has many beautiful locations like Danau Sentarum National Park with its mangrove forests or Bukit Lawang Wildlife Reserve with its natural habitat for endangered Orangutans; both locations are extremely popular among nature lovers from around the world because they offer experiences like no other place does on Earth!
Maluku – located within easy reach from Sulawesi via airplane makes this small archipelago quite attractive for those who want something more than just jumping from one beach resort into another one every day during their vacation time here on Bali Island (although there are tons of fantastic resorts available here too!).
- Hike Mount Bromo.
- Chill on the beaches of Gili Islands.
- Visit Lake Toba.
- Explore the jungle in Gunung Leuser National Park.
- Check out the floating stilt houses in Kalimantan.
- Do yoga with a view in Bali.
- Meet the Komodo dragons.
- Go snorkeling in the Similan Islands.
- Explore the caves at Gunung Mulu National Park.
- Trek Mount Rinjani.
- Get your adrenaline pumping at a waterpark in Jakarta.
- Explore the islands of Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan.
- Visit orangutans at Camp Leakey in Tanjung Puting National Park.
The travel cost in Indonesia is relatively low, given the country’s size and its many attractions. You can get by with $40 per day on your trip, but if you want to live like a king, you can easily spend $100+ per day without even trying.
Taxis are cheap in Jakarta (and other cities) and public transportation (buses) is inexpensive as well. However, most people who visit Indonesia opt for a car rental or use GrabTaxi (the local equivalent of Uber).
Accommodation in Indonesia ranges from $5/night dorm beds to $200+ per night in luxury hotels. There’s no need to stay at expensive places unless you want to spoil yourself or treat yourself to a special occasion.
Indonesia is one of the most popular destinations in Southeast Asia. It’s also one of the most affordable places to visit in the region. You can spend as little as $20 per day on food alone if you’re traveling on a budget.
Indonesia Travel Budget suggested:
- Food and drink: $20-$40/day
- Accommodation: $10-50/night for hotels, hostels or guesthouses
- Tours and activities: $5-25/day
- Shopping: $5-15 for souvenirs (e.g., batik cloth), $10-30 for handicrafts, art pieces, paintings and antiques (e.g., woodcarvings)
- Transportation: $2-3/ride in a shared taxi or bemo (public minibus), or take an Ojek (motorcycle taxi) with a driver at around 1,000 rupiahs per km if you can find one who speaks English.
You’ll probably hear the following terms a lot in Indonesia: nasi, ikan and bakso. Nasi refers to rice, ikan means “fish” and bakso is meatballs. While you may be familiar with these dishes on their own, they’re often used as components of more complex meals in Indonesia.
The cuisine of this country is quite interesting because it’s a blend of Chinese, Indian and Malay cuisine. On top of that, Indonesian food has been influenced by the cuisines of India and Europe too!
Indonesians are very proud of their food and you’ll notice lots of restaurants serving classic dishes like fried rice or rendang (spicy coconut curry). If you want something more adventurous try tempeh (fermented soybean cake) served with spicy peanuts sauce or soto ayam – chicken soup with noodles!
If you love food and want to try some unique flavors while visiting Indonesia, check out this list of top 9 Indonesian foods you must eat in Indonesia:
1. Soto Betawi
2. Nasi Padang
3. Bakso (Meatball Soup)
4. Bubur Ayam (Fried Rice with Chicken)
5. Ayam Goreng Kuning (Yellow Fried Chicken)
6. Es Teler (Noodle Soup)
7. Rujak Cingur (Spicy Fruit Salad)
8. Mie Goreng (Fried Noodles)
9. Lontong Cap Go Meh (Rice Cake with Eggplant Stewed in Coconut Milk)
Although alcohol in Indonesia might be a major problem in Indonesia, there is no need to live in fear of it in urban areas. Anker and Bintang, two beers made in the area, are widely accessible. Consume with caution as spirits are less commonly consumed in public and may theoretically be unlawful. However, home-brewed beverages are frequently offered for sale in villages.
- Don’t travel alone.
- Don’t carry too much cash.
- Don’t wear expensive jewelry.
- Don’t leave your valuables in your hotel room or in your car—especially if you are driving a rental vehicle, as these are often targeted by thieves.
- If possible, avoid walking around late at night, especially if you’re alone and/or don’t know the area well; some areas of the cities can be unsafe after dark.
- Do not eat unripe fruit, as it can cause diarrhea.
- Avoid swimming in the ocean, especially after heavy rainfall and during typhoon season (June to December).
- Don’t travel alone at night. It’s best not to walk alone at any time of day if you are female, but especially at night when the threat of harassment is higher. If possible, always travel with other people or take a taxi for safety reasons (even if it is more expensive).
