Effective November 8, 2021, vaccinated U.S. citizens and LPRs should be prepared to present documentation of their vaccination status along with their negative COVID-19 test result taken within three days of their flight. Any U.S. citizens and LPRs who cannot demonstrate proof of full vaccination must show documentation of a negative COVID-19 viral test taken within one day (not three days) of departure to the United States.
All foreign national air travelers holding non-immigrant visas to the United States, with very limited exceptions, must show proof of full vaccination status along with their negative COVID-19 test result taken within three days of their departing flight.

U.S. Embassy Singapore has limited visa appointment availability to maintain appropriate social distancing for the safety of our applicants and staff. There may be increased wait times for visa services due to capacity constraints.
If you need to travel to the U.S. urgently, please make a regular appointment for the next available business day and then request an expedited appointment in any visa category for an earlier day. You must make a regular appointment before submitting an expedite request. Priority will be given to students, workers in critical infrastructure sectors, and applicants who can demonstrate an emergency travel need. Requests should be detailed and be substantiated by evidence as appropriate (e.g., I-20, doctor’s letter, etc.)
