Canadian nationals visiting Singapore are required to have a Singapore Electronic Arrival Card  to gain entry to Singapore.

The SG Arrival Card is available for Canadian citizens visiting Singapore for a short stay of up to 30 days.

To successfully receive a Singapore Electronic Arrival Card online, you must follow the requirements for Canadian citizens.

What is the SG Arrival Card for Canada?

Singapore implemented its Arrival Card online system, also known as the SG Arrival Card, to replace the paper-based Disembarkation/Embarkation Card.

The visa policy for Singapore outlines the visa requirements for foreign nationals visiting Singapore. It states that every foreign national must be in possession of an SG Arrival Card.

This electronic document authorizes Canadian holders a single entry into Singapore for up to 30 consecutive days. The moment you leave Singapore borders you cannot re-enter the country using the same Singapore Electronic Arrival Card.

Canadians must note the SG Arrival Card is not a visa. Any traveler wishing to remain in the country for more than 30 days requires a visa in addition to the SG Arrival Card.

Do Canadians Need a Visa to Enter Singapore?

All travelers from Canada staying in Singapore for more than 30 days must have a visa.

It is recommended that they visit the Singaporean consulates in Vancouver or Toronto to find out more about the specific visas available to them and their conditions.

How to Apply for a Singapore Electronic Arrival Card as a Canadian

Citizens of Canada are required to fill in and submit the application form for an SG Arrival Card prior to traveling to Singapore.

The form takes minutes to complete, is easy to submit, and requires the following from Canadian applicants:

  • Personal data (full name, date and place of birth, etc.)
  • Passport details (number, issuance and expiry date)
  • Travel information (arrival and departure date, proof of accommodation)

Canadian nationals must pay the SG Arrival Card processing fee via a debit or credit card.

The Singapore Electronic Arrival Card Online application form is entirely online, so there is no requirement to visit an embassy or consulate in person.

Once the application for an SG Arrival Card is approved, it is linked electronically to the Canadian passport. Therefore, Canadians must travel with the same passport used during the application process.

Requirements for a Singapore Electronic Arrival Card for Canada Passport Holders

Canadian travelers visiting Singapore are advised to read the visa policy for Canadian citizens before starting their application form.

Nationals of Canada should have the following documents and information to hand when filling in their application form:

  • Canadian passport: must be valid for a minimum of 6 months from the date of arrival in Singapore
  • Valid visa or debit card: to pay the SG Arrival Card fee
  • Email address: to send a copy of the Singapore Electronic Arrival Card following approval.

In addition, as part of the application, Canadian citizens are required to include personal information, passport details such as expiry date and passport number, information regarding their travel plans in Singapore, including arrival date and evidence of onward travel, and a health declaration.

Once Canadians have filled in their SG form, it is recommended that they check their answers carefully before submitting. Any error or mistake can lead to delays when processing the Singapore Electronic Arrival Card.

SG Arrival Card’s Processing Time from Canada

The SG Arrival Card application from Canada is usually processed within 1-2 business days. Travelers must use the document to enter Singapore within 3 days of receiving it.

Following approval, the Singapore Electronic Arrival Card is linked electronically to the Canadian passport. In addition, a copy is sent to the email address provided by Canadian nationals during the application process.

Travel to Singapore from Canada

On arrival in Singapore, you will be asked to show a valid Singapore visa (if applicable), plus a yellow fever vaccination certificate (if applicable). You will also be asked to present  your Canadian passport used to apply for the SG Arrival Card.

You must travel to Singapore holding the same passport  used when applying for the SG Arrival Card. If  you lose your Canadian passport, or it is damaged or stolen before your trip, you will need to get another SG Arrival Card with your new passport.

The SG Arrival Card permits expedited entry to the country for Canadian nationals through the following Singaporean ports of entry:

  • Singapore Changi Airport – SIN
  • Woodlands checkpoint
  • Tuas checkpoint
  • Singapore Cruise Centre
  • Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal
  • Changi Point Ferry Terminal
  •  Changi Ferry Terminal

Please remember that you have 3 days to use your Singapore Arrive Card to enter the country, starting from the date it was approved.
