Tourist Visa (e-Visa) Application Process

Singapore Tourist Visa (e-Visa) Application Portal (SAVE)

You cannot apply for the Singapore tourist visa (e-Visa) on your own. You must apply using a Singapore local contact or an authorized visa agent.

Most Singapore overseas missions do not accept tourist visa applications. They will ask you to use a local contact or an authorized agent. 

But there are still a handful of Singapore embassies in the world that are still accepting tourist visa applications. 

In summary, there are 3 ways to apply for Singapore tourist visa.

  • Apply using a local contact
  • Apply using an authorized visa agent
  • Apply at a Singapore Overseas Mission

Let’s look at each of these options in detail.

1. Apply for tourist visa using a local contact

You must know someone in Singapore who can act as your local contact to apply for the tourist visa on your behalf. 

This local contact in Singapore must have a “Singpass” account. Only Singapore citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents have Singpass accounts. 

Send the following information and documents to your local contact.

  • A copy of your passport ID page 
  • A digital passport-size photo
  • Your email address, phone number
  • Your current occupation, highest educational degree and annual income (in SGD)
  • Your date of arrival, intended stay, and country of departure

Have your local contact follow the below steps to apply for your e-Visa.

Step 1 : Navigate to the Submission of Application for Visa Electronically (SAVE) portal.

Step 2 : Select “Apply for Entry Visa as a Local Contact (Individual Users)”. You will be redirected to the Singpass website to log in.

Step 3 : Click on “Create a New Application”.

Step 4 : Sequentially fill in the applicant’s details, travel information, and local contact details, upload a photo, and confirm.

Step 5 : Pay the visa fee of 30 SGD from the “MyCard Payment Summary” page. Download the invoice.

Step 6 : Print or screenshot the acknowledgment page and send it to the applicant. This acknowledgment page has the “Visa Application Reference Number” which is required to track or download the e-Visa. 

If your email was used during the application process, you will also receive an acknowledgment email with the “Visa Application Reference Number”. 

If your local contact used their email, they can forward the acknowledgment email to you so you can make a note of the “Visa Application Reference Number” and track the status of your e-Visa. 

The processing of the e-Visa takes 3-5 working days. You can track the application status and download your approved e-Visa. 

Instructions to track the status and download the approved e-Visa are in the sections below. 

2. Apply for tourist visa using an authorized visa agent

The Singapore embassies that do not accept tourist visa applications usually post a list of authorized visa agents on their websites. 

Find the nearest Singapore Overseas Mission in your country and check their website for the list of authorized visa agents.

Go to the authorized visa agent’s office and submit the following documents.

  • Passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of your entry into Singapore
  • Photocopy of your passport biodata page
  • One passport-size photo affixed on the form
  • Round-trip flight tickets
  • Hotel bookings
  • Completed Form V39A LOI (if applicable)
  • Visa fee and service fee in local currency

Authorized agents do not keep your original passport with them. Presenting the original passport at the time of application submission is only for verification purposes.

Authorized agents have access to the SAVE portal and they will apply for your visa on your behalf. They will send you the “Visa Application Reference Number” to track and download your approved e-Visa.

Instructions to track the status and download the approved e-Visa are in the sections below.

3. Apply for tourist visa at Singapore overseas mission

Check with your nearest Singapore overseas mission if they accept tourist visa applications. If they do, find out whether you need an appointment or you can just walk in.

Submit the following documents to the Singapore embassy.

  • Visa fee in local currency

The embassy will not keep your original passport. Presenting the original passport is only for verification purposes.

You will receive an email from the embassy with the “Visa Application Reference Number” to track and download your approved e-Visa.

How to track tourist visa (e-Visa) status

Even though you had to use a local contact or visa agent to apply, you can track status and download the e-Visa yourself. Follow the below steps to track your e-Visa status.

  • Navigate to the Singapore SAVE portal  
  • Click on “Enquire Application Status”
  • Enter your Visa Application Reference Number, and passport number and click on the “Next” button
  • On the next page, you will see your current e-Visa status.

