As mentioned above, apart from the visa that Indians need to travel to Singapore, you must apply for a Singapore Arrival Card, an electronic admission document, so that travelers entering for tourism can do so without difficulty.
Currently, we do not process visas by this means, but we process the Singapore Arrival Card. To learn more about it, continue reading the following information.
What is the SG Arrival Card, and how can I get it?
The Singapore Arrival Card is an electronic document that has replaced the traditional paper landing/embarkation card. This is a mandatory entry requirement for all domestic or international travelers arriving in the country.
This document also functions as a travel health certificate to track and stop the spread of COVID-19 in the country. The Singapore Ministry of Health can also use the document to trace travelers who need some form of care and treatment for COVID-19.
The process to obtain this document is extremely easy and accessible. But please note that the SG Arrival Card is neither an electronic tourist visa nor a valid business visa for Singapore and cannot be used as such. However, you can walk around the airport without a visa; this is the only visa free transit facility.
Indians carrying this travel document may enter the country for a maximum of 14 days Per Entry It is a Single Entry visa document and expires 30 days after issued or until passport expires**.
If you wish to obtain it, just follow these three simple steps for visa application:
First Step: Complete the iVisa questionnaire with your personal and travel details. After that, you can choose the type of processing.
Second Step: Make the payment for the transaction. But before that, ensure all the information entered is correct. If the personal data doesn't match, the process will be canceled.
Third Step: Finally, attach all the required documents and confirm.
Once the process is complete, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not find it in your inbox, it may be in the SPAM folder.
Can I get any travel documents as an Indian citizen living in Malaysia?

The important thing is that you have the necessary documentation at hand. For example, you need an Indian visa, not a Malaysian visa or passport.

Regarding COVID-19 testing, all visitors 13 years of age or older who are fully vaccinated are exempt from having a negative PCR or antigen test result. However, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated visitors must show a negative PCR test result within 48 hours before departure.

Finally, no citizen must undergo quarantine when entering the country.
