Singapore is relatively close to India and is a very popular destination for Indians for all purposes. There is no Singapore visa on arrival for Indians. The different aspect of applying for a Singapore visa in Singapore is that a “strategic partner” or local contact in Singapore has to file the visa application for the applicant.  A strategic partner is a travel agency authorized by the Singapore government to submit the visa application. 

Indians need a visa to enter Singapore. Holders of diplomatic, official and service passports do not need a visa for entry.
