Crossing the border in private transport to Malaysia from Singapore
One consideration of choosing the mode of transport to travel between Malaysia and Singapore is the type of vehicle to travel on.
For private transport to Malaysia, passengers traveling in minivan, minibus, bus or coach MUST disembark from the vehicle to clear immigration and custom. Passengers must bring along their bagagge, and proceed to the upper floor of the immigration building. Malaysia no longer requires visitor to fill up the white immigration card to enter the country. After clearing the immigration with passport, they will next join the queue to clear the custom. On return to Singapore, the same procedure is followed. It may be time consuming to join the immigration and custom clearance queue in the immigration building at Singapore and Malaysia Border – repeating the immigration clearance 4 times in total.
Passengers traveling in cars and MPVs are not required to disembark from vehicle, to clear immigration and custom at the second level – save hassle and time (to bring along baggage to the upper floor of the immigration building to queue and clear). Passports belonging to the traveling passengers shall be passed to the driver who will pass all passports to the immigration office at the immigration booth as he drives through the border. Next he stops the vehicle for the immigration officer to inspect the baggage in the vehicle. If there is no baggage or inspection is not required, the driver proceeds to drive to destination. If required, the custom officer will require the respective passenger to open the baggage for checking.
When hiring a vehicle for private transport to Malaysia from Singapore, we recommend to travel in cars or MPV for convenience. It will save much time. If you have bigger group, you may opt to break the group to travel in 2 or more MPVs.
