All travellers will be subject to the prevailing border measures upon entry to Singapore, including payment for their stay at dedicated SHN facilities and tests, where applicable.  All Singapore Citizens (SCs), Permanent Residents (PRs), and Long-Term Pass Holders (LTPHs) will be able to tap on regular healthcare financing arrangements for their COVID-19 treatment should they have onset of symptoms within 14 days of their return to Singapore and require hospital admission for suspected COVID-19 infection – SCs and PRs may access Government subsidies, and MediShield Life (MSHL) / Integrated Shield Plan (IP) coverage; LTPHs may tap on their usual financing arrangements, such as private insurance.
 
As Singapore’s measures will evolve as the global situation changes, we encourage everyone to check the MOH website (https://www.moh.gov.sg/covid-19) for the latest updates.

Measures which apply to Inbound Travellers (updated 09 Feb 2021)


The Multi-Ministry Taskforce has been closely monitoring the global COVID-19 situation. We will tighten our border measures for travellers from Vietnam, given the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Vietnam. At the same time, with the improvement in the COVID-19 situation in New South Wales (NSW), Australia, we will adjust our border measures for travellers from NSW, Australia. In addition, to minimise the risk of potential incubating cases leaking into the community for travellers, we will tighten border measures for the Business Travel Pass scheme.
