Current Travel Advice
Last updated: 11 November 2020
Where can you go now?
With the recent announcement of air travel bubble (ATB) between Singapore and Hong Kong, travellers from Singapore will be able to travel to Hong Kong (and vice versa) for leisure from November 22. As part of the air travel bubble, travellers between Singapore and Hong Kong will have to take Covid-19 tests, in lieu of serving quarantine or stay-home notices. All travellers will be required to test negative 72 hours before their scheduled departure and must meet eligibility criteria and adhere to the prevailing border control measures and public health requirements of both cities.
The following countries are open to Singaporeans and residents of Singapore and require no Covid-19 test upon/prior to arrival but a 14 day quarantine at a designated facility or a 14 day Stay Home Notice (SHN) at the traveller's place of residence will be required upon return to Singapore; Turkey, Uzbekistan and Brazil.
Other than essential travel for business, official and work purposes under Green/Fast Lane arrangements and the Periodic Commuting Arrangement, Singaporeans and residents of Singapore are advised to defer all other forms of travel overseas.

What to Expect While Travelling
Your journey starts with navigating the airport. Changi Airport has stepped up precautionary measures and is exploring innovations to create a safer travel environment while still delivering an efficient and pleasant passenger experience. Here's what to expect:
- FAST check-in kiosks and bag-drop machines will be in high demand so please make sure to allow more time than usual if you are using this option. These machines will be fitted with proximity sensors so there is no need for passengers to touch the screens and can just point their finger close to make selections.
- Some airlines are asking their passengers to check-in for flights via airline apps.
- You will need to wear a mask at all times at Changi Airport and as much as possible on the plane.
- Auto-clearance immigration lanes are being upgraded with a new biometric system that uses face and iris recognition technology to replace traditional fingerprint-scanning.
- Sanitising stations will be positioned throughout many airports and next to touch points such as check-in kiosks and arrival desks.
- High contact areas such as baggage trolleys, lift buttons and counter tops will be cleaned and disinfected more frequently.
- All arriving, transit and departing passengers at many airports including Changi Airport will be subject to temperature screening.
- Hand sanitisers of not more than 100ml each will be allowed in cabin luggage.
