In light of the stepped-up measures announced on Friday, 3 Apr 2020 to pre-empt escalating COVID-19 infections, the Singapore Prison Service (SPS) will be implementing stricter safe distancing measures to ensure the safety and well-being of our inmates.

All visits will be temporarily suspended from Tues, 7 Apr 2020 to Mon, 4 May 2020. Thereafter, resumption of visits will be subject to further review.

Meanwhile, SPS is exploring alternative means of communication for our inmates and their loved ones. Details will be provided in due course via our online portal:

To assist affected visitors, we will be keeping our visit hotline open on Saturday, 4 April & Sunday, 5 April, from 8.45am to 4.00pm. You may contact us at (+65) 6546 7169 / 70 / 71 / 72.

Visit Card


A serialised Visit Card will be issued to the Next-of-Kin nominated by the inmate. After issuance, this person will be known as the Main Card Holder of the inmate.

This visit card needs to be presented at every visit session. If the Main cardholder is not available for visit, he/ she can pass this visit card to another approved visitor to facilitate their visit in his/ her absence.

Approved visitors who are unable to produce the Visit card will not be allowed to proceed with the visit.
