I was impressed by the efficiency of Singapore government. They issued an e-visa the second day after I submitted the application, although the standard processing time is 3 days – an example of “under promising, over delivering”.
The e-visa is just a printed paper (just needed for airlines to check-in). The real visa is in the computer system, and will be validated with my passport.
The visa fee is 153 RMB (30 S’$). It is valid of two years, and multi-entry.
Good. I am happy that I can visit Singapore at any time. If there is cheaper airline ticket, that will be better.
If you are interested in the event I am going to participate, check here. Thanks for the kind sponsorship from the School of Computing of National University of Singapore for the trip.
This will be my second trip to Singapore, with the first one about 10 years ago.
