Learn More: SG Arrival Card + Health Declaration
Last updated: June 2022
One of the most outstanding cities you can visit in Asia is Singapore. The futuristic ambience and mixture of cultures of this independent state are reflected in the magnificent gastronomy and imposing building designs. But before you travel to this special country, make sure to get the right travel documents, such as the Singapore Arrival Card (sometimes called SG Arrival Card) and Electronic Health Declaration.
With help from iVisa.com, you’ll be able to apply for these travel documents in just a few minutes. The Singapore electronic arrival card will then be linked to your passport and checked when you enter the country.
What is the Singapore Arrival Card?
The SG Arrival Card is a replacement document for the traditional paper Disembarkation/ Embarkation Card (DE Card) and is a mandatory entry requirement for all foreign visitors and permanent residents that arrive in Singapore. It is a customs registration form that doubles as a travel health certificate to safeguard public health. To apply for the Singapore electronic arrival card, you have to provide your recent travel information, health status, as well as personal and contact details.
The data from the electronically linked Health Declaration and arrival card can also be used by the Ministry of Health of Singapore for reference at local healthcare institutions where the traveler may be treated in case of a medical emergency.
The process to get the Singapore Arrival Card is completely online, fast, and simple. Please note that the SG Arrival Card is not a visa and cannot be used like one. Check the most up-to-date visa requirements for your nationality in our convenient visa checker widget.
Which nationalities are eligible to apply for the Singapore Arrival Card?
All nationalities are required to fill out the SG Arrival Card at least 3 days prior to their arrival date in the country, including Singapore residents.
How many times can I use the Singapore Arrival Card and Health Declaration?
The SG Arrival Card is a Single Entry document and is only valid once. Once issued, the document is valid for 30 days after issued or until passport expires, meaning you have two weeks to enter the country from the moment it was issued. It has to be filled out at least 3 days before you visit Singapore.
What documents do I need to apply for a Singapore Electronic Arrival Card and Health Declaration?
We require the following documents and information to submit your SG Arrival Card application:

Do I need an SG Arrival Card and Health Declaration Form if I’m transiting through Singapore?

Required Documents to Apply
Instead of the traditional paper Disembark/Embark Card, travelers would be able to show only their passport for the Immigration Officer to find the Electronic Arrival Card + Health Declaration in their immigration system.
Travelers must have a passport with at least 6 months of validity from the planned date of entry.
You can apply for the SG Arrival Card + Health Declaration up to 3 days in advance of your arrival in Singapore.
The SG Arrival Card + Health Declaration has the purpose of facilitating the entry to Singapore but it DOES NOT replace a visa. If your country requires it, the immigration officers at the airport will ask for your Visa. Bear in mind that some nationalities require a paper visa. If that is the case for you, we suggest you approach the nearest embassy.
