Resumption of Visa-Free Entry into China for Singaporeans After Three-Year Hiatus

China resumes 15-day visa-free entry for citizens of Singapore and Brunei, fostering regional ties and closer relations after a 3-year suspension due to COVID-19.

Travelling to China? Here’s What You need to Know About the Visa-Free Entry

Starting from Wednesday (Jul 26), citizens of Singapore and Brunei will once again be able to enjoy 15 days visa-free entry to China for various purposes, including business trips, sightseeing, visiting relatives and friends, and transiting through the country. This decision marks a positive step forward in facilitating people-to-people exchanges and enhancing bilateral cooperation between the respective nations.

The suspension of the 15-day visa-free facility had been in place since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, leading to disruptions in travel plans and affecting people-to-people exchanges between China, Singapore, and Brunei. With the global health situation improving, China has resumed issuing tourist visas since March 2023.

Do note that if you’re spending more than 15 days in China, you will still need to apply for a visa. For more information about visa application, click here.
