To date, Singapore has launched Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTLs) with Australia, Brunei, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, and the US. Singapore will also be launching VTLs with India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Finland and Sweden from November 29, and Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates from December 6.

Travellers under the VTLs are not subject to Stay-Home Notice (SHN) on arrival. Instead, they will be required to produce a negative pre-departure test taken within two days prior to departure and undergo an on-arrival Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test.

Singapore will launch VTLs with Thailand from December 14 and with Cambodia, Fiji, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Turkey from December 16. Returning Singapore citizens and permanent residents who are fully vaccinated will not need to apply for Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP) to use the VTLs for travel, said the ministry.
