Singapore Business Visa

Singapore Business Visa
The first thing to be aware of for the Singapore business visa is that it will not be necessary if you expect your business to have finished within a month. There is a 30 day limit for tourists, business visitors and normal visitors, so even if you’re negotiating a huge contract, you will not require a business visa for Singapore if it concludes within the month.

However, if you intend for your time to exceed the limit then you’ll have to get a Singapore business visa. What is required for this? First of all, your passport must extend beyond the time period you intend to remain in Singapore. Business visa or not, you must be a legal visitor if you expect to be successful in the country. You will also need various identification and supporting documents for your business visa for Singapore, from colour photographs to evidence of your intention to leave. There may be other documents you can show that will speed up the process of getting your business visa for Singapore but you will need to speak to our visa consultants to get an individually tailored strategy.

If you’ve been convicted or have a history of being forcibly removed from countries then you may struggle to get your Singapore business visa. Likewise, there are other contributing factors that can lead to your application for a Singapore business visa.

So if you believe you’re eligible for a visa but aren’t sure of the process, or if you feel you will need extra support to expedite the process and ensure you get your professional Singapore pass quickly and without stress, take the free online assessment and let one of our immigration lawyers do things the right way.

Tips For Vietnam Visa

These tips and advices are drawn from stories of problems and mistakes that many visitors to Vietnam deal with. Read them to avoid any related problems. And share with us your suggestions.

1 - Applying for a new passport can be a tremendously long process so plan well in advance. Sometimes it can take a month to complete. Many travellers had to cancel their trips because their passport is about to expire. Vietnam requires your passport to be at least 1 month valid from the date of exiting the country, and most airlines will require a 6 month validity.
2- Visa on arrival works for air travel only which means you are allowed to pick up your visa at any of the three airports: Hanoi Airport, Danang Airport and Tan Son Nhat Airport in Ho Chi Minh City. You normally do not have to notify your travel agency in advance if you are flying into a different airport than the original one.
3 - If you arrive in Vietnam by land or cruise, you need to apply for a visa in advance at the Vietnamese embassy or consulate.
4 - A 30 day visa extension can be done within 3 days at the Vietnam Department of Immigration Office in either Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. You can also contact a Vietnamese travel agency and request a similar service
5 - It is recommended to carry your passport with you at all time of travel. You will hardly be stopped by police but it is always good to have a personal ID with you.
6 - Check the visa photo requirements in advance to avoid later troubles.
7 - You do not need a transit visa in Vietnam. An onward flight ticket is enough to help you check in the following flight.
