SG Arrival Card

About SG Arrival Card

Singapore Arrival Card (also known as an SG Arrival Card or SGAC) is a mandatory document introduced with the aim of minimizing the COVID-19 spread. The electronic travel declaration was implemented by the Singaporean authorities as a replacement for the paper-based D/E Card (Disembarkation/Embarkation) system.

All travelers planning to visit Singapore must submit the SG Arrival Card up to 3 business days prior to the scheduled arrival in Singapore. It is easy: complete an online form sharing your personal, travel, and health details. Then complete the payment and regularly check your inbox – the confirmation will be sent via email.

Before completing the SGAC, you must prepare a working electronic device with access to the internet, your valid passport, and the requested information. If, after submitting the form, you experience new symptoms, you must immediately complete a new form with updated data.

The approved SG Arrival Card will be digitally connected to your passport, so instead of the printout, just save the confirmation onto your mobile device.

Important: A Singapore Arrival Card does not serve as a visa substitution. If you are from a non-visa-exempt country, you must obtain a Singapore visa and an SG Arrival Card.
