Singapore has relaxed its entry requirements as pandemic abates together with other nations. Starting tomorrow, the Lion City of Asia is dropping the requirement for vaccinated travelers to take a pre-arrival test, at the same removing the limits on group sizes and safe distancing.
The withdrawal of requirements is in line with the continuous drop and stabilization of daily infection rates which allows the government to decide with further relaxing of community and travel measures.
For the first time since the onset of the pandemic, Singapore’s alert has been lowered. The Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (Dorscon) level, which indicates the current disease situation, will also be moved from orange to yellow from Tuesday.
Nevertheless, many of the restrictions will remain in place for non-vaccinated individuals. Face masks are still required to be worn in indoor public settings and on public transport.
With international airport serving as a global hub, it is important to note that travel, tourism and aviation are major contributors to the Singaporean economy.
