Singapore Student Visa

The Singapore study visa is relatively straightforward and in most cases can be applied for 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, however, have to show proof that you can pay for your education to the institute where you have applied. 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 and other required documents.

Apply for visa

Now that you have everything ready with you, you can apply for your visa application online (SOLAR). You will need to apply for a SOLAR reference number to your university. Once you receive it, you can login to the SOLAR portal and under Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). You should do this as early as allowed as visa applications can take very long to process. We will be filling out your application form online and helping you navigate the process.

Rishi Sawant

Singapore Institute of Management


I have been accepted into SIM and needed guidance for my visa process. I had tried to apply on my own but the process seemed very complicated so I decided to look into counsellors. I searched online and found KGC. They clarified all my doubts and explained the process in detail to me. I knew it was the right place for me because the team was so helpful and always answered any questions I had at any time. I did not have to worry at all because they took care of everything.

Singapore has made it easier for students to study in the country. Instead of a student visa, a student pass is required which confirms that you can study in Singapore as an international student. The Student’s Pass On-Line Application & Registration (SOLAR) is an online system. After you confirm your admission, the university will provide you with the SOLAR reference number and initiate the process.

After receiving the SOLAR reference number, students should login to the SOLAR website and submit the eForm 16 and pay S$30 as the processing fee.

You can travel to Singapore with the In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter issued by the ICA. After arriving in the country, you need to visit the ICA building to finish the formalities and then the Students Pass will be issued to you.

It is recommended that you have all your financial documents like family and personal bank asset statements in place before you apply for the visa. If you don’t have the required finances, you can approach the university for scholarships or trusts which provide scholarships for students. Additionally, you can take a bank loan too. The key is to be able to prove that you have sufficient funds to fund your education and take care of your living expenses.

It is recommended that you start your application a month before your course and Indians require a visa which takes around 10 days to process.
