Travelling 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.

Travellers are strongly advised to follow all the steps in ICA’s Checklist for Fully Vaccinated Travellers to ensure that their journey to Singapore is smooth and that they will be accorded the measures for vaccinated travellers.
*To be considered fully vaccinated, travellers must have taken at least one dose of Janssen/J&J, or at least 2 doses of AstraZeneca, Covaxin, Moderna/Spikevax, Covishield, Novavax, Pfizer/BioNTech/COMIRNATY, Sinovac or Sinopharm. Mixtures and boosters of these WHO EUL vaccines, and recovery from COVID-19 with vaccination, are also acceptable. For full definition of acceptable vaccinations and dose intervals for entry to Singapore, refer to this page.
