Simplified testing for VTL arrivals from Mar 15; Singapore working with Malaysia on Apr 1 reopening

Taskforce looking at concept of "vaccinated traveller" rather than having VTLs with different countries


SINGAPORE is further simplifying its on-arrival tests for Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) arrivals, in preparation for a new Vaccinated Travel concept in the coming weeks, the multi-ministry taskforce on Covid-19 said at a press conference on Friday (Mar 11).

From Mar 14, 11.59 pm, arriving VTL and Category I travellers will only need to take an unsupervised self-swab Antigen Rapid Test (ART) within 24 hours of entry, said taskforce co-chair and Trade and Industry Minister Gan Kim Yong.