If your visa application is still in process, the status will be “Visa Application in Pending”. If approved, it will be “Your Application is Approved”.

How to download an approved tourist visa (e-Visa)

Follow the above steps to track your e-Visa status. If the visa has been successfully issued, you will see “Your Application is Approved” with your approved visa details. 

Click the “Print e-Visa” button to download your e-Visa as a PDF file. 

Print this e-Visa on an A4 or letter-size sheet and present it with your passport at immigration in Singapore. 

How to contact tourist visa customer service

If you or your local contact have questions, use the following options to contact ICA customer service.

Webpage: Check the User Manual for questions on filling out the visa application  Email: [email protected]

Entry Procedure at the Border

Make sure to print your e-Visa before your trip to Singapore. If you are eligible to use automated immigration lanes, you may not need a print. But the airline might want to see a print of your e-Visa.

Submit SG Arrival Card (SGAC)

You must submit your SG Arrival Card (SGAC) online within 3 days before arrival in Singapore. You can submit SGAC either online or using the MyICA Mobile App.

Use automated immigration lanes

Passport holders from 60 countries are eligible to use automated lanes at Changi airport and land borders. If you are not eligible to use automated lanes, you may pass through manned immigration desks.

You may be asked to present your e-Visa print. You may also be asked to produce proof of onward travel and proof of sufficient cash to ensure that you do not overstay your visa.

Receive Electronic Visit Pass (e-Pass)

Singapore does not stamp passports on entry or exit. After clearing the immigration, an Electronic Visit Pass (e-Pass) is issued and sent to your email which you have mentioned in your SG Arrival Card. 

You can also retrieve your e-Pass on the ICA website using your Disembarkation/Embarkation number (DE No.) or passport information. 

You can find your DE No. in your SG Arrival Card (SGAC) acknowledgment email, PDF or mobile app.

The e-Pass contains the following details:

  • Disembarkation/Embarkation number (DE No.)
  • Date and time of issuance of visit pass
  • Number of days of stay granted
  • Last day of stay allowed in Singapore

The e-Pass will also mention whether you are eligible to use the automated lanes for your departure and any subsequent trips to Singapore. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Do i need to print the singapore e-visa.

Yes. You must print the Singapore e-Visa. Singaporean authorities may have the e-Visa on file already, but you are still asked to present if you’re not using the automated immigration lanes. Also, the airline staff might want to see the e-Visa print when checking in. 

Why is there no visa stamp in my passport?

Singapore has phased out issuing physical stamps in passports. Instead, you will be issued an electronic visit pass (e-Pass) and sent to your email shortly after you enter Singapore.

Introduction

Applying for a visa to visit or work in Singapore can seem daunting, with many steps to follow and documents to prepare.

A key question in the process is how long it takes to get the visa approved after submitting an application.

This guide provides a detailed breakdown of Singapore visa processing times, along with tips to help your application go smoothly.

Overview of Singapore Visa Types

There are several main types of visas issued by the Singapore government. The processing time can vary depending on the specific visa category:

Visitor Visas

If you want to visit Singapore as a tourist, you’ll need to apply for a visitor visa. Options include:

  • Single Journey Visa:  Valid for a stay of up to 30 days. Processing time is typically 5 working days.
  • Multiple Journey Visa:  Valid for multiple entries over 2, 6 or 12 months. Processing time is around 7 working days.
  • Transit Visa:  For transiting through Singapore. Valid up to 96 hours. Usually processed within 5 working days.

For employment or business activities in Singapore, there are various work visa options:

  • Employment Pass:  For foreign professionals working in managerial, executive or specialized jobs. Takes around 8-10 working days to process.
  • S Pass:  For mid-level skilled staff. Approval time is 5-7 working days.
  • Work Permit:  For foreign workers in the construction, manufacturing, marine, process or services sector. Can be processed within 1 week.
  • EntrePass:  For foreign entrepreneurs wanting to start a business in Singapore. Around 4 weeks to process.
  • Training Employment Pass:  For overseas professionals on short-term assignments in Singapore. Usually approved within 5 working days.

