Singapore has implemented new Stay-Home Notice (SHN) requirements for those entering the country on or after July 19 with recent travel history in Hong Kong, Victoria, Australia or Japan.

Key Points:

  • Those with recent travel history, including transit, in these regions within the last 14 days will be required to serve their SHN at SHN Dedicated Facilities (SDF) instead of their own place of residence.
  • They must also complete a COVID-19 test before they end their SHN.

Additional information: Those who are not Singapore citizens or permanent residents will be required to pay for their SDF stay. Singapore citizens or permanent residents who left Singapore on or after March 27 in spite of the travel advisory will also bear the cost of their SDF stay.

Analysis & Comments: The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
