The Singapore authorities have taken the following steps to further limit the risk of community spread in Singapore.
- All new visitors who have travelled to Mainland China (not including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) within the last 14 days, will not be allowed to enter or transit through Singapore. This will include travellers who transit in Mainland China to Singapore regardless of the duration and whether they had cleared immigration in China.
- Previously issued short-term and multiple-visit visas, as well as visa-free transit facilities for those with People’s Republic of China passports, have been suspended. During this period, this group will not be allowed entry into Singapore.
- While those with People’s Republic of China passports and no travel history to Mainland China for more than 14 days will not be able to enter Singapore, they may transit through Singapore. However, those holding People's Republic of China passports issued in Hubei (except for Singapore residents and long-term pass holders) will not be allowed to enter or transit through Singapore regardless of their travel history.
- Returning residents (Singapore citizens and Permanent Residents) and long-term pass holders, including those with People’s Republic of China passports issued in Hubei, with travel history to Mainland China within the last 14 days will be allowed entry into Singapore. This group will be subjected to temperature screenings. If assessed necessary by medical staff, they will be either placed in a quarantine facility or asked to take a mandatory 14 day leave of absence.
Singapore Airlines and SilkAir passengers who are affected by the entry restrictions will not be allowed to travel to Singapore.
