Fully vaxxed Pinoys can enter Singapore


Next Friday, March 4, 2022, Fully-vaccinated Filipino tourists and short-term visitors can enter Singapore "quarantine-free" starting Friday, March 4, courtesy of the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) program, according to the latest advisory of Philippine Airlines.

To qualify, passengers must have received COVID-19 vaccines approved by the World Health Organization.

They should present Proof of Vaccination; COVID-19 vaccination certificate (VaxCertPH) issued by the Department of Health, Negative COVID-19 Test Result and Travel Insurance.

To book in a VTL Flight, passengers must visit the Singapore government website and apply for a Virtual Travel Pass.

For a hassle-free application, they should have a valid passport, proof of vaccination, and an address where they plan to stay in Singapore.

Arriving passengers in Singapore will have up to 24 hours from their entry to take a supervised self-swab (SSS) Antigen Rapid Test (ART) at one of the testing centers located across Singapore.

The weblink to book a test will be provided in the Testing Notice issued to travelers on arrival in Singapore.

Once negative results are available, they are free to go out.

However, except for going to the supervised self-swab, travelers are required to isolate in their accommodation until they have tested negative on the supervised Antigen Rapid Test.

They should take private transport to and from testing centers.

Travelers who feel unwell should visit a clinic for medical advice via private transport.
