Singapore (VNA) – Travellers who have visited six countries that Singapore was previously closed off to will be allowed to enter the city-state from October 27 as it continues to adjust border measures in response to the global COVID-19 situation.
All travellers with a 14-day travel history to Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka will be allowed to enter or transit through Singapore, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) on October 23.
The MOH also said in a release that travellers from these countries will be subject to the tightest of border measures, which involve a 10-day, stay-home notice (SHN) period at a dedicated facility.
The ministry added that it will be easing measures for travellers from some countries, including Malaysia and Indonesia.
The MOH said travellers from Malaysia and Indonesia, along with those from Cambodia, Egypt, Hungary, Israel, Malaysia, Qatar, Seychelles, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Vietnam, will be placed under Category III measures.
All travellers from Category II, III and IV nations will also no longer need to undergo an on-arrival polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test , and will undergo only an end-of-SHN exit PCR test./.
