Singapore has expanded isolation procedures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Key points:

  • Singapore nationals, permanent residents and long-term pass holders returning to Singapore from all countries must now enter a 14-day period of isolation at dedicated Stay-Home Notice facilities.
  • If the number of returnees is greater than expected, Stay-Home Notice facilities may be prioritized based on the risk evaluation of returnees from certain countries or regions.
  • Returnees who ignored travel advisories and left the country on or after March 27, will have to pay for their own 14-day isolation at dedicated Stay-Home Notice facilities.

Background: The most recent Stay-Home Notice expansion builds upon prior ones that mandated returnees from ASEAN countries, France, India, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States enter the same type of self-isolation.
