13 April 2023




With effect from 1 April 2023, all pre-departure and post-arrival quarantine and testing requirements for inbound travellers to Hong Kong have been lifted.  All inbound travellers must pass temperature checks upon arrival and those found with symptoms will be referred to the Department of Health for further handling. 


The Hong Kong Government recommends all inbound travellers to undergo daily RATs using self-arranged RAT kits from the day of arrival (i.e. Day 0) until Day 5 after arrival at Hong Kong. Travellers may voluntarily report their RAT results and health status via the Electronic COVID-19 Monitoring & Surveillance System (eCMSS).


All mandatory mask-wearing and social distancing measures were lifted with effect from 1 March 2023.  As mask-wearing is still an effective way to reduce the risk of virus transmission, people entering medical facilities or residential care homes for the elderly or residential care homes for persons with disabilities will still need to follow the mask-wearing requirement.  The local Government appealed to the public to wear a mask when having respiratory symptoms.  Persons with weakened immunity or chronic disease(s) should also wear a mask when they are in a poorly ventilated place.

From 13 February 2023, there are no longer any COVID-19 measures for travellers arriving in Singapore, regardless of vaccination status or traveller profile.  Travellers must ensure that they fulfil all other general entry requirements.

All travellers entering Singapore (including Singapore residents) must submit an electronic health declaration via the SG Arrival Card e-Service within 3 days before their arrival in Singapore, except:


- Those transiting/transferring through Singapore without seeking immigration clearance; and

- Residents travelling through the land checkpoints.


Transit travellers are defined as those travelling to another country via Singapore, without clearing Singapore arrival immigration.  Such transit travellers do not need proof of vaccination, COVID-19 tests, travel visas or entry approvals. If unsure, travellers connecting through Singapore should consult their airline on whether they need to go through immigration, or if they can remain in the transit area to connect to their next flight.  Travellers are advised to check with the appropriate authorities of your destination country/region on what requirements they impose on travellers transiting through Singapore. 


There are currently no restrictions imposed on departures from Singapore.  However, travellers must abide by the entry requirements imposed by the countries they are travelling to.
