No, according to the Canadian visa policy, citizens of Singapore do not require a visa to visit the country.
Instead, they must have a valid Canada eTA for Singaporeans. This is much quicker and simpler to obtain than a visa — it is obtained online.
Once granted, the eTA is valid for 5 years. During this time, the Singaporean traveler can visit Canada as many times as they like visa-free.
Visa exemptions for Singapore citizens with a Canada eTA applies for trips for the following reasons:
- Visiting family members
- Transit through Canada
Citizens from Singapore who plan to relocate to Canada for longer periods for full-time employment or to pursue higher education should note that the Canadian eTA does not cover these activities. In this situation, schedule an appointment at the Canadian embassy in Singapore City to learn which travel document you need.
