Singapore aims to remove all tests for vaccinated visitors 'very soon': STB chief

·1-min read

The announcement was made by STB CEO Keith Tan at a forum in Manila on Tuesday.

Singapore targets to remove all Covid-19 tests for fully-vaccinated visitors “very soon,” possibly in the next few weeks, Keith Tan, chief executive of the nation’s tourism board, said in a forum in Manila Tuesday.

The city-state has already dropped most restrictions for inoculated travellers, and people can now arrive at Changi Airport without having to quarantine or test on arrival. Visitors still have to do a test before entering the country.

Singapore would join a growing list of countries including the UK, Ireland, Norway and Jordan that have scrapped tests for arriving travellers. According to travel-booking site Kayak.com, more than 30 countries worldwide currently have no Covid-19 restrictions for most visitors. Some 158 have some requirements in place, while 36 nations are effectively closed, the site says.
