About SG Arrival Card

The SG Arrival Card is a health declaration introduced due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic as a precautionary measure aiming to avoid the further spread of the virus within Singapore. The SGAC was launched as a substitution for the previously existing paper-based health card.

The Singapore Arrival Card is obligatory for all countries nationals who want to visit Singapore. The only exceptions are vaccinated residents who arrive in Singapore through the land entry points and persons who travel to Singapore for transit purposes without immigration clearance.

Travelers can apply for the SG Arrival Card entirely online. They are required to fill out the application form, attach the requested documents, and cover the fee. The confirmation is then delivered to the applicant’s email address as a PDF document.

At the borders, when travelers arrive in Singapore, they may need to present their valid passport, onward ticket, as well as a visa and a yellow fever vaccination certificate. While the SG Arrival Card is connected to the passport, it is better to save it on the device just in case of some issues.

The Singapore Electronic Arrival Card must be submitted 3 days in advance of arrival to Singapore and allows only one entry into the country.

Note that the SG Arrival Card is not a visa , and nationals without visa-free access must have both a visa and a health declaration card in order to visit Singapore.

Important: Although the pandemic is over, the government of Singapore has not lifted the requirement to complete the SGAC. Submit your SGAC via our website and avoid any unnecessary hassle upon your arrival in Singapore.