If you plan to study in Singapore, you can apply for:

  • Student’s Pass:  For international students at private schools, colleges and universities. Processing time is 4 weeks.
  • Miscellaneous Student’s Pass:  For short courses up to 6 months. Takes around 1 week to process.

Factors Affecting Visa Processing Time

While the above timeframes are typical, your individual visa application may take longer depending on these key factors:

  • Nationality:  Applicants from certain countries may require additional background checks, adding to the processing time.
  • Purpose of Visit:  Applications for work or entrepreneur visas generally take longer than tourist visas.
  • Application Errors:  Mistakes or missing documents will cause delays and require you to resubmit.
  • Peak Periods:  Processing times may be longer during busy travel seasons or school holidays.
  • Medical Checks:  If you need additional health screening, this adds to the timeline.

Tips for Fast Visa Processing

Here are some tips to help ensure your Singapore visa gets approved quickly:

  • Carefully choose the appropriate visa type based on your purpose of stay.
  • Complete your application fully and accurately to avoid mistakes. Double check all details.
  • Include all required supporting documents like passport, photos, flight itinerary and financial proof.
  • If applicable, have a local sponsor provide a letter of invitation or employment verification letter.
  • Apply at least 2-3 weeks in advance of your planned trip. Avoid peak holiday times if possible.
  • Pay required visa fees promptly to prevent delays.
  • Check the online portal regularly and respond to any requests promptly.
  • Maintain polite communication with visa officers if queries arise.

The processing time for a Singapore visa can range from 1 week to 4 weeks depending on visa type, nationality, travel purpose and application accuracy. Following the tips above will help ensure your visa gets approved in the fastest timeframe possible.

Planning your application well in advance is highly recommended to avoid disruptions to your travel or work plans. With an efficient and streamlined system, Singapore aims to process all complete and bona fide visa applications as quickly as possible.

Extension Of Validity Of Multiple Journey Visa For Nationals Of The People's Republic Of China

            With effect from 1 June 2015, the validity of the Multiple Journey Visas (MJVs) issued to nationals from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) can be extended up to a maximum of 10 years. The same facility will also be extended to his spouse and children below the age of 21, if the main applicant is eligible. The visa application process and processing fee remain unchanged. As with MJVs offered to other nationals under Singapore’s visa framework, PRC nationals with a valid MJV need not apply for a visa each time they visit Singapore.

2.         The move will provide greater convenience for PRC nationals, especially business travellers, who travel often to Singapore.

3.          Eligible applicants will also be able to use the automated immigration clearance at Singapore’s checkpoints. More details will be announced at a later date.

FREQUENTLY-ASKED-QUESTIONS

Q1) How do I apply for a 10-year Multiple-Journey Visa (MJV)?

PRC nationals can submit their visa applications through the authorised visa agents of the Overseas Missions in China. Please check the respective Overseas Mission's website for more information about the authorised visa agents and the visa application procedure. For those residing outside China, please also check the respective Overseas Mission's website for more information about the visa application procedure.

For general information on how to apply for a visa, please refer to the ICA website at www.ica.gov.sg.

Q2) Who is eligible for a 10-year MJV?

Ans: Generally, PRC nationals will be considered for the 10-year MJV if they have previously visited Singapore and their visa application is supported by relevant Singapore agencies. While every visa application will be assessed on its own merits for eligibility, the validity period of the approved visa can vary.

Types Of Visas In Singapore: Explained

Types Of Visas In Singapore

Ready to uncover the Lion City’s visa varieties? Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered!

The glitz of Marina Bay Sands, the allure of hawker centers, and a thriving business hub : Singapore is more than just a stopover. Whether you’re exploring, working, or settling, the right visa type is your ticket in.

Let’s dive in!

