Authorities in Singapore have announced a travel bubble with Indonesia will be launched from November 29 for fully vaccinated travellers.

Singapore.- The government of Singapore continues opening its borders and has recently announced it will launch a new travel bubble with Indonesia from November 29.

Those who want to enter Singapore must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and will be not required to undergo quarantine. The announcement is similar to the one the government made a week ago when a travel bubble with Malaysia was announced.

According to analysts, the news was well received by the tourism market and the city-state’s two casino resorts, Marina Bay Sands, and Resorts World Sentosa as tourists from Indonesia are key consumers for Singapore’s gaming industry.

Authorities expect to announce a similar scheme with India in the following weeks. 

The Government of Singapore has previously launched a travel bubble with Australia. Australian residents and citizens were allowed to enter from November 8.

Singapore also opened its borders to the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, France, and most recently, Switzerland. Tourists are required to have a Covid-19 test when they arrive and another on their 10th day in the country. 

Marina Bay Sands aims to attract Australian tourists

Marina Bay Sands (MBS) has launched new package deals to attract Australian tourists.

Paul Town, MBS chief operating officer, stated: “Australia was one of the top five source markets for both Singapore and Marina Bay Sands. The establishment of the Vaccinated Travel Lane with Australia is an important moment and allows for some form of normalcy to return, in a controlled manner.”

Town said the company has invested an unspecified amount of cash in the integrated resort in the last 20 months to prepare for the return of foreign visitors.
