Is the Singapore Visa Free for Polish Citizens?

Goh Jun Cheng

The good news is that Polish passport holders can enter Singapore visa-free for short-term stays. This guide will outline the visa exemption rule and requirements for Polish citizens visiting Singapore.

Visa Waiver for Poles

As of October 2019, Polish citizens are eligible for visa-free entry into Singapore for tourism and business purposes. The permitted length of stay is:

  • Up to 90 days within a 6 month period
  • For tourism, social visits, or business activities

This applies only for citizens with a valid Polish passport entering Singapore for a short-term stay. Travelers must have an onward ticket and meet standard entry requirements.

Requirements for Visa Waiver

To benefit from the visa exemption, Polish visitors to Singapore must fulfill these criteria:

  • Hold a valid Polish passport – must be valid for at least 6 months
  • Have a return ticket – proof of onward or return travel
  • Sufficient funds – for duration of stay in Singapore
  • Meet entry requirements – such as not having deportation records

As long as these conditions are met, Polish citizens can enter Singapore without applying for a tourist visa in advance.

Visa Needed for Long-Term Stays

It’s important to note this 90-day visa waiver is only for short-term visits. Those looking to live, work, or study long-term in Singapore will need to apply for the appropriate visa, such as:

  • Student Pass
  • Work Pass
  • Dependent’s Pass
  • Long Term Visit Pass

So the visa exemption makes short holiday or business trips easy, but longer stays require standard visas.


Polish citizens can visit Singapore for up to 90 days without applying for a visa, as of October 2019. This provides ample time to explore Singapore on a short holiday while meeting visa waiver requirements. Just be sure to have an onward ticket and sufficient funds.
