Starting from February 13, travellers will no longer need to show proof of vaccination upon arrival in Singapore. Those not fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will also not be required to show proof of a negative pre-departure test.
This follows the city-state’s announcement on lifting all remaining border measures that were put in place during the pandemic.
In addition, the Ministry of Health (MOH) stated on February 9 that short-term visitors who are not fully vaccinated will no longer need to buy travel insurance that covers Covid-19 medical treatment here.
However, MOH said that these restrictions may be reactivated if new severe variants appear, or if there are signs of strain in Singapore’s healthcare capacity.
Currently, travellers may enter Singapore without testing or quarantine, with those aged 13 and above showing proof of having received the minimum dosage of Covid-19 vaccines at least two weeks before arrival in the country. Those who do not meet these requirements will have to undergo pre-departure testing before they can enter Singapore.
The authorities will continue to screen travellers for other infectious diseases of concern, such as yellow fever, Middle East respiratory syndrome and Ebola.
All travellers entering Singapore via air or sea, and short-term visitors entering via land checkpoints, will be required to submit a health declaration using the SG Arrival Card platform, which will remain a permanent feature.
