After arrival, the student will need to fulfil the ICA requirements before collecting the Student Pass. The Registrar’s Office will guide the student to complete the Student Pass formalities and obtain the student pass within the 1-month stay as a social visit pass holder. The process will include:
- A medical check-up to be done in Singapore with HIV-screening at one of the clinical laboratories designated by the Ministry of Health.
- Where applicable, a security deposit in the form of a Banker’s Guarantee may be required upon approval of the student pass application. The student will need to pay a non-refundable banker’s guarantee service charge. The student is responsible for all costs incurred.
All international students (except Malaysians) are required by the ICA to obtain a Banker’s Guarantee as a Security Deposit before they can obtain their Student Passes. The Banker’s Guarantee must be valid for at least six months beyond until the completion of studies and the cancellation of the Student Pass. This is to fulfil ICA requirements. For example, if a student is planning to complete his studies in three years’ time, the validity of the Banker’s Guarantee should be at least three years and six months.
