The government in Singapore has announced that people coming from Hong Kong and Macau will not be required to undergo a 14-day quarantine.
Singapore.- Authorities in Singapore have announced an easing of certain Covid-19 restrictions for visitors.
Under the new measures, visitors will be divided into four categories based on their travel history in the previous 21 days.
Category 1 will include people coming from Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, New Zealand and China. They will only be required to have a Covid-19 test and will not need to undergo a 14-day quarantine.
In the case of Hong Kong, the measure won’t be the same for visitors from Singapore who want to go there as the country has given up a potential travel bubble with Singapore and decided to extend quarantine measures until March 2022.
Category 2 will include visitors from Australia, Canada, Germany and from Jiansu province in China. They will have to undergo a 7-day quarantine.
Category 3 is for people coming from Japan and South Korea. Travellers will be required to comply with a 14-day quarantine.
As for Category 4, visitors will have to undergo a 14-day quarantine at places designed by health authorities and will have to undergo a testing regime.
Authorities will start testing a quarantine-free travel corridor with Germany and Brunei for fully vaccinated travellers from September.
