How long can you stay in Singapore without a job?

The type of visa a person has will determine how long they can remain in Singapore without a job. Individuals having longer-term visit permits, such as the Social Visit Pass, may be able to stay for several months. Conversely, travelers with tourist visas can typically stay up to three months. 


Immigration Laws and Lawsuits

But it’s crucial to remember that a visitor visa is only intended for a mini holiday and pleasure, not job hunting or any other paid or unpaid employment. If someone is caught working without a valid work permit or other authorization, they could face penalties, punishments, and/or expulsion.

Immigration Fraud Case Fake Language Proficiency Test

Vietnamese students engaged in visa fraud in South Korea in 2015 were the target of a crackdown by the government, which could result in the expulsion of over 700 students. As evidence for their applications for student visas, the suspects allegedly used fictitious language proficiency certificates and other papers.

They were apprehended as a result of widespread visa fraud committed by Vietnamese students in South Korea, which was revealed by a government-led probe.Deportation was a possibility for the suspects because they were accused of breaking immigration rules. To avoid future occurrences of the same type of episode, the South Korean government has since tightened the rules governing Vietnamese student visa applications.
