Sentosa is offering all its visitors free entry from now till 31 September 2022 if you enter via these methods:

Sentosa Express From Vivocity

Simply use your EZ-link card to tap in at the gantry to enter for free. If you do not have an EZ-link card, you can simply approach Sentosa’s service ambassadors deployed near the gantry who will let you in for free.

Sentosa Gantry

In addition, you can drive into Sentosa for free via the Sentosa gantry if you are entering the island in a vehicle with a locally registered In-Vehicle Unit (IU).

Those with vehicles that do not have a locally registered IU can also enter for free using your Autopass Card on the card reader at the booth.

As for Goods & Services vehicles, they are allowed free entry on Mondays to Fridays (excluding Public Holidays) from 8am to 6pm.

But outside of this timing, drivers of these vehicles will have to pay an admission charge of $10 per entry unless you have a valid service order or delivery order.

Unfortunately, those riding motorcycles will not be allowed to enter.

Sentosa Gantry: Grab

In addition, you can take a Grab into Sentosa and get in for free. You can even get a discount on your Grab ride.

But, do note that there are a limited amount of codes available. Also, the promo is only valid for pick-ups outside Sentosa, and drop-offs at Sentosa.

Apart from this time-sensitive free admission promotion, visitors can also opt to cycle or walk into Sentosa for free, according to the island’s standard admission rules.

But with the free Sentosa Islander Membership, you can secure free entry to Sentosa one year after you sign up for a membership.

If you are driving in, you will need to register your vehicle with SDC to enjoy the enjoy complimentary drive-in admission via the Sentosa gantry during the validity of the Sentosa Islander Membership.

But, do note that if you are entering without a car registered with SDC, you will be charged at the prevailing admission rates.

Should You Sign up for a Sentosa Islander Membership?

In my opinion, signing up for the Sentosa Island membership is a no-brainer decision as it is currently free. These perks are good to have even if you don’t visit Sentosa often.

Furthermore, there’s no telling when Sentosa will rescind the offer.

The only downside I can think of is that Sentosa will keep marketing its offers to you once you hand over your personal information.

If you are undeterred.

You can apply for a membership here.
