The Singapore Amateur Radio Transmitting Society (SARTS) are pleased to advise that the Singapore licensing authority, the Infocommunications Development Authority (iDA), have recently announced that temporary Amateur licences are now available to radio hams visiting Singapore.

Tha application should be made 3 weeks before arrival in Singapore and the license is typically valid for a 3 months period using the callsign 9V1/Homecall. A fee of 50 Singapore Dollars will apply. The application process and forms are posted on the iDA website shown  below.

There have been some changes over the years in Singapore. Licencing and Regulation is now under the control of the Infocomm Development Authority of
Singapore (IDA). Their address and the application form has changed:

The radio amateur application form and the Amateur handbook contiuneing the information on the regulation required for submission of amateur station in
Singapore can be downloaded from the IDA website .
The exact address where the radio amateurs' application forms (3 pages) were located was the following:$FILE/AF401.pdf?OpenElement
and this address is valid until the destination URL changes. IDA have recently updated the Amateur Handbook in the IDA website with the change in the Morse speed and evaluation criteria (now 5WPM).

There is also a lot of practical help available via the Singapore Amateur Radio Transmitting Society at website
