Singapore has announced plans to further ease its Covid-19 restrictions.
From August 28 non-vaccinated travellers will no longer be required to undergo a seven-day SHN (Stay Home Notice) quarantine period on arrival into the city-state, or to take a PCR test at the end of the seven days.
They will however still have to take a pre-departure test within two days of leaving for Singapore, a requirement which was removed for fully vaccinated travellers in late April.
In addition, from August 29 mask wearing will no longer be compulsory in most indoor settings, except for those “where essential services are carried out in enclosed and crowded areas, and which are frequently used by vulnerable persons”.
The above means that masks must still be worn on Singapore’s MRT/LRT and public buses, as well as in indoor public transport facilities including boarding areas within bus interchanges and MRT platforms.
Last month British Airways confirmed plans to resume its second daily service between London and Singapore, with flights BA11 and BA12 restarting for the winter 2022 schedules from October 30, 2022.
