Singapore to Lift Border Restrictions for Visitors from Taiwan

(11 Dec 2020)
Singapore will lift border restrictions for visitors
from Taiwan, effective 00:01 on 18 December 2020.

Taiwan has a comprehensive public health
surveillance system and has displayed successful control over the
spread of the COVID19 virus. Over the past 28 days, Taiwan has
reported zero local COVID19 cases.

Visitors travelling from
Taiwan can now apply for an Air Travel Pass (ATP) for entry into
Singapore on or after 18 December 2020.

Applicants must have remained in Taiwan for
the 14 consecutive days prior to their entry. They will
undergo a COVID19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test upon
arrival at the airport. If the result is negative, they will be
allowed to go about their activities in Singapore, without a need
to serve a Stay-Home Notice (SHN), more commonly known as
quarantine.


From 00:01 (Singapore time) on 18 December 2020, Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents and Long-Term Pass
holders returning from Taiwan will similarly undergo a COVID19
PCR test upon arrival. This is in lieu of a 7-day SHN with a
COVID19 PCR test before the end of the SHN period. If the result
is negative, they will be allowed to go about their activities in
Singapore.

Visitors can apply for the single-entry ATP, at no
charge, between seven and thirty calendar days prior to their
intended date of entry into Singapore.

This latest initiative follows the earlier lifting
of border restrictions for visitors from Australia, Brunei
Darussalam, Mainland China, New Zealand and Vietnam.

As of 23:59 on 10
December 2020, Singapore has approved 9,284 applications for
visitors from these places, and received 4,050 visitors. As of
23:59 on 9
December, all visitors who have arrived in Singapore
under the ATP have tested negative for COVID19.

To expedite the COVID19 PCR test at the
airport, all passengers travelling from Australia, Brunei
Darussalam, Mainland China, New Zealand, Taiwan and Vietnam are strongly encouraged to
register and
pre-pay
for their on-arrival COVID19 PCR test prior to
departing for Singapore.

Requirements for Visitors Entering
Singapore Under the Air
Travel Pass

ATP
applicants must comply with the following conditions of travel:

Travel History – They must have spent the last
14 consecutive days in Taiwan before departing for Singapore. All
visitors must travel to Singapore on direct flights without
transit.

On-Arrival COVID19 Testing – Upon arrival in
Singapore, visitors must undergo a COVID19 PCR test at the
airport. The test results will be out within 48 hours, and
typically within 12 hours. After taking the COVID19 PCR test,
visitors are to take private transportation, taxi, or private hire
car from the  airport to their declared place of
accommodation. They must remain isolated at the accommodation
until the test result is confirmed to be negative. Checks will be
made to ensure that this is adhered to. After being notified of
their negative test results, visitors will be allowed to go about
their activities in Singapore.

Contact Tracing – To facilitate the contact
tracing process, visitors must download and register for the TraceTogether app on their mobile devices prior to departing for
Singapore, keep it activated during their stay there, and not
delete it for 14 consecutive days after leaving Singapore. Should
they subsequently test positive for COVID19 within 14 days after
leaving Singapore, they will be required to upload data in the app
upon request by the Singapore Ministry of Health.

Medical Costs – Visitors must be responsible
for their medical bills related to COVID19 while in Singapore.
This includes costs related to tests and isolation imposed on
visitors for public health reasons should they be suspected of
being infected with COVID19, as well as medical treatment for
COVID19.

The above requirements could change at any
moment. Travellers are strongly advised to check with the relevant
authorities prior to purchasing a plane ticket and boarding their
flight.
