“ 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.



On October 25, President Biden announced a Presidential Proclamation titled “A Proclamation on Advancing the Safe Resumption of Global Travel During the COVID-19 Pandemic.” This proclamation, which takes effect at 12:01 am Eastern Standard Time on November 8, 2021, will end the travel restrictions under Presidential Proclamations (P.P.) 9984, 9992, 10143, and 10199 as they relate to the suspension of entry into the United States of persons physically present in Brazil, China, India, Iran, Ireland, the Schengen Area, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. In place of these restrictions, the President announced a global vaccination requirement for all adult foreign national travelers. This proclamation applies to persons aboard a flight scheduled to arrive in the United States that departs after 12:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on November 8, 2021. More information about this global vaccination requirement, including details on exceptions and waivers due to humanitarian concerns, is available at Non-U.S. citizen, Non-U.S. immigrants: Air Travel to the United States | CDC.

Pursuant to President Biden’s proclamation, as of November 8, the Department of State can process visa applications for individuals physically present in the affected countries.

Please note that the rescission of these P.P.’s does not necessarily mean that a U.S. Embassy or Consulate is able to immediately schedule all affected applicants for visa interviews. Please see the embassy/consulate website for information on what services they are offering at this time and instructions on how to apply for a nonimmigrant visa here.

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.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requires all air passengers entering the United States to present a negative COVID-19 test (a viral detection test for SARS-CoV- 2 approved or authorized by the relevant national authority), taken within one day of departure. Airlines must confirm the negative test result for all passengers before boarding. Airlines must deny boarding of passengers if they do not provide documentation of a negative test or recovery. This requirement is separate from the visa application process. All Presidential Proclamations restricting travel due to COVID-19 remain in place, and continue to apply to subject potential travelers regardless of their test results or vaccination status. Travelers holding a National Interest Exception also remain subject to all applicable pre-departure testing requirements.
