[Updated 22 April 2022]

Following the reopening of Singapore and Malaysia land borders for fully vaccinated travellers on 1 April, the Land Transport Authority (LTA), together with the Singapore bus operators (SBS Transit Ltd, SMRT Buses Ltd and Transtar Travel Pte Ltd), will resume the cross-border bus services and taxi operations from 1 May 2022.

At present, fully vaccinated travellers may cross the borders (i.e., Causeway and Second Link) via private vehicles, such as cars and motorcycles. All fully vaccinated travellers, and non-fully vaccinated children aged 12 and below, are permitted to enter Singapore without the need to undergo border health measures, such as testing and quarantine.

Fully vaccinated travellers and non-fully vaccinated children aged 12 and below will no longer be required to take a pre-departure test (PDT) and unsupervised self-administered Antigen Rapid Test (ART) after arriving in Singapore, nor serve a Stay-Home Notice (SHN). This applies to fully vaccinated Malaysian cargo delivery personnel as well.

Fully vaccinated travellers will not be required to apply for entry approvals such as Vaccinated Travel Pass. They must have valid travel documents, such as their passports and Vehicle Entry Permits1 (VEP), before arrival at the Checkpoints. Travellers can use the Vaccination Check Portal on the SafeTravel website to submit their digital vaccination certificates in advance.

From 1 May 2022, commuters travelling to Johor can either board a taxi at the Queen Street taxi terminal or book one through taxi companies with licensed cross-border taxi drivers. For more information, please refer to LTA’s press release.


1Travellers driving foreign-registered cars and motorcycles must apply for a Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) via VEP Digital Services on LTA’s OneMotoring website. They must also have LTA’s approval email and a valid Autopass card before entering Singapore. Foreign-registered vehicles without a valid VEP, LTA’s approval email and a valid Autopass card will be turned back. To facilitate smoother traffic flow, we will no longer accept applications for VEP or Autopass card at the Checkpoints. For more information, please refer to LTA’s website
