Digital COVID-19 health pass approved for entrance to Singapore
Changi Airport will have a dedicated lane to digitally verify health credentials.
All travellers from Malaysia and Indonesia will now have the option to use verified digital copies of a COVID-19 health pass in lieu of actual papers when entering Singapore.
Before departure to Singapore, travellers are advised to check the Singapore SafeTravel website for travel requirements, then book a pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test at healthcare providers that issue digital health credentials through secure mobile app, including the recently launched ICC AOKpass.
These travellers will each receive their test result with a unique QR code, which authenticates and securely stores their negative COVID-19 test results. Upon arrival at Changi Airport, they can use the dedicated immigration counters to swiftly verify their health credentials by scanning the given QR code in their ICC AOKpass app.
Plans to add more countries that will be able use the digital health pass are already underway.
The ICC AOKpass is a health records authentication and presentation technology launched by the International Chamber of Commerce (“ICC”), International SOS and SGS Group, and co-developed with Singapore-based start-up AOKpass Pte Ltd.
