When we made landfall in Singapore
about four years ago, our entry process was very simple. We were met as we approached the shore by a military vessel that inspected our passports and documentation
. It just took a couple of minutes. Then we went to the Republic of Singapore Yacht Club where Immigration showed up and stamped our passports. One of the easiest entries to any of the countries we visited.
Initially, we had intended to only stay at the RSYC one day as we had reservations at the One-15 Marina, which we had heard was a better place to stay. However, we were told that to transit from the RSYC to the One-15 Marina would require a ‘cruising permit’ and that can only be obtained after taking (and passing) a written exam.
Fair winds and calm seas.
