Singapore’s government stated on October 9, 2021, that the city-state will have an open travel corridor with eight nations as it continues to re-establish its status as an international travel center in the midst of COVID-19.

The Singaporean government will open a Vaccinated Travel Lane between Singapore and eight Category 2 nations beginning October 19, 2021: Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

This means that fully-vaccinated tourists from these countries can cross into each other’s country for general travel after getting a short-term and long-term pass. Passes will be available for purchase beginning October 12, 2021.

Singapore believes these eight countries to be nations that are successfully “living with COVID.”

On September 8, 2021, Singapore began a Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) initiative with Brunei and Germany, allowing fully vaccinated citizens from the two nations to enter.

Singapore says that since the program’s inception and the issuance of almost 2,000 Vaccinated Travel Passes, there have only been two imported instances of COVID-19, both of which were tested on arrival and isolated immediately.

Singapore also intends to launch a VTL with South Korea on November 15, 2021, with applications for short-term and long-term passes beginning on November 8, 2021.

The formal statement from the government, as well as the full specifications and restrictions of the Vaccinated Travel Lane initiative, may be found here.
