Essential Singapore Tips From Arrival To Departure

Sanjana Sule, December 15, 2015

Immigration Process:

All visitors to Singapore must return a departure card (which you will receive while entering Singapore at the Immigration control) at Immigration control when leaving Singapore. Don’t lose this document as that will result in loads of paperwork. Keep it safe and present it later at the time of departure. Once the documents are sorted, nothing else will come in the way. So just make the best of your times with the best Singapore tour packages we have for you.

Health care in Singapore is world-class and expensive. Hence it’s recommended that travelers buy travel insurance for their Singapore holiday. Also, try to avoid poorly cooked food, stale food and be precautious before having seafood.


Most hotels and restaurants levy a 10% service charge and thus there is no compulsion of tipping in Singapore. Tipping is not a way of life in Singapore; however, it is appreciated for excellent service.


Singapore is considered one of the safest countries to travel to in the world. However, travelers should take precautions like not flashing their jewelry at night time, avoid carrying heavy cash and passport while shopping, and not visiting quiet areas during odd hours.

Local rules to follow:

The citizens of Singapore are very law-abiding and thus travelers should also follow the same. For instance, there are fines issued for just about any offense in Singapore, including SGD 50 for jaywalking (pedestrians crossing the road without following the traffic), SGD 1000 for littering, and SGD 500 for eating, drinking, or chewing gum on the MRT. In fact, there are even fines for not flushing public toilets so it goes without saying that getting involved in illegal drugs is not advisable, trafficking carries a maximum penalty of death. Smoking is banned in all air-conditioned places, as well as within 5 meters from any building entrance. Violation of smoking laws can incur a maximum fine of SGD 1,000.
