Immigration Matters & Accommodation
|Q1||How do I apply for the student pass?|
SMU will apply for the student pass for international students. We will send you the in-principle approval letter for your entry into Singapore when we receive it from the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).
|Q2||Do I have to do medical examination in Singapore?|
A medical examination is required for all student pass applicants. If you are a new applicant and not in Singapore, the medical examination can either be done in your home country or in Singapore by a qualified doctor. The doctor must record and certify the results of the medical examination in the designated medical report form. The medical report should not be issued more than 3 months from the student pass collection date.
|Q3||I am an international student. Where can I find more information about living in Singapore?|
For more information, please refer to this page for International Students.
|Q4||Do I need to cancel my student pass when I graduate from the programme?|
Yes. Students have to surrender their student pass for cancellation at the Student's Pass Unit, 4th floor, ICA Building, or at the checkpoints when departing Singapore. You may download a copy of the cancellation form from the ICA website
|Q5||What if I want to stay in Singapore for some time before returning to my country?|
When you cancel your student pass at ICA, you will be granted a short stay of up to 90 days in Singapore. If you would like to have a longer stay to look for jobs upon completion of the programme, you may wish to submit an application for one-year (non-renewable) long term visit pass (LTVP) at the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA)
