Singapore eases Covid-19 regulations for travellers

Plans revealed to introduce the Vaccinated Travel Framework (VTF) for all travellers

Travel to Singapore is due to become more accessible as regulations for entry are eased from 1 April.

Under the new rules, all countries will be classified either under the General Travel or Restricted Category and border measures will be based on individual travellers’ vaccination status.

Travellers arriving in Singapore will no longer be required to undergo a rapid antigen test within 24 hours of arrival but they must still carry out either a pre-departure PCR test two days before departure or show a professionally administered rapid antigen test or proof of recovery.


Short-term visitors will no longer need to apply for a travel pass and all vaccination certificates, regardless of country of issuance and whether digitally verifiable or not, will be accepted as proof of vaccination. Children aged 12 years and below are exempt from the vaccination requirement.

All travellers must submit their Singapore Arrival Card three days before entering Singapore.
