Travelling to Singapore
Only fully vaccinated attendees (i.e. those who fulfill the public health requirements stated below) will be allowed to enter the Singapore EXPO, and proof of vaccination status from the TraceTogether App will be required to gain entry. Overseas visitors are required to download the TraceTogether App
before arriving in Singapore.
This checklist is for all travellers, including Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents, who enter Singapore from any country/region via air, land, or sea, and fulfil the public health requirements below.
PUBLIC HEALTH REQUIREMENTS
Travellers must have taken the minimum WHO-EUL vaccine dosage at least two weeks before arrival in Singapore and can show proof of vaccination: one dose of CanSinoBIO/Convidecia or Janssen/J&J, or at least 2 doses of AstraZeneca, Covaxin, Moderna/Spikevax, Covishield, Novavax/Covovax/Nuvaxovid, Pfizer/BioNTech/COMIRNATY, Sinovac or Sinopharm. Mixed doses and boosters using these WHO EUL vaccines, and vaccination with recovery are also acceptable.

Secure tickets for any flight to Singapore
From 1 April 2022, all travellers fully vaccinated with WHO EUL COVID-19 vaccines* enjoy quarantine-free travel in Singapore; pre-departure and on-arrival test is not required for these travellers.
Singapore has implemented a COVID-19 Vaccinated Travel Framework to facilitate the resumption of travel. This new travel framework replaces previous SafeTravel Lanes such as the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL), and applies to all travellers entering Singapore, including Singapore Citizens/Permanent Residents.
