sgd1k? i think if u have more than 3 people with u and u stayed in msia for more than 24 hours, it should be ok.

why dont u check their website? or ask the ica officer when u r on your way in to jb?
My wife is a long term pass holder, so only i eligible for the gst relief of $150 for less than 48hours of stay.

I will be bringing back around RM 4K worth of fans/lighting back to Singapore. Should I be kiasi and declare GST via the Custom@SG first? Or try my luck see whether they check my car or not? I will be going in on a Monday via Woodland custom around 5pm timing.
Stay a night in JB. May cost less than the GST difference.

Nope. You haven't factor in the Q for Buses and jams. At Kranji, take more than 1hr even in early morning. Then Q again after custom. Then jam on roads. And you have to multiply by 2 as its both sides
I was thinking of going ytd, but after hearing of all the jams, decided to go instead after sch holidays...

If they want to be strict about it, staying 1 night will still be less than 48 hours.

Malaysia is really a nice place to shop and relax. Best to just stay for several days to make it worth

Went in today to Tebrau Aeon. I took bus to Woodland interchange and then 913 to woodland checkpoint.

SG custom, cleared no many people. However, went down stair to take bus, long queue... not as long as expected. just some metres away from the escalator. I went to CW bus queue, very few people and 2 CW buses came in a row. Hardly see any SBS buses insight. Even from the bridge walking into departure hall, hardly see any buses. Pay RM3. cross over MY CIQ, cleared custom with fewer people due to many stuck at SG side.

Coming back, around 4.20pm. Took blue buses.... same thing, SBS bus queue also near to escalator... bit too long. However, there was a crowd of tourists waiting for their buses which added more packing to the place.

Anyway, there were several blue buses waiting to cross over, So I got up and pay RM2 when alighting. The bus driver must be laughing all the way as the bus was full of people. Extra income man. Causeway no jam... reached home as expected.
Perhaps, it is just one of those fortunate day.... lets hope it remain such.

Give it a try, nothing to loose. I usually cleared MY custom just before 10am. This morning, I took a feeder service from my place in Tampines to the old Regional Library and took 168 to Woodland interchange (took 913 to check point). Left my house just before 8am. by the time I cleared SG custom it was 9.22am waiting for CW bus to cross over to MY. I cleared MY custom at 9.56am

This is my typical time even during normal time. Of course, there are the occasional cases in the past, cleared MY custom around 10.30am. SG Custom was fill with lots of people.

Example, sometime in October on a Tuesday morning... SG custom was flooded with people... custom queue was near to entrance door. Lots of blue factory buses and coaches. Automated clearing took 30min...
However, because of this, there are few people taking buses and there were plenty on that day. Once I got out and went into MY side, very few people to queue with to clear custom

Do you drive? If not, not much good BKT around the area, I find the one at near KSL to be rather bad. Can have dim sum (a lot of choices); or a fragrant and smooth cup of kopi at Hua Mui. Kway teow soup nice too.

Assume the worst. They check all compartments of your vehicle. Get them declared. No way even with a full car can you bring in S$1000 worth of imports. For a first-timer, maybe they will give you a warning but still make you pay the full tax.
