Under Singapore’s Vaccinated Travel Framework (VTF), Singapore is open to all fully-vaccinated travellers who can visit Singapore without quarantine or testing requirements. This also
applies to children aged 12 and below who are not vaccinated. The VTF replaces the previous Vaccinated Travel Lane scheme, which has welcomed close to 585,000 travellers to Singapore between September 2021 and March 2022.
International Visitor Arrivals (IVA) numbers for the first quarter (January – March 2022) have been encouraging, with a 252% increment compared to the same period last year. As of two weeks ago, air passenger traffic in Singapore reached 31% of pre-COVID levels, a signal that Singapore retains appeal as a destination of choice.
The COVID-19 situation has also stabilised in Singapore. This has allowed us to further ease community measures, and stage large-scale, high-quality business and leisure events this year, such as the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix in September, ITB Asia in October, and the inaugural Standard Chartered Singapore Trophy 2022 in July, which will see Premier League giants Liverpool FC and Crystal Palace FC facing off at our National Stadium.
There are no longer group size or capacity limits, while mask-wearing is now optional outdoors. The nightlife businesses have also resumed, adding buzz and vibrancy to our city, and complementing the exciting calendar of events and experiences that visitors can look forward to.
