    Internal restrictions:

    Singapore has implemented internal measures effective until at least 1 June, under which non-essential movements will be discouraged and most offices will be required to establish work-from-home arrangements. Markets and supermarkets, clinics, hospitals, utilities, transportation and key banking services will remain open. Food establishments will also remain open, but for takeaway services only. Key economic sectors that are considered strategic or linked to the global supply chain will also remain open, but with stringent distancing measures.
    Access to specific locations is limited based on dates of the month. While only four locations were targeted by these measures, targeted action will be taken to limit movement at popular areas, indicating similar restrictions may be imposed in the coming days. More details on the restrictions can be found on the National Environment Agency’s website.
    So as to assist in contact tracing, those visiting popular malls and supermarkets are required to provide their contact details, while all workers permitted to enter their workplaces during the circuit-breaker measures are required to use a digital check-in application, SafeEntry. More details on SafeEntry’s deployment at workplaces can be found at the relevant government website.
    It is mandatory for all to wear masks when in public, except those aged below two years old and those doing vigorous exercises. People who fail to do so will be fined, serious cases will be prosecuted in court.
    All social gatherings of any size in public and private spaces are banned. Any offence will be punishable by a fine and in certain cases imprisonment. More details of the restrictions are available here.
    All non-essential ‘large-scale’ events are cancelled.
    Employers have been advised to strengthen their business continuity plans, including allowing employees to work from home. Stricter control measures, such as restricting the number of visitors, can also be expected to be imposed at healthcare facilities and schools.
    From 5 May, ‘circuit breaker’ measures have been gradually eased; selected work places are permitted to reopen at limited capacity, depending on their level of essentiality. Traditional Chinese Medicine shops were allowed to operate from 5 May. From 12 May onwards, selected businesses such as home-based food operations, food manufacturers, barbers and laundry services will be allowed to resume operations at a limited capacity. There are plans for students to return to school in small groups from 19 May, where graduating cohorts will be prioritised. Social distancing measures will remain in place.

  • Singapore Since the start of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) outbreak, the Singapore Government has implemented a series of measures to reduce the risk of imported cases and slow the transmission of the virus. Singapore’s borders are now reopening gradually to allow safe travel in limited numbers, with the necessary safeguards in place to ensure public health considerations are addressed.

    General Advisory for Visitors

    Short-term visitors are not allowed entry into Singapore, except those coming in under the Green/ Fast Lane arrangements (starting with China, and eventually covering more countries/regions), or with special prior approval. Singapore has also ceased port calls for all cruise vessels.

    Only visitors from China are allowed entry into Singapore for essential visits, via the “fast lane” that has been established between selected Chinese provinces and Singapore. Residents in China seeking to make essential business or official travel to Singapore via the fast lane must be sponsored by either a company or a Singapore Government agency, obtain approval, and meet other requirements before entering Singapore. Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents and Long-Term Pass holders returning to Singapore from China must also comply with a set of requirements. More information on the requirements for the Singapore-China Fast Lane can be found here: https://www.mfa.gov.sg/Newsroom/Press-Statements-Transcripts-and-Photos/2020/06/20200603-SG-CHINA-Fast-Lane-Essential-Travel.

    Singapore is also in ongoing discussions with various countries and regions on developing bilateral arrangements for safe travel. We will continue to update our border measures, taking into account our understanding of the virus and developments in other countries and regions.

    All incoming travellers, including Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents and Long Term Pass holders (Work Pass holders, Student’s Pass holders, Long-Term Visit Pass (LTP) holders and Dependant’s Pass holders, as well as those who have been granted In-Principle Approval (IPA) for a LTP), are required to serve a 14-day Stay-Home-Notice (SHN). From 17 June 2020, 2359 hours, in addition to serving a 14-day SHN, all travellers entering Singapore will have to undergo testing before the end of their SHN.

    All travellers entering Singapore after 17 June 2020, and who had remained in Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Hong Kong, Japan, Macao, Mainland China, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam in the last consecutive 14 days prior to their entry, do not have to serve their SHN at dedicated SHN facilities:

    a. Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents may serve their 14-day SHN at their place of residence.
    b. Long Term Pass holders may serve their 14-day SHN at a place of residence that they or their family members own or are sole tenants of; or in suitable accommodation such as a hotel, at their own cost.

    All other travellers entering Singapore will continue to serve their 14-day SHN at dedicated SHN facilities.

    All Long-Term Pass holders will require prior approval before entering Singapore. This excludes those returning under the Singapore-China Fast Lane arrangements, as separate arrangements have been put in place for this group.

    For details on border control measures in Singapore, please visit the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website (https://www.ica.gov.sg/covid-19).

    If you are in Singapore, please do your part by practising good personal hygiene, monitor your own health and follow appropriate safe management measures. For the latest update on the COVID-19 situation in Singapore, please visit the Ministry of Health (MOH) website (https://www.moh.gov.sg/covid-19).
