Singapore has long been a top tourism destination for Indians, and visiting the Garden City has just got easier. Indian nationals who are in transit in Singapore, and possess a valid visa to select countries, now have the option of visa-free entry to Singapore for a stay of up to four days.

To be eligible for the visa-free transit, Indian passengers must have a valid onward air ticket for a flight departing Singapore within the next 96 hours, in addition to a valid visa or long-term pass to Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, the U.K., the U.S., Germany, and Switzerland. For travellers on a return journey, this option can only be used on one leg of the trip. More details here.

The free transit stay in Singapore has come just in time for travellers gearing up for the festive break. Make the most of year-end holiday plans with our guides to Singapore’s urban adventures and heritage trails here, its must-try food here, and its charms for travellers in their sixties here.