Singapore Visa

Types Of Visas In Singapore 1

A Singapore visa is an official document issued by the Singaporean Government that allows foreign nationals to enter, stay, and engage in various activities within the country’s borders. 

It serves as legal authorization for individuals to visit Singapore for tourism, work, study , or business purposes , depending on the type of visa obtained.

A Singapore visa allows the holder to enter a Singaporean point of entry, where they will be checked by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers. The ICA decides whether the visitor meets the country’s entry requirements.

You have to apply for a Singapore visa at least 30 days before you arrive in Singapore.

But keep in mind that just because you have a Singapore visa does not mean you will be allowed to enter since the Singapore visa is just pre-entry permission.

If you meet the entry requirements, however, you will receive a Pass allowing you to enter Singapore and stay for the duration the Pass is issued. 

For example, for a Singapore tourist visa, you will receive a Visit Pass, usually valid for a maximum of 30 days within 90 days.

Do You Need To Apply For A Visa To Go To Singapore?

The majority of the world’s countries can freely enter Singapore without a visa . However, for those who do need a visa, the application process has been simplified. You can apply online anytime after Singapore introduced the e-Visa.

The countries whose citizens need a Singapore visa have been categorized into two groups. The Assessment Level I Countries and Assessment Level II Countries. 

The level in which your country is in determines part of the application process as well as the visa processing time.

Moving To Singapore

Types Of Visas In Singapore 8

Living in Singapore is something that many people dream of because life here is considered by many to be life at its best. 

Singapore is an efficient and clean Asian city that retains much of the charm of its British colonial days while offering a cutting-edge, well-developed environment.

Singapore’s position on the southern tip of Malaysia has allowed it to develop into one of the most important trade and finance centers in Asia, and today, it is the fifth wealthiest country in the world according to GDP. 

It also has the fourth-largest foreign exchange trading center in the world.

Singapore’s population of 5.08 million people (June 2010) primarily consists of people of Chinese (70%), Malay, and Indian backgrounds.

Singapore is a city of robust laws , which are adhered to strictly. While this has given it a reputation as an authoritarian state, the reality is that it keeps the city safe, clean, and well-ordered.

The main religions followed in Singapore are Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and Tao.

Singapore As An Expat Destination

Types Of Visas In Singapore 9

Expats from all over the world move to Singapore in large numbers yearly; there are approximately 1.31 nonpermanent residents/citizens living in Singapore (June 2010). 

Singapore is widely regarded as the most accessible city in Asia for expats to fit into, and it allows foreigners an opportunity to become acquainted with different cultures in a relatively safe and modern environment.

Singapore is an excellent location to raise a family, and the availability of high-quality education, low price of home help, and strong security means that bringing up children here is often easier than it would be in your home country.

The standard of living available in this city is notoriously high , and the healthcare facilities are second to none. Singapore has a meager crime rate , and the streets are safe, even in the middle of the night. 

There is no shortage of expat groups and clubs throughout the city, so no matter what your nationality, you can always be sure of finding fellow expats somewhere in the city.

One of the few disadvantages of living in Singapore as an expat and becoming a digital nomad is government-censored information that is broadcast via TV and media. 

However, the reliable and inexpensive broadband services entail that expatriates can easily overcome this obstacle.

The official language of Singapore is Mandarin Chinese , which is the Singaporean Government’s language. However, English is the most common language and is the language of business and trade. 

Children will generally be taught in English in schools but will also be expected to learn Mandarin . Other common languages in Singapore include Tamil, Malay, and Cantonese.

Many Singaporeans speak a language that has come to be known as Singlish . Singlish is a mixture of English and other languages and can be difficult for English speakers to understand. 

English speakers seldom experience real problems communicating with people in Singapore.

Critical Facts Every Expat Should Know About Moving To Singapore

  • It is actually warmer and drier in the eastern part of Singapore. This is worth bearing in mind when you are choosing which area to live in.
  • In Singapore, you must pay a tax to own a television (the license fee).

