Singapore eases travel restrictions related to COVID-19

Singapore is easing its COVID-19 restrictions by announcing that there will be no more testing for vaccinated travellers. But, even though the country has lifted travel restrictions, here are some important things to keep in mind.

From July 1, 2022, all long-term pass holders between the ages of 13 and 17 traveling to Singapore must be fully vaccinated. Pre-departure COVID-19 testing will no longer be required for all vaccinated travelers and non-fully vaccinated children aged 12 and under.

However, for travelers aged 13 and over and not fully vaccinated, the rules remain unchanged. For unvaccinated travellers, pre-departure testing within 48 hours of departure is mandatory, and a seven-day home quarantine on arrival, followed by a PCR test at the end of the quarantine period.

Plan a trip to Singapore as the country eases COVID-19 travel restrictions

The move led to a sudden surge in internet searches for places to visit in the country and other parts of Southeast Asia and the Pacific. With neighboring ASEAN countries reopening their borders to travellers, the island destination has become one of the most sought-after countries to visit. It is estimated that the number of visitors on short-term holidays is expected to increase thereafter.

Now that you can start planning a trip to Singapore, here are some places and activities you can do safely and without too much close physical contact. Gardens by the Bay, Jurong Bird Park, ArtScience Museum Singapore, Singapore Cable Car rides, Singapore Flyer, SEA Aquarium, are some of the things you can plan while visiting Singapore.
