The requirement for international arrivals to take a COVID test within 24 hours of arriving in Singapore will be scrapped from 1 April.

But passengers must still be double jabbed in order to enter the country and will be required to present a negative test taken 24 before departing for Singapore.

Under a series of changes announced yesterday, authorities in Singapore said short term arrivals will no longer need to apply for a Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP).

The need to fly to Singapore on dedicated flights under the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) system has also been abolished while the limit on the number of daily arrivals will be lifted.

Michael Rodriguez, Area Director for Northern and Southwestern Europe at Singapore Tourism Board, said: “The latest easing of travel restrictions is a really positive step towards Singapore’s tourism recovery.

“As the entry process into Singapore becomes even more seamless, we look forward to welcoming more visitors from the UK to safely enjoy reimagined experiences; be it our world class foodie scene, the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix or sharing in the excitement of Gardens by the Bay’s 10th anniversary this year.”

The Government said it will continue to monitor the COVID situation and would reimpose restrictions if needed.
