Frequently asked questions

What is the Electronic Banker’s Guarantee (eBG) Programme?

The eBG Programme is offered by Singapore Customs to speed up the security lodgement process of a BG with them. We will courier the original BG and send the BG digital data via Networked Trade. The main benefits of this opt-in programme include:

  • Shorter processing times as your security lodgement is prioritised
  • Reduced hassle as you do not have to collect and deliver your BG
  • Convenience as you can submit your forms online

More information about the eBG can be found on the Singapore Customs website.


You no longer need to collect the original BG and deliver it to Singapore Customs. UOB will courier the document on your behalf.

If you join the eBG Programme, you will not be able to collect your original BG from our Trade Counters.

The eBG Programme is only applicable for new BGs issued favouring Singapore Customs (Director-General of Customs / Comptroller of Goods and Services Tax).

Amendment or extensions of BGs will not be covered under this programme and will be handled as usual.

No. All standard BG issuance and processing fees from our Trade Pricing Guide apply.

Enquire through the Singapore Customs online feedback form. Select "Traders – Registering to Trade" from the dropdown menu.
