Does anyone has an experience? I am planning to go in this weekend but realise that my passport will expire in Oct this year. Will the immigration (either in Singapore or Malaysia side) let you through? Thanks.

I think it's minimum 6 months for International Passport.

It is advisable not too as it all depends on luck. Its not SG side, its MY side. If custom officer good mood.. he/she might give you warning only. If not, it will not allow you entry.

Best is get it renewed.

Best is they let you in... then making things difficult when you are coming out.

I do not advice you to try your luck..

If they discover that u have less than 6 mths, They will let you thru after some delay and with a fees.... I kana b4.

Not worth the hassale for a game of 18 hole. Sort out your passport and enter MY with a clear & relaxed mind ~ they may not stop you when you enter, keep your fingers crossed when you leave… HELP

With a 'expedite fee'? How much would that be?

All, thanks for the advice. I guess it is not worth the risk to take chances and end up spoiling the day for everyone. Cheers.

They are well trained to pick this up.
Just be prepared to get questioned and pay some special permit fee

I went in even with 3mths to expiry. No issue. Only SG customs reminded me. 
Think 1 Msia did ask if I'm staying in Msia and I told him day trip.

Generally JB Immigration will treat Singapore passport holders differently because of historical and geographical proximity, especially if you declare a day trip. JB Immigration knows 90% of Singaporeans entering JB by car will not stay longer than a few days.

However this is an unwritten rule so they can if they want stop you or ask you to turn back.

5 mths to go generally is safe for day trip though sg immigration may remind you. 
Most of them said is true,immigration in MY may try to be funny.   
Ha, if you are the golfer who likes to take risk to try a birdie then likely u may want to try this .. but if u always play safe then better not.... Razz
