Singapore repeal mandatory PCR test rules Covid-19 for visitors who have completed vaccination starting April 26 next.
“With this measure, visitors who have been fully vaccinated will no longer be required to test again to enter Singapore,” the Ministry of Health said in a statement on Friday (22/4).
With this revocation, Singapore no longer requires PCR tests which previously had to be carried out two days before departure to the country.
The revocation of the pre-departure test also applies to children under 12 years old who have not been fully vaccinated.
In addition, non-Malaysian work permit holders who have been fully vaccinated will no longer be required to do a PCR test starting May 1.
As reported Channel NewsAsiathey also no longer need an entry permit from the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MoM).
This requirement will also apply to work permit holders from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau.
“This simplifies the sign-in process through a one-stop service for employers,” the MOM statement said.
The Singapore government took this step as a series of border easing towards the Covid-19 endemic phase.
Initially, Singapore required a Covid-19 test before departure and upon arrival of visitors to the country. Singapore had already abolished the Covid test requirement upon arrival in the country, on April 1.
