Step 1 (About 1.5 months before the intended start of research): Receive Acceptance Letter (email) from NUS Registrar’s Office which includes information on application of Student’s Pass (Visa), and Entry Approval
Step 2 (About 1 month before the proposed start of research): Receive Student’s Pass application outcome from Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA)
This may be more difficult in AY2021/22 Semester 1 due to strict border control measures. Student’s Pass approval cannot be guaranteed by NUS.
Step 3 (Depends on whether travel history and departure destination): Receive Entry Approval (EA) application outcome from Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA)
This may be more difficult in AY2021/22 Semester 1 due to strict border control measures. Approval cannot be guaranteed by NUS. In the event of a rejection, students can attempt a second or third application, if feasible.
The EA will indicate the travel period students can arrive in Singapore. If you cannot arrive in time to start your research with NUS, please write to your NUS supervisor and email@example.com
