G'day, mate! Singaporeans allowed quarantine-free travel to Australia
Fully-vaccinated Singaporeans can travel to Australia without restrictions starting 8 November.
Australia will now allow fully-vaccinated Singapore travelers to enter the country starting 8 November, the same day Singapore extended the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) scheme to travelers from Australia.
"This announcement by Australia is yet another step forward to a new normal. Australia’s opening for quarantine free travel to Singapore citizens, regardless of purpose of travel, sends a loud and clear message that Australia is pressing ahead with her plans to reopen her borders," said International Air Transport Association Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific Philip Goh.
Pre-COVID, Australia was amongst the top ten markets for annual passenger arrivals at Changi Airport, accounting for about 4% of total arrivals in 2019.
More than 50,000 Singaporeans live in Australia, and over 25,000 Australians live in Singapore.
