Singapore government decided to take the next steps to end covid emergency measures by removing the mask mandate on public transportation and ending Covid-related measures at the border. Both are effective from Monday (February 13, 2023).
Unvaccinated visitors to Singapore no longer need to have a pre-departure test to enter the city and have insurance. However, there additional changes only affect people living in the city.
Mask Mandate Removal
You have been required to wear a mask when on public transportation in Singapore.
Vaccination Requirement Removed
Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated visitors no longer need to have a pre-departure test or insurance to enter the city.
The anti-covid measures may be reactivated if new mutations of the virus burden Singapore’s healthcare sector.
I was recently in Singapore, and the only place you were required to wear a mask was when using public transportation, and I am glad this is removed. However, you are obviously allowed to wear a mask if you find it useful.
Entering Singapore is also more accessible from Monday for those not considered fully vaccinated, as no pre-departure test or additional insurance products are required.
