The Singapore Arrival Card Policy

The successful submission of your arrival card information does not guarantee entry into Singapore. On arrival to Singapore, your eligibility for entry will be assessed on its own merits. All information provided by you, or on your behalf by a designated third party, must be true and correct. Please note that the SG Arrival Card is not a visa.

Singapore entry passport validity

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Singapore. If you are intending to transit Singapore to neighbouring countries, make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months. You may be refused entry or turned away by airlines if your passport does not meet this requirement.

Entry is normally refused if you have a damaged passport or pages missing. Make sure your passport is in good condition before arriving in Singapore. Being refused entry can result in significant cost and a long stay at the airport.

Singapore entry rules in response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Anyone who has been in the UK or South Africa for any period in the previous 14 days before travel, including for transit, will not be able to enter Singapore. This includes those who previously had permission to enter Singapore. Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents are still able to enter Singapore, but are required to undertake 14 days quarantine at a government facility on arrival, followed by 7 days quarantine at their place of residence. Travellers will be required to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival and at the end of their quarantine period

The Singapore Ministry of Manpower will only allow Singapore work pass holders and/or their dependents to enter or re-enter Singapore if their employers have obtained prior approval from the Ministry. Further details can be found on the Ministry of Manpower website. You will be refused entry or risk deportation if you do not comply with this requirement. You also risk having your work pass revoked.

COVID-19 test (PCR test)

Everyone, apart from Singapore citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents, entering Singapore from the UK (and from most other countries) must obtain a negative COVID-19 test (PCR test) within 72 hours of travel.

You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test.

Once you have permission to enter Singapore you must submit an online health declaration in advance of your arrival. Otherwise, it will need to be completed upon entry and may result in delays to immigration clearance. Short term visitors are required from 31 January 2021 to have medical insurance of at least S$30,000.
