Singapore has restricted entry and transit of all short-term visitors who are not residents of Singapore, Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents, or Long-Term Pass Holders (including holders of Work Pass, Student’s Pass, Dependant’s Pass, and Long-Term Visit Pass). Travelers who have been in the UK or South Africa for any period in the previous 14 days before travel, including for transit, will not be able to enter Singapore. Singapore citizens and residents are still able to enter Singapore. Long-Term Visit Pass and Long-Term Visit Pass In-Principle Approval holders issued by ICA also need an Approved Letter for Entry (ALE) from ICA. Student’s Pass holders and Student’s Pass In-Principle Approval holders also need an ALE from the Ministry of Education (MOE). New and existing work pass holders are only allowed to enter Singapore with the Ministry of Manpower’s (MOM) prior approval. They are required to show the MOM’s approval letter to airline staff upon check-in and before boarding, as well as to ICA officers at the immigration checkpoint upon their arrival in Singapore. Short-term visitors with an ALE from ICA, Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI), Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) or MOH may still enter the country. However, they may still be subject to health screening upon arrival. Having an ALE does not guarantee a Visit Pass to enter Singapore. Prospective short-term visitors seeking entry to Singapore must apply in advance for a ‘SafeTravel Pass’ at https://safetravel.ica.gov.sg/. Spouses or children of Singapore residents or citizens who need to visit Singapore due to extenuating circumstances may apply for entry via the Ministry of Health.Entry requirements
All travelers entering Singapore, including Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents, and Long-Term Pass (LTP) holders must submit a health declaration via the SG Arrival Card (SGAC) e-Service, at https://eservices.ica.gov.sg/sgarrivalcard, or the mobile app. Airlines are requested to inform passengers at check-in and before boarding, as well as in-flight, to submit their health declaration via the SGAC e-Service prior to their arrival in Singapore. The paper-based embarkation/disembarkation card has been discontinued and is no longer distributed by airlines operating into Singapore.Quarantine requirements
Travelers entering Singapore will be tested for COVID-19 and must also self-isolate for 14 days at a dedicated Stay-Home-Notice (SHN) facility at a cost of $2000; travelers are responsible for covering all of these costs. During the quarantine, travelers will not be allowed to leave their room, and smoking may not be allowed in the facilities. From August 11, everyone aged over 12 who is in home quarantine will be required by law to wear an electronic tag for the duration of their quarantine period. The 14-day period cannot be reduced, even if travelers wish to leave Singapore. Singapore citizens and residents who have been in the UK or South Africa are required to undertake 14 days quarantine at a government facility on arrival, followed by 7 days quarantine at their place of residence. Travelers will be required to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival and at the end of their quarantine period. Travelers with an Air Travel Pass approval entering Singapore and who have remained in either Brunei or New Zealand in the last consecutive 14 days prior to their entry are not required to serve a Stay-Home Notice(SHN) but will still be subject to COVID-19 test upon arrival. If the test is negative, they can continue their activities in Singapore. The SHN duration will be shortened from 14 days to 7 days for travelers with an Air Travel Pass approval entering Singapore who have spent the previous 14 consecutive days in Australia (excluding Victoria), Mainland China, Macau, South Korea, Taiwan or Vietnam and will be allowed to serve their SHN at their place of residence, and undergo a COVID-19 test at the end of their SHN.Transiting rules
