The Ministry of Health has announced that travelers returning from ASEAN countries, as well as France, India and Switzerland, must complete their 14-day SHN quarantine in a hotel, rather than at home.

Key Points:

  • All Singaporean citizens, permanent residents and long-term pass holders returning from ASEAN countries, as well as France, India, and Switzerland, are required to complete their 14-day quarantine at a hotel. Affected travelers will be sent directly from the airport to a designated hotel.
  • The same policy remains in place for Singaporean citizens, permanent residents and long-term pass holders returning from the United Kingdom and the United States.

Background: The new SHN policy follows the original SHN directive issued last month for travelers returning from ASEAN and other countries.
