The Singapore-Malaysia Special Working Committee has agreed that the transport of all types of goods between Malaysia and Singapore will be facilitated during the duration of Malaysia's Movement Control Order. As such, those conveying essential services, or supplies (e.g. lorry drivers, vegetable supply truckers, frozen supply truckers) via land and sea crossings will be exempted from MOM's entry approval and SHN requirements.


Port of Singapore remains open for cargo operations and marine services, including bunkering, ship supplies and shipyard repairs, in order to maintain commerce by sea and not disrupt global supply chains.

Strategic level

 Taking guidance from Singapore’s Multi-Ministry Taskforce on COVID-19,
which coordinates and implements Singapore’s measures to tackle COVID19.

 Ensuring that we keep our global supply chain strong and undisrupted as we
continue to facilitate the movement of goods, including essential supplies.

Operational level

 Use of technology to minimize face-to-face meetings (e.g. conducting
meetings and discussions through video conferences)

 Encouraging officers to practise social distancing (e.g. greater spacing of
seats where practicable, limiting the size and duration of meetings)

 Adopting split team arrangements to minimize cross-contact among staff,which is part of our business continuity planning

 Encouraging good personal hygiene practices (e.g. notices put up to remind
staff to practise good personal hygiene)

 Monitoring of officers’ body temperature twice a day

 Deferring all non-essential travel abroad to minimise risk levels

 Encouraging the use of e-services
