Singapore Eases Testing Procedure For VTL Travelers

Singapore will simplify the testing regime for both air and land Vaccinated Travel Lane from Jan 24, 2022, with no more supervised Antigen Rapid Test (ART) on Days 3 and 7 from the date of arrival.

The republic’s Multi-Ministry Taskforce on COVID-19 also noted that travellers need not submit their ART results but have to test negative before going out. In other words, travelers will undergo unsupervised self-administered ART from Days 2 to 7 of their arrival if they need to leave their place of residence or accommodation,” said MTF’s co-chair Gan Kim Yong.

MTF also announced that travelers arriving, who were fully vaccinated and recovered recently from COVID-19 – within 90 days – will be exempted from all testing and SHN requirements provided they were able to show appropriate documentary proof. On Dec 31, 2021, Singapore had announced a four-week extension to the enhanced 7-day testing regime for travelers arriving via VTLs in order to facilitate the detection of imported Omicron cases and slow transmission into the community.

Singapore noticed imported cases now form a shrinking proportion of its overall cases, thus the earlier measures were deemed less relevant. For now it will continue to maintain a 50 percent limit on VTL flight and bus tickets for entry into Singapore.
