The government in Singapore has announced that quarantine will be reduced to 10 days for people coming from certain places.

Singapore.- Authorities in Singapore have announced a shorter 10-day quarantine for travellers coming from a list of “Category 3” countries.

The 10-day quarantine will apply for arrivals who have spent their last 14 days in Austria, Bahrain, Bhutan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, Fiji, Greece, Iceland, the Republic of Ireland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, the Maldives, Norway, Slovakia, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom or the United States.

Tourists will be required to have a Covid-19 test when they arrive and another on their 10th day in the country. Visitors arriving from Category 2 countries, which include France, Finland, Italy, Japan, Portugal and Spain, will still have to undergo a 14-day quarantine.

In August, authorities announced that people coming from Hong Kong and Macau will not be required to undergo the 14-day quarantine. Singapore also began testing a quarantine-free travel corridor with Germany and Brunei for fully vaccinated travellers from September.

Standing bets allowed at table games

The government of Singapore has allowed casinos to resume taking standing bets at table games. Resorts World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands have also been allowed to increase guest capacity from 25 per cent to 50 per cent of pre-pandemic levels at non-gaming attractions.

The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) said standing bets remain subject to safe management measures such as a 1-metre safe distance between individuals and a maximum of five people including seated and standing players, and the dealer.

Casino operators will have to follow “SG Clean” requirements for good personal and environmental hygiene habits.
