How to travel by bus from Singapore to Malacca or Kuala Lumpur?

Traveling by bus from Singapore to Malacca or Kuala Lumpur is a convenient and cost-effective option. However, it is important to take into consideration the border custom clearance process. Here are some steps to help you plan your bus trip:

  1. Check visa requirements: Ensure you have the proper visa or travel documents required for entry into Malaysia. Singapore citizens and Permanent Residents do not need visa to enter Malaysia, but other travelers might require a valid passport and visa.

  2. Check bus schedules and book your tickets in advance: There are several bus companies that operate between Singapore and Malacca or Kuala Lumpur, such as Transnasional, Delima Express, and Causeway Link. Check the schedules for the different companies and book your tickets in advance to ensure you get the best deal and to reserve a seat. We recommend RedBus, a one-stop portal to buy all the bus tickets you need.

  3. Choose your departure point and destination: In Singapore, buses to Malacca and Kuala Lumpur depart from several locations, such as Golden Mile Complex, Queen Street, and Boon Lay. In Malacca, buses arrive at the Melaka Sentral Bus Terminal, and in Kuala Lumpur buses arrive at the Puduraya Bus Terminal or other terminals.

  4. Arrive at the departure point on time: Make sure you arrive at the departure point at least 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time. This will give you enough time to check in, find your bus, and board.

  5. Bring your passport or ID: You will need to present your passport or ID when boarding the bus, as you will be crossing the border between Singapore and Malaysia.

  6. Clear customs at the border: When you reach the border, you will need to clear customs and immigration. Be prepared to show your passport and other travel documents as well as any necessary visa.

  7. Enjoy the journey: The bus journey from Singapore to Malacca or Kuala Lumpur usually takes around 3-4 hours.
