If your daughter didn't use vftf facility before with the current Australian Visa, she is perfectly eligible for it now. Vftf is one time thing.

Is the Vftf facility allows us to stay in the hotels in Singapore city instead of the air port and shopping is permitted or not. Is it possible to check in our baggage in Singapore again if our transit time is 44 hours.

Yes, you can exit the airport under the VFTF. The purpose of VFTF is to allow transiting passengers fulfilling certain conditions to do a short visit to Singapore without a visa. No one is expected nor allowed to stay in the airport for 96 hours.

David v, you already have an ongoing thread discussing the same issue. Please do not post in multiple threads as this splits the discussion on different threads, making it harder for everyone to follow.

For nationals of CIS countries, the wording on ICA website suggests that VFTF is available for both forward and return legs. As with all entries, the VFTF is granted at the discretion of the immigration officer at the border. Given what you have described in your other thread, I think you are better off contacting ICA for an official explanation.

Hi All,

I went through the above post, but was not able to ascertain which category of Australian visa is considered as valid visa for the VFTF visa. The guideline on the sing immi website is very broad - it states as long as the visa is valid and lets you enter the country.

I am currently holding a Bridging visa B from Aus and travelling to Singapore with an Indian Passport for a night's stay, so am I elaigible for the Singapore VFTF facility? Anyone in a similar situation who successfully availed the VFTF facility on Bridging visa B from Aus?

sandeep3004, hi

If you are traveling to singapore and singapore is your final destination, you are not eligible for vftf ( with any type of Australian Visa). Vftf is for transit passengers only, for those who connect in singapore, not travel to singapore.

You need to apply for a visit Visa to Singapore with full package of required documents from the country of your residence.

sandeep3004, you are better off contacting ICA directly about your eligibility to utilize the VFTF.
