Countries and vaccination statuses would be included in the classification.
Singapore’s Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced that new classifications would be put in place as a response to increased vaccinations from regions, 6 August.
Four categories were put in place.
Category I would be for travellers from Mainland China, excluding Jiangsu Province, New Zealand, and Taiwan. A Stay-Home Notice (SHN) will not be issued.
Category II, meanwhile, only includes visitors from Jiangsu China and would require them to go under a seven-day SHN at their accommodation of choice.
Category III includes tourists from Austria, Italy, Norway, Republic of Korea, and Switzerland. Unvaccinated people will be required a 14-day SHN at dedicated facilities, while vaccinated will have the freedom to choose which facility.
Category IV includes travellers from countries not mentioned and will be required to undergo a 14-day SHN at specific facilities, as well.
