Though the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) allows quarantine-free travel to Singapore, there are some rules that still need to be followed.
Conditions of the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL)
1– A VTL traveller must be fully vaccinated and should have valid proof of vaccination issued in any VTL country/region or Singapore. Covishield and Covaxin both are approved for travel to Singapore.
2– Should have only travelled to/transited via any VTL countries/regions for the last 14 days before departing for Singapore.
3– Travel to Singapore on a designated VTL flight.
4– Undergo a COVID-19 PCR test or Antigen Rapid Test (ART) within two days before the scheduled departure time of his/her flight.
5– Undergo a COVID-19 PCR test at the airport upon arrival in Singapore, and immediately take private transportation, taxi, or private hire car from the airport to the place of accommodation as declared in the VTL application and remain isolated at the place of accommodation until the on-arrival test result is confirmed to be negative.
For detailed information on this, please refer to our COVID-19 Guidelines Page.
Application for VTL for India:
Travellers departing from India may submit their applications from 22nd November 2021, 6:00 pm SGT.
Travellers must carry along an electronic or physical copy of the documents applicable to them, and be prepared to present them to airline staff and immigration officers. Some of the important documents include accepted proof of vaccination, negative pre-departure COVID-19 test, valid vaccinated travel pass (VTP), COVID-19 insurance policy and a valid visa (for visa-required visitors).
