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.
