“ On May 1, 2022, the U.S. Embassy Singapore will implement a separate appointment channel for visa applicants who are not resident in Singapore. Non-resident visa applicants, such as those on Singapore’s short-term visit pass, must identify themselves as non-resident when scheduling their visa appointments. Appointments will be available to non-residents for all nonimmigrant visa categories, including work, student, crew, and tourist/business.

Singapore citizens and Third Country Nationals who have valid residency permits for Singapore should schedule their appointments as “residents”. Residents include Permanent Residents (PR), Employment Pass (EP) holders, Work Permit holders, Student Pass (STP) holders, S Pass holders, Dependent Pass (DP) holders, and Long-Term Visit pass (LTVP) holders.

Non-resident Third Country National applicants who pay the visa application fee on or after May 1, 2022, must use this new appointment channel. If you schedule your appointment in the incorrect category, you will be required to reschedule. Failure to schedule in the correct appointment category could result in significant travel delays.

In short, if you pay the application fee on or after May 1, 2022, you must schedule a visa appointment in the correct category or you will be asked to reschedule. We are unable to authorize a refund of the MRV fee."

We will not consider expedited appointment requests from Non-Resident visa applicants except for life or death situations. If you are not resident in Singapore and wish to request an expedited appointment, please do so in your country of nationality or habitual residence.

Secretary Blinken, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security, has temporarily expanded the ability of consular officers to waive the in-person interview requirement for individuals applying for a nonimmigrant visa in the same classification. Previously, only those applicants whose nonimmigrant visa expired within 24 months were eligible for an interview waiver. The Secretary has temporarily extended the expiration period to 48 months. This policy is in effect until December 31, 2021. This change will allow consular officers to continue processing certain nonimmigrant visa applications while limiting the number of applicants who must appear at a consular section, thereby reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission to other applicants and consular staff. Travelers are encouraged to review the website of the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate for detailed information on what services are currently available as well as eligibility information and instructions on applying for a visa without an interview.


The The U.S. Mission to Singapore understands that many visa applicants have paid the visa application processing fee and are still waiting to schedule a visa appointment. We are working diligently to restore all routine visa operations as quickly and safely as possible. In the meantime, rest assured that the U.S. Mission will extend the validity of your payment (known as the MRV fee) until September 30, 2023, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the already paid fee.

For more information see Requirement for Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination for Air Passengers.
