Dear Boaters,

Please take note of the revised reporting procedures for Notification of Arrival (NOA) at Singapore for vessels less than 500GT.

With effect from 16 July 2016, vessels less than 500GT are required to state the Purpose of Port Call and the types of arms and/or explosives the vessel is carrying, if any. Arms and/or explosives onboard need to be declared to the Singapore Police Force here.

Any false or mis-declaration of arms will result in a fine of $10,000. In addition, a fine of $5,000 will be imposed if the strong room requirements by the Authorities are not met. For questions regarding the declaration of arms and/or explosives, you may contact the Singapore Police Force at This email address is being protected from spambots.

A gentle reminder that Captain/Owner must email the information on your vessel to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at least 12 hours before entering Singapore waters. Please refer to the updated NOA.

Thank you for your cooperation.
