Singapore’s measures for inbound travelers in relation to COVID-19 are summarized in this appendix.
Is a negative COVID-19 test (PCR and/or serology) required for entry? No
While a COVID-19 test is not required for entry, Singapore requires all those entering the country to serve a mandatory SHN and COVID-19 testing will take place at the end of that SHN period. Please refer to this appendix for information on where SHNs will be served based on traveler type, what costs travelers are responsible for, and when COVID-19 testing will take place.
Are health screening procedures in place at airports and other ports of entry? Yes
Health screening procedures consist of the previously mentioned mandatory SHNs and COVID-19 testing for all those admitted into Singapore.
Residents on long-term passes issued by the Ministry of Manpower or Immigration & Checkpoints Authority must apply for extensions of their passes with the appropriate Singapore government agency.
Short-term visitors who are already in Singapore are not affected by this policy and may apply online if they need to extend their stay in Singapore.
