Singapore lifts some Covid restrictions

Most Covid travel restrictions are to be lifted by Singapore from Friday this week (1 April), when the complex Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VLT) scheme involving dedicated flights for double-jabbed passengers and multiple tests will be abolished.

Travellers arriving in Singapore will no longer be required to undergo a self-administered rapid antigen test within 24 hours. However, they must still take a pre-departure test within two days before heading to Singapore and obtain a negative test result.

Short-term visitors must be fully vaccinated and carry proof but they will no longer need to apply for a Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP) or quarantine on arrival.

“Singapore is taking a major step forward to restore air connectivity to the world, to rebuild and reclaim Singapore’s position as a premier air hub”, Singapore authorities said.

“The airport community is gearing up for higher traffic volumes to ensure smooth and good traveller experience. In line with making travel more seamless and convenient for travellers, airport operations will also be streamlined and adjusted.

“Even as we transition to the new Vaccinated Travel Framework, we will preserve our capacity and capabilities to respond quickly if the Covid-19 situation changes and stand ready to adjust our border measures with the appropriate safeguards to ensure public health”, it added.
