The Ministry of Health has announced it is extending the Stay-Home Notice period to 21 days for travelers from higher-risk countries.

Key Points:

  • Under changes that will take effect May 8:
    • All travelers arriving from high-risk countries (i.e., all countries and territories except Australia, Brunei, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, New Zealand and Taiwan) will be subject to a 21-day quarantine at dedicated SHN facilities.
    • Travelers who are currently serving the 14-day SHN and have yet to complete it by May 8 will be required to serve the additional seven days.
    • Individuals subject to the 21-day SHN will take a PCR test upon arrival in Singapore, on day 14 of quarantine and before the end of the 21-day quarantine.
  • Effective May 8, the period to assess border measures for recent travel history will be increased from 14 days to 21 days.

Additional Information: Travelers from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, and the United Kingdom required to serve their 21-day SHN will have to do so at a dedicated facility. Those who have begun but not yet completed their SHN, however, will continue to serve the remainder of their SHN at their current location.
