Dear fellow sifus,

I have a customer from Singapore that actually wants my team and I to travel to Singapore to cover their actual wedding day photography and videography.

1. Do I need a work permit for this trip? Or is it okay to shoot weddings there for a day?
2. Do I need a permit to fly a drone there? (I read in some websites that as long as the drone is less than 7kg, we are allowed to fly at those flying zones. But just wanna be sure.)

Your valuable replies will be highly appreciated. notworthy.gif notworthy.gif

Contract in MY. Paid in MYR. Need permit for what?

Most of SG are drone restricted areas. Only a few permitted areas allowed to fly drones....

Noted on the drone part. The wedding is at Marina Bay Sands. Do you have any idea where I can check the permitted areas to fly the drones?

hello ,,

If you are malaysian ..( other then local singaporean ) ..doing the works in return for a payment .... YES you surely needs working permit .... not only working permit ..you also need to declare the invoice for the work done in singapore ....


YES .. that is BY the LAW .... ( pray hard hard .. no police raid on the function date and location )

flying a drone .. it is not allowe in singapore by LAW .. unless with a local permit ....

having all said .... it is depend on you ... abiding the LAW or to take risk .... . it is your called ... and you are the one whom is going to bear all the outcome

That is arguable. For example, If I'm contracted in MY, paid in MY, but asked to go SG for meeting (work), I don't need a permit. The transaction did not happen on foreign land. Thoughts?

P.S. No idea where to get permit. Sure rejected wan laa... especially in MBS.

MBS a bit hard.

The safest place for you to fly a drone is near Marina Barrage (1.278892, 103.871506), this is the place where most drone enthusiasts go.

I've seen people fly drone near SG Flyer but risky.
