BHGH Travel Update: Singapore Is Reopening!

Howdy! Today we bring you news that Southeast Asia’s sunny, tropical island of Singapore is reopening for travelers from the United States and Canada (among other destinations).

Here are the details according to the Singapore Tourism Board:

The Singapore Tourism Board announced today that vaccinated U.S. and Canadian tourists are now able to visit the island destination once again. With Singapore’s high vaccination rate, the destination is moving to the next step of the safe reopening of the tourism sector by implementing local measures to keep travelers and residents safe, abiding by the requirements on COVID19 prevention and Singapore public health regulations.

As part of Singapore’s efforts to reopen borders safely, fully vaccinated U.S. and Canadian travelers looking to make future travel plans can safely enter and depart Singapore via the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL). The requirements include:

For travelers vaccinated in the U.S. or Canada, we currently accept vaccination certificates issued in the SMART Health Card (SHC) format, by issuers in Canada or the U.S. on the Common Trust
Network.

Vaccinated travelers will be required to undergo two COVID-19 PCR tests, including a predeparture PCR test within 48 hours of their scheduled departure and obtain a negative test result. They will also need to take on-arrival test at Changi Airport and remain self-isolated until their test result is confirmed to be negative.

Travelers who are traveling to Singapore under the VTL must travel into Singapore on designated
VTL flights.

Short-term visitors must purchase travel insurance for the entire duration of their stay in Singapore, with a minimum coverage of S$30,000 for COVID-19-related medical treatment and hospitalization costs, prior to travel to Singapore.

Prior to travel to Singapore, visitors who wish to travel under the VTL will need to apply for a Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP) seven to 30 days prior to the intended date of entry into Singapore.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about your upcoming trip to Singapore with Book Here, Give Here, please reach out to your Travel Gurus.

Namaste!
