SINGAPORE, 22 April (CNA)- All fully vaccinated travellers entering Singapore via air or sea checkpoints will no longer need to take a pre-departure test from Apr 26.

This is compared to current measures, which require those arriving from these checkpoints to take a test within two days of their departure for Singapore.

“With this move, it will mean that fully vaccinated and well travellers will not require any tests to enter Singapore,” said the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Friday (Apr 22).

The removal of the pre-departure test requirement also applies to non-fully vaccinated children aged 12 and below.

The move is the latest in a string of efforts made in recent weeks to relax travel restrictions, including the launch of the Vaccinated Travel Framework on Apr 1 and the removal of the requirement for on-arrival tests.
