Essentials about Singapore…

Useful Information for those going to Singapore

20 °C

We decided to gather some general info about Singapore that will help us to avoid unpleasant surprises during the trip.

• Singapore is one of 4 city states in the world
• It is located just 85 miles from the equator, so the weather is much the same all year round
• Singapore has 4 official languages: Malay (national), English (Main), Chinese and Tamil
Currency is Singapore Dollar; 1 SGD = 0.83 CAD

Canadians entering Singapore require following documentation:

• Valid Canadian passport, the expiry date must be at least 6 months after arriving to Singapore; local law is very strict about this rule
• Tourist visa is not required prior to arrival to Singapore; a 30-day tourist visa is purchased in the airport plus the visa can be extended up to 90 days if necessary
• All tourists must have an onward (in our case return) tickets and may be asked to show proof of sufficient funds for the stay in the country
