A GUIDE FOR OUR STUDENTS, STAFF AND VISITORS

 

PRE-ARRIVAL IN SINGAPORE GUIDELINES

medical-mandatory-COVID-19
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, incoming SP Jain students cannot enter Singapore without the Ministry of Education (MOE)’s approval in addition to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) approval. MOE will only process applications for entry approval about two weeks before the intended travel date.

To help students who plan to travel to Singapore, we have created a guide which includes the details of:

  • The Steps for Entry Approval
  • Serving 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN)
  • Mandatory COVID-19 Swab Test
  • FAQs
 

For more information, you can contact us at sgvisa.covid@spjain.org. We’ll personally assist you with any queries you may have related to Singapore visa, COVID-19 guidelines and safety measures.
