News: Singapore opens consulate in Batam.

The Singapore Consulate in Batam is open, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday (23rd April 2009).

The consulate will provide consular services for Singaporeans visiting, living or working in the Riau Islands Province. As Batam is only about 1.5 hours from Karimun Island, this is a very convenient service for Singaporeans here.

It will also promote and facilitate more intensive interactions and cooperation between Singapore and Riau, said Singapore's MFA.

The consulate is located on the 8th Floor of Sumatera Convention Centre, Jl Engku Putri, Kav. 01, Batam Centre, Batam.

Contact details are: Tel: +62 (0778) 470070, 470071 and Fax: +62 (0778) 470076

The Consulate will open daily from Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 12.30 pm, and from 1.30 pm to 5 pm.

It will be closed on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.
