Yesterday the Singapore government announced fully vaccinated Australians could travel along its coveted Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL), with designated flights to be launched on 8 November.
Under the VTL arrangement, vaccinated Australians who travel to Singapore on designated VTL flights will not be subjected to quarantine arrangements upon arrival, but will be tested before and after they arrive in Singapore.
“We’re extremely thrilled with the resumption of travel between Australia and Singapore,” Singapore Tourism Board Oceania executive director Oliver Chong said.
“We know Aussies are avid travellers and can’t wait to travel overseas, so we hope this will encourage them to make plans to visit Singapore as soon as they can.”
Hotels, attractions and other businesses have Safe Management Measures in place which includes mask wearing, physical distancing and SafeEntry check-in and check-out using Singapore’s TraceTogether (TT) app.
Singapore’s SG Clean initiative – a national certification programme for businesses that meet high standards of cleanliness and hygiene – will be more important than ever. Premises certified as SG Clean are identifiable by the certificate and signage, which are featured prominently within each establishment. More details and a full list of certified premises can be found here. These initiatives will give travellers added peace of mind as they explore Singapore.
“Singapore is known for being innovative and constantly evolving, and this hasn’t changed,” Chong said.
“Despite the pandemic, the industry has risen to the challenge, with new hotels, restaurants and bars opening in the past year for visitors to come and enjoy, along with old favourites, some of which have had makeovers too.”
