[UPDATE]New Policy on applying Singapore visa in Malaysia

According to the announcement from Singapore High Commission in Malaysia,from 15th Dec.,2008,all visa applications will be outsourced and start to implement the Submission of Application for Visa Electronically(SAVE) and the High Commission will stop dealing with visa applications directly.

SAVE

There are four official appointed travel agencies for processing the visa application:

  • Global Holidays Sdn Bhd, 2nd Floor Wisma Cosway, Jalan Raja Chulan
  • Look Asia Holidays Malaysia, Menara Melawangi, Pusat Perdagangan Amcorp, Jalan Persiaran Amcorp
  • MP Travel, Jalan Imbi
  • Singapore Visa Application Centre, VFS (M’sia) Sdn Bhd, Amoda Building, Jalan Imbi


The charges of applying visa are as follows:

  • Non-refundable visa processing fee RM71(US$20)
  • service fee RM29(US$8)

I hope with implementation of SAVE,the processing period could be shorten and facilitate the application.For me,the benefits of new policy are:

  1. Get transport easier-I could reach one of the agency by bus directly.No need to get a long travel by LRT+walk to visit the High Commission in KL.
  2. Save time-I only need to submit documents to the agency and it will help me to do the rest of workings.
  3. Less time limitation-previously the High Commission only processes visa application in the morning,but now it could be done during all official hours(normally 9am-5pm).

Thus,it seems to be a hassle-free policy,huh?I will try it next time when I have enough funds travelling to Singapore. πŸ˜€

  1. I'm citizen of Kazakhstan, have a vacation in Malaysia. I want to apply singapore visa. How many days does it take? If i submit it tomorrow, is it possible to be ready the day after tomorrow?

    1. You can apply Singapore Visa from Malaysia travel agency,but it will be much more complicated than applying it in China.It will take 3-4 workings to complete the process.

      Sorry that I’m not travel agency and I can’t help you apply it.

  26. please advise that china citizen holding malaysia tourist visa could apply the singapore visa from K.l?

  27. Hi, im an Indian tourist now in Penang. I want to apply for the Singapore visa from here. Please tell me if there are agents dealing Singapore visa in Penang and their address.

  28. I was rejected a visa to singapore today, I am from Nigeria working as Software Engineer in Malaysia, I called the High Commission and he asking me to provide information of any relative at Singapore which i don’t have the whole thing spoiling my day…Is there any headway to reply he told me to appeal what is the process of this appeal

    1. From my limited knowledge,the appeal will take a lot of time and most of the answers after appeal were negative again.So you’d better to know the reason why they rejected the application and then apply again with some more documents to support.At this point,I think you should have a further conversation with the officer in the high commission,to know what you can do now.

  29. Thanks for your Response..It is not really important but i just feel very bad about it…I must call the High commission again like you said but it seems like the don’t even have any way to track your information..for carrying out loud it is not fare to reject my application this is the first time i will be rejected a Visa into any Country…he could have even call my company to confirm..do you know if the will entertain any discussion with me at the embassy in KL.

    1. Do you mind telling me how you submit your application?Through normal travel agency or the authorised one?I know that feeling,however,I don’t think they will hold a discussion at the embassy as it’s just one of thousands cases.Sometimes,even a not-so-clear form will let you fail to get the visa.So try to talk with the officer inside will just be good.I heard a case that the people just changed a new agency to submit the docs again and it passed.

      1. I’m from Algeria and my wife is Singaporean chinese, i applyed for Singapore visa last march and i got 1 month, then my wife were extending for me , because that time we were not married, since we marry in the 31st of jully , we applyed for long term visit pass plus, but until now aproximatively 2 months they haven’t repply , and they are just granting me 2 weeks social visit pass, then last week when they extended they said maybe its last and i have to leave the country , can i go to JB stay there for few days , then apply for visa and social visit pass again, or i must go to my country again and come back

        PS: last time i cam to KL then i applyed for Singaproe visa from JB, so if i leave , i have to go back to JB

        once i’m there will i be able to reapply for entry visa again?

        please i need your help

        Hope to hear from you soon

          1. As what I know,you still could get your short term visa if you haven’t broken any law in Singapore,however,the final decision is in the officer’s hand.Good luck and wish you could get all things smoothly.

