Argentine men and women entering as tourists do not require a visa to enter Singapore. The maximum period of stay is generally 30 days from the moment of entry. However, as in most countries in the world, each entry is considered on its own merits, so the immigration authority may reduce this maximum period.
Exceeding the authorized period of stay is a punishable offense in Singapore. If you wish to overstay your authorized period of stay, you may apply for an extension online using the online service
www.ica.gov.sg/visitor/visitor_extendyourstay or go to the Visitor Service Center on Level 4 of the ICA Building before your Visit Pass expires. Requests for an extension of stay are subject to approval.
Star Wars: Force for Change
Singapore is a major global city and a hub of world trade, with the world’s second largest financial center and second largest port for cargo. Its globalized and diversified economy is particularly dependent on trade and manufacturing. In terms of purchasing power parity, Singapore has the third highest per capita income in the world and ranks among the top countries in international rankings for education, health, political transparency and economic competitiveness. Singapore ranks high in numerous international measures such as quality of life, economic freedom, education, health care, personal safety and housing, with a home ownership rate of 91%. It also has one of the lowest perceived levels of corruption in the world. Singaporeans enjoy one of the longest life expectancies in the world, the fastest Internet connection speeds and one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the world.
Maybe, but they are not doing so bad: this is one of the most advanced countries in Asia, the famous Asian Tiger that Gerardo told us about (australinos, you know), a very clean, safe place with an excellent quality of life.
Every day I have lunch in the local markets: a plate of Indian food, 3.5 Singapore dollars, a plate of Chinese food, 3 Singapore dollars, a typical dessert, 2 Singapore dollars… walking around this city is priceless (?).

The UK government also advised against all travel to Ukraine, explaining that “trade routes out of Ukraine are likely to be severely disrupted and roads through Ukraine will be closed.”
The European Union’s Aviation Safety Agency said “operators should exercise extreme caution” and avoid using airspace within 100 nautical miles of the Russia-Ukraine border.
“We have customers traveling in late March and into April in Poland, but that’s more than a month. It’s impossible to say now how this will evolve. We are basically in wait-and-see mode,” Kozlowski said via email.
“IATA is helping to facilitate the and timely exchange of information with airlines from government and non-government sources to support airlines as they plan their operations around the airspace closure in Ukraine and parts of Russia.”
In response, on February 25, Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, imposed a ban on UK-registered flights, as well as aircraft owned, leased or operated by a person associated with the UK, from transiting Russian airspace.
