Link has been copied

 6 Apr 2022  

 

With the newly introduced Vaccinated Travel Framework (VTF), fully-vaccinated travellers, partially-vaccinated travellers, and unvaccinated children from any country can now fly to Singapore without undergoing quarantine.

In this Singapore safe travel guide, you'll find information on the Vaccinated Travel Framework with our recommendations for where to visit in Singapore and best attractions/experiences to see and do. For a more detailed write up on VTF, read on at our Singapore Travel Restriction Guide.

 

 

Vaccinated Travel Framework (VTF)

In effect from 1 April 2022, the VTF makes travelling to Singapore a smooth and hassle-free affair, with relaxed requirements.

Here's a quick breakdown of the travel restrictions, quarantine rules, and entry approvals under VTF:

  • Travellers are required to have 2 doses of approved vaccines in order to be eligible to fly; they will need to acquire a visa if they are travelling from any of these 36 countries
  • Travellers can fly on any airline, from any country, via any transit airport
  • On-arrival tests and quarantine is no longer required, though travellers will still need to fill out their SG Arrival Cards
  • Short-term visitors must have COVID-19 travel insurance (minimum coverage of SGD $30,000)

 

COVID Travel

 

Vaccinated travellers

Adults who have received two doses of any WHO-EUL vaccine are considered to be ‘vaccinated travellers’ and are eligible to enter the country. Booster shots are not mandatory. Children aged 12 and below are considered to be 'vaccinated travellers' as well, and are eligible to fly.

Both physical documentation and digital vaccination certificates (e.g. QR codes) are accepted as proof of vaccination (more details here). 

 

Arrival in Singapore

 

Partly-vaccinated/unvaccinated travellers

Unvaccinated adults are not allowed to visit Singapore at the moment. Travellers who are partially-vaccinated (i.e. received one dose) will need to adhere to additional requirements such as obtaining an entry approval, serving a stay-at-home notice, and more.
