SG Arrival Card

The Singapore Electronic Arrival Card, also known as the SG Arrival Card, was introduced by the Singapore government to replace the previous paper-based D/E (disembarkation/disembarkation) card system. Now, travelers can avoid waiting in line when crossing the country's borders.
Instead, with the new system, they can complete their pre-trip arrival card from the comfort of their own home.
When visitors arrive in Singapore, they do not need to fill out any additional paperwork.
The Singapore Arrival Card is electronically linked to the passport used in the online application, allowing for easy travel across Singapore borders.
The SG arrival card requires visitors to provide passport and personal information, travel plans and health declaration.
All visitors to Singapore must present their SG Pass 3 working days before their planned trip. Citizens of some countries can enter Singapore without a visa.
However, they will need to have an electronic arrival card. As the SG Arrival Card is not a substitute for a visa, visitors from non-visa-exempt countries will need to both hold an appropriate Singapore visa and submit the Singapore e-Medical Declaration.

All travelers entering Singapore, including Singapore citizens, permanent residents, long-term pass holders (student pass, dependent pass, long-term visit pass and work pass), registered tourists Regular travelers and foreign visitors must submit a health declaration.
