The student visa for Singapore is relatively straightforward and in most cases the study visa for Singapore can be applied by the institute that accepted you. Hence, you may not even have to visit the Consulate or Embassy of Singapore in your home country. You will have to however, show proof that you can pay for your education to the institute where you have applied for admission. The institute will then process your visa application directly in Singapore and when you arrive in Singapore you will have to submit your passport copies, health forms, photographs among other documents.
Singapore follows a very interesting student visa process wherein the institute where you have got admission will apply for your visa with the immigration authorities in Singapore. This process eliminates the need to visit the Singapore Embassy or the Singapore Consulate in your home country.
Complete the application form (e form 16) online and send the institute your financial documents.
The institute where you got admission will fill in your information in the online application system of the Singapore government (SOLAR) after which the in-principle letter (IPL) will be generated.
Once you arrive in Singapore you must visit the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) and submit the e form 16, medical report, passport and disembarkation card, and photograph.
