The long-awaited Singapore-Hong Kong travel bubble has been delayed again until further notice due to a rise in Covid-19 cases in Singapore.
Singapore.- Singapore’s Ministry of Transport has confirmed that the planned travel bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong has been put back until at least June.
In April, the Ministry of Transport announced that an air travel bubble with Hong Kong was to begin on May 26. However, last week Singapore registered new cases of Covid-19, leading to the plans to be put back.
One of the main requirements for the travel bubble was that the two countries should have zero cases of Covid-19. Hong Kong has met the criteria, but the emergence of new cases in Singapore rules out the arrangement for now.
The two countries will closely monitor the public health situation. Hong Kong has said that an announcement will be made on or before June 13.
