Top News Singapore eyed for Australia’s next travel bubble By TTG Asia / Posted on 22 April, 2021 13:51 Australia is looking at Singapore as its next target for a travel bubble agreement, after its quarantine-free travel bubble with New Zealand took off this week. The commencement of the travel bubble – the first for both countries – comes more than a year after air links between the two neighbours were suspended due to the ongoing pandemic.

With the opening of the trans-Tasman travel bubble and the global vaccine rollout, the Australian government is looking to forge similar agreements with other low Covid-risk countries, including Singapore. Local news outlets quoted Australia’s deputy prime minister Michael McCormack as saying that the government remains “in discussions” with Singapore on a potential travel bubble between the two countries. He also said that discussions with the Singaporean government were in its initial phase, and that Singapore was top of the list for future travel bubbles.
