Like to ask you some questions:
Did you get a Visa On Arrival or applied a visa before hand?
If you applied for a visa on arrival, did you encountered any problems when boarding the airline?
How many days did you get for visa, 14 or 15 days?

I have a Malaysian passport... it's a 15-days free visa on arrival for me, no problem boarding any plane.

The friend that I went with is Singaporean, took him more than an hour to get the same 15-day visa on arrival (which cost him 60 euros as I remember) and he had to convince the person in changi to let him board the plane say he will get visa on arrival.

May I know which airline is that?
Understand some airlines are very strict with visa requirements and some may not let the passenger board without any visa.
Have been reading thru other forums like tripadvisor and thorn tree and some indicated the VOA (Visa On Arrival) is free for Singaporeans.

This info may be helpful: http://www.sgtravelcafe.com/index.php?topic=269.45

Keep in mind that the VOA option may not be available if your return ticket shows an intended stay of more than 2 weeks.
