We will update when we have more details.

Marina Bay Sands has introduced a slew of measures with the health and well-being of our guests, Team Members and community in mind.

Visitors who enter the IR must use the TraceTogether app or Token to enter the premises. 

The IR has also been certified as SG Clean, which is a hygiene and sanitation quality certification by the Singapore Government; and certified under the Bureau Veritas SafeGuard™ Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label for meeting international hygiene and safety standards within the hospitality industry.

All team members working on property are covered by our enhanced Rostered Routine Testing (RRT) regime, with testing frequency differentiated based on the vaccination status of individual team members and their job risk profiles. This means that guest-facing staff will undergo swab tests at a frequency ranging from every three days up to every seven days.

Marina Bay Sands is pleased to be certified as SG Clean by the Singapore Government in recognition of our commitment towards the highest levels of sanitisation and hygiene. The SG Clean Quality mark applies to the entire integrated resort and highlights our commitment to safeguard our communities’ well-being, by adhering to the Government’s sector specific sanitisation and hygiene checklists, covering areas such as management oversight, cleaning methodology, toilet cleanliness and general public hygiene.

Marina Bay Sands was awarded the highly lauded SafeGuard™ Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label by Bureau Veritas (BV), a nearly 200-year-old world leading provider in testing, inspection and certification.

The BV SafeGuard Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label is designed to support the operational restart activities in the hospitality and restaurant industries globally. It is awarded to a site following independent verification of compliance with a rigorous sanitary protocol by a qualified Bureau Veritas auditor. As a recipient of this Label, Marina Bay Sands has demonstrated that it has achieved set standards that keep hygiene and safety at the forefront, and mitigated the risk of virus spread across property.

Since 20 October, Marina Bay Sands has implemented the vaccination-differentiated safe management measures (VDS) for the integrated resort, excluding Sands Expo and Convention Centre, to facilitate movement across the property. VDS eligibility checks will be conducted at the Hotel and Mall – major entry points into the IR – as well as at Attractions, the Casino and F&B outlets.

Besides mandatory check-in via the TraceTogether app or Token, all guests are requested to follow government guidelines and advice relating to safe distancing, personal hygiene, wearing of masks, and staying home if they are unwell.

In light of venue capacity restrictions and safe distancing measures, entry requirements in certain facilities have been introduced to manage crowds. For instance, access to the Infinity Pool is managed through a queue system, which limits use of the pool to 1 hour 15 mins per day, per guest room. The system allows us to control access while ensuring all guests have the opportunity to experience the pool.

We also encourage guests to pre-purchase tickets to our attractions (ArtScience Museum, SkyPark Observation Deck, Digital Light Canvas and Sampan Rides) online before visiting Marina Bay Sands. 

Guests are required to secure a registration time slot to check-in via SMS, within 24 hours prior to arrival.

Access to the Infinity Pool and Fitness Club will also be staggered to reduce capacity through a queue management system. Hotel guests are required to make their pool session booking via SMS within 24 hours of your arrival date. Access to the pool is limited to a maximum of 1 hour 15 mins per room, per day, to ensure all guests have the opportunity to experience the pool.

Hotel guests are also required to register their interest to use the Fitness Club via the same queue management system, and be issued a queue number as they await their turn to access the facility. Guests can utilise the gym facilities up to a maximum of an hour per visit.

Marina Bay Sands is not a SHN Dedicated Facility assigned by the Singapore government to cater to travellers from high-risk countries. However, we are currently able to accommodate guests arriving via Safe Travel Lanes, who need to serve either a 7-day or *10-day SHN period. These travellers are required to remain in their designated rooms and will only be allowed to leave their rooms at the end of their SHN period after obtaining negative results on their mandatory PCR test and/or antigen rapid tests (based on their SHN period).

More information on the eligibility of travellers to enter Singapore via Safe Travel Lanes can be found via the ICA website.

*For travellers who are fully vaccinated and are eligible to serve their 10-day SHN at a suitable accommodation of their choice (e.g residential address, hotels, or serviced apartments).

If you currently have a booking with us and are affected by prevailing travel restrictions, we will allow full changes or cancellations without any penalties, to 2 days prior to arrival, as long as your arrival date is before 28 December 2021.

For arrival date after 28 December 2021, we will only allow full changes to a reservation. Changes to a future date will also be subject to room availability and rate differences.

This policy also applies for bookings made via online travel agents or other third-party travel platforms. However, if your booking is made through a third-party site or party, please contact them directly as additional policies may apply.

If you have specific concerns regarding your booking, please email room.reservations@marinabaysands.com for us to get back to you.

Health advisories and latest information on the local disease situation are available on the Singapore Ministry of Health website at https://www.moh.gov.sg/covid-19. For queries, please call the MOH general enquiry hotline at 1800 333 9999.

Yes, we are accepting guests on the Reciprocal Green Lane, Vaccinated Travel Lane, or who have an Air Travel Pass.

For guests on Reciprocal Green Lane and Air Travel Pass

Specific rooms will be designated upon arrival, which undergo the same safety and hygiene protocols as the rest of the Hotel.

