Less than six months passport validity

Has anyone recently tried to enter Singapore with less than six months of remaining passport validity? I've just realised my daughter's passport has five-and-a-bit months left. We will be staying in Singapore for just a few days so her passport will still have five-and-a-bit months validity on departure from Singapore. Thanks

I've entered Singapore with only a month left on my (non-Singapore) passport validity. The immigration officer was kind enough to remind me of that and asked me to renew it asap. That was pre-COVID time though.

Pre-Covid, I tried to go to SIN with about five months left. Got to ORD to check in and was denied. They said that SIN could send me back on the next flight and fine United for this. Had to postpone my trip until I got a new passport. I wouldn't risk it even if they let you an the flight.

I am surprised the airline actually let you check in at all. Timatic would have stated clearly that you need 6 months passport validity in order to enter Singapore.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention that I checked in the flight with another passport.
