The Ministry of Health will tighten border measures, quarantine policies and testing protocols for travelers arriving from Taiwan.

Key Points:

  • Effective May 17, Singaporean citizens, permanent residents, and long-term pass holders traveling to Singapore with travel history to Taiwan within 21 days before departure will serve a 14-day, stay-home notice (SHN) at a designated facility, followed by a seven-day stay at the traveler’s residence. PRC tests will be conducted upon arrival, day 14 of the SHN and before the end of the 21-day period.
  • Short-term travelers holding an Air Travel Pass with travel history to Taiwan within 21 days before departure to Singapore will be barred from entering the country.
  • Individuals with travel history to Taiwan within 21 days before departure who are not Singaporean citizens or permanent residents must provide a negative PCR test conducted within 72 hours of departure in order to enter the country.
  • All visitors with recent history to Taiwan who entered Singapore between May 15 and May 16 will be subject to COVID-19 PCR tests on day three and day seven of their arrival in Singapore.
