Travellers visiting Singapore will generally have comfortable, tropical weather as the country is near the equator. The country does not have any distinct seasons.
Singapore is generally a safe destination for travel. However, as with all travel at home or away, you should observe the same precautions with your personal safety and possessions. Take copies of your important documents (passports and credit cards) and keep them separate from the originals. You should also keep a record of the description and serial numbers of valuable items (cameras and laptops).
While some vaccines may be recommended when travelling around Asia – WHO recommends travellers be up to date with their Tetanus, Diphtheria, Hepatitis A & Hepatitis B shots.
In general, prior to departure for any vacation, it’s always best to speak with your physician, who knows your medical history, and can assess any risks involved with your intended destination.

Canadian passport holders who visit Japan must have a valid passport, which should be valid during the entire period of stay. Canadian passport holders staying in the country for less than 90 days do not need a Visa.
