Singapore is to allow fully vaccinated travelers to enter the country – from 1 April – with easy entry requirements.

This means that in a matter of days (from 1 April) fully vaccinated travelers – from all countries – will be able to enter Singapore without the need to undergo quarantine, or on-arrival Covid testing.

However, fully vaccinated travelers wanting to enter Singapore with these much simpler entry requirements can only do so if they have not visited – in the last seven days – any country or region that is on the MOH’s Restricted Category list.

At this present time, however, there are no countries on this list.

So What Are The Entry Requirements For Fully Vaccinated Travelers Entering Singapore From 1 April?

Having reported just two weeks ago that the country was planning to eliminate its Vaccinated Travel Lane scheme – and reopen to all countries – the plans have now been confirmed.

In a week’s time – beginning 1 April – individuals that have received their full vaccination against Covid-19 will be able to enter Singapore under the nation’s new Vaccinated Travel Framework

Basically, fully vaccinated travelers can enter by:

Gardens by the Bay, Singapore
  • showing proof of full vaccination – see below for more details on this
  • presenting a negative Covid-19 PCR or Antigen-Rapid test result – with the test needing to be undertaken no more than 48 hour prior to arrival
  • obtaining Covid-19 travel insurance – which must cover Covid-19 medical expenses and have a minimum coverage of $30,000 Singaporean dollars
  • completing a healthcare declaration form.

How Do You Qualify As Being Fully Vaccinated Against Covid-19?

In order to be considered fully vaccinated, visitors must have received their full dose of one of the below World Health Organization’s (WHO) Emergency Use Listing Procedure (EUL) vaccines:

  • Pfizer/BioNTech; Moderna; AstraZeneca; Serum Institute of India; Janssen; Sinopharm; Sinovac; Covaxin; Novavax
Covid-19 vaccine

To qualify as being fully vaccinated against Covid-19, travelers must have received two doses of one of the above approved vaccines – except for individuals that were administered the one-shot Janssen vaccine.

Individuals aged 12 – and under – are exempt from having to adhere to the nation’s vaccination requirements for travelers.

So, How Much Easier Will It Be For Fully Vaccinated Travelers To Enter Singapore From 1 April?

There is no doubt that Singapore’s new simplified entry requirements will be welcomed by those wanting to explore all that this fascinating Southeast Asian nation has to offer.

Especially with the country’s previous entry rules requiring most international visitors to undergo quarantine – even if they were fully vaccinated.

All individuals entering Singapore were also previously required to undertake an expensive on-arrival Covid-19 PCR test – which was an additional cost for travelers.

They were then required to stay in their hotel until they received notification of a negative result from their on-arrival test – at which point they were only then allowed to begin exploring the country.

And even with the nation having launched their Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) scheme – which was only applicable to nationals of certain countries – entering Singapore was still nowhere near as simple as it is soon to be – from 1 April.

Especially with the fact that travelers will soon no longer need to apply for a Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP) or Air Travel Pass (ATP) before their arrival into the country.

Travelers should, however, always check their visa requirements for Singapore based on their nationality.

Singapore’s Outdoor Mask Mandate Will Also Be Lifted

Along with the announcement that entry into the country will now be much easier for fully vaccinated travelers, the Singaporean authorities are also lifting the requirement for people to wear masks outdoors from 29 March.

Groups of up to 10 people will also be allowed to meet together, which is double the number of people (5) previously permitted to meet together.

Music concerts and gigs will also be allowed to resume from 29 March – which were previously banned due to the nation’s ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.
