To visit visa-free, you are required to obtain an SG Arrival Card to enter the city-state, which we expand upon below. The good news is Byevisa can provide your SG Arrival Card with the minimal amount of effort required!
Famed for its architectural wonders and culinary delights, Singapore is a popular travel destination for Malaysian travellers. If you can’t wait to get your trip started to this city-state, keep reading to find out all about the Singapore visa for Malaysians.
About the Singapore Visa for Malaysian Citizens
Malaysian passport holders are exempt from needing a visa for short visits. You can enjoy all the varied sights this city-state has to offer for up to 30 days without needing a travel pass. However, you are still required to obtain an SG Arrival Card to travel here, which Byevisa can provide for you.
The travel authorisation facilitates the submission of personal information, trip details and a health declaration. The electronic admission document should be submitted up to 3 days in advance of the date you plan to enter the country.
Your document will be valid for 14 days and can be used as Single-Entry, meaning you can use it to enter the country only once. There is no government fee charged for this document but you will need to pay the Byevisa processing fee, which covers administration costs.
It’s important to note that the SG Arrival Card is not the same as a visa. If you’re required to obtain authorisation for travel, you will still need to apply for that separately or seek advice via an embassy or consulate.
SG Arrival Card for Malaysians Application Process
You can complete your application online with Byevisa, as we can facilitate your authorisation through our electronic service.
To apply for authorisation, you’ll have to provide personal data, some details about your intended stay and health information.
For your application to be approved, you’ll need to have:
- An eligible passport that is valid for at least 6 months from the date you intend to leave Singapore.
- Your completed application form.
- A current email address to receive your document.
- An active debit or credit card to pay the processing fee.
Once you complete the application and the document is issued, we will send it to your email address right away so you can print it and take it with you on your trip to Singapore.
Being prepared in advance of your trip will save you time at immigration clearance. If you don’t apply for authorisation electronically before arriving in Singapore, you will be required to do so on arrival, which could mean a lengthy delay.
