Singapore, Hong Kong to establish travel bubble

The Lion City has lowered the quarantine entry for Hong Kong travellers.

Singapore and Hong Kong will set up a travel bubble that will exempt travellers from both cities from quarantine, reports Bloomberg.

Mandatory testing will be in place, said Singapore transport minister Ong Ye Kung, who also hopes for the bubble to start in “weeks”. Hong Kong’s commerce and economic development minister, Edward Yau, later confirmed the agreement.

Earlier this week, Singapore lowered the quarantine threshold for travelers coming from Hong Kong from 14 to seven days and added Hong Kong to its list of countries considered “well under control and the risk of importation is low.”

In addition, Ong told the parliament of the desire internationally to cautiously open the skies up again, and that Hong Kong intended to negotiate travel bubble arrangements with places including Singapore.
