Did anyone successfully get visa with "Singapore Visa Online" agent?

@vd p

Just go through authorized visa agent (s) mentioned on the embassy site.

hello.. the problem indeed is not solved in the posts here.

the authorized "Singapore Visa Online" agent will only process visa for specific nationals. for example indian nationals working in Dubai. in their case "Singapore Visa Online" agent will not accept their case as India is not mentioned in their list of accepted nationalities. so "Singapore Visa Online" agent is not an option

Indian embassy in UAE will try to avoid this as well and ask them to goto hotel to get the letter and the hotel in no way will give an LOI.

so it is indeed almost impossible for Indians in Dubai to visit singapore on a holiday. I even spoke with Singapore embassy in India reporting this problem and they did wonder why such a requirement is forced upon passengers going on a holiday but they couldn't do much as its not their jurisdiction.

@craazytraveller

Go with your application through authorized visa agents based in INDIA. The list is on the singapore embassy in Delhi page.

Then use a visa agent based in the UAE, if you are based in the UAE.

Visa page on the website of the Consulate-General of Singapore in Dubai:

Hello,

I applied for Singapore tourist visa and I don’t have any contact of Singapore citizen or permanent resident through whom I can get form V39A. Even the hotel denied for providing me one.

As per Singapore visa documents, one either need V39A from a contact in Singapore or the itinerary and hotel stay proofs. I did provided my itinerary and hotel stay along with my application but the Singapore consulate general still asks me for form V39A!!

Can you please help me solve my problem?

Ronak P, as mentioned many times in this thread, when you don't know anyone in Singapore, you should apply through an authorised visa agent in your country of residence.

Ronak P, nobody will be willing to provide the form v39A to a complete stranger. As mentioned, you have to go to an authorized visa agent in India to get your visa.
