31st Mar 2022

       We had earlier announced that Singapore will be launching the Vaccinated Travel Framework from 31 March 2022, 2359 hours where all fully vaccinated travellers can enter Singapore under the Framework.

 

Eligibility under Vaccinated Travel Framework

 

2.     The following groups will be eligible under the Vaccinated Travel Framework:

 

a) Travellers aged 12 years and below (regardless of vaccination status);

 

b) Travellers who have received the full regimen of World Health Organization Emergency Use Listing (WHO EUL) vaccines at least 14 days before arrival in Singapore and have met the minimum dose interval period. This is because the WHO EUL vaccination guidelines are the most widely accepted definition for full vaccination around the world, and it is appropriate for Singapore’s entry requirements to align to this definition. It will facilitate Singaporeans travelling in and out of Singapore and foreigners visiting Singapore.  

 

3.     The above travellers are subject to a pre-departure test within two days before departure for Singapore if arriving via air or sea channels.  They are not subject to on-arrival tests or Stay-Home Notice.

 

4.     Amongst these travellers, those who were not vaccinated in Singapore and do not have their records reflected in Singapore’s National Immunisation Registry (NIR), their vaccination status in their TraceTogether app will be reflected as fully vaccinated for 30 days, for purposes of entering premises subject to Vaccination-Differentiated Safe Management Measures (VDS)1.  If their stay in Singapore exceeds 30 days, they will need to have their vaccination records ingested into the NIR and may be required to receive additional doses to continue to meet Singapore’s requirements for vaccination.  Details on Singapore’s vaccination requirements can be found on https://go.gov.sg/vdsmminfo.

 

5.     For clarity, the rules described in Paragraph 4 do not apply to travellers aged 12 years and below, as all children aged 12 years and below are allowed to enter settings where VDS is implemented regardless of their vaccination status.

 

Vaccinations and Boosters for Travellers

 

6.     Currently, short-term travellers are not eligible to receive doses under Singapore’s National Vaccination Programme.  From mid-April, we will enable such travellers to pay to receive COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters. 

 

7.     We will provide more details at a later date, including on pricing and the list of participating healthcare providers.

 

8.     We encourage all eligible travellers who have not received their booster dose to do so when made available to them, for better protection against COVID-19.
