Pos Laju, DHL, J&T Express, FedEx: Cost Of Delivery Services From Malaysia To Singapore

You can opt for express service for urgent deliveries.


Due to their shared historical and cultural past, as well as their proximity, migration between Singapore and Malaysia is common, with many families in both communities maintaining strong relational ties.  

Additionally, many Malaysians have moved across the border in search of better work opportunities and higher pay. One practical way for Malaysians to stay connected with family members working in Singapore is by arranging cross-border delivery of items to their addresses in Singapore.  

Things To Consider Before Delivering Items From Malaysia To Singapore 

You should first check if your item is considered as controlled goods or goods subject to restrictions by Competent Authorities (CAs) in Singapore. 

If your item falls under the categories of controlled goods or goods subject to restrictions, you will need to apply for import permits and authorisation from the CAs.  

In addition, goods including new or used items, online purchases and gifts that are delivered from Malaysia to Singapore by post or courier service are subject to Goods Service Tax (GST) and/or duty.  

It’s important to note that the fees charged by delivery service providers for handling your goods may include insurance, permit application fees and clearance fees, which may exceed the purchase price. As such, it’s advisable to check the costs of the delivery of your item with your provider to determine whether sending your item to Singapore is financially viable.
