Singapore opens VTLs to five more countries

Three of the five countries are in the Middle East.

In a multi-ministry task force press conference on 15 November, Transport Minister S. Israwan announced the opening of five additional vaccinated travel lanes (VTLs).

From 29 November, Singapore will launch unilateral VTLs with Indonesia and India. The United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar will all get VTLs from 6 December. In addition, the country will increase the daily quota for VTLs from 6,000 to 10,000.

Israwan noted some countries have adjusted their border measures for travellers from Singapore. The country, in turn, will adjust border measures based on the circumstances in other countries. It comes after the US and the EU heightened their travel advisories towards Singapore.
