Singapore tightens Covid19 rules for travellers from India

COVID-19 border measures will be tightened for travellers from India, who will have to serve an additional seven days of stay-home notice at their residence following their 14-day stay-home notice at dedicated facilities, said the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Tuesday (Apr 20). 

Travellers from India will be tested after their 14-day stay-home notice period, according to current requirements, and again after the seven-day stay-home notice period. 

Fewer entry approvals from India will be granted for non-Singapore citizens or permanent residents with immediate effect, the ministry said in another press release also published Tuesday. Starting at the end of April 22, all travelers who have recently been to India will be subjected to an extra seven days of home isolation following their 14-day quarantine at a government-designated facility.

Arriving travellers who were in Britain or South Africa in the last 14 days before their entry will continue to be subjected to a seven-day SHN period at their place of residence, following their 14-day SHN at dedicated facilities.
