Starting from 1 April 2022, Singapore welcome all fully vaccinated visitors (fully vaccinated people age 13 and above and non-fully vaccinated children age 12 and below), with no entry approvals, pre-departure tests, on-arrival tests and quarantine required.
COVID-19 Travel Guidelines
While it is really fuss-free to visit Singapore now, there is a pre-departure checklist for fully-vaccinated visitors that is easy to follow:
Upload your vaccination certificate to the Vaccination Check Portal
Book your flight to Singapore
Download the TraceTogether app and register your profile
3 days before your flight departure: Submit your SG Arrival Card and e-health declaration on the official Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website.
If you’re a non-fully vaccinated visitor, you’re generally not allowed to enter Singapore unless you have a valid entry approval (e.g. for compassionate reasons). Get the official details here.
Wearing of Face Masks
You are only required to wear a mask for indoor settings and it is optional (but encouraged) for outdoors.
There is no group size limit for social gatherings nor household visits, safe distancing is not required as well.
As the requirements might adjust according to the COVID-19 situation in Singapore, you can get the most updated official info at Ministry of Health Singapore.
