Welcome to Singapore

Singapore offers a bit of everything: entertainment, architecture, an incredible amount of green spaces and a long list of local excursions. Did we mention that it’s also an absolute paradise for those who love to eat?

Singapore has been an independent state for only 56 years and its history is tied closely to that of Malaysia. In the 7th century, what is now the main island of Singapore was settled by Malays, most of whom came from Java and Sumatra. In the following centuries, the island belonged to the Buddhist kingdom of Srivijaya. 

Around the year 1150, the city of Temasek ("city by the sea") was founded, the forerunner of today's Singapore. Even then, the strategic location of the city became apparent, and it soon developed into a bustling trading centre and was constantly fought over. 

Today, the city-state is considered Asia's most important financial centre along with Hong Kong. It’s also one of the ten most visited cities in the world — no wonder it's on your list then.

Singapore: The Must See Sights

Many travellers never get past the ‘connecting flights’ terminal at Singapore Changi Airport. But there are countless reasons to make Singapore your main destination.

Wander along Marina Bay, one of the city’s most famous attractions, or relax in the Gardens by the Bay. Across from the Marina Bay Sands Hotel you will find the Merlion Singapore (another must-see) — and one you might recognise from postcards and photos of the city. Head back here when the sun goes down and you’ll have a perfect view of the hotel’s laser show.

 The Little India neighbourhood is another must-do, where visitors are treated to colourful Hindu temples and bustling markets. 

In the mood for the beach? Then Sentosa Island is the place to be. While Orchard Road should be your number one pick for retail therapy. And to end the day, enjoy the fabulous view from one of the hip sky-bars in the financial district — Level33 does discount drinks before 8pm.

Can You Travel To Singapore?

Entry to Singapore
Only Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents can enter Singapore without permission.

Visitors, including Long Term Pass holders, are not able to enter Singapore without prior permission from the Singapore government.

Once you have permission to enter Singapore you must submit an online health declaration in advance of your arrival. If you’re allowed to enter, you must have travel insurance of at least S$30,000 covering Covid-19 hospitalisation and treatment.

Travellers (aged 3 and above) will be required to present a valid negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure to Singapore. All arrivals must have three further PCR COVID-19 tests after arrival:

  • one upon arrival in Singapore
  • one after 14 days
  • one at the end of their 21 day quarantine period

Quarantine Requirements
Everyone granted permission to enter Singapore will be tested for COVID-19 upon arrival and arrivals from most destinations will be issued with a Stay at Home Notice (SHN) for 14 days. For arrivals from the UK and from most destinations the SHNs must be served at a government designated hotel. The cost must be met by the traveller.

Everyone aged over 12 who is in home quarantine will need by law to wear an electronic tag for the duration of their quarantine period.

Local Measures

  • You will need to scan in and out of these places using the Trace Together phone app or token: public buildings, shopping centres and malls, schools, workplaces, places of worship
  • Dining out in restaurants and cafes indoors is now allowed for up to 5 people from different households
  • Exercise indoors without a mask is allowed, but only if you're in a group of 5 or a class of up to 50
  • You can exercise outdoors without a mask with a maximum of 5 people in a group

Travelling To Singapore FAQs

Advice and answers from the Corona Test Centre Team

What do the three colours of the UK’s ‘Traffic Light System’ for travel mean?

  • Red: You must pay for a 10-day stay in a managed quarantine hotel, as well as taking a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test) and two PCR tests upon return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8).
  • Amber: You will need to quarantine for 10 days, as well as taking a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test), and two PCR tests on return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8). When you return to the UK,  you can take a test on Day 5 (Test to Release) to leave quarantine early.
  • Green: You will not need to quarantine on return, but you must take a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test), and a PCR test on return to the UK on Day 2.


How will the government decide which countries go on the green, amber or red lists?

Countries are assigned to the three lists, based on a range of Covid-19 health metrics, which include figures on population vaccination, infection rates and prevalence of variants. The different traffic light colours indicate the risk in each destination and the associated tests and quarantine periods required. Lists are reassessed every three weeks, to account for changes in each country’s COVID-19 situation.

Will I need a PCR Fit to Fly Certificate to travel to

Singapore

?

The PCR test is the gold standard for testing coronavirus and so is recommended for travel to all countries. For Singapore, only PCR Fit to Fly Certificates are accepted.

Will I need an Antigen Fit to Fly Certificate to travel to

Singapore

?

The PCR test is the gold standard for testing coronavirus and so is recommended for travel to all countries. For Singapore, only PCR Fit to Fly Certificates are accepted. You will not be able to use an Antigen Fit to Fly Certificate to enter Singapore but you will be able to use one to return to the UK.

Will I need a Day 2 test or Day 2 and 8 when I return to the UK?

Singapore is currently on the green list, this means that you will need a Day 2 PCR test. You will need to buy this before you travel to the UK and use the reference code on your passenger location form. You do not need to quarantine on arrival unless you test positive. Please note that the travel restrictions are subject to change at very short notice.

I’m vaccinated, what tests do I need?

Singapore is currently on the green list, this means that you will need a Day 2 PCR test, even though you are double vaccinated. You will need to buy this before you travel to the UK and use the reference code on your passenger location form. You do not need to quarantine on arrival unless you test positive. Please note that the travel restrictions are subject to change at very short notice.

Can I enter

Singapore

with a double vaccination certificate?

Singapore does not accept vaccination as an entry requirement and so you will need to provide a PCR Fit to Fly Certificate

What happens if I have visited another country before flying back to the UK from

Singapore

?

The government advice for passengers travelling from Singapore is that if you have visited another country in the 10 days before you arrive in the UK that is a higher risk than Singapore, you must follow the travel guidance for the highest risk country you visited.

What else will I need to return to the UK?

For all countries, including Singapore, you will need to take an Antigen Fit to Fly test before departing for the UK. This can be bought at Corona Test Centre’s to take with you on your travels.
