Singapore’s government has expressed confidence that visitor numbers will be at least two-thirds higher in the second half of the year than in the first. The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) expects “between 4 and 6 million” international visitor arrivals for the whole of 2022.

In April, authorities announced the reopening of borders to all fully vaccinated travellers. The announcement brought a strong growth in the volume of air passengers arriving in the country.

Marina Bay Sands licence extended until April 2025 

Singapore’s Casino Regulatory Authority has extended Marina Bay Sands’ licence for three years until April 2025, confirming that it has complied with the Casino Control Act. The extension was delayed due to changes to Singapore’s gaming legislation.

In March, the Singapore parliament approved the Gambling Regulatory Authority of Singapore Bill and the Gambling Control Bill. The former will create the Gambling Regulatory Authority (GRA) as a single regulator for all forms of gambling.
