Is the Singapore Visa free for Turkmenistan Citizens?

Goh Jun Cheng

Turkmenistan nationals must obtain a proper visa before travelling to Singapore.

Key details:

  • Turkmenistan does not have a visa waiver agreement with Singapore.
  • Turkmenistan is not included in Singapore’s visa-free access program.
  • Turkmenistan citizens cannot get a visa upon arrival in Singapore.
  • To legally enter Singapore, Turkmenistan nationals must apply for and receive an approved visa in advance.

Singapore Visa Options

Citizens of Turkmenistan have these main visa options:

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


Turkmenistan citizens still need to apply for and obtain the appropriate visa prior to travelling to Singapore. They currently do not qualify for visa-free entry enjoyed by citizens of certain developed nations. Hopefully in the future Turkmenistan nationals may gain visa-free access to Singapore, but for now advance visa application is required.
