In an amendment from their original statement, Singaporeans are now no longer required to submit the Digital Arrival Card prior to arriving in Malaysia. 

When originally reported, all non-Malaysian permanent residents were required to submit a Digital Arrival Card within three days of travelling to Malaysia. This has now been amended to exempt all Singaporean citizens as well as diplomatic passport holders, Brunei General Certificate of Identity holders, and Thailand Border Pass holders.

Though all other foreigners are still required to submit the Digital Arrival Card, filling up the card is encouraged but still voluntary for the time being. The implementation and enforcement was initially due to begin on December 8 but a grace period has been put in place before the rule fully goes into action. 

After conflicting information from multiple sources over the last few days on whether or not the Digital Arrival Card was actually compulsory, this clarification has now made the situation much clearer for all Singaporean travellers.
