Most visitors to Singapore do not require a visa for entry. For more information on visa requirements and the Visa Free Transit Facility, you can check with the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority or the Singapore Overseas Mission closest to you. The period of stay granted will be shown on the visit pass endorsement in your passport.
Note: We advise participants who require entry visa to contact their local travel agent, or apply for their visas at least 30 days before the conference. It is the participant’s responsibility to apply for a valid entry visa on their own. The organiser is unable to apply for entry visa on behalf of the participant and can only assist in providing the invitation letter.
Singapore is much more than the sum of its numerous attractions. It’s constantly evolving, reinventing, and reimagining itself, with people who are passionate about creating new possibilities. It’s where foodies, explorers, collectors, action seekers, culture shapers, and socialisers meet and new experiences are created every day. The city is fuelled by passion and pride. Around every corner, incredible experiences are being crafted, cooked, painted, designed, grown or built by locals who share a common trait: passion. Like them, you’ll be empowered to do what you love in this city of limitless possibilities. The story of Singapore is one of trials, tribulations and triumphs. In a short span of just over 50 years, it has evolved from a colony to a city-state with its own unique identity, forged by a spirit of never settling. And it’s this spirit that’s imbued into the architectural wonders, lush parks, proud heritage, world-class attractions and amazing food of the cosmopolitan metropolis you see today.