  • You may drive in Singapore on your license for up to one year, but after this period, you will be required to convert to a Singapore license . 

Singapore, with its blend of cultures, cuisines, and commerce, remains a top destination for many. As you’ve navigated the plethora of visa options , remember: the right paperwork is your passport to everything the city-state offers.

Extended validity of Multiple Journey Visa will help attract more visitors to Singapore

Singapore, 15 May 2015  – The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) welcomes the announcement by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) today of visa measures ( Annex A ) that will extend the validity of Multiple Journey Visas (MJVs) issued to nationals from the People's Republic of China (PRC), up to a maximum of 10 years.

The extended validity of the MJVs will reduce the hassle of having to reapply for a visa for each trip, and make it more convenient for PRC tourists to visit Singapore. This will enhance STB's efforts to increase visitor arrivals and tourism spending, which will benefit Singapore businesses and workers in tourism-related sectors such as hotels, attractions, dining and retail. 

"This move will support STB's strategy of promoting quality tourism and attracting visitors from our key source markets. It is also timely as we intensify our destination marketing efforts this year, with an exciting calendar of activities planned in conjunction with Singapore's 50th anniversary.  Besides China, STB is also reaching out to visitors from other key markets including Indonesia, India and Australia", said Mr Leong Yue Kheong, Assistant Chief Executive, International Group, STB.

In addition, STB is working with our embassy in China to expand the network of Authorised Visa Agents so that PRC visitors have more channels to apply for Singapore visas. 

As part of its marketing efforts to drive travel demand from the PRC, STB's China office had launched a micro-movie by Singaporean director Royston Tan on 15 April 2015. This microfilm showcases unusual aspects of Singapore as seen through the eyes of a Chinese child on an exchange programme, and revolves around the budding friendship he has with his host, a Singaporean classmate.  Video can be viewed on  http://minisite.youku.com/STB2014/ . Details on other marketing activities including the Golden Jubilee campaign will be shared at a later date.

Singapore extends multiple-journey visas with 10-year validity to Chinese travelers

Singapore extends multiple-journey visas with 10-year validity to Chinese travelers

Share this article

IMPACT – MEDIUM

What is the change? Beginning June 1, Singapore will extend multiple-journey visas valid for 10 years to nationals of the People’s Republic of China.

What does the change mean? Chinese nationals who have previously visited Singapore and whose visa applications are supported by relevant Singaporean agencies will automatically be granted the 10-year visas, allowing them to make repeat trips to Singapore without having to renew their visas as often.

  • Implementation time frame: June 1.
  • Visas/permits affected: Multiple-journey visas (MJVs).
  • Who is affected: Nationals of the People’s Republic of China and their dependents.
  • Impact on processing times: The longer visa validity period will eliminate the need to reapply for visas for each visit.
  • Business impact: The MJVs will facilitate business travel, especially for those making frequent trips.
  • Next steps: Eligible applicants do not need to apply separately for the visas; those who qualify will automatically be granted an MJV.

Background: Chinese nationals applying for a visa will be considered for the 10-year MJVs if they have visited Singapore in the past. The same visas will be extended to the main applicant’s spouse and children below the age of 21. The application process and government fees are unchanged. MJV holders will also have faster border processing by being able to use automated immigration clearance service at Singapore’s airports.

BAL Analysis: The longer validity will benefit frequent business travelers from China. However, they are reminded that while the MJV allows repeat entry during the validity period, it does not lengthen the permitted duration of each stay, which generally ranges from 14 to 30 days depending on the discretion of the immigration officer.

For travel originating or travel ending in Canada or in the United States, if the first carrier on your booking is not Singapore Airlines, that carrier’s baggage policy may apply for the whole itinerary on a single ticket or conjunction tickets.

