Singapore will introduce quarantine-free travel lanes for vaccinated passengers from Germany and Brunei Darussalam next month.
Under the vaccinated travel lanes, passengers who are fully vaccinated and arriving from Germany or Brunei from Sep 8 will not have to serve a stay-home notice in Singapore, the COVID-19 multi-ministry task force announced on Thursday (Aug 19).
Vaccinated travellers will be required to undergo four COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests – one prior to departure (within 48 hours), one upon arrival at Changi Airport, and two post-arrival tests on day three and seven at a certified facility in Singapore.
The vaccinated travel lanes will be open for all travel purposes, whether for leisure, business or to visit family. Any passenger who is fully vaccinated and travelling from Germany or Brunei qualifies for travel under the scheme, as long as they fulfil the requirements.
A person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after they have received both doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna or other vaccines listed under the World Health Organization (WHO) emergency use list, such as Sinovac and AstraZeneca.
