Singapore is piloting a new business travel pass for senior executives in Singapore with regional or international responsibilities who need to travel overseas regularly for official and business purposes.

Key Points:

  • Travelers with this pass, which is not country-specific, will be required to abide by a strictly controlled itinerary when they travel abroad for work.
  • Upon their return, travelers will be given the option of doing a COVID-19 test in lieu of a Stay-Home Notice (SHN) and will be required to self-isolate until the test results are released. The number of passes will be strictly limited in the initial phase to ensure that public health outcomes of this pilot can be monitored.

Analysis & Comments: The business travel pass pilot for senior executives in Singapore will allow a limited number of them to travel internationally for business and official purposes. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
