Indians traveling to the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Switzerland, Japan, Germany, Australia and New Zealand via Singapore International Airport are all eligible for the 4-day visa-free transit facility.
Along with Indians, Singapore allows Visa-Free Transit Facility (VFTF) to nationals of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Georgia, the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Turkmenistan, and Ukraine.
If you are a National of India (carrier of an Indian passport), you will be eligible for the 96-hour VFTF if you meet the following requirements –
