In addition to obtaining the Student’s Pass or Student’s Pass In-principle Approval from the ICA, international students will also need to obtain approval from the Ministry of Education (MOE) before they commence their journey to Singapore. Each application will be assessed by MOE on a case-by-case basis, and approval is not guaranteed.
NUS will apply for your entry approval with MOE on your behalf, based on your travel plans in the Overseas Travel Declaration (OTD) system. Students should not proceed with their trip to Singapore unless they have received the entry approval letter. Please refer to the registration guide here for more information.
