Travellers making short-term visits to Singapore from the countries/regions listed below may enter. Entry approvals are required.

People from India travelling to Singapore, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Kuwait will be able to visit both these as the travel restrictions have been eased by both the countries. According to Singapore Airlines (SIA), fully vaccinated passengers travelling to Singapore from tomorrow on VTL flights from Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai will have their travel history requirement reduced from 14 to 7 days. 


SIA said in a statement, "From 22 February 2022 (Singapore time), fully vaccinated passengers travelling to Singapore on VTL flights from Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai can adhere to the new relaxations. Travel history requirement will be reduced from 14 to 7 days. If the traveller has been in Singapore within those last 7 days, his/her stay in Singapore can be counted towards fulfilling this 7-day travel history requirement." 


Also, "From February 22, VTL travellers need not take an on-arrival Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test at Changi Airport. Instead, they will be required to take a supervised self-swab Antigen Rapid Test (ART) at any test center located across Singapore within 24 hours of arrival," it said. A testing notice with a weblink to book tests will be issued to travellers upon their entry into Singapore. If the above ART is negative, no further ART/PCR tests are required throughout one's stay in Singapore. The new changes to Singapore's VTL entry and testing requirements follow the government's announcement last month exempting VTL travellers from all testing requirements if they had recently recovered from COVID-19 (within 7 to 90 days of their last infection before departure to Singapore) and can provide appropriate documentary proof of their recovery.
