Nonimmigrant Visas

Applying for a student visa in Singapore? New exceptions to COVID-related travel restrictions mean some applicants may now be able to apply for a visa in their home country, including students from Brazil, China, Ireland, the Schengen Area, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. For more information, please see here. If you have questions about moving your U.S. visa service profile to apply in another country, please contact us here.

The U.S. Mission to Singapore understands that many visa applicants have paid the visa application processing fee and are still waiting to schedule a visa appointment. We are working diligently to restore all routine visa operations as quickly and safely as possible. In the meantime, rest assured that the U.S. Mission will extend the validity of your payment (known as the MRV fee) until December 31, 2021, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the already paid fee. Please continue to monitor this site for information on when we will return to routine visa operations.

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Singapore is responsible for providing visa services to those seeking to enter the United States for a temporary period and for those wishing to take up indefinite or permanent residence in the United States.

Please visit our Global Support Services (GSS) website for complete information on applying for a nonimmigrant U.S. visa, including a directory of nonimmigrant visa categories.