Depending on where your travel begins or ends in Canada or in the United States, different baggage rules may apply:

  • If your first flight originates on Singapore Airlines from LAX, SFO, IAH, JFK or on a US Airways flight with an SQ flight number, then Singapore Airlines’ baggage policy will apply to your entire itinerary.
  • If your first flight originates from any other US city or the first flight does not have an SQ flight number, the baggage policy of the first carrier may apply to the whole itinerary (per US Department of Transportation rules and if the itinerary is on a single ticket or conjunction tickets).
  • If your destination is a US city and first flight does not have an SQ flight number, the baggage policy of the first carrier may apply to the whole itinerary (per US Department of Transportation rules and if the itinerary is on a single ticket or conjunction tickets).
  • If another airline’s baggage policy applies to your booking (applicable to itineraries on a single ticket or on conjunction tickets), an additional baggage allowance can only be purchased from that airline. Please refer to the relevant websites of our partner airlines to review their specific rules.

Weight limitation

In line with local Occupational Health and Safety rules, each of your checked baggage cannot exceed 32kg. Should your baggage exceed 32kg, the items may have to be re-packed or sent as cargo.

If you wish to transport any item above 32kg, please contact Singapore Airlines Cargo.

Baggage size limitation

If you’re checking in a bulky item at Singapore Changi Airport, it should not exceed 200cm (length) x 75cm (width) x 80cm (height).

Flying on multiple airlines

If you’re flying on multiple airlines, your baggage allowances for your itinerary on single tickets, conjunction tickets and separate tickets will be different.

If your itinerary is booked on separate tickets, the baggage allowance printed on each ticket will apply.

For itineraries booked on a single ticket, refer to the information below.

There are two terms to you need to know when flying multiple airlines:

‘Marketing Carrier’ refers to the airline that sells the ticket for a flight.

‘Most Significant Marketing Carrier’ is the airline whose code can be found on the ticket for the longest geographical or most significant stretch of the journey.

To find out more on baggage allowance privileges on other airlines' flights as a PPS Club or KrisFlyer Elite Gold member, please refer to Privileges of PPS Club or Benefits of KrisFlyer Elite Gold .

When flying to and from Canada or the USA

The first marketing carrier will decide the baggage policies for the entire journey. The first marketing carrier may choose to apply the baggage policies of the Most Significant Marketing Carrier or apply its own baggage policies for the journey.

For instance, Airline X is the first marketing carrier on this journey:

Washington (Airline X) -> San Francisco (SQ) -> Hong Kong

Singapore Airlines (SQ), on the other hand, is the most significant marketing carrier on this journey.

As the first marketing carrier, Airline X gets to decide whether their or Singapore Airlines’ baggage allowance applies to the whole journey.

If you have any doubts, please refer to the applicable free baggage allowance indicated on your ticket for each sector of your flight.

When flying to and from any other part of the world

In this case, the baggage allowance of the most significant marketing carrier applies. On journeys that include a stopover, the most significant marketing carrier may change after the stopover point.

There are two most significant marketing carriers on this journey:

Singapore (SG) -> Bangkok (stopover; Airline A) -> Copenhagen (no stopover; Airline B) -> Stockholm

From Singapore to Bangkok, Singapore Airlines is the most significant marketing carrier. However, from Bangkok to Stockholm, Airline A travels the greatest geographical distance and is the most significant marketing carrier.

The baggage allowance for Singapore Airlines applies on the flight from Singapore to Bangkok, while the baggage allowance for Airline A applies on the flights from Bangkok to Stockholm.

Singapore Airlines is the most significant marketing carrier on this journey, as it doesn’t include a stopover:

Canberra (Airline P) -> Brisbane (no stopover; Airline Q) -> Singapore (no stopover; SQ) -> London

The baggage allowance for Singapore Airlines applies throughout the journey from Canberra to London.

Carriage of ALcohol-based Disinfectant or Hand Sanitisers in Checked Baggage

If you are carrying alcohol-based disinfectants or hand sanitisers in your checked baggage, you are advised that the weight should not exceed 0.5 KG or 0.5 L per article and 2.0 KG or 2.0 L in total to comply with the Dangerous Goods Regulations.

