The Singaporean government has announced that it will ease its COVID-19 entry and health requirements on April 1.

Key Points: 

  • Beginning April 1, Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTLs) will be replaced with the Vaccinated Travel Framework (VTF). Countries will be classified as either “General Travel” or in the “Restricted Category.” Under the VTF:
    • VTL flights and ferries will no longer be used.
    • Fully vaccinated individuals traveling from countries on the “General Travel” list will be able to take any flight or ferry to Singapore and will not have to quarantine, test or carry out a Stay-Home Notice (SHN) upon arrival.
    • Fully vaccinated travelers will not have to apply for a Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP) or Air Travel Pass (ATP) to enter the country.
    • Individuals traveling from countries on the “Restricted Category” list will be subject to on-arrival COVID-19 testing and must undergo a seven-day SHN.
  • Singaporean and Malaysian authorities have agreed to allow fully vaccinated individuals to travel across land borders between the countries without having to quarantine or take COVID-19 tests beginning April 1.

Additional Information: There are currently no countries on the “Restricted Category” list. More information regarding the updated entry and health requirements is available here.