Guests will check in at a segregated location and then be directed to their rooms via a designated lift lobby. They are to remain isolated in their assigned rooms until their test results return negative. Should a guest decide to continue staying with us after receiving a negative test result, he/she will be transferred to a new hotel room.

Kindly note that travellers arriving via the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) will not be allowed to use Hotel facilities such as the pool, spa and/or gym, nor enter the casino, even if they have a negative Covid-19 test result. These travellers will also need to adhere to the 14-day controlled itinerary for the duration of their stay.

For guests on Vaccinated Travel Lane

Guests will check in at a segregated location and then be directed to their rooms via a designated lift lobby. They are to remain isolated in their rooms until their test results return negative. Guests who hold a Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP) are not required to transfer to a new hotel room if they wish to continue to stay with us.

No. Reciprocal Green Lane, Vaccinated Travel Lane, and Air Travel Pass travellers are not required to serve SHN. However, the traveller must remain isolated in his/her assigned room during the isolation period until the test result is released. This isolation period can take up to 24 hours.

Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures

Why is Marina Bay Sands Hotel implementing the Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS) across the property when it is not mandatory for some venues (e.g The Hotel, Theatre)?

Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort encompassing dining, leisure and entertainment all under one roof. Almost all attractions and venues are inter-linked and share common spaces.

After careful consideration, we decided to implement the VDS approach for most of the property (excluding Sands Expo) in order to facilitate movement, security checks, and to ensure safety for all visitors.

As The Shoppes and Hotel are key entrances for the IR, VDS eligibility checks will be activated at these major entryways, with effect from 20 October.

Sands Expo is a non-VDS zone. However events will continue to follow the SMM guidelines on vaccination and PET requirements based on the size of the event. Based on prevailing regulations, up to 1,000 persons per event may be allowed with Pre-event Testing (PET), and up to 50 persons may be allowed without PET.

Delegates can enter Sands Expo through its dedicated entrance without being subjected to *VDS eligibility rules. However, from October 20, MICE delegates who self-park at The Shoppes will undergo VDS checks at the point of entry into the mall.

If you are unvaccinated but wish to stay at our Hotel, you will need a valid negative Pre-event Test (PET) result for the duration of your visit. Based on MOH guidelines, the validity of your Pre-event Test (PET) Result Notice is 24 hours from the time you were registered in-person at the testing premises.

For unvaccinated hotel guests staying more than one night, a daily PET taken at a test provider approved by the Ministry of Health approved Covid-19 test provider is required.

Marina Bay Sands is facilitating arrangements for Hotel guests to take PET on property if they are staying with us and their PET is expiring. These guests are able to take their PET at Level 1, Sands Expo & Convention Centre, at their own costs.

Pre-Event Testing

Does Marina Bay Sands offer PET testing on property?

Yes, we do. Marina Bay Sands is operating three on-site Pre-Event Testing (PET) facilities for hotel guests and visitors of our integrated resort. Guests who require PET to enter our property or to continue their stay can walk in for PET tests without prior appointment.

  1. Level 1, Sands Expo & Convention Centre, from 0700 to 2300 hours daily.
  2. Sands Expo & Convention Centre Porte Cochere, from 0700 to 2300 hours daily.
    *This is a drive-through PET service. 
  3. B1, The Shoppes (next to #B1-93 Panerai), from 1200 to 2200 hours daily.
    *This facility is only accessible to guests who are already within the premises, who wish to revalidate their PET to continue their stay.

Each PET costs $40 and guests are required to make payment on-site via PayNow. Guests will be informed of their test results within 30 minutes via SMS on their mobile phones by the Ministry of Health (MOH).

Guests who are awaiting their results at the indoor PET facility will not be allowed to venture into The Shoppes from 20 October, as the mall will become a VDS zone. Checks will be activated at L1 Sweetspot to verify the vaccination status / PET status of visitors before they enter the mall.

We have partnered with MOH-approved Covid-19 test provider Doctor Anywhere on this service.

The PET facility will be administering Antigen Rapid Test (ART) tests only. According to the Ministry of Health (MOH), ART is recommended for Pre-Event Testing as it has a shorter turnaround time. With ART, visitors may be able to receive their results within half an hour, compared to up to 48 hours for a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test.

  • Fully vaccinated (i.e. an individual is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after he or she has received the full regimen of any World Health Organization’s Emergency Use Listing (WHO EUL) vaccine)
  • Recovered from COVID-19 (i.e. with a valid PET exemption notice/Discharge Memo stating the PET exemption period, for the duration of his/her visit);
  • Children 12 years and below are exempted from PET.
     

The validity of your PET result notice is 24 hours from the time you were registered in-person at the testing premises. Guests will only be allowed entry into the VDS zones if they present a negative test result for the duration of the service/activity from an MOH-approved COVID-19 test provider in the past 24 hours. The minimum remaining validity on the PET result must be 2 hours for entry into the Casino, and 30 minutes for the Hotel and The Shoppes.

No. Per the prevailing Government guidelines, self-administered Antigen Rapid Tests will not be recognised. Visitors must take their Pre-Event Test (ART or PCR) at an MOH- approved Covid-19 test provider. If you wish to get tested outside of Marina Bay Sands, you may refer to Go.gov.sg/swabproviders for the list of approved test providers.
