Singapore has made the following changes to the VTF for non-vaccinated travellers entering the country, starting from 28 August 2022, 2359 hours:
- All non-fully vaccinated travellers will no longer be required to undergo a 7-day SHN upon arrival, nor be subject to an exit-SHN Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test. However, they will continue to be required to test negative on a Pre-Departure Test within 2 days before departing for Singapore. Non-fully vaccinated Short-Term Visitors (STVs) will also continue to be required to purchase COVID-19 travel insurance to cover the duration of their stay in Singapore.
- The current requirement for non-fully vaccinated Long-Term Pass Holders (LTPHs) and STVs aged 13 to apply for entry approval will be lifted. As LTPHs are expected to stay in Singapore for a longer period of time, they will continue to be required to fulfil vaccination requirements after their arrival in Singapore.
Travellers who test positive for COVID-19 should defer their travel plans and not board commercial flights, as they may infect fellow passengers and crew while infectious. They should only resume their travel when they test negative, and at least 72 hours from the time they first test positive.
