Singapore drops pre-arrival approval for non-vaccinated travellers

Non-fully vaccinated long-term pass holders and short-term visitors aged 13 and above travelling to Singapore will no longer need to apply for entry permit from August 29.

The Ministry of Health said today that these travellers will also not be required to undergo a seven-day quarantine on arrival or take a PCR test at the end of their isolation due to the improving local and global Covid-19 situation.

However, a negative pre-departure test within two days of departure for Singapore as well as compulsory Covid-19 travel insurance for short-term visitors will remain as entry conditions.

With the relaxed entry policy, the health ministry reminds all travellers to defer their travel plans to Singapore should they test positive for Covid-19.

“They should only resume their travel when they test negative, and at least 72 hours from the time they first test positive,” it added.

Vaccinated travellers are advised to resume their trip to Singapore only on or after the seventh day if they continue to test positive, while non-fully vaccinated people aged above 12 years old should only do so on the 14th day if they continue to test positive.

All inbound travellers will continue to file their electronic health declaration up to three days before arrival.
