Where to apply for a visa to Singapore
Do I need a visa to the Synagapur for the Russians? If you fly in transit and you will be in the country up to 96 hours, then NO. But remember transit must be in the 3rd country! That is, you can not fly from Thailand to Singapore and fly back to Tai. Transit example: Таиланд => Сингапур => Малайзия. Otherwise, you will not be put on the flight without a visa.
You can come to Singapore as you please (plane, cruise liner, bus), but to leave Singapore within 96 hours must Owned by plane. Otherwise, you need to do a visa.

Registration of the electronic visa at 3 intermediaries
On e-visa I checked with three intermediaries. Did in the end through Sentosa, because they have the lowest cost of a visa, and the hotel, which must be booked only through them, anyway Comes with Booking.com, where I was going to book initially.
Sentosa tour (my version, personal experience)
The cost of a visa: for 1 person $ 50, and in fact goes $ 53 with person When paying with a card, they charge $ 53, apparently some Commission, did not ask.
Duration: 3-4 days. But in fact I got a visa to the post office just a day after the payment. Well, the voucher for the hotel, too, along with them.
Sentosa you send a minimum set of documents. Actually, in addition to the price, it bribed. Min hemorrhoids.
- It is necessary to fill in the questionnaire in electronic form on the website. Sentosis.

- Choose a hotel not lower than 3 * on Booking.com and attach a screenshot of hotel, dates and price to the questionnaire, instead of armor (they themselves said).
Sentosa reviews documents for 1-2 days and if everything is ok, then says to pay a visa and a hotel on your website (not on Bukienga). Specially send a link where you can make a payment (full amount). That is, initially I did not pay anything, I waited until will confirm the docks and hotel.
The site says that they may ask to send additional documents deemed necessary. In my case, nothing have requested. And this despite the fact that a girl was traveling with me up to (45 years) with as a child, but it is said everywhere that such a visa is generally not issued if they are not married. So, the marriage certificate was not requested, as if You can write anything in the questionnaire (wrote that she was married). On the child also did not request any documents (only passport, photo, profile).
Regarding armor. Sentosa promises to invoice the hotel, such the same as in Bucking, without extra charge. But when I chose the hotel, being logged in to my account, I have a total value for 4 days was 30 bucks lower. I do not know why so, no discounts for my account is not allowed, the usual acc.
In case of refusal of a visa, the money for the visa will not be returned (as well as all), and the money for the hotel returns. But, as I was told, bounce they were not.
