Fewer travellers from India to be allowed into Singapore due to Covid-19

SINGAPORE - Entry approvals for non-Singapore citizens and non-permanent residents are being reduced with immediate effect, in response to the worsening Covid-19 situation in India and the emergence of new virus variants, the Ministry of Health announced on Tuesday (April 20). From 11.59pm on Thursday, all travellers from India will also have to serve an additional seven-day stay-home notice (SHN) at their place of residence, following the usual 14-day SHN at a dedicated facility. Those who have yet to complete their 14-day SHN by that time will also have to serve the extra seven days. The travellers will be tested for Covid-19 at the end of the initial 14-day SHN and at the end of the additional seven-day SHN. Migrant workers arriving from India who work in the construction, marine and process sectors will continue to be subjected to a 21-day SHN. These measures will minimise importation risks and protect public health, the MOH said.
