Singapore Fully Vaccinated

Singapore Vaccinated Travellers don’t need to Quarantine For 14 Days?

The short answer is NO. Therefore, some Singapore Vaccinated Travellers will still need to quarantine as of now, ranging from 7 to 14 days.

On a recent news, Singapore could go without SHN quarantine from as early as September.

Here are some countries with potentials to have quarantine-free travels to Singapore for the Fully-vaccinated travellers:

  • Brunei Darussalam
  • Canada
  • China
  • Germany
  • Hong Kong
  • Taiwan

UPDATE: 1 August 2021
All travellers with a travel history to Australia in the past 21 days will be subjected to a 14-day stay-home notice at dedicated facilities, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) In a press release. This is due to a recent increase in cases reported by Australia. 
The new measure will take effect from Monday at 11.59pm. 
UPDATE: 20 August 2021
Germany and Brunei will be the first Quarantine-free travel starting from 8 September 2021.

“On September 7, 2021, provided that the domestic epidemiologic situation remains favourable, the Government intends to open Canada’s borders to any fully vaccinated travellers who have completed the full course of vaccination with a Government of Canada-accepted vaccine at least 14 days prior to entering Canada.”

However, Singapore is currently generally still close to outside world. Unless you have family, business, or urgent matters in Singapore, do not expect to get your travel approved to Singapore even you are fully vaccinated.

Most travellers will need to serve Stay Home Notice (SHN) of 7-14 days.
You can refer to the SHN hotel list here:

However, Singapore government is currently looking into more flexible guidelines for vaccinated travellers very soon. Do keep up to date on this website for more updates. 

Entry Requirements for Vaccinated Travellers

As of today, the requirements to enter Singapore still vary depending on where you came from, not based on Vacciniation Status.

If you are coming from these countries:

  • Brunei Darussalam
  • Mainland China
  • New Zealand

Furthermore, if you are one of these:

  • Singapore Citizens (SC)
  • Permanent Residents (PR)
  • Long-Term Pass holders

You would not need to apply for Air Travel Pass. Otherwise, you will only need to apply for Air Travel Pass (ATP).

These countries are considered low-risk to Singapore for free travel.

Travellers from countries not listed above, and not listed in category above, definitely will have a hard time entering Singapore. They are very serious in their border control.