6 Things You Should Know Before Travelling From Singapore to Johor Bahru

audrey

Did you know there are 12 theme parks just in Johor Bahru? Yup, there’s the popular Legoland and Austin Heights Water & Adventure Park, to the new Game On indoor theme park, there are options for the young and young at heart! There even used to be a Sanrio Hello Kitty Town but sadly, that’s closed now. 

While going to JB can be a ‘basic’ Singaporean thing to do (along with wearing Uniqlo and always about NS and HDBs), there’s no denying that JB is cheaper for us when we want to buy certain things or just have some awesome Malaysian food. And if there’s anything that helps us save money, we at MoneySmart are totally down for it! 

And since Malaysia says that Singaporeans no longer need to complete the Malaysia Digital Arrival Card (MDAC) from 1 Jan 2024, we can just use the e-gates instead of queuing for ages at the manual passport counter. However, there seem to be some kinks in the system where it doesn’t work for some people, so just beware of the risks!

Here are 6 things you should know before travelling to JB: 

1. Travelling From Singapore to Jb by Bus, Car, Train and Private Hire

There are 4 main ways to get to JB, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

The most popular options for public buses include regular SBS Transit and SMRT buses, as well as Causeway Link (CW) buses that take you to customs:

From Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange: 950

From Queen Street Bus Terminal: 170, 170X,

From Jurong Town Hall Interchange/ Opposite Kranji MRT station: 160

CW buses: CW1 (from Kranji MRT), CW2 (Queen Street Bus Terminal), CW3, CW4S (Jurong Town Hall Interchange), CW5 (Newton Circus), CW6 (Boon Lay Way bus stop), CW7 (Opp Tuas Link Station)

There are also other buses by private companies such as Transtar and Singapore-Johor Express but these are less frequent so we won’t cover it here. 

What you’ll need is to have your EZ-link or credit card for the Singapore buses. If you take a CW bus, you’ll want to have cash ready or a Visa credit card. CW buses don’t accept Mastercard or other card providers yet. 

Grab also offers a Grab Bus which costs $3 to $11 per person depending on your pickup location.

Bus is by far the most popular and cheapest way of getting to JB, although you’ll have to contend with the long queues at customs on weekends, school holidays, and on eve/public holidays.

Own vehicle

If you own a car or motorbike, good for you. Just zip straight up to Woodlands or Tuas Checkpoint and go through customs all without leaving your vehicle. Just that you may have to contend with long lines depending on when you go. 

The journey for drivers just got smoother with the new QR code system from Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) .

  • Simply download the MyICA app 
  • Generate a QR code 
  • Scan the QR code at immigration 

*Even though the QR code means your passport doesn’t get checked, ICA cautions travellers to bring their passports along in case any identity verification is needed at Malaysia’s checkpoints. 

You’ll also need to apply for a Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) . Car owners also need an adio frequency identification (RFID) tag, while motorists only need the VEP. The RFID tag for motorists will be rolled out later. 

Find out more about the VEP with our guide .

From Woodlands Train Checkpoint to JB Sentral, the KTM Shuttle Tebrau gets you across the border in just 5 minutes. 

The best part? You get to avoid queuing at customs and at the bus terminals with the train. 

But the catch is that tickets for the train go FAST. You’ll want to book way ahead if you’re planning to visit JB on a weekend or during peak periods. 

Ticket prices from Singapore are also more expensive:

  • Woodlands to JB: S$5 
  • JB to Woodlands: RM5 (~S$1.42) 

If you want to save, it may be more worth it to buy only a one-way train ticket and go in to JB by bus.

Private hire 

Get a taxi for you and your travel group or private car or van charters so you can get to JB in comfort, without having to stand on a crowded bus or train. 

You can find various companies providing these services on Klook or Shopee. Just make sure to check the reviews before booking!  

2. Peak Travel Times

Be strategic about when you go. If you can, avoid peak hours, weekends, eve and public holidays. 

