COVID-19: Singapore tightens border measures for travellers from Australia’s Victoria state

SINGAPORE: Singapore will tighten border control measures for those with a travel history to Australia’s Victoria state, after a spike in COVID-19 cases there, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Thursday (May 27).

From 11.59pm on Saturday, short-term travellers holding an Air Travel Pass with travel history to Victoria within the last 21 days before departing for Singapore will not be allowed to enter the country.

Singapore citizens, permanent residents and long-term pass holders with travel history to Victoria within the last 21 days before departure will be subject to an on-arrival COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, a seven-day stay-home notice at their place of residence, and a COVID-19 PCR test before the end of the stay-home notice period.
