Singapore has relaxed entry restrictions to encourage travellers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vaccinated travellers no longer need to take a pre-departure PCR test, and limits on gathering sizes and the need for social distancing have been removed.

“With these changes, we can now have a well-deserved breather, after two very difficult years of fighting the virus,” says Lawrence Wong, Finance Minister and Co-Chair of the Government’s COVID-19 taskforce. “But let’s always remember: we are getting closer to the finish line, but the race is not over and the pandemic is certainly not over.”

For unvaccinated people, mandatory wearing of face masks will continue in indoor public spaces and public transport.

According to a statement by the Ministry of Health, daily infection numbers have continued to fall and have stabilised. However, citizens and visitors to Singapore need to stay alert and ready to respond if new variants surface or if the public health situation takes a turn for the worse.