- It’s also important that you avoid traveling to the highlands (over 2,000 metres) during the rainy season (October–February), as landslides are common and roads can become impassable without warning. And don’t forget: no public transport after dark!
Indonesia is a popular tourist destination, so it has relaxed its visa requirements in recent years. Citizens of most countries are allowed to enter Indonesia without a visa, provided they have an onward or return ticket and sufficient funds for their stay in Indonesia (approx USD $20 per day).
However, there are still some countries from which you will need to get an Indonesian visa before you fly there. These include:
- Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Maldives, Myanmar (except for those traveling on humanitarian grounds)
Visitors to Indonesia must hold a valid passport issued by their home country and remain in good health. If you have a criminal record or are deemed a security risk, you may be denied entry into Indonesia.
You’ll also need to provide proof of onward travel out of Indonesia after your visit – this can be an onward ticket or simply photocopies showing that you have booked flights/trains within 30 days of departing Indonesia. The length of stay allowed with a tourist visa depends on where you’re from: 30 days for EU citizens; 60 days for US citizens; 90 days for Australians and Canadians; and up to 180 days for other nationalities.

Travel Guide to Singapore
The best way to travel to Singapore is by plane. From Changi Airport, you can take the MRT/ Taxi to your hotel. If you come from Malaysia and have time on your hand, you can then take a taxi or bus across the border at Johor Bahru (JB) where there are cheap buses that will take you straight through Singapore.
You can get around Singapore easily and quickly by public transport. The public transport system in Singapore is efficient and reliable, with an extensive network of buses, trains, and taxis.
There are many different types of public transport in Singapore:
- MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) is a rail network that covers most of the island. It has four lines: North-South Line, East-West Line, Circle Line, and Bukit Panjang LRT Line.
- Buses are available on major routes to areas not covered by MRT stations or where there may not have been enough demand to justify building an underground train station at ground level. Buses also serve as feeder services for railway lines that extend beyond their boundaries – for example, bus services 61 & 62 which connect Woodlands Regional Bus Interchange with Kranji MRT Station via Woodlands Road; or service 94 which connects Hougang Central Bus Terminal with Pasir Ris Bus Interchange along Upper Serangoon Road, Lorong Chuan Avenue & Hougang Avenue 3A/3B
- Grab or Taxi might be expensive but if you don’t might pay a little bit of money, it’s the fast and most convenient way to go from A to B destination in Singapore.
The best time to visit Singapore is from October until April when it’s not too hot and not too rainy. The peak season for tourism in Singapore is in April, so you can expect higher room rates and higher crowds during this time. If you’re looking to save money on your trip, the off-peak months between May through September are your best bet.
If you’re looking for the best areas to stay in Singapore, look no further than Chinatown. The area is located right in the heart of the city and is filled with tons of delicious food options, boutique shops, and great nightlife.
If you’re traveling as a family or group then try staying in Sentosa. Located just south of mainland Singapore, Sentosa has plenty for kids to do including Universal Studios Singapore and Resorts World Sentosa (where you can ride roller coasters).
If you’re traveling as a couple or on your own then head over to Clarke Quay or Boat Quay where there are tons of bars and restaurants within walking distance from each other that make it easy for one-person groups! And if you need some alone time after dinner there are always taxis available at their stations nearby.
If you’re planning on visiting Singapore, here are some things not to miss:
The Singapore Zoo and Night Safari – The Singapore Zoo opened in 1973 and has since become an important part of Singapore’s tourism industry. It houses more than 2,500 animals from around the world, including tigers, rhinos and orangutans. The Night Safari houses different species at night so they can be observed while they’re active. For example, if you see a tiger during the day it might be asleep!
If you want to see animals or enjoy nature, then you should go to Jurong Bird Park or Gardens by the Bay. These parks have many different kinds of plants and flowers from all over Asia that are beautiful to look at as well as being educational about plants from other countries than just your own country (like America).
If you like amusement parks like Disneyland then Universal Studios Singapore would be perfect for you! There are rides like “Revenge of the Mummy” where riders get chased by mummies while inside an Egyptian pyramid ride complete with live actors dressed up like ancient Egyptians trying to torture them!
You can visit museums and art galleries or go on a boat tour around the city or even take a trip up a cable car to see some spectacular views over the city. If you’re looking for something more adventurous then why not try bungee jumping off a bridge or zip lining across skyscrapers?
Singapore, you are a melting pot of cultures and cuisines. The island has been influenced by Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Western cultures to create its unique cuisine. If you’re looking for delicious local food that won’t break the bank, the best way to discover the food in Singapore is to take a walk around the city and enjoy the local cuisine.
Here are some of the most popular dishes to try while visiting this beautiful country:
Hawker food is basically street food in Singapore. It consists of stalls in small roadside shops or in large open-air markets called hawker centers. Hawkers sell all sorts of traditional dishes like satay (grilled meat on skewers) and bak chor mee (minced pork noodles).
