If you are staying for less than 3 months, citizens of certain countries (for example Morocco, Somalia & Russia) will need to apply for a visa.

Whatever category applies to you, you will have to go through the Ministry of Manpower. There is a whole lot of paperwork involved (and is all done in English, the language of administration in Singapore ), as well as a lot of queuing and waiting around. Luckily, it is usually the employer who takes care of this side of things. You/your employer will also have to prove that no Singaporean can do the job that you are applying for. It goes without saying that you will need a proper contract.
If you are re-entering Singapore to work, you will need a re-entry Permit.
