Fully vaccinated travellers on all Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Scoot flights will enjoy quarantine-free entry into Singapore, without any on-arrival test or quarantine requirements, from April 1 2022.

This move comes after the Singapore government simplified the travel protocols for entry into the country.

The airlines said that this opens up the entire SIA and Scoot network to all eligible customers.

SIA and Scoot operate from 97 destinations in 34 countries to Singapore.

All fully vaccinated travellers are still required to take a pre-departure test and meet prevailing visa requirements.

As a result of the change, SIA and Scoot will no longer designate specific Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights from April 1, 2022.

Travellers, regardless of vaccination status, will be allowed to transit through Singapore on almost all SIA and Scoot flights from April 1, 2022, as long as they meet the entry requirements of their final destination.

An SIA spokesperson said; “The SIA Group welcomes the latest measures to simplify travel protocols for entry into Singapore. This supports the goal of restoring Singapore’s position as a leading tourist destination and premier air hub. It will allow our customers to plan for their holidays and reconnect families and loved ones, while also supporting the growing demand for business travel. We look forward to welcoming our customers on board our flights, where they will enjoy our warm hospitality and world-class products and services. The SIA Group will continue to closely monitor travel demand, and increase our capacity and services accordingly.”

NOTE: Passengers cannot transit through Singapore to a destination in Mainland China or Hong Kong SAR due to regulatory requirements. Passengers departing from Mainland China or Hong Kong will be allowed to transfer through Singapore Changi Airport en-route to their final destinations.