Hainanese Chicken Rice – This Hainanese dish is considered to be one of the national dishes of Singapore, and for good reason. It consists of chicken cooked in a savory sauce and served with rice cooked in chicken stock. The chicken is cooked until it’s tender and juicy on the inside, while the skin turns out crispy and golden brown on the outside. The rice is infused with chicken stock, giving it a flavourful taste.
Chilli Crab – This dish is a must-try for those visiting Singapore because it’s one of the most popular local dishes here! The main ingredients are crabs marinated in chili paste before being fried or boiled, then served with chili sauce which has been infused with garlic, ginger, and spring onions. The chili crab can be eaten as an appetizer or as part of a meal together with steamed rice and vegetables like cabbage or cucumber.
Laksa – Laksa is another popular Singaporean dish that consists of noodles served in a spicy coconut milk soup with fish cakes or tofu puffs added into it along with some other ingredients like curry leaves, bean sprouts and birds eye chilies (depending on how spicy you want your laksa).
The oyster omelette at Chairman Restaurant has become a staple on the menu since it opened in 2011, and that’s because it tastes as good as it looks! This dish is made up of fresh oysters that are pan-fried till golden brown before being layered on top of an egg omelette along with some Japanese mayonnaise for extra flavor. It’s then served with finely sliced cucumber on top for added crunchiness and sweetness!
- Food: While food costs can be higher in Singapore than elsewhere, eating out isn’t prohibitively expensive. A meal at a hawker center or food court should cost no more than $10 per person while eating at a Western restaurant will likely be closer to $20. The price of alcohol is high here; expect to pay around $5 for a pint of beer and up to $30 for a cocktail.
- Transport: Public transport in Singapore is convenient and inexpensive – you can get around very well on foot or by taking the subway for just $2-$3 each way.
- Taxi fares are quite reasonable as well, but if you’re traveling with large bags/luggage then it may not be much cheaper than taking public transport anyway. If you’re going to rent a car during your stay, bear in mind that petrol costs around $1 per liter (about 30 cents per gallon). A typical taxi ride across town will cost between $3-7 depending on where it starts and ends.
- Accommodation: Visitors should know that hotel rooms are often pricey in Singapore due to high demand – expect anything from SGD120 ($90) upwards per night if staying near the city center.
- Tours & Activities: There are plenty of sightseeing opportunities at all levels here so don’t worry about having anything fun planned! You could visit Sentosa Island via cable car or monorail (with entry fee included), explore Jurong Bird Park with its hundreds of species of birds (admission fee), go whale watching off Marina Bay Sands Skypark Tower (upgraded tickets required), savor authentic street food stalls along Chinatown Street Food Street…
Singapore is a safe country to travel. However, there are some things to avoid in Singapore:
- Scams – Singapore is a country that has low crime rates, but this does not mean you won’t encounter any scams while traveling here. It’s best to be wary of anyone who tries to offer you something for free if it seems too good to be true. Also beware of people who approach you on the street and ask for directions or other favors, since they can sometimes use this as an opportunity to rob you or take advantage of your kindness.
- Tourist traps – Another thing that tourists should watch out for when visiting Singapore are tourist traps such as inflated taxi fares and overpriced restaurants near tourist attractions like Chinatown.
Singapore is a small country but it has a diverse population. You will find many different ethnicities here, each with its own culture and traditions. When visiting this country, try to learn about them so you can understand more about their way of life and appreciate their culture better.
Singaporeans are very friendly people who love meeting new people from different backgrounds and cultures. If you want to make friends while traveling through Singapore, it is best if you strike up conversations with locals by asking questions about their culture or traditions so that they feel comfortable talking to you about them!
Respect the laws. Singapore has strict rules regarding drug use, possession, and trafficking. Foreigners caught violating these rules will be deported immediately without any chance of appeal or pardon. Foreigners who carry drugs knowingly or unknowingly may also be arrested and detained by authorities until they submit themselves to rehabilitation programs under supervision.
Citizens of many countries do not need a visa to enter Singapore for tourism, business, or transit purposes. For more information about the visa-free entry requirements for your country visit Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.
Visitors who require visas may apply online through VFS Global but will need to pay an additional service fee along with their application fee.
Visa on arrival is available at all major airports in Singapore and allows visitors to stay in the country for up to 30 days with only one entry allowed during the period of their stay. Visitors must have valid travel documents including a passport valid at least six months past their intended departure date from Singapore and proof of return flight tickets within 30 days after arrival (extendable). Visa seekers are also required to submit biometric data such as fingerprints and photos when applying under this program; this information will be stored digitally in order to facilitate future visits should they qualify again later on down the road!
