The Govt of Singapore on Thursday further relaxed the vaccinated travel arrangements, all travellers who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 and children aged 12 and under will be able to enter Singapore with only a pre-departure Covid-19 test starting from 11.59 p.m. on March 31.
Moreover, vaccinated travellers will no longer be needed to take only specified flights (Vaccinated Travel Lane Flights) to enter Singapore quarantine-free, and also will be no requirement to take a Covid-19 antigen rapid test (ART) within 24 hours of arrival.
However, Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH) stated on Thursday (March 24) that the pre-departure test, which is administered two days before departure, will stay in place for the time being.
Singapore’s new travel scheme named the Vaccinated Travel Framework will replace the existing Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) scheme.
New Guidelines For Travellers To Singapore
Travellers can take any flight option available to travel to Singapore from any of the Indian cities. There is no need to apply for the Vaccinated Travel Pass entry approval anymore.
Travellers to Singapore will need only to take a pre-departure Covid-19 test 2 days before departure from India. No other test is required when they are in Singapore.
Singapore will also ease restrictions in the country with effect from 29 March, including:
- Maximum size for social gatherings will be doubled from the current 5 to 10 pax. Up to 10 persons can dine together at the same table.
- While wearing masks indoors remains mandatory, wearing of masks outdoors will be optional.
- Consumption and sale of alcohol at F&B establishments after 10.30pm are allowed. Live performances will also be allowed to resume at all venues.
It must be noted that long-term pass holders and short-term visitors aged 13 and up who are not completely vaccinated are generally not permitted to enter Singapore.
Long-term pass holders who are medically ineligible for immunizations, long-term pass holders aged 13 to 17, and long-term pass holders and short-term visitors with other valid entry clearances will be exempted.
These tourists must take a pre-departure test two days before their flight to Singapore, a seven-day stay-home notice (SHN), and a polymerase chain reaction test at the end of their SHN period.
