As a result, the land area has increased to about 720 km² today and is expected to grow by almost 100 km² (to about 800 km²) by 2030.

Moving to Singapore - Costs
Because there are so many variables, it is often difficult to estimate the cost of international removals, as they can vary considerably. However, you should consider the following factors when planning your move to Singapore.
 
Mode of transport: Moving by air is generally the fastest, but also more expensive. Alternatively, there is transport by sea freight, which is usually cheaper. See our information on sea freight and air freight for details on container sizes, among other things.
 
Size of the move: The size and weight of the possessions, will affect the cost, as the calculation of the price is based on the weight and space requirements of the goods to be transported.
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please fill out our form accurately and completely so that we can provide you with a binding quote.
 
Packing: Special moving boxes and packaging are the best solution to ensure that fragile items are transported safely.
 
Moving to Singapore, like any foreign move, is a challenge. In addition, there is the language of transport and distances.
 
Often both modes of transport are used in combination, the most important by air freight and your remaining goods by sea freight.
 
Official languages: Tamil, Malay, Chinese and EnglishSingapore ranked ninth in the Human Development Index in 2018. Singapore is one of the richest countries (and cities) in the world and is considered one of the cities with the highest cost of living in the world. The city-state is also one of the ten most visited cities in the world, with more than eleven million foreign tourists a year, and is considered Asia's most important financial centre, along with Hong Kong. Singapore is a multi-ethnic state in which Chinese, Malays and Indians make up the largest parts of the population.  Most people who move to Singapore from Germany usually bring a large part of their possessions with them. However, to ensure that not only the transport, but the entire relocation goes off without complications, you should take care of the formalities as best you can beforehand.

Singapore

The name "Singapore" comes from Sanskrit and is composed of Singha (सिंह siṃha "lion") and Pura (पुर pura "city"), meaning lion city. According to legend, Sang Nila Utama, a prince from Palembang, the then capital of the Srivijaya Empire, reached Singapore in 1299 and founded the kingdom of Singapura. After his arrival, the prince is said to have seen a lion in the dense jungle - but it was probably a Malaysian tiger, as no lions lived in this region.
 
The island state of Singapore comprises one main island, three larger islands and 58 other smaller islands. It is located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, separated from it by the Johor Strait. The islands are the southernmost spur of the Rear Indian Peninsula and the Asian mainland. To the west, the Strait of Malacca, one of the busiest waterways in the world, is touched. The Strait of Singapore lies to the south. Neighbouring countries are Malaysia on the Malay Peninsula in the north and Indonesia with Sumatra and the Riau Islands in the south.
 
The total area is just under the size of Hamburg. Land reclamation plays a major role for Singapore. Earth material is taken from the country's own mountains, the seabed or from neighbouring countries and piled up in the adjacent sea. As a result, the land area has increased from 581.5 km² in the 1960s to 710.2 km² today and is expected to grow by another 100 km² (to around 800 km²) by 2030.    Singapore is a republic.

The Johor-Singapore Causeway, a man-made causeway in the north, connects the main island with Johor Bahru on the mainland, which belongs to Malaysia. Another link to the mainland (Malaysia-Singapore Second Link) exists in the west through a bridge leading to Gelang Patah.The highest elevation of the island state is Bukit Timah Hill in the Bukit Timah Reserve at 163.63 metres.
 
The climate is tropical and humid. The temperature is slightly above 28 degrees Celsius for most of the year. During the months of October to February, temperatures are only slightly lower than the rest of the year due to the monsoon, with heavier rainfall.
 
There is plenty of choice for expatriates, i.e. many international schools. Singapore also has three state universities.
