The Govt of Singapore on Monday announced that starting from November 29 it will allow quarantine-free entry of fully-vaccinated people from India under its Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTLs) programme.
Singapore is in talks with India to resume scheduled commercial flight services between India and Singapore.
The announcement comes as the country is aiming to rebuild air links with one of Changi Airport’s top three markets. Initially, Singapore is planning to start two daily services each from Chennai, Delhi, and Mumbai by Nov 29 under the Vaccinated Travel Lane.
“We intend to launch a VTL for India for entry into Singapore from 29 November 2021 and will open VTP applications from 22 November 2021.”Advertisement
It must be noted that at present only repatriation flights under the Govt. of India’s Vande Bharat Mission are allowed to operate between India and Singapore.
Now, Singapore is slowly re-opening its borders and has expanded quarantine-free travel to nearly a dozen countries, including Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, France, Britain, and the United States, under its Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTL) programme.