According to multiple sources, peak hours from Singapore to JB are: 

Weekdays, 8am – 10am, 6pm – 8pm

Saturdays: 8am – 9pm (the time when Singapore day trippers and weekend warriors head in to JB)

Sundays: 2pm – 10pm (the time when Singaporeans are coming back from JB)

Here are some tips to make your journey to JB less arduous: 

  • Avoid rush hours where daily commuters between Singapore and JB head home after work
  • Avoid Friday evenings, Saturdays (around 8am – 1pm), Sundays (around 3pm to 8pm) eve of and public holidays, long weekends
  • Check the traffic conditions online
  • Download apps such as Checkpoint.sg or Beat the Jam to check traffic flow 

Of course, sometimes it’s really just based on your luck and there’s no predicting how bad traffic can be. 

While JB may be a familiar place for many of us, it’s still important to prioritise safety. After all, we’ve heard horror stories of how people have had their belongings stolen right out of their hands ,  had their cars broken into , and even attacked by men with chairs . 

Despite all these incidents, many people also go to JB without trouble. 

Some safety tips: 

  • Don’t have your phone out while walking around, don’t make a call in public
  • Don’t leave your phone or valuables on the table or seats when eating
  • Don’t wear expensive jewellery
  • Don’t park on the street
  • Try not to be out walking on the streets at night
  • Stick to the shopping malls as much as possible
  • Check that your passport has been stamped if going by the manual passport counter

Redditors have even shared tips for drivers such as getting a steering wheel lock so your car doesn’t get towed, parking with the front of the car in, not keeping the wheel straight when parking to prevent getting towed, taking out the cashcard from the reader, etc.

4. Etiquette

A large part of safety also comes with etiquette. As with anywhere you travel to, be respectful of local customs and traditions. Dress modestly, especially when visiting religious sites and basically, behave as you would in your own country. You don’t want to be the loud and rude person laughing and talking loudly. 

Basically, don’t be a nuisance to those around you — and this applies to when you’re in Singapore too. I’m looking at the .. erm generation who watches videos at top volume on public transport. 

Also, just be nice to service staff. Oh, and avoid discussing sensitive topics like politics and race.

5. Exchange Rates

We’re all used to dividing by 3 when mentally calculating the cost of things in Malaysian ringgit. 

With the exchange rate being SGD 1 to $3.4+, the rate is quite negligible whether you’re changing money in Singapore or Malaysia, especially if you don’t plan to change too much. 

If you want to change in Singapore, check Cashchanger.co for a comparison of the latest rates, before heading to the money changer of your choice. 

Changing Malaysian ringgit in JB may make more sense since there is more stock of ringgit in the destination country. But it’s best to avoid the money changers at JB Sentral. Cashchanger also shows the rates of some money changers in JB that you can use to gauge the cost. 

If you’re really particular about which money changer you go to, be sure to read reviews beforehand. 

Keep in mind that exchange rates fluctumattate constantly so it’s best to be realistic and not to expect major savings unless you’re changing $10,000 or more.

If you don’t want to deal with too much cash, there are also multi currency cards like YouTrip, Revolut, Wise and more. 

6. Plan Which Area You Want to Go to

We’re used to getting around Singapore conveniently within 1 hour or so, but JB is pretty huge and it takes time to travel from place to place, especially if you plan to eat, shop, watch a movie, get a massage/nails/hair done, etc. 

Grabs also may take a while to arrive — from as fast as 5 minutes to as long as 25 minutes — especially if you’re in a crowded area with lots of people waiting for their own rides. I mean, have you seen the mess and long traffic lines at JB Sentral and City Square Mall?!

Conversely, you could be in an ulu area where it could take some time for the driver to get to where you are, so buffer in some time if you are going to be travelling around. 

For instance, Bukit Indah is on the western side of the Woodlands Causeway and Legoland is even further west, whereas Taman Mount Austin is northwest. So if you want to take the kids to Legoland, you probably won’t be able to realistically have dinner at Austin within a day, unless you’re staying over and are driving on your own.
