Student's Pass Application
You will be receiving an email from ESSEC for Student’s Pass (visa) application. Below are steps to your student's pass application:
Step 1: Once we have received your passport and insurance copy, ESSEC Singapore will advise you by email on the student's pass application procedures
Step 2: After receiving the email, please log on to the SOLAR system on the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website, with your assigned SOLAR application number and your personal particulars.
Step 3: Complete the student's pass application (eform 16) and submit to ICA for processing.
Step 4: ESSEC will send you an email to inform you about the outcome. Once your student's pass is approved, you will be required to make payment for your student's pass issuance fee ($60) and multiple journey visa ($30) before we can provide you with the In Principle Approval Letter (IPA) via email.
Step 5: You are required to make an e-appointment with ICA using the details provided in the IPA letter.
Step 6: Submit the medical report (if applicable) and complete the formalities at the Immigration on the appointed date with the required documents as specified when you receive our emails in Step 2 and Step 4.
It takes time to process a student pass, hence it is vital to submit all the required documents on time. Late submission will delay the application of your student pass. Without the IPA, students are not allowed to commence their studies in Singapore. So, it is important to obtain your IPA letter before booking your flight to Singapore.
