Queries Singapore to Malaysia (asian)

Hello everyone, I am again here with a very important question.

We (My husband, my 2 yrs old son & I) are planning to travel to Singapore 4 or 5 days and then to Malaysia for 2- 3 days holding Asian (Pakistani) passport. Can any one tell us while crossing the border from Singapore to Malaysia by bus is very chaotic and pathetic ?

Do we need to show $1000/person while crossing the border? Is it necessary? What will happen if we don't have this much amount?

Will it be a bad decision to travel by bus to Malaysia with a 2 yr lad?

Are there any buses which are luxurious? If yes, what is the ticket cost per person and timings of these buses leaving for Singapore?

TA forums are classified by destinations. Immigration questions regarding Malaysia should be posted in the Malaysia forum. If I'm not wrong, you need to apply an Evisa or eNTRI beforehand.

The members here mostly recommend flight over bus for a trip to KL. Unfortunately no one can look into a crystal ball and accurately predict the cross border traffic situation since it is the result of independent decisions of 400,000 to 430,000 individuals every day.

There are too many bus operators and timings for someone to list for you. Pls understand we are just volunteers here helping out fellow travellers, not travel agents so we can't possibly do all the work for you. You can look up the various operators mentioned in the discussion thread I linked to in your previous thread or use http://www.easybook.com to search. If you choose a bus operator simply based on price and timing, chances are you will get an unpleasant experience. Research before booking anything, not after.

Fatimah F, hi

Start from visa questions....SIN and MAL are two different countries and each visit requires a separate visa for Pakistani passport holders. If you plan to enter and exit from SIN ( with side trip to MAL by bus) you need a multi visa for Singapore...

Pakistan passport holders can apply for eVisa through the official Malaysian Government portal. There is no Visa on Arrival or eNTRI option. tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293951-i7006-k105…

You guys are really a big help.

Yeah definitely it requires Malaysian visa to enter it, i need to ask what is the situation as I have read that officials made it really terrible to cross the border and asking too many questions plus they want to show us atleast $1000 (SGD) per person otherwise donot let to pass the border. Is it so?
