Is the Singapore Visa Free for Tajikistan Citizens?

Goh Jun Cheng

Tajikistan citizens need to obtain an appropriate visa before travelling to Singapore.

Key points:

  • Tajikistan and Singapore do not have a bilateral visa waiver agreement.
  • Tajikistan is not included in Singapore’s visa-free access program.
  • Tajikistan nationals cannot obtain a visa upon landing in Singapore.
  • To legally enter and stay in Singapore, Tajikistan citizens must apply for and receive a valid visa in advance.

Types of Singapore Visas

Tajikistan nationals have these main options for Singapore visas:

  • Tourist Visa – For vacations and short trips, valid up to 30 days.
  • Business Visa – For attending meetings, conferences, training. Valid to 3 months.
  • Employment Pass – For skilled workers and professionals seeking to work in Singapore. Strict eligibility rules.
  • Student Pass – For full-time students at Singapore schools and universities.
  • Permanent Residence – For long-term relocation and potential citizenship. Difficult to obtain.

Conclusion

Tajikistan citizens still need to apply for and obtain the proper visa before travelling to Singapore. They are not eligible for visa-free entry like citizens of certain developed countries.

Hopefully in the future, Tajikistan nationals may gain visa-free access to Singapore, but currently advance visa application is required. Check with the Singapore embassy for the latest requirements and application procedures.
