Who Needs A Visa and Who Does Not

  • If you hold an ordinary Bangladeshi passport, you must apply for a visa before arriving in Singapore. In other words, you need to get permission to enter Singapore in advance by going through the visa application process.
  • However, if you have a Bangladeshi Diplomatic or Official passport, you do not need to apply for a visa before traveling to Singapore. You are exempt from the usual visa requirements. This means you can enter Singapore without going through the visa application process due to your diplomatic or official status.

SG Arrival Card

The Singapore SG Arrival Card is like a permission slip for tourists from certain countries who can visit Singapore without a visa. Even though they don’t need a visa, they must get this special permission before they come to Singapore.

To get this permission, they can apply online, and they don’t have to send any paper documents. However, people from Bangladesh cannot get this permission.

Assessment Level II

Assessment Level II in Singapore’s visa system is like a category based on where you’re from. There are two categories: Level I and Level II. If you’re from a Level I country, you can apply for a visa online, and it’s super convenient. You just fill out a form on the internet, and they’ll email your visa to you.

Now, Bangladesh falls under Level II. In this case, things are a bit different.

You can’t do the online application DIRECTLY.  Instead, you might have to go to the Singapore embassy or a visa agent in Dhaka. Then you’ll have to fill out an application form and give them some documents.

It might take up to 2 weeks. Plus, once your visa is ready, you have to go back to the embassy, consulate, or an entry visa center to pick it up.
