Stepping down of the Vaccinated Travel Framework
Non-vaccinated travellers can enter Singapore without proof of a negative Pre-Departure Test from 13 February 2023
min read Published on 09 Feb 2023

The Vaccinated Travel Framework (VTF) was launched in April 2022 to facilitate the safe resumption of international travel. Given the stable and improving global COVID-19 situation, and the low impact of imported cases on our healthcare capacity, the remaining COVID-19 border measures will be lifted.

From 13 February 2023,

  • All non-fully vaccinated travellers entering Singapore will no longer be required to show proof of a negative Pre-Departure Test.
  • Non-fully vaccinated Short Term Visitors will no longer be required to purchase COVID-19 travel insurance.

The VTF will remain in place for reactivation if there are international developments of concern, such as new severe variants or signs that our healthcare capacity is strained by imported cases.


Continued submission of health declaration and screening of infectious diseases

All travellers entering Singapore via air or sea (including Singapore residents), and Short-Term Visitors entering via land, are to continue submitting their health declaration via the SG Arrival Card e-service. They will also be screened for other infectious diseases of concern, such as Yellow Fever, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome and Ebola.

Travellers are advised to check the ICA website for the latest border measures before entering Singapore.