  30. Ok.. I used Global Holiday Authorized agency, Normally my company offer 15day annual leave I’m just planning to use my Leave entitlement cos i cannot carry it over to next year..I want to be sure they have not rejected my Visa as reason of been biased of my Nationality, I wouldn’t mind to write an Agenda letter to my High commission in Singapore, I have a family in Malaysia my wife and Kids which was mentioned in the form..I will try my best to know the reason like you suggested..Thanks again for your time…your blog is interesting..

    1. Thank you.Remembered the cased I just mentioned,that person failed the application submitted by Global Holiday,but passed when being submitted by Singapore Visa Application Centre.If you don’t mind spending some more money,you could try it again.Normally,the officer will not process the application with bias,but they have some sort of guildlines(formed by the past experience) for different nations,maybe a bit stricter than others.Anyway,good luck! πŸ™‚

  31. Hi,
    I am Indian, i work and stay in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I hold Malaysia Employment Pass/work permit.
    I am trying to return from my India visit via Singapore (India –> Singapore –> Malaysia) as my friends stay there and do wish to meet them for 1 or 2 days. I wanted to check, do i require to take Transit Visa for Singapore if i take a small break of 12 hours to 48 hours.

    Thanks.

  32. hello sir, i am from pakistan. but now i am here in malaysia. i am married with malay girl and i have also married permit. but now i want to apply for work in singapore. i want to know can i apply. and what is the way?

    1. Even now you have married permit to stay in Malaysia,you still have to apply working permit of Singapore following the standard procudures for Pakistani.You should get some information from High Commission of Singapore in KL.Good luck!

    1. Definitely no.FYI,some documents for applying working permit in most countries should be provided by the future employer.So you have to find some potential employer there first and then apply your permit.You could search jobs in jobdb or jobstreet website.

    1. The first thing you need to do is to find a job offer from Singapore company.Without it,you could not apply working permit there legally.You could either try to find it by online job seeking websites or pay a visit to Singapore with a travel visa and get some interviews directly there.Hopefully my suggestion could help!

  33. Hi, i am a nigerian, study for my master degree in malaysia and also gave birth to my son in malaysia, i want to travel to singapore for just short visit with my son, pls what are the procedures? thanks

    Recently I am planing to visit Malayasia China & Singapore . I have got Malayasia & China visa . But no time to get Singapore visa from Bangladesh . In this circumstance shall I collect Singapore visa from Mayasia ? If possible then how ?

    1. Hello Ripon. Singapore Visa application has been outsourcing to several application centres(travel agencies) to process. Those centres had been mentioned in the post,however, some details may have been changed. As what I know,I could provide you the link for one of the application centres. You could try to visit/call them for more information.Thanks,

  37. hi,
    greetings!!
    Iam Toha from Bangladesh. Iam planning to visit malaysia and Indonesia. I already purchased return ticket from dhaka to kualalumpore and kualalumpoe to dhaka. what type of malaysian visa is required to visit kualalumpore to bali and bali to kualalumpore then return to dhaka. NB: indonasia gives on arrival visa to Bangladeshi nationals.
    Thanks,
    Toha

    1. Hi Toha, I’m not the expert on this. But from what I know, to your case, you need multiple entry visa. However, what I read from immigration department of Malaysia’s website indicates that only citizens from some countries with social visit purpose can apply for a multi entry visa. Thus, I suggest you to visit High commission office in Dhaka. You can get the detail there. http://www.kln.gov.my/web/bgd_dhaka/home

      I hope it could be a bit helpful.

  38. Hiii
    Is there any authorized Agency for Singapore work permit in Johor Baharu or near by.
    I am from India.
    At present working in Johor.
    Wish to working in Singapore.
    I have 1 year multiple Visa.

    1. Sorry. I don’t have the info about that. However, according to the normal procedure, you should have to find a job in SG first and then the employer will help you to apply for the working permit.
