From October 19th, Singapore will have a vaccinated travel lane (VTL) for visitors from the United Kingdom.
British travellers who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be permitted to enter Singapore with a vaccinated travel pass (VTP) as a result of the ruling.
The application period for the pass will begin today.
South Korea, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United States are now included in the scheme, which was previously only open to Germany and Brunei.
The travel pass will allow travellers to enter Singapore without having to undergo the standard ten-day quarantine period.
The pass must be requested between seven and thirty calendar days prior to the desired date of entrance into Singapore, and applications can be made through the SafeTravel website.
Unvaccinated children aged 12 and under will be able to enter Singapore from countries that are covered under the scheme beginning October 19th, if accompanied by an adult on the scheme.
Pre-departure and on-arrival polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests will be required of children, with children under the age of two being excluded.
Carrie Kwik, executive director of the Singapore Tourism Board’s Europe division, commented: “We are delighted to welcome back visitors from the UK, a key European source market for inbound tourism to Singapore.
“Following months of resilience, preparation, and innovation, we are ready for visitors to experience a reimagined Singapore with new hotels, sightseeing tours and attractions which we hope will inspire travel desire in repeat and first-time visitors to Singapore.”
Singapore Airlines responded to the news by stating that it would fly daily from London to the destination.
SQ317 departs London Heathrow at 11:25 a.m. local time and arrives in Singapore at 07:30 the following day.
The flight is operated by a Boeing 777-300ER and provides passengers with a choice of four cabin classes: economy, premium economy, business, and first-class.
