COVID travel restrictions eased for Australians Travelling to Singapore

Starting next week, Singapore will allow travellers from Australia, except the Victoria coronavirus hotspot, to enter the island.

Last month, the bustling city-state welcomed tourists from Brunei and New Zealand, and reopened its borders cautiously to help revive its airport, a key hub for regional aviation.

There is also an exception from coronavirus restrictions for Vietnam.

The Aviation Authority has reported that there is a low chance of Australia and Vietnam importing viruses.

Upon arrival, travellers must undergo a virus swab examination, fly on direct flights (without travelling to a third country) and download a mobile contact tracking app.

Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung said in a Facebook post that “with each step of safe opening of our borders, we start to rebuild the bridges and resuscitate Changi Airport”.

The changes start from October 8.
