As part of the country’s progressive relaxation of COVID-19 measures, Singapore will eliminate the majority of restrictions on air travel beginning March 29, 2022.
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong stated to CNBC on March 24, 2022 that the state aims to fully reopen its borders for international passengers beginning April 1 without the need to ask for entry clearances.
The new requirements will only apply to fully vaccinated travelers and children aged 12 and under who are not fully vaccinated. According to the revised framework, fully vaccinated overseas tourists who have not visited any of the countries mentioned in Singapore’s Restricted Category are allowed to enter the country without being quarantined.
Passengers will no longer be required to perform a COVID-19 virus antigen rapid test (ART) within 24 hours of their arrival in the country.
Singapore would also remove the obligation for airlines to run dedicated Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights, as well as travel quotas, which were previously enforced on daily arriving aircraft.
