There is a large population of Pakistani citizens living in the kingdom of United Arab Emirates. They are only living in UAE for work or business, and continue to hold their Pakistani citizenship. If they want to travel to Singapore, the rules are little bit different. The following information will guide you on the documents requirement, and the steps that need to be taken for obtaining a Singapore visa.
Application Form – An online link has been provided by the Singaporean Government from where you can download this form for free. There are certain third party service providers, such as www.singaporevisa.ae, which also provide the form for free and make the process whole lot easier by managing everything from start to end on your behalf. You can also visit our Head or Branch Office in UAE, where you can obtain this form.
Passport – Please ensure your Pakistani passport is ready and up-to-date. You are required to keep your passport valid up to six months from the date you are going to travel to Singapore. If not, your visa application can be rejected. Hence, ready your Pakistani passports according to the rules.
Passport Size Photograph – You need two 2X2 inch colour photographs. Your face should be clearly visible. Religious headgear is allowed as long as it is not covering your face.
Proof of Legal Status – Provide documents and photocopies of documents showing you have citizenship of Pakistan and UAE. If you do not have UAE citizenship, provide proof that you are legally in the country through documents like UAE work visa, etc.
Itinerary or Round Trip Tickets – You will have to provide photocopies of your itinerary or the photocopy of your round trip flight tickets. Either of the documents need to have your name on them.
Permission Letter – If you are employed, you need a permission letter from your employer on their official letterhead giving you permission for the leave, complete duration of leave, reason for the trip, and assurance that you will return back to the job. If you are a student, you will need an official letter from your school/ college declaring you to be in good standing and that you are registered for and will be returning for the next semester. If you are retired, please submit photocopies of your retirement fund.
