SINGAPORE - Chinese nationals travelling to Singapore freqently will now find it more convenient to clear immigration after the extension of the Multiple Journey Visas (MJVs) validity to 10 years from June 1.
This 10 years validity will also be extended to spouses of successful visa applicants and their children below the age of 21.
The new 10-year MJV is automatically granted to eligible travellers when they apply for a normal visa.
The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority said in a statement today that generally, PRC nationals will be considered for the 10-year MJV if they have previously visited Singapore and their visa application is supported by relevant Singapore agencies.
This will benefit frequent business travellers from China.
Eligible applicants will also be able to use the automated immigration clearance at Singapore's checkpoints, ICA added.
