Entry approvals for fully vaccinated work pass holders to resume

More foreign workers can enter Singapore in the coming days as long as they are fully vaccinated.

The government will resume processing entry approvals for fully vaccinated work pass holders and their dependents starting 10 August.

We had throttled down these approvals, over the period of Heightened Alert. But now that we have reached a higher level of vaccine coverage, we will start to adjust our border measures, and we will resume entry approvals for such fully vaccinated work pass holders and their dependents, subject to prevailing SHN requirements,” Minister of Finance Lawrence Wong said in a press briefing 6 August.

As of 20th August, fully vaccinated travellers from select countries can opt-out of serving their SHN or stay-home notice in dedicated facilities, and instead go through the 14-day quarantine at home or at other suitable accommodations.

“It's just useful to take a step back, remember we have a tiered system of border measures. We classify it based on the risk levels of the source countries. So if the country is very safe, low risk, we have a unilateral opening,” Wong said.

The government is set to ease Singapore’s border restrictions further once 80% of the population is fully vaccinated.
