Extension of Precautionary Measures to Minimise Risk of Community Spread in Singapore
31 January 2020
From 1 February 2020, 2359 hours, all new visitors with recent travel history to mainland China within the last 14 days will not be allowed entry into Singapore, or to transit through Singapore.
The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) will suspend the issuance of all forms of new visas to those with PRC passports, and suspend Singapore’s status as a visa free transit facility for those with PRC passports. Previously issued short-term and multiple-visit visas for those with PRC passports will also be suspended. During this period of suspension, they will not be allowed entry into Singapore.
With immediate effect, the following returning groups will be issued an advisory for them to be placed on a 14-day leave of absence from the day of their return from China:
a. Residents (Singaporean Citizens/ PRs) with recent travel history to mainland China within the last 14 days; and
b. Long-term pass holders (including Work Passes and Permits, Student Pass, Dependent Pass and Long-term Visit Pass) with recent travel history to mainland China within the last 14 days.
