Top News Singapore eases border measures for travellers from Taiwan By TTG Asia / Posted on 6 August, 2021 13:11 Travellers entering Singapore from Taiwan will not need to serve a 14-day stay-home notice (SHN) period from 23.59 on August 7, if they test negative for Covid-19 upon arrival. In a statement Thursday, the Ministry of Health (MOH) said all travellers entering Singapore with travel history to Taiwan within the last 21 days prior to departure will undergo a Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test upon arrival, and will be allowed to go about their activities in Singapore if they test negative. Singapore to exempt travellers from Taiwan from serving stay-home notice from August 7 if they test negative for Covid-19 on arrival The same rule applies to short-term visitors with travel history to Taiwan within the last 21 days before departure for Singapore. They can now apply for an air travel pass for entry into Singapore on or after August 12. The easing of border measures for Taiwan travellers comes as the Covid-19 situation in Taiwan has improved, MOH said. Currently, travellers from Taiwan are subjected to an on-arrival Covid-19 PCR test, a 14-day SHN at a dedicated facility or place of residence, and another PCR test before the end of the SHN period. MOH also said that travellers who are already serving their 14-day SHN at their place of residence as of 23.59 on August 7 will still be required to complete their 14-day SHN and exit swab.
