The student receives the offer letter along with the student visa kit. This contains a student contract form and the form 16 for visa. Student then completes all documentation accordingly and submits the file to the agent who further couriers the same to the university where the student has applied. The institute on behalf of the student applies for the student pass. This can be done online by the institute using the SOLAR system.
The application for the visa must be submitted two months before the commencement of the academic session. At the end of this period, successful students are issued an in-principle approval letter by the ICA, which includes the student’s visa. A student may enter Singapore using the ICA letter and complete the remaining formalities at the ICA Building in Singapore. At this stage, students need to furnish the following documents:
- Student’s valid passport
- One passport size color photograph (on white background)
- A duly signed copy of eForm 16
- A copy of the in-principle approval letter
- Copy of Academic documents
