Updates relating to COVID-19 in Singapore and the UK



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.




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.

From 14 July 2021, individuals who have received COVID-19 vaccination overseas with COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the Health Sciences Authority under the Pandemic Special Access Route (PSAR) or listed on the World Health Organization’s Emergency Use Listing (WHO EUL) can have their vaccination records updated in the National Immunization Registry when they return to Singapore.


To do so, they should have documentation proof of their overseas vaccination and a positive serology test result in Singapore. The serology test can be done at selected private healthcare providers.
