General Questions

Can I know a little more about the Visa requirements?

All foreign visitors must ensure that they meet or possess the entry requirement stated by the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority. British and Irish passport holders, as well as Australian citizens, do not require visas to enter Singapore for a stay of fewer than 30 days and meet the entry requirements as mentioned above. Citizens from other countries can also check for eVisa. For further information, you can directly get in touch with your point of contact, who can assist you better.
 

Can I join the program as a solo traveler or do I have to be in a group?

It's your choice! You can explore the country as a solo traveler or hop around with your favorite people if they are willing to join you as well. If you are coming in a group of more than 5, we can also provide you with customized packages as well as amazing discounts.
 

How safe will it be for a solo traveler in Singapore?

Singapore is pretty safe for solo travelers. You’ll find a lot of travelers, roaming around in the city. We believe that your safety depends on you to a large extent, hence you need to be a little cautious. We'll have our coordinators who'll be there at your service, 24/7. So you need not worry about safety.
 

Will I get to know others in my group before I go?

You might come here alone, but you'll end up meeting some amazing people. In case you want to get in touch with others who are traveling to Singapore, you can join our Facebook Group and chitchat with your fellow travelers!

Can I get some help with buying a Medical and Travel Insurance?

You need to buy your Medical and Travel Insurance before setting out for your trip. GDA also provides the insurance facilities, at an additional cost.
 

How much extra money will I need during my stay in the country?

You'll need money for your personal expenses, additional tour costs, meals etc. It'll be sufficient if you keep around 100 SGD per week.
 

Will there be any language barrier?

Don’t worry about it, since English is the most widely spoken language in the country. You’ll find people speaking Chinese, Malay and Thai as well.
 

Can I know more about all the things that I need to pack for my Singapore trip?

Singapore experiences hot and humid tropical weather throughout the year. If you are coming for an internship, it’s advisable that you carry formal clothes for your workplace. Otherwise, comfortable linen clothes would be the best.  It's wiser to travel light and pack only the essentials. Don't make your luggage too heavy, as you'll get almost everything in Singapore!
