Singapore eases its COVID-19 restrictions by announcing there will be no more testing for vaccinated travelers. However, as the country has tightened travel restrictions, here are some important things to note.

From 1 July 2022, all long-term passport holders between the ages of 13 and 17 traveling to Singapore must be fully vaccinated. COVID-19 pre-emergence testing is no longer required for all vaccinated travelers and under-vaccinated children under the age of 12.

However, for travelers aged 13 and over who do not have all vaccines, the rules remain the same. For unvaccinated travelers, a pre-departure test is mandatory within 48 hours of departure, followed by a seven-day home quarantine, followed by a PCR test at the end of the quarantine period.

The change has led to a surge in internet searches for places in the country and other parts of Southeast Asia and the Pacific. As neighboring ASEAN countries reopen their borders to travelers, the island destination is now one of the most sought-after countries to visit. After that, the number of short vacationers should increase.

Now that you can start planning a trip to Singapore, here are some places and activities that you can do safely and even without too much physical contact. Gardens by the Bay, Jurong Bird Park, ArtScience Museum Singapore, Singapore Car Cable Tours, Singapore Flyer, and SEA Aquarium are some of the things you can plan and visit in Singapore.
