FOR YOUR INFORMATION
1) One can enter Singapore up to the date visa valid ie if Visa expires on 15MAY 2011 person can fly into Singapore up to 15MAY 2011.
2) In case holding a valid Singapore visa you can apply for a New One within 1month of visa expiry date.
i.e if visa expires on 15 MAY 2011 you can apply on or after 15 APR 2011. In case if un aware pax having valid visa and you apply within this period then the new visa which will be granted will be applicable and over write the existing one or will be cancelled.
However if holding valid visa up to 15 MAY 2011 and un aware hence apply before 15 APR 2011 then the visa will be rejected as the holding visa will be considered valid. So its mandatory to check visa validity and not to apply within 1 month
3 ) This is mainly with regards to SINGAPORE GRATIS VISA CASES:
A person who is has a valid Singapore visa on their old passport needs to transfer their visa if holding a new passport. Such transfer visas/ cases are termed Gratis.
However the expiry date on the valid visa should be more than 3 months from the date of application, in order for it to be eligible for Gratis case otherwise they would have to apply as a fresh application.
Example – Valid visa in old passport has an expiry date of 15APR 2011 then we can transfer up to 15JAN 2011 after 15JAN 2011 it will NOT be considered as Gratis.
Now if visa in old passport expiring on 15FEB 2011 we cannot apply as Gratis on 15DEC 2011 as its within 3months.
Also keep in mind if any details from old passport front page such as name / DOB / POB/ passport number differ to new passport front page it will NOT be considered as Gratis, we need to apply as new application. Even if holding valid visa.
