Student's Pass

All full-time international students are required to hold a valid Student's Pass issued by the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA). Your offer of admission to SUSS is conditional upon your successful application of your Student's Pass. Check the requirements on ICA's website.

A softcopy of the In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter will be sent by email to all international students. You are required to fill out an online eForm 16 and present a copy with a valid passport to the Duty Officer at the Immigration Checkpoint when arriving Singapore.

It is important for you to promptly access the SOLAR system to verify your details in order to not delay your application for the IPA letter and subsequent matriculation to study at SUSS. The SOLAR system can be accessed here.

For international students who do not require an entry visa to Singapore, you will only need to show your passport and disembarkation card to get through Singapore immigration. You can download your IPA letter and present the letter at ICA to collect your Student’s Pass.

For international students who require an entry visa to Singapore, the IPA letter will serve as a single-trip entry visa upon arrival in Singapore. Please show your passport, disembarkation card and the IPA letter to get through Singapore immigration.

Overstaying is a punishable offence under the Immigration Act. Students are to take note of the expiry dates of the IPA letter/Social Visit Pass and complete the formalities in getting the Student's Pass before the period of stay expires. It is also your responsibility to apply for an extension of the Student's Pass at least one (1) month before it expires. A full-time student is deemed to be residing illegally in Singapore if he/she does not have a valid Student's Pass.

According to the conditions stated by ICA, an international student must surrender the Student’s Pass within 7 days of the date of cessation or termination of studies. Those who surrender at ICA (Visitor Services Centre, ICA Building Level 4) will be granted a short term visit pass to allow them to exit the country. If you intend to leave Singapore upon completion of your studies, you may surrender it with a cancellation form to the Immigration Officer at the checkpoint. For students who are overseas, you may return the Student’s Pass and cancellation form to ICA by registered post to the following address:

Officer-In-Charge
Visitor Services Centre
Immigration & Checkpoints Authority
ICA Building 
10 Kallang Road
#04-00
