Update: Singapore Travel Requirements

There has been further relaxation of the VTL requirements, making it easier to travel from Europe to Singapore. Highlighted below are some of the key VTL revisions for travellers entering Singapore from 21 Feb 2022, 2359h (SGT):


1. Assessed travel history will be reduced from 14 days to 7 days.

2. On-arrival Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test at the airport will be replaced with a supervised self-administered Antigen Rapid Test (ART) at a Quick Test Centre (QTC) or Combined Test Centre (CTC), to be completed within 24 hours of arrival in Singapore.

3. Unsupervised self-administered ARTs will no longer be required on Days 2 to 7 of arrival in Singapore.


In essence, fully vaccinated travellers from the UK may enter Singapore via VTL flights without quarantine and would just need to undergo a pre-departure PCR or ART test within two days before departing for Singapore, and when in Singapore they would only need to take a supervised self-administered ART (S$15) within 24 hours of arrival. I also include in attachment more information and an infographic for your ease of reference.
