Jetting off for a year-end adventures? Stay organised in style with these passport covers and travel bags
As much as we love globetrotting, we’re admittedly not the best at staying organised on our travels. Misplaced documents, frantic scrambling of phones and passports, and one too many searches for our cables later, we’re throwing in the towel – it’s officially time for us to get our act together. The one thing we need to keep our travel essentials in place? A multi functional passport holder. Ahead, some of our favourite stores to shop for travel organisers in Singapore.
Unsurprisingly, this Swedish stationery behemoth offers a beautifully-designed travel collection. Take your pick from leather organisers with passport pockets and card compartments to travel document wallets in striking silver with multiple pockets for boarding passes, itineraries, and other important stuff.

Muji’s travel accessories are the secret to on-the-go living. The passport cases – available in colours like grey, navy and black – come in slim cases ($11.90) for maximum compactability. But our pick’s got to be is the ones with the clear pocket ($33) as it keeps hotel cards, keys and currencies in place, along with credit cards and passports.

Made with the softest leather, it’ll age beautifully, so you can keep it for a lifetime.
